Now that OTAs are in the books and with mandatory minicamp set to begin, now is a good time to revisit the roster projections that I made last month and see how the battle leaders are changing. I have included the list with a few roster updates. As always, your thoughts on my breakdown are welcomed and encouraged.

OFFENSIVE ROSTER PROJECTION Pos Starter Backup Practice Squad Miss The Team QB Andy Dalton Bruce Gradkowski Tony Pike Zac Robinson, Tyler Hanson LT Andrew Whitworth Dennis Roland Matthew O’Donnell Landon Walker, Chris Riley,
Mike Ryan, Ben Bojicic, Matt Murphy, Trevor Robinson LG Travelle Wharton Otis Hudson C Kyle Cook Reggie Stephens RG Kevin Zeitler Clint Boling RT Andre Smith Anthony Collins WR1 A.J. Green Mohamed Sanu Taveon Rogers Brandon Tate, Kashif Moore,
Vidal Hazelton, Justin Hilton WR2 Marvin Jones Andrew Hawkins Armon Binns WR3 Jordan Shipley Ryan Whalen TE Jermaine Gresham Orson Charles
Donald Lee Colin Cochart Josh Chichester, Bryce Davis FB Chris Pressley James Develin, Jourdan Brooks RB BenJarvus Green-Ellis
Bernard Scott Brian Leonard
Rodney Stewart Dan Herron Cedric Peerman, Aaron Brown

Some notes on my projections:

QB: I thought that the former UC product Tony Pike would seize on the opportunity to make an NFL roster, but his past injuries seem to have doomed any chance for him to play in the league. On the flip side, Tyler Hansen, who I thought had little chance to make the cut, got some nice press in OTAs.

OL: The addition of Reggie Stephens will make for a very interesting numbers problem among the offensive linemen. Either he, Boling or Hudson will have to go. That is going to be a really tough call.

WR: Armon Binns continues to have good things said about him. Odds are strong that he will be moving up when we update the projections after minicamp.

RB: I keep questioning myself for having a solid special teams piece in Cedric Peerman missing the roster. They need a speedier guy like Stewart to back up Scott, but can he provide the same production as Peerman on teams?
