Projecting The Final Falcons Roster: Defensive End

The series moves on to the defense.

Todd Kirkland

We've wrapped up the offense, so we're on to the defense.

Defensive end is one of the positions on this roster that could be safely considered in flux. Osi Umenyiora will lock down one side of the line, but Kroy Biermann isn't necessarily going to be a full-time starter on the other side. The Falcons have a lot of youth here, and not all of these players will stick.

Let's explore the position as currently constructed.

On The Roster

Osi Umenyiora, Starter
Kroy Biermann, Starter
Malliciah Goodman (R)
Stansly Maponga (R)
Jonathan Massaquoi
Cliff Matthews
Cam Henderson (R)
Brandon Thurmon (R)

There's a lot of talent here, and they're fighting for what's likely to be five spots on the final roster. You have to believe that Goodman and Maponga will stick, being recent draft picks, but you never know. It's open after Duff Man and Osi.

I'll turn it over to you guys. Who makes the final roster at DE?
