Packers' 2015 53-Man Roster: Nine OL and 11 DBs make the team out of camp

New, comments

There are certainly a few surprises on the Packers' roster, which is sure to evolve over the next few weeks.

The Green Bay Packers have finally made their final cuts to get the active roster down to 53 men, as the teams' full list of cuts have finally been announced. As such, we can now determine the 53 players who have made the Packers' final roster.

However, the Packers' roster will of course be in a state of flux over the next few weeks. The team has two suspended players who will not count against the 53-man roster until they come off suspensions. Datone Jones will be reinstated following the week one contest, while Letroy Guion will be back on the 53 after week three. Those players' suspensions are likely reasons why the Packers kept just five defensive linemen on the 53-man roster.

Then there is the possibility of adding a player or two who has released by another team. Wide receiver and former Packer James Jones is one possible add.

As for some other surprises, the Packers kept nine offensive linemen, thanks in large part to the good play of Josh Walker in camp. They also kept a surprising number of defensive backs - eleven - as both Demetri Goodson and Chris Banjo rounded out those groups. Finally, the Packers will carry two undrafted rookies on the roster: running back Alonzo Harris and cornerback LaDarius Gunter.

Here is the entire roster as it currently sits, which consists of 25 players on offense, 25 on defense, and three specialists. Finally, keep in mind that the players noted as being Suspended or on Injured Reserve do not count against the 53-man limit.
