A look into the BBV crystal ball

New, comments

One day until training camp starts for real, and that means it's time to go out on a limb.

Who knows what can happen between now and the Sept. 9 season opener with injuries, waiver pickups, etc. With that in mind, though, let's look into the Big Blue View crystal ball and see how close we can come to predicting what the Giants Opening Day roster will look like.

Here's my guess at what the 53-man squad will look like when it lines up against the Miami Dolphins.
