Digger posted a nice article right here. In this article, he states, "If you're really brave predict the cuts down to 53."

There are 56 players on here. We are only allowed 53. So I put a couple of positional battles of who I think will be fighting for their jobs come training camp.

Now I'll admit that I have no idea who is practice squad elligble and who is not. So here is my best shot. If I mess it up, then I apologize.
Alright there you go. Take a look and let's start debating who will be gone by the start of the season. I would bet that there is sure to be someone who is going to get cut and we will say "Wow". Question is, "Who?"
