A lot of the excitement around training camp is a result of watching 90 football players battle it out for a finite number of roster spots. There’s an old adage that “anyone can make the roster”, but that’s not entirely true. Some players are assured a roster spot no matter how bad they look in camp. On the other hand there are some players that will take the field that have no shot at making the 53-man roster even if they outperform most veteran players. There are a number of factors at work for each roster decision. As the first week of training camp progresses I take a look at where each player ranks on the current roster in relation to one another and layout their chances of making the final roster.
