Atlanta Falcons 2014 Roster Locks And Bubble Players

New, comments
Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

With roster cuts and the final game of preseason looming, it's time to take a closer look at the Falcons roster and determine who is a lock for the final roster and who is on the bubble.

By my count, there are 39 locks for this roster, leaving 36 players to duke it out over 14 open slots and 10 practice squad slots, though of course not all those players are eligible for the latter. That gives this last game added weight for those who still have a shot at determining their fate, though I'd guess that the coaches probably already have 15 of the guys they plan to cut written in stone, at minimum. They've had a couple of months to weight the merits of these players carefully, after all.

Please keep in mind that post-cut signings or trades could shake this up, as always. Share your predictions for who gets cut and who makes the final roster in the comments.
