Some quick observations

This roster is incredibly young. Only one player is over the age of 30. There are 16 rookies, including all 12 of their draft picks this year. Only 29 players have more than two years of experience. There isn’t even a position group without a rookie.

Only two quarterbacks? That’s a bit of a head scratcher considering the risks around COVID-19, but I’d imagine Josh Dobbs gets re-signed to the practice squad and maybe even an additional signing in the coming days.

Three running backs is thin for that position, but I’d imagine some practice squad competition as well as a signing here too. Same goes for tight end.

They’re stacked at defensive line while going with only eight offensive linemen — those numbers would have been reversed in previous years.

Buckle up for 2020, folks.
