QB Thad Lewis

QB Kellen Moore

OG Rob Sims
OG Larry Warford
OG Bill Nagy
OG Rodney Austin
OG Dylan Gandy
OG Jake Scott
OG Derek Hardman
OG Darren Keyton

C Dominic Raiola
C Leroy Harris

OG/C - i grouped these together because of Harris's ability to play both guard and center if needed i think Austin beats out Gandy and the still injured Nagy for the 5th spot


DE Ziggy Ansah
DE Jason Jones
DE Willie Young
DE Devin Taylor
DE Ronnell Lewis
DE Israel Idonije
DE Braylon Broughton

DE - i think they keep 5 ends and only 3 DTs due to the fact Jones and Idonije can play inside if needed.
