With one week left to go in the preseason, our earlier hopes of maintaining health on the roster have not held up. Only a few rookies from the draft class have seen time in both preseason game, and the two first round picks are projected to miss time in the regular season. Injuries at wide receiver could make it easier for at least one of the preseason crushes to make the 53-man roster.
Drew Lock has played well this preseason and even has some fans wondering if he could be better than Geno. But is there anything that Drew could do at this point to play his way into the starting lineup? Who else could play their way into a roster spot in the game coming up against the Packers? One UDFA wide receiver was highly touted coming out of high school and had a nice showing against the Cowboys. He could make the type of special teams impact that ends up making him worthy of a roster spot.
Mookie Alexander of Field Gulls has published a potential 53-man roster going into the final game of the preseason. We run through and see where we agree and disagree with some of the final picks to make the team. In our Do Better segment we learn about an annoying black bear and a drone with questionable motives. Better at Life honors go out to a fishing charter and Richard Sherman for one of the best interviews of Pete Carroll that we've heard.
