ESPNBoston.com's third roster projection is now posted on the site, and the toughest position to analyze is receiver. We both have the Patriots keeping six pure receivers, with a seventh in the form of special teamer Matthew Slater.
When considering that tight end Aaron Hernandez is receiver-like in many ways, is that a luxury the Patriots can afford?
I've been going back and forth on that.
Here are the players that showed up on just one of the two projections, meaning there was a difference in opinion:
DE Mark Anderson
CB Darius Butler
LB Tracy White
DT Mike Wright
The biggest move was made by rookie free agent tight end Will Yeatman, who leapfrogs fifth-round pick Lee Smith for a roster spot in both projections.
