Projecting The 2014 Atlanta Falcons Strong Safety Depth Chart

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Projecting strong safety, as a position, for the 2014 Atlanta Falcons.

We near the end of our depth chart projection series, with special teams to follow tomorrow. It's been quite a ride, he said, misty-eyed.

We come to a position of strength today, a position occupied by one of the better players on the Falcons' roster. While William Moore didn't have his best year in 2013, I think projecting a rebound is more than fair.

An additional note: Mike Nolan loves to mix up his looks across the board, so no, you shouldn't expect Moore to play 100% of his snaps at strong safety. Just expect him to be a beast, either way.

Projected 2014 Atlanta Falcons SS Depth Chart

William Moore: 100 tackles, 2 sacks, 5 interceptions, 6 pass deflections, 2 forced fumbles
Kemal Ishmael: 10 tackles, 1 interception, 1 pass deflection

With some pressure taken off of him thanks to an improved front seven, I fully anticipate William Moore having a career year. The ability's not in question, and so a line like this would not surprise me in the slightest. It might be enough to get him into the Pro Bowl.

Ishmael, whenever active, should only get a handful of snaps outside of special teams. I don't have a good feeling about Zeke Motta's health, so Ishmael should get the spot.

Project away, y'all.
