Who's really on the bubble?

It's getting near judgment time. Roster cuts aren't due until next week, but this is the week many decisions will be made.

“If you’re going to make a move it’s going to happen,” said head coach Mike Tomlin. “There are no new surprises, speed of the game, environmental things and so forth. If somebody’s going to make a substantial move it’s going to happen this week.”

Which makes us wonder: Which players are really on the bubble?

The depth chart on Steelers.com may or may not be a semi-accurate indicator.  Is Bryant Browning really the second-team guard behind David DeCastro?

Mike Adams, who is listed as second-team left tackle, is one of the players we're watching closely. Reports on his performance in camp to date have been mixed.  Guy Whimper is listed as second-team right tackle. The options behind Adams and Whimper are rookies: Emmanuel McCray and Wesley Johnson.

If we had to guess, it would be that one of either Adams or Whimper will make it; and one of either McCray or Johnson will make it. One veteran and one rookie; and the ability to play multiple positions may factor into the decision.
