I think your cuts are fairly accurate.
I also can see Koets, Moss, Tollefson, and Blackburn getting the axe.
Not sure about Kehl yet but it wouldn't surprise me.

Kehl comes down to the numbers game. It is either him or Wilkinson to back up Boley at WLB. The difference is that Wilkinson is making plays when he is on the field, and he does have excellent speed and athleticism. The other thing is that Reese is a Wilkinson fan. Wilkinson has been doing a decent impression of Boley in recent weeks.

I can see passing packages with both Wilkinson and Boley on the field.

I don't think Bernard gets the axe at this point, he has flashed ability and the strength up front is a big part of a physical giants team that controls the line of scrimmage.

I originally had Tracy as a cut, it seemed from the OTAs that he needed a redshirt year (ie practice squad), but he has been doing pretty well. I think he gets a spot as a developmental SLB and special teamer.
No disrespect to Chase, but he isn't a true SLB which is really the only roster spot up for grabs.

However I could see some players being traded, either for late round picks, or players.
The key area on the radar at the moment are CB/S depth.

I am not sure Sorgi will be back in time for the season, he could well start on PUP.

The other thing to remember is we have a lot of guys coming back from injury, so they should improve as they get more work in.
