A look at the roster: Pre-draft cut down to 53

Fifty-nine players are currently on the roster, and with eight draft picks looming, that brings the total to 67.

I was curious to see what the numbers were for each position. Here is the breakdown of the 28 offensive, 28 defensive and three special teams players currently up for the 53-man squad.

(Assuming all draft picks make the squad, 14 will need to be cut. An Asterisk will indicate someone I see will not make the squad.)

I know not all draft picks will make the squad with some probably making it to the practice Squad. I selected six of the above to go to practice squad, leaving two spots left over for rookies next season. Please let me know what you guys think looking at the pre-draft roster.
