    BABY J
    Cousin of future Hall of Famer Edgerrin James and also from DA U
    James went for over 100 and a score in the opener vs the Rams​
    He got 5 carries in limited action vs. the Raiiiiideeerrs and averaged around 6 a carry.​
    He is looking like he will be given a permanent locker in a few weeks.​

    CB Mario Butler

    He's been working his ass off in camp. We love his versatility as he can play both CB and Safety.
    He might just win a roster spot

    Michael Brockers is trying to erase that "reach label" that some tabbed him with when the Rams took him in the first round.

    He already has two sacks early this preseason. Hopefully the future will be bright for this young man.

    Barnes has registered a forced fumble in both preseason games, including a strip sack of Tony Romo last night. Guy is really pushing Jarred Johnson for the ROLB spot. He is nasty.​

    Rookie kicker John Potter is making a strong case for the Bills to cut Rian Lindell.

    Also

    WR David Clowney's fumble issues could open a slot for WR Ruvell Martin

    CORNELIUS INGRAM

    Recently signed Free Agent TE Cornelius Ingram has looked great in practice and seemed as if him and Tebow had some kind of chemistry last week but it could be because they are both Gators. He lacks the blocking skill but his athletic frame and speed sold the Jets on him since they cut two other tight ends last week leaving Ingram,Baker, and Keller left. Looks like Ingram has earned his a spot of this team.

    WR #17 Chastin West
    [​IMG]
    West is entering his 3rd year in the NFL out of Fresno State and he has been a 2nd half star through the 2 preseason games so far. He has 8 receptions for 220 yards and 4 TDs against the Giants and Saints. His performance has taken him from borderline cut to putting him in contention for the #4 WR spot on the Jaguars this season.​

    FS Markelle Martin​
    [​IMG]
    Martin has lit people up, he has picked quarterbacks off. He reads plays like a librarian reads books. He has all the physical tools to be a top player in the NFL. Titans will have to find a way to get him some work at Safety this season.​
    WR James Kirkendoll​
    [​IMG]
    Head coach loved this guy in college. His speed and hands should make any coach happy. He came in wondering if he would get a spot on the roster. Now the question is when will this kid get a start?​

    [​IMG] <-- when I first looked at this image, I thought this might have been T.O. turns out it is Chris Owusu.

    This guy is someone I am starting to like more and more. He has good size, good speed, he just needs to work on his ball skills and route running.

    Tight End Niles Paul has been extremely reliable as a backup to Fred Davis thus far for me.

    He may look like an asshat, but Damien Berry played really well against New England.​

    Danny Coale has come up HUGE for the Giants in the Preseason. Expect him to get reps on reps in the regular season​

    The Bills cut David Clowney and kept TJ Graham instead, Naaman Roosevelt also made team with the Bills cutting Derek Hagen.

    John Potter also made the team.

    I was trying to keep the depth of the roster as close to what they are irl as possible but I failed in that attempt.

    Packers tried to focuse mainly on depth this preseason since every battle was already won. But my Diamond in the rough has to be BJ Coleman. Kid played a huge amount of the preseason and lead two come from behind victories down 17 and 14 i think. Sky is the limit for him as he comes in as a 66 but plays like a 85 already. Raw ability is always a nice place to start but there is something in this kid that might be magic.
