Atlanta Falcons 53 Man Roster Projection, Pre-Titans Edition Edition

An injury shakes up the latest projection from The Falcoholic.

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

It is time for another edition of our 53 man roster projection. After a putrid second preseason game and a major injury along the offensive line, there are a few changes.

So what has changed? I've put the big ones in Italics, as always, but the big one is Jake Matthews to left tackle in the wake of the Sam Baker injury. As of now, I have Gabe Carimi winning the right tackle job, though I expect Lamar Holmes can and will make a major push for it. With Ryan Schraeder sticking on the roster, as well, I have the Falcons carrying Harland Gunn to give them better depth in the middle of the line.

The other big addition is Javier Arenas, giving the Falcons six cornerbacks. I subtracted Tim Dobbins, who I have firmly on the bubble, to make that one work. You'll note that I'm not ready to give the backup quarterback job to Sean Renfree yet, even if I'm kind of hoping he wins it, and I want to see a little more from Kemal Ishmael before I start seriously giving him a chance at the starting job over Dwight Lowery.
