    2) Wyms?
    Haven't seen much from him...I guess he's an 8 yr vet, but, Douzable has been better.
    Wyms probably makes it by default.
    Let's place Douzable on the PS...Dumford's out

    Wyms can play DE or DT, and with Robison still coming back from injury, I think Wyms is a lock.

    3)
    Not sure about 4 TE's.
    Still think Dugan's a boat anchor.
    I boot him, and bring Frampton or Erin up

    Dugan is really our backup FB who can also play the blocking TE role.
    I think either he or Tahi sticks, and Tahi hasn't distinguished himself in camp this year (but is probably a better receiver than Dugan).

    SKOL VIKINGS!

    53-man Roster Projections

    Here's Mine....let's see yours

    53-Man Roster Projection (Version 2.0)
    Here's Version 1 if you missed it - http://www.capitaljscorner.com...man-roster.html

    Offense:

    Quarterback (3)
    Tarvaris Jackson
    Gus Frerotte
    John David Booty

    Running Back (3)
    Adrian Peterson
    Chester Taylor
    Maurice Hicks

    Full Back (2)
    Thomas Tapeh
    Jeff Dugan (also TE)

    Tight End (3)
    Visanthe Shiancoe
    Jim Kleinsasser
    Garrett Mills

    Wide Receiver (5)
    Bernard Berrian
    Sidney Rice
    Bobby Wade
    Aundrae Allison
    Martin Nance (This could easily be Robert Ferguson, but truthfully Nance deserves the spot).

    Offensive Tackle (4)
    Bryant McKinnie
    Marcus Johnson
    Ryan Cook
    Drew Radovich (if healthy, otherwise Chase Johnson)

    Offensive Guard (4)
    Steve Hutchinson
    Anthony Herrera
    Artis Hicks
    Brian Daniels

    Center (2)
    Matt Birk
    John Sullivan

    Defense:

    Defensive End (4)
    Jared Allen
    Ray Edwards
    Brian Robison
    Otis Grigsby

    Defensive Tackle (5)
    Kevin Williams
    Pat Williams
    Fred Evans
    Ellis Wyms
    Letroy Guion

    Line Backers (6)
    Chad Greenway
    E.J. Henderson
    Ben Leber
    Derrick Pope
    Erin Henderson
    Vinny Ciurciu (should be Rufus Alexander)

    Safety (4)
    Darren Sharper
    Madieu Williams
    Tyrell Johnson
    Eric Frampton

    Cornerback (5)
    Antoine Winfield
    Cedric Griffin
    Charles Gordon
    Benny Sapp
    Marcus McCauley

    Special Teams:

    Kicker (1)
    Ryan Longwell

    Punter (1)
    Chris Kluwe

    Long Snapper (1)
    Cullen Loeffler

    Just missing the cut:

    Michael Boulware (S) - signed early in the off-season before the team drafted Tyrell Johnson. He's been buried on the depth chart throughout camp and hasn't shown much in the pre-season. The injury to Madieu Williams might keep him around, but Eric Frampton has been ahead of him thus far and is a great special teams player.

    Rufus Alexander (LB) - has looked solid in the pre-season, but unfortunately might lose a battle with coaches favorite Vinny Ciurciu. Also admittedly is not fully recovered from his knee injury.

    Nafahu Tahi (FB) - there's no point in keeping him when Dugan, Kleinsasser, and Mills can all fill in at FB if needed

    Chase Johnson (OT) - outperformed by UDFA Drew Radovich in camp. Could stick around if Radovich is not healthy by the regular season. He's a candidate for the practice squad if he clears waivers.

    Robert Ferguson (WR) - outperformed by youngster Martin Nance. Ferguson is a good blocker, but wouldn't see the field much as a 5th WR anyways.

    Jaymar Johnson (WR) - showed flashes in the punt return game, but ultimately he's still raw and could use a year on the practice squad

    Re: 53-man Roster Projections

    I could work with that roster as well.
    I like the format/how you gave the bubble guys at the end.
    Great job my friend.
    ;D
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Re: Final Roster Predictions

    Erin Henderson will be on this team.
    There is no way he gets cut, ESPECIALLY with the loss of Farwell.
    He played outstanding on defense in the Baltimore game and has been promoted to 2 first team special teams duties.
    Erin Henderson = Minnesota Viking in 2008

    Why not?? Did you forget that Hicks can play OT. He is the most likely guy to fill in for B-macs suspention

    For one we always keep 4 and Hicks was on the roster last year plus I might be wrong but isn't there a league minimum of 4?

    LOL!!!

    No, dude, the Vikings could have a 53-man roster comprised entirely of long-snappers and the NFL wouldn't give a shit - as long as those 53 long-snappers are paid up to the minimum level of the cap that the Vikings must spend.
