A Big Year For Micanor Regis, Travian Robertson And Adam Replogle

Daniel Shirey

The two young defensive tackles have a real shot at making the final roster and earning a spot for 2014.

If there's one position on the roster where young players desperately need to step up, it would be defensive tackle.

You could make a solid case for a half a dozen others, of course. The Falcons could use youth at defensive end, cornerback and along the offensive line. As I noted yesterday, Jonathan Babineaux, Corey Peters and Peria Jerry are all free agents a year from now. Getting young, cheap players to at least provide depth is critically important.

That's why this could be a big season for Micanor Regis, Travian Robertson and Adam Replogle. The three young defensive tackles come into the 2013 season with a real opportunity to carve our major roles this year and in 2014. Robertson in particular can actually push to start next year, given the free agency situation and his intriguing upside.

You'll want to watch all three players closely to see what becomes of them. Regis and Replogle will have to push hard to make the roster, or in Replogle's case, the practice squad. If they can prove themselves, the Falcons won't be feeling such a pinch at the position this time next year.

Your thoughts on the three young DTs?
