Projected Cincinnati Bengals' Final 53-Man Roster, Pre-Training Camp Edition
USA TODAY Sports

There are only days before training camp begins, so it is, of course, time to start speculating what the Cincinnati Bengals' roster is going to look like.  The veterans on the team have an advantage (or disadvantage, in some cases) because of their prior experience on an NFL field.

That leaves a lot of questions surrounding the rookies on the team.  What's to come of later-round draft selections such as James Wright and Marquis Flowers?  Can any of the UDFAs appear on the roster?  Those are the guys who don't often get much attention but somehow wind up working out better than anyone.

What has been difficult in trimming this roster to 53 men is how talented and deep the current roster is.  It's hard to imagine that the team will go with more than four running backs—assuming that Giovani Bernard, Jeremy Hill and Cedric Peerman are locks to make the team, that leaves three talented backs in BenJarvus Green-Ellis, Rex Burkhead and UDFA James Wilder Jr.  Which of those guys will receive the nod?  Will more than one, or will none of them?

That's what makes this part of the offseason so intriguing and enticing—how can we expect the 53-man roster to look at this point in time in Cincinnati?
