Have never nailed this but let's give it a shot:

 

Offense (25)

 

QBs (2):

 

Eli Manning, Ryan Nassib

 

RBs(5):

 

Jennings

Williams

Vereen

Perkins

Darkwa

 

Notable cuts: Rainey

 

Darkwa outplayed Williams when it came to running the ball this preseason, but I don't think the Giants want to give up on Williams just yet. Rainey had ball security issues despite some big plays. I think the Giants wouldn't normally carry 5 RBs, but believe Darkwa played himself on the roster and that this battle will continue into the season.

 

WRs (6):

 

OBJ

Shepard

Cruz

Harris

Davis

King

 

Notable cuts: Roger Lewis

 

Lewis' performance was just uneven. King showed a lot with his opportunity. I don't think this one is close anymore, King seized the job definitively.

 

TEs/H-Back (4):

 

Donnell

Tye

Johnson

Adams

 

OL (8):

 

Flowers

Pugh

Richburg

Jerry

Newhouse

Beatty

Gettis

Hart

 

Defense (25)

 

DE (5):

 

JPP
Vernon

Odighizuwa

Wynn

Okwara (huge preseason, showed he could be a productive, versatile player)

 

Notable cuts: Maponga

 

DT (5):

 

Hankins

Harrison

Bromley

Nix

Hughes

 

I think?

 

LB (6):

 

Casillas

Kennard

Sheppard

Goodson

Herzlich

J.T. Thomas III

 

Notable cuts: Jasper Brinkley, Keenan Robinson

 

Not sure what to make of this group. Some of these guys are key contributors to special teams, too.

 

CBs (5):

 

DRC

Jenkins

Apple

Hall

Wade

 

 

Notable cuts: Deayon (PS), Leon McFadden

 

S (4):

 

Collins

Thompson

Thompson

Berhe

 

 

Specials (3):

 

P: Wing

K: Bullock

LS: DeOssie

That's 53 without a backup QB

 

No need for a backup QB just IR Nassib and he can still come to games and hold the clipboard

I wrestled a bit with Herzlich but he is a good special teamer which is why I have him making it. Brinkley could eqsily make this team, if there is someone that I think I have making it that I'm not as confident on it's JT Thomas III. I hope he stays because I think he's a better player than Brinkley.

Weird, I think Brinkley is the starter, and you have him not even making the team.

 

Shows how hard it is to really predict.

 

It could certainly be that way, and my bias may be effecting this because I like Sheppard at MLB more, as I believe him to be more athletic and rangey than Brinkley, and I believe Goodson will be taking that job before the season is over. But Brinkley certainly has credibility and is a good run-stopper, so he may make it. Toughest position group for me to project because there are so many veterans in this group.
