The final 53-man roster (for now)

The Giants' 53-man roster, as of Saturday at 6 p.m.

QB (2) -- Eli Manning, David Carr. Comment: Sage Rosenfels to IR was very surprising. Giants need to find a No. 3 QB.

RB (4) -- Ahmad Bradshaw, Brandon Jacobs, D.J. Ware, Da'Rel Scott. Comment: Scott, team's seventh-round draft pick, showed too much pure speed in preseason to let him go.

FB (2) -- Bear Pascoe, Henry Hynoski. Comment: Pascoe could also see time at tight end.

WR (6) -- Hakeem Nicks, Mario Manningham, Domenik Hixon, Devin Thomas, Victor Cruz, Jerrel Jernigan. Comment: We'll see who the Giants use in the slot to start the season, Hixon or Cruz.

TE (2) -- Travis Beckum, Jake Ballard. Comment: Giants should definitely be watching the waiver wire for help at this position.

OL (9) -- David Diehl, Chris Snee, Kareem McKenzie, Will Beatty, David Baas, Stacy Andrews, Mitch Petrus, James Brewer, Kevin Boothe. Comment: Development of chemistry on this revamped line will be critical to team's success this season.

DL (8) -- Justin Tuck, Osi Umenyiora, Chris Canty, Linval Joseph, Jason Pierre-Paul, Rocky Bernard, Dave Tollefson, Jimmy Kennedy. Comment: Strongest unit on the squad.

LB (7) -- Mathias Kiwanuka, Jonathan Goff, Michael Boley, Jacquian Williams, Mark Herzlich, Greg Jones, Spencer Paysinger. Comment: Will be very interesting to see how the four rookies perform, if/when given the opportunity.

CB (5) -- Corey Webster, Aaron Ross, Michael Coe, Brian Williams, Prince Amukamara. Comment: Pressure's on Ross, with Terrell Thomas out for the season.

S (5) -- Antrel Rolle, Deon Grant, Kenny Phillips, Tyler Sash, Derrick Martin. Comment: How much will we see of the three-safety look this year? Might be a lot.

SP (3) -- Lawrence Tynes, Steve Weatherford, Zak DeOssie. Comment: Will Giants fans miss Matt Dodge? Not likely.
