ROSTER UPDATE: Nos. 40-49

Trying to find a highlight player in the 40s is darn near impossible because almost none of them, save Ryan Mueller, have played. - USA TODAY Sports

BracketCat breaks down K-State's updated 2013 roster, 10 players at a time. Today's entry looks at the defensive back, defensive linemen, fullback, kicker, linebackers, long snappers, punter and tight end in the 40s.

K-State's online roster was updated with fall additions last month, which means it's time to review all my mistakes and poor predictions from prior DAYS TO KICKOFF countdown posts.

There are several changes here from the entries I posted a few months ago. Tight end William Green (No. 47), defensive ends Logan Haug (No. 41) and Devon Nash (No. 42), and linebacker Tyrone Ward have quit the team.

Non-graduate departures from the roster at this time last year in the 40s include Hunter Davis (who didn't actually make it to 2012's team). The only graduates was Meshak Williams.

Slightly less minor discrepancies are noted below.
