Sabo Radio 60 puts out its final 53-man roster prediction, recaps 2020 training camp and dives into a little Sam Darnold film.

Two surprises have already hit the news. Jonotthan Harrison said goodbye to the organization on his Instagram account while James Burgess Jr. was released. While I got the former’s place on the 53-man roster prediction wrong, the latter is correct. (Remember, Burgess did not make the initial 53-man roster last year, either.)

Surprising news is sort of the point when dealing with roster predictions. It’s like living another NCAA Tournament pool on the other side of the calendar year. Nobody gets it right.

Nevertheless, we give it our best shot.

The quarterback decision is a biggie (thanks to Joe Flacco‘s injury status). Does Joe Douglas transfer the veteran to the Reserve/PUP list and lose him for the first six weeks of the season, or does he make the squad and squeeze out Mike White or potentially Josh Morgan (if Douglas is really feeling brave).

Offensive line will be another key decision. Will they keep the league minimum of eight or stretch it to nine or 10? Due to injuries, wide receiver, running back and cornerback will also feature big-time decisions.

Elsewhere, we put a bow on training camp 2020 and did into a little of Sam Darnold’s film. One of the kid’s issues he needs to overcome is the speed in which he hits an underneath outlet after he rolls through his progressions. There comes a point in time when he needs to give up on options No. 1 and 2 and hit that outlet—something he’s yet to master.

The deadline for NFL teams to cut down to 53 players is Saturday, 4 p.m. ET.
