Absurdly early 53 man roster prediction before training camp

I’m going to take an early stab at the 53 man roster now that OTAs are done and the roster feels pretty set. I’m sure there will be minor tweaks to the roster over the coming month  but not much of that will change who makes the team. Of course this doesn’t predict the waiver pick ups or trades the Saints could make. It is entirely too early to think about this but it’s still a fun exercise to wonder who has the best shot of making the team with the roster in it’s current form.
