Prediction for the 53 man roster

The biggest part about this roster comes down to what we value more. If there is one thing that does concern me about our squad, is that we do not have a pure pass rusher. We'll be stout on run D no doubt but, I still feel like we don't have that featured guy yet. I do have faith that we will get creative in doing so. The hardest part may be trying to place all the linebackers and seeing who fits where best. Whose ever name I put first and second will be the starter and immediate backup

QB: Matt Ryan, Sean Renfree

RB: Steven Jackson, Devonte Freeman, Jacquizz Rodgers, Antone Smith

FB: Roosevelt Nix

WR1: Julio Jones, Darius Johnson, Drew Davis

WR2: Roddy White, Harry Douglas, Devin Hester

TE: Levine Toilolo, Bear Pascoe, Jacob Pedersen

LT: Sam Baker, Mike Johnson

LG: Justin Blalock, Peter Konz

C: Joe Hawley, Peter Konz

RG: Jon Asamoah, Gabe Carimi

RT: Jake Matthews, Lamar Holmes

LE: Tyson Jackson, Jonathan Babineaux, Malliciah Goodman

DT: Paul Soliai, Rashede Hageman, Corey Peters, Travian Robertson

RE: Jonathan Massaquoi, Kroy Biermann

LOLB: Joplo Bartu, Osi Umenyoira

LILB: Prince Shembo, Marquiss Spruill

RILB: Sean Weatherspoon, Paul Worrilow

ROLB: Kroy Biermann, Tyler Starr

CB1: Desmond Trufant, Robert McClain,

CB 2: Robert Alford, Josh Wilson, Ricardo Allen

FS: Dwight Lowery, Dezmen Southward

SS: William Moore, Zeke Motta

LS: Josh Harris

K: Matt Bryant

P: Matt Bosher

My Thinking: Smallwood is cut but placed on the PS, Jerry is cut, DiMarco is cut for Nix a bowling ball type runner, Motta is only there if he's healthy otherwise it is Ishmael at SS which I'm not thrilled with or maybe there's a switch for Southward backing up WilllyMo and Ishmael backing up Lowery

McClain and Allen fight for the Nickel spot. Harris proves invaluable. When I first made this I thought for sure Antone Smith was cut but, with Snelling gone he sticks around. Arenas just can't provide enough in coverage. I can't really say about the end product for WR though. I think we may go searching for another option to fight for that third spot with Douglas if someone is there. If that's the case Davis is gone. Pedersen somehow sticks. I'm only putting in Babs as a backup mainly cause you don't sign someone to a major contract and put him as backup. Also I really think Massaquoi needs the reps. Worrilow sticks somehow. I mean that with a great sense of relief but, I don't think he's part of the Falcons long term plan
