As we all know, John Oesher is the lead writer for Jaguars.com, but he also handles the CBS Rapid Reports for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Recently, he updated with who he thought was in and out on the Jaguars final 53. Let's take a look at his guess.
QB-3- David Garrard, Blaine Gabbert, Luke McCown
No real surprise here, I think this is what most people expected.
RB-6- Maurice Jones-Drew, Rashad Jennings, Deji Karim, Greg Jones, Montell Owens, Brock Bolen
Agin, so real surprises. DuJuan Harris will be a tough cut, but it's possible he could wind up on the practice squad.
WR-5- Mike Thomas, Jason Hill, Cecil Shorts, Jarett Dillard, Kassim Osgood
I actually think the team may keep six receivers, but if it's just five guys, I think this will be the five.
TE-3- Marcedes Lewis, Zach Miller, Zach Potter
I think Joey Haynos has a legit chance to make the roster. He got significant time against the Buffalo Bills.
OL-8- Eugene Monroe, Will Rackley, Brad Meester, Uche Nwaneri, Eben Britton, Guy Whimper, Jason Spitz, John Estes
I tend to think the team might go heavy on the offensive line, so I'd at Tony Moll as a possibility but hard to argue with this list.
DE-5- Aaron Kampman, Matt Roth, Jeremy Mincey, Austen Lane, Larry Hart
I would place Aaron Morgan over Larry Hart. Hart finally showed some pressure against the Bills... in the fourth quarter. He's been woefully unimpressive thus far and it seems like keeping him to save face on a guy you picked a year ago.
DT-5- Terrance Knighton, Tyson Alualu, D'Anthony Smith, Leger Douzable, C.J. Mosley
If the team keeps five defensive tackle, I'd pick Nate Collins as the fifth. I actually think he's played much better than Smith, who hasn't shown a ton coming back from his Achilles injury.
LB-6- Clint Session, Paul Posluszny, Daryl Smith, Russell Allen, Kyle Bosworth, Jacob Cutrera
I agree wholeheartedly with this list of linebackers, hard to argue anyone else.
CB-5- Rashean Mathis, Derek Cox, Drew Coleman, William Middleton, Scottie McGee
I'll be shocked if McGee makes the roster over someone like Kevin Rutland or even David Jones. McGee offers one thing and one thing only, but he was also a draft pick in 2010...
S-5- Dawn Landry, Courney Greene, Chris Prosinski, Don Carey, Rod Issac
Depending on if the move to safety is permanent for Issac, this is likely what I would pick for the safety group as well minus Don Carey. I don't know why this team would still hold on to Carey. I'd drop Carey and keep an extra offensive lineman.
ST-3- Josh Scobee, Matt Turk, Jeremy Cain.
No argument here.
