    I tried to compile one today based on the first week of training camp. Lots of tough calls but here's where I am:

    QB: (2) Collins, Young
    RB: (4) Johnson, White, Ringer, Henry
    FB: (1) Hall
    TE: (4) Scaife, Crumpler, Cook, Stevens
    WR: (6) Gage, Washington, Britt, Jones, Davis, Hawkins
    OL: (7) Mawae, Roos, Stewart, Amano, Scott, Harris, Kroppog
    K: (1) Bironas

    DE: (5) Kearse, KVB, Hayes, Ford, Birdine
    DT: (5) Jones, Brown, Haye, Vickerson, Marks
    LB: (6) Tulloch, Bulluck, Thornton, Keglar, McGrath, Fowler
    CB: (6) Harper, Finnegan, Faggins, Mouton, McCourty, Williams
    S: (4) Hope, Griffin, Fuller, Nickey
    P: (1) Hentrich
    LS: (1) Amato

    I think we can begin to see where the camp battles are:

    Young vs. Ramsey
    Birdine vs. Ball
    Nickey vs. Harris
    Williams vs. McCourty

    Lots can change over the next few weeks.

    I think Ramsey sticks along with Young. I don't think Dinger will want to have no one behind Vince.

    Jeff, your numbers say 5 safeties, but I only see 4 listed.

    We'll keep 3 qb's thanks to that extra spot.

    No way. If Collins goes down, they might pick up Ramsey if he's free, but I highly doubt there's 3 QBs this year, for the simple fact that 2 of them are worthless at any point. We have so many people at DL, WR and LB that can help on ST and provide some big plays, like Ball, Vickerson, Chris Davis, etc. That it would be futile to keep 3 quarterbacks..Unless they're really afraid of Ramsey being swooped up by someone else. In that case, A. Mortensen will always be available.:ha:

    Yup. I originally had Tuff Harris but decided to remove him and that had me at 52. Maybe that puts Ramsey in but I added Cary Williams back at CB instead.

    If the Titans don't believe Young is the #2, then I don't see him being a part of the final roster.

    I would hope so. I remember the commentators talking about how a change of scenery would be good for him, comparing him to Collins, how he had a bad attitude, how moving on helped him,
    but Young is a completely different type of player. People whose strong suit is being an accurate and strong passer can play well into their 30s, and succeed. Let's just say being accurate has not been VY's strong suit. Once he loses those wheels, he's done.

    Long story short, if Vince is going to be a good player, he'd better get busy. His window is much shorter than others'.

    I think the Titans would absolutely fear Ramsey being picked up by another team. He's a solid #2 guy and valuable insurance while the Titans continue their evaluation of Vince.

    Is Little still eligible for PS? I could see Henry being cut and Little being put on the PS to either get us an extra QB or an extra o-lineman. If Harris is already in use (and Mawae is still suspect), we might want the extra insurance. Velasco, Murphy, Lekkekerkerkereker, I really don't know who would be the next backup, but I could see one of them staying.

    I could also see Allred making it at LB, but I'm not sure. He had several special teams roles last year, I guess it depends on who else is showing up there. McGrath's fumble recovery really showcased him last night.
