Quarterbacks (3)

Philip RiversKellen Clemens, Brad Sorensen

Will Brad Sorensen be part of this roster? That will be the question. I can see the team going either way and I will leave him around unless the team is able to find someone to pick up off of waivers.

Running Backs (4)

Ryan MathewsDanny WoodheadDonald Brown, Marion Grice

Branden Oliver only showed flash in the game against the Dallas Cowboys defense. The Cowboys barely have a defense and Oliver wasn’t even touched on some of those huge runs. Grice stepped up in the final preseason game and showed his potential finally. Was it enough to win a final roster spot. I think yes. Oliver still has a chance to make the roster as a return man.

Tight Ends (4)

Antonio GatesLadarius GreenDavid JohnsonJohn Phillips

John Phillips was the only question mark on the roster and he showed his worth in the final preseason game.

Wide Receivers (6)

Keenan AllenMalcom FloydEddie Royal, Dontrelle Inman, Vincent BrownSeyi Ajirotutu

This team has to keep Ajirotutu on the roster. He is too valuable on special teams and can make plays on offense.

Offensive Linemen (8)

Nick HardwickD.J. FlukerKing DunlapChad Rinehart, Willie Smith, Chris Watt, Johnnie TroutmanRich Ohrnberger

Since Jeromey Clary is starting out the season on the PUP list, the team needs someone to fill in at the swing tackle role. Big Willie Style likely won the job in the preseason.
