FCS quarterback Carson Wentz made the initial 53 man roster for the Commanders
Can FCS legend Carson Wentz lead the Commanders to the playoffs? We break down all the FCS players on every roster.

Big ups to NCAA.com for breaking down the FCS players on the initial 53-man rosters in the NFL to start the 2022 season. I thought this was a great guide and wanted to share it since it shows all the players on every roster to start the season. Many believe you cannot make it from the FCS, but that is not the case.

This year 123 players from the FCS made an initial roster. That is pretty amazing. Add in the fact that 21 players were drafted and only 2 did not make the fifty three is impressive. Let’s take a look at Stan Becton’s breakdown from NCAA.com!
