Patriots Roster Prediction #23: OT/OG George Bussey

Player Name: OT/OG George Bussey

Experience: 1 Season in the NFL, with the New England Patriots

Past Role: Bussey spent his rookie season on the IR due to an injury. In college, he was a one time second team All-Big East tackle and a two time first team All-Big East tackle. In pre-season, Bussey has been used as a second string tackle.

Predicted Role: Although his small size (he's only 6-2) may prevent him from being a great tackle, he provides great depth at both the guard and tackle position. This prediction spot was initially going to go to Nick Kaczur, who was expected to be starting Left Guard before his terrible back injury. Bussey has been the next best tackle in camp, behind Matt Light and Sebastian Vollmer and has earned the role of top back-up. His ability to play guard adds value and earns him a roster spot. Should Kaczur not be able to play this season, Bussey should provide back-up a tackle and guard.

Predicted Season Numbers: 0 Games Started, 5 Games Played

Predicted Depth Chart: #3 , #4 G

Summary: Bussey should be behind Light and Vollmer at Tackle and should be behind Connolly, Neal and Ohrnberger at guard. His great versatility should earn him a roster spot.

 

Note: If Nick Kaczur gets cleared for the team (I think he'll be PUPed), then Bussey might not make the roster.
