-I don't have Alfonzo Dennard making the roster. The presence of Tavon Wilson/Will Allen should put him on the practice squad. Sure, he is a great physical CB, I just think other players and their versatility should cover the slot CB roll well. If we need another CB, we can appoint him.

-No Jermaine Cunningham. Tough call between Markell Carter and Cunngham. Markell Carter pushes him out, and comes onto the 2012 team with high hopes.

-Nate Ebner makes the team...Special Teams master. And I expect him to eventually build up a rotation with the safety class. Not this year however. Hidden potential he has. I think Mike Vrabel saw it too.

-Will Allen is with the safety class. He is a fantastic cover corner. Not an interception guy but again a great cover guy. He is spending time with the safety coaches. Would be an ideal free safety on the team.
