For the third straight year, our Patriots reporters at ESPNBoston.com are offering their projections for the 53-man roster throughout the preseason.

The fourth installment of the dueling 53-man roster projections is now posted on ESPNBoston.com.

Here are some areas where our reporters disagree on their projections:
  • How does the addition of Daniel Fells impact the wide receiver position? Both Rodak and Reiss keep only five wide receivers, leaving off both Jabar Gaffney and Donte' Stallworth.
  • The Patriots released Jonathan Fanene on Wednesday. As a result, Brandon Deaderick returns to Yates' projection. All three reporters keep four defensive tackles, including Deaderick and Ron Brace.
  • Does Dan Koppen make it? Only Reiss includes him on his projection.
  • Does Brandon Bolden make the squad? Rodak leaves him off his projection.
  • Do the Patriots carry any fullbacks on the roster? After none of our reporters included a fullback last week, Spencer Larsen makes both Rodak and Reiss' projections.
  • The great Alfonzo Dennard vs. Marquice Cole debate continues. After returning to practice this week, Dennard makes Reiss' projection over Cole.
