The Final 53: Patriots Game 1 Roster Prediction

The Final 53: Patriots Game 1 Roster Prediction

Very few things are permanent in life. An NFL roster is no different. Just like we can guarantee that the sun will rise in the morning, there will also be a roster transaction by one of the thirty-two teams. This especially rings true around the 3rd and 4th preseason games where players careers finish with not so much as a whisper. As such, predicting a 53-man roster for a team has its pitfalls, but I’ll have a go anyway.

Just as an aside, the roster you see below is for game 1 against the Cardinals, so a few caveats will be in place:

  1. Tom Brady is suspended (just in case you missed it) and therefore will not be a part of the 53.
  2. I will only pick from players currently on the roster, although it is very likely that players will be added.
