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

New, comments

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

Mike McGinnis

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.

Position Quantity Starters Reserves
Quarterback 2 Aaron Rodgers Vince Young
Running Back 4 Eddie Lacy Johnathan Franklin, Alex Green, James Starks
Fullback 1 John Kuhn
Wide Receiver 6 Randall Cobb, James Jones, Jordy Nelson Jarrett Boykin, Jeremy Ross, Tyrone Walker
Tight End 4 Jermichael Finley Brandon Bostick, Matthew Mulligan, Ryan Taylor
Offensive Tackle 3 David Bakhtiari, Don Barclay Marshall Newhouse
Guards/Centers 4 Josh Sitton, Evan Dietrich-Smith, T.J. Lang Greg Van Roten
Defensive Linemen 7 B.J. Raji, Ryan Pickett, C.J. Wilson Mike Daniels, Johnny Jolly, Datone Jones, Mike Neal
Outside Linebackers 4 Clay Matthews, Nick Perry Dezman Moses, Nate Palmer
Inside Linebackers 5 A.J. Hawk, Brad Jones Sam Barrington, Rob Francois, Jamari Lattimore
Cornerbacks 6 Sam Shields, Tramon Williams Jarrett Bush, Casey Hayward, Davon House, Micah Hyde
Safeties 4 Morgan Burnett, Jerron McMillian Chris Banjo, M.D. Jennings
Specialists 3 Mason Crosby, Brett Goode, Tim Masthay
