My 53-man Roster (1st post on BGN)

I've been reading BGN posts for years now. I had a glitch that wouldn't let me post and/or comment. Now that tech support has cleared that up, thanks again. I'm starting off with a bang and predicting the Eagles roster.

I saw a similar post today and can't agree from what I've seen/heard/read. There are certain "locks" that I think are far more up for grabs. For each possition I will also include an OMO (odd man out). So here it is with some additional commentary where I felt an explanation was needed:

QB -   Mike Vick      
       Mike Kafka (I feel the playcalling was not in his favor after Atl game last year)
       Nick Foles      
       Trent Edwards - OMO (If any QB is lost for season, he gets the call before Garcia)
RB -   Lesean McCoy
       Dion Lewis (Good back-up, same skillset as McCoy)
       Bryce Brown (Bigger Back with great speed)
       Chris Polk - OMO  (More likely to beat out Lewis than Brown)
FB -   Stanley Havili (Not Weaver, but similar)
WR -   Desean Jackson
       Jeremy Maclin
       Jason Avant
       Riley Cooper
       Marvin McNutt
       Damaris Johnson  (Punt Returner)
       Ronald Johnson - OMO  (If DJ goes down w/ lengthy injury, he gets a call)
TE -   Brent Celek
       Brett Brackett (Better size and hands than Clay)
       Clay Harbor - OMO (Kept if we eliminate FB position - I'd rather not)
T -    Demteress Bell (Left Side)
       Todd Herremans (Right Side)
       King Dunlap (Swing Tackle)
       Dennis Kelly - OMO
G -    Evan Mathis (Left Side)
       Danny Watkins (Right Side)
       Julian Vandervelde (Back-up G/C)
       Brandon Washington (Project)
C -    Jason Kelce
       Mike Gibson/Dallas Reynolds - OMO
DE -   Jason Babin
       Trent Cole
       Brandon Graham
       Vinny Curry
       Darryl Tapp (I like him staying...but he could become trade bate)
       Phillip Hunt - OMO (If Tapp is traded he makes roster)
DT -   Mike Patterson
       Cullen Jenkins
       Antonio Dixon
       Fletcher Cox
       Derek Landri
       Cedtric Thorton - OMO 
MLB -  DeMeco Ryans
       Jamar Chaney (Back-up Mid and Sam, or Start Weak)
WSLB - Brian Rolle 
       Casey Mathews
SSLB - Mychal Kendricks
       Moise Fokou
       Monte Simmons (Special Teams)
       Akeem Jordan - OMO
FS -   Nate Allen
       Kurt Coleman
       Phillip Thomas
SS -   OJ Atogwe
       Jaiquawn Jarret
       Colt Anderson - OMO (Starts season on PUP list)
CB -   Nnamdi Asomugha
       Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie
       Brandon Boykin
       Curtis Marsh
       Cliff Harris (Kick Returner)
       Brandon Hughes - OMO
K -    Alex Henery
P -    Ryan Tydlacka
       Chas Henry - OMO
LS -   Jon Dorenbos

IR -   Jason Peters
PUP -  Colt Anderson
It should be noted that all of my OMO players are likely to fight for their spot on the roster and, if they don't make the team, they will very likely be on our practice squad, brought back due to injury, or picked up by another team. Also, Joselio Hanson does not make this team, but is quickly scooped up by another. Thanks for reading my first of many. Please comment!
