Packers 2013 Roster Cut Prediction: APC's Take on the Final 53-Man Roster

Mike McGinnis

APC gives its final predictions on this year's opening-week roster as the Packers' deadline to cut down to 53 approaches.

Well, it's almost time - in a little over one day, the Green Bay Packers will be down to 53 players and we'll be able to get ready to focus on the regular season. With that, we at Acme Packing Company would be remiss if we failed to issue our own 53-man roster projection, so here we go.

Note that this roster prediction was not unanimous, and is a combination of projections from my own rankings alont with those of five other APC writers.
