Who will be the 11 men on the squad?

It’s less important than settling the roster and ensuring everyone’s healthy, but the composition of the practice squad is always one of the most interesting story lines of the preseason. The art of projecting it gets tricker, frankly, with every passing week.

That’s because we’re not sure how much stock to put into any particular preseason performance, and we’re not sure what the coaching staff is truly thinking. All we can do is go by our best, most educated guesses.

Here’s my best guess, based on what we’ve seen through two weeks of preseason, and my own, always perfect hunches. I’ve removed Deji Olatoye, who I think will make the roster, and Daniel Brunskill, who I think will lose a spot in favor of Andreas Knappe. Otherwise, you know the names on here, because I’ve had them on here before.

  • CB Jarnor Jones
  • CB/S Akeem King
  • DE J’Terius Jones
  • DT Taniela Toupu
  • LB Jermaine Grace
  • OL Andreas Knappe
  • OL D.J. Tialavea
  • QB Alek Torgersen
  • WR Marvin Hall
  • WR Reggie Davis
  • TE Alex Gray

Let’s hear your best guess.
