Projecting The Final Falcon Roster: Guard

The Falcons look inward on the offensive line, as do we all.


Today, we come to one of the most loaded positions on the roster, both in terms of potential depth and sheer weight.

The Falcons will bring a lot of players to camp who are either listed as guards or capable of playing there. Some are veterans who have earned their spots already, more or less, while others are vying for their first NFL job. There should be plenty of healthy competition here.

That muddles things a bit for the purposes of prognostication, but we'll soldier on. It's time to take a look at who's on the roster and project who you think will stick:

On The Roster

Justin Blalock, Starter
Garrett Reynolds, Starter
Joe Hawley
Philipkeith Manley
Harland Gunn
Jacques McClendon
Theo Goins (R)
Matt Smith (R)
Peter Konz (I guess)

As you can see, there's a lot of candidates for four or five spots here, if the Falcons even carry that many. I'd have to think the guys who have been on the roster will have the advantage, but don't sleep on Goins.

Your picks?
