Practice Squad (based off current players) – Brandon Reilly (WR), Breon Borders (CB), Marcus Murphy (RB), Robert Foster (WR), Deon Lacey (LB), Rickey Hatley (DT)

Brandon Reilly was a player that fans gravitated toward last season due to his performances in the preseason, but he didn’t get much of a chance despite a poor receiving corps. I think that the team will keep him, but I really like Robert Forster.

Despite being an undrafted free agent, Foster played under Brian Daboll at Alabama and is 6-foot-2 while running a 4.41 40-yard dash. That is the type of speed the team desperately needs and Foster could easily make the roster due to his size/speed combo.

Breon Borders is another player I can see making the team and not be surprised. He saw some time with the Bills last season and has talent. He could be groomed to take over as a starter down the line, but with not a ton of talent at corner, I have Pitts making the final roster over him. Marcus Murphy had a solid performance at the end of the season at Miami and could be a good find. He is young and the team needs more youth at the running back position.

Deon Lacey and Rickey Hatley are young players that provide depth and are projects. A few years down the road, Lacey could be a potential starter as he has great size at 6-foot-3, but they both need further development.
