Projecting The Final Falcons Roster: Wide Receiver

Breaking down one of the most top-heavy positions on the Atlanta Falcons roster.

Kevin C. Cox

The Falcons go into this season with perhaps the best starting wide receiver tandem in the NFL. Beyond that, it's a little murky.

This season, the team is likely to turn the reins at fourth and fifth receiver over to unproven players. They're likely to roll with the solid if unspectacular Harry Douglas in the slot once more. Once you get past Julio Jones and Roddy White, in other words, we're not looking at one of the team's strengths. Fortunately, White and Jones are insanely good.

Here's a look at who is on the roster at the moment. Based on this, project what who will break camp with the team.

On The Roster

Roddy White, Starter
Julio Jones, Starter
Harry Douglas
Drew Davis
Kevin Cone
Rashad Evans (R)
Marcus Jackson
Darius Johnson (R)
Martel Moore (R)
Tim Toone
James Rodgers

That's quite a list to choose from, and you're going to want to factor special teams value in here to some degree. That said, go to it!
