We finished our safety projection post with one roster spot left, and it wasn't an accident. We've gone through every position and picked out the 52 players we feel are most likely to make the Green Bay Packers 53-man opening day roster, and we're going to leave the last spot up to you guys.

So far we've taken 25 offensive players, 24 defensive players and three special teams players. Wide receiver has plenty of depth with six players, but we made a tough call in cutting one of the youngsters that everyone's so high on. Before you make your vote, here are some things to think about.

- The Packers will get Mike Neal back from suspension for Week 5 and Anthony Hargrove back for Week 10, so it wouldn't be surprising to see the team take a seventh defensive lineman from what we have so far to start the season, even if the team doesn't think he's the 53rd best player (or better) available.

- There are a lot of people that think the Packers will take seven receivers, for good reason. We had to cut a very good one.

- We started with Andrew Quarless on the PUP list, where he will not count against the 53-man roster to start the season. We don't have a tight end up for vote, but it's something worth considering.

- There's a very good chance the Packers could sign a veteran running back before the end of preseason, depending on Alex Green's health and who's out there.

- We cut some very good offensive lineman that might get signed to 53-man rosters by teams before we can add them to the practice squad.

- The Packers could make a surprising move and take three quarterbacks on their 53-man roster if B.J. Coleman has a strong preseason and they believe he will get snapped up before they can sign him to their practice squad.

With all of that in mind, vote away. Who do you think should win the final roster spot?
