The Falcoholic's Absurdly Early Guess At The Falcons Roster

Some would say it's way too early to try to guess the final roster. I wouldn't quibble with that, but I'm doing it anyways.

Part of the reason that I do this so very early is to see just how wrong I am down the line. It also gives all of you an opportunity to be as horribly wrong as I am, or to hit upon a long shot the rest of us are simply stunned by.

In making this list, you'll note that I assumed the Falcons won't re-sign Jason Snelling, and that they will release Chauncey Davis before the start of the season. Trey Lewis is also gone, while two undrafted free agents manage to sneak onto the squad. Given the team's growing defensive depth and my own whimsy, most of the practice squad is populated with promising offensive players.

Check out my list after the jump, and feel free to share yours. If I've miscounted again, be sure to let me know.
