Ok, now that the draft is done, its time to predict the roster. Although most positions are pretty well set, its always interesting to guess the last 10 roster positions.

* Denotes a starter. Bold indicates on the 53 man roster.

QB(3):: Pretty easy here. Callahan sticks because Hundley is close to be traded.
- Locks: Rodgers*, Hundley
- Bubble: Callahan


RB(5):
- Locks: Montgomery*, Ripkowski, Williams, Jones
- Bubble: Mays, Kerridge
- Others: Crockett - can't stay healthy.

TE(3): With no draft picks here, I think there is little change of any challengers.
- Locks: Bennett*, Rodgers, Kendricks
- Bubble:
- Others: Sandland

WR(6): I'm almost tempted to put Cobb on the Bubble for his cost, but he is still a weapon.
- Locks: Nelson*, Adams*, Cobb*, Allison, Yancy
- Bubble: Davis, Janis, Dupre
- Others: Goodley, McCaffrey

OL(9): Evans is a near lock, but he needs to fit in first.
- Locks: Bulaga*, Linsley*, Taylor*, Bakhtiari*, Spriggs
- Bubble: Evans*, Amichia, Murphy, Barclay, Patrick,
- Others: Flores, McCray,

DL(5): If JF plays half-way decent and eveyone stays healthy, it wouldn't surprise me to cut Guion. But I like the talent we have here.
- Locks: Daniels*, Clark*, Lowry*, Adams,
- Bubble: Jean Francois, Price
- Out: Ringo
- Suspension: Guion

OLB(5):Keep as many as possible.
- Locks: Perry*, Matthews*, Fackerell, Biegel
- Bubble: Elliot, Gilbert
- Out:

ILB(4): Not much depth. And an UDFA could sneak in. Or we add another OLB and use Matthews (Clay) here.
- Locks: Ryan*, Martinez*, Thomas
- Bubble: Tripp
- Out: Matthews (Derrick)

S(4): Last spot comes down to last year's UDFA speedsters. Even though Brice had more PT last year, I'm picking Evans.
- Locks: HHCD*, Burnett*, Jones
- Bubble: Evans, Brice
- Out: Whitehead

CB(6): House starts while King develops. Goodson can't stay healthy and loses to Hawkins or an UDFA (not listed here)
- Locks: Randall*, House*, Rollins, King, Gunter,
- Bubble: Goodson, Hawkins
- Out: Waters

ST (3): Toss-up between Pepper and Hart for LS. I predict Vogel beats out Schum.
- Locks: Crosby
- Bubble: Pepper, Hart, Schum, Vogel
- Out:

I think they keep Evans and Brice and skip the other ilb... Burnett and Jones will be playing down there a lot.

Yeah, I considered that. With Matthews playing ILB too, it makes sense that we only keep 3 traditional ILB...

I'd still love to see them dabble with Janis at CB and special teams ace, like Bush a few years ago. His speed, tackling ability, fearless play, and inconsistent route running might actually have a chance then.

Schum was released today; he apparently missed most of OTAs with a back injury. I have to assume the Packers will bring in another punter, if only as a "camp leg."

The local guy from last year, name is escaping me (Morell?). They should bring him back in to camp. I personally though he had won the job last season.

Mortell, i agree they should bring him in. All that i read about Vogel was that he had a terrible combine which cost him being drafted so you need to bring in competition. I wouldn't be suprised if the packers brought in a veteran at the end of the preseason anyway.
