Ranking Every New England Patriot's Chance of Making the Final 53-Man Roster

The New England Patriots still have one preseason game left to play, versus the New York Giants on Wednesday, but the team’s roster cutdown to 53 players is also fast approaching, with that deadline being on Friday.

The Patriots have begun making cuts to meet the 80-man roster deadline on Monday, but with only 85 active players on the roster as of Saturday, the much more important deadline is the upcoming mass cutdown that will take place on Thursday or Friday.

Many of the team’s returning veterans, major free-agent signings and early draft picks should have spots locked up on the final roster, but for many other players, there looms a large cloud of uncertainty as to whether they can survive the final cuts.

In this slideshow, we take a look at every player on the roster, ranking players from 1 to 83 for their odds of being on the Patriots’ final squad. An additional player included in these rankings is veteran right guard Brian Waters, a Pro Bowler last year who has not yet reported to Patriots training camp.

Note: As of the time of publication, three Patriots players—defensive tackle Gerard Warren, cornerback Ross Ventrone and safety Josh Barrett—have been unofficially reported as released by Shalise Manza Young of the Boston Globe (via Twitter). They were not included in the rankings.
