Buccaneers Vs. Redskins: Rookies, Players On Bubble Look To Make Final Roster

Thursday's Buccaneers vs. Redskins NFL preseason game offers the last chance for the Redskins' many rookies and others to make their case to make the final 53-man roster. The final batch of NFL cuts will take place on Saturday, and 27 players will ultimately get the ax (though eight can be re-signed afterwards to the practice squad). That makes Thursday's game very important for a number of players on the current 80-man roster.

CSN Washington's Rich Tandler identifies 17 players who he believes are on the bubble to make the team. They are as follows:

  1. RB Keiland Williams
  2. WR Niles Paul
  3. WR Donte Stallworth
  4. OL Maurice Hurt
  5. OL Erik Cook
  6. RB Evan Royster
  7. FB Mike Sellers
  8. WR Brandon Banks
  9. DE Darrion Scott
  10. DE Doug Worthington
  11. DT Chris Neild
  12. LB Rob Jackson
  13. LB Markus White
  14. CB Brandyn Thompson
  15. CB Byron Westbrook
  16. S DeJon Gomes
  17. S Chris Horton

Over at Hogs Haven, Daniel Shiferaw specifically looks at the 12 Redskins rookies and their chances of making the team. Shiferaw assumes that top pick Ryan Kerrigan, third-round pick Leonard Hankerson and fourth-round pick Roy Helu are on the team. Second-round pick Jarvis Jenkins is on injured reserve.
