Predicting stats for all the new Falcons free agency additions

Richard Dole-USA TODAY Sports

Free agency probably isn't over, but the first wave appears to have come to an end. It's projection time!

Basically, I'm going to take the familiar counting stats that we all know and love and guess where each player signed is going to land. Obviously this is an inexact science at best and I'm making some real assumptions, and you're probably going to laugh at Antone Smith's puny numbers, but I find you guys always seem to enjoy doing your own projections after you finish ridiculing mine.

Keep in mind that I am assuming these guys will be healthy for a full season, which is far from a guaranteed outcome. Onward.

RB Antone Smith: 80 carries, 400 yards, 2 touchdowns, 45 receptions, 450 yards, 3 touchdowns
WR Leonard Hankerson: 35 catches, 450 yards, 4 touchdowns
DE Adrian Clayborn: 30 tackles, 6 sacks, 2 pass deflections, 2 forced fumbles
DE/LB O'Brien Schofield: 35 tackles, 3.5 sacks, 1 pass deflection
LB Brooks Reed: 65 tackles, 3.5 sacks, 1 interception, 1 forced fumble, 4 pass deflections
LB Justin Durant: 85 tackles, .5 sacks, 8 pass deflections 
CB Phillip Adams: 15 tackles, 1 interception, 3 pass deflections
G Mike Person: 4 games
