    Looks about right to me, although admittedly I'm not as well versed in our depth as you are (particularly on the offensive line.)

    Josh Baker over both Cumberland and the Aussie.

    This guy is a hidden gem.

    I'm not as close to the team as you are, but the one and done for Powell that you are apparently projecting surprises me.

    I think that's a little light on the TEs. From reading about Sparano, he likes a lot of 2 TE sets with those big blocking type TEs--I think we're going to sign a few of them before camp and at least one will make the team.

    Love Keller, Cumberland and Smith--but I don't think any of them are prototypical blocking TEs.

    Josh Baker is going to be a stud.
    He makes it even if it means cutting the Terminator, Cumberland or Aussie.

    Yup, Baker is making the team. Either as a reserve TE, or possibly as the starting FB over Conner.

    Jay Richardson not eligible for the practice squad. JMo No self respecting ground and Pound team goes with three Rbs only. Jets are only keeping five Wr's when your primarily going to be a running team. Jets won't keep that many Lbs or Dbs. (going to be one less in either group)

    FB is an interesting possibility.

    He reminds me of Jim Finn from the Giants a few years ago, but he is quicker.

    He is a very good pass catcher, I am dying for them to get him on the field more this year.

    Baker is going to make the team in place of Conner.

    One less LB and one more DB.

    I don't see us carrying 9 O-linemen. One of them to the P-squad and I think we keep Powell for another year.


    I really like most of it.

    Baker is a very versatile player, and he's a talent. Could be a FB/Hback/TE, saving a roster spot or two to use at other positions. He has very good hands, can block and runs well. Very intrigued to see what he can develop into in our system.

    The Jets would be playing a dangerous game if they kept less than 9 olineman on their 53 man roster. A couple injuries and Ground and pound plus the passing game goes down like a house of cards. You don't neglect both lines for skill positions. The game is still won and lost in the trenches.

    He just might make The Terminator expendable. Baker isd now also a FB and he can catch out of the backfield very well. If his blocking is up to par Conner is gone.

    Good job overall, but too heavy on pass / light on ground and pound.

    Long way off for this but Ill bite...

    Conner does not make the team, Sparano hates fb's.

    Baker along with Keller and Cumberland are the roster te's

    Simms is a training camp arm, nothing more. GJ Kinne makes the ps

    I think we drop a WR and keep Powell at RB.
