Falcons 53 man roster projection, post-2015 Draft edition

Our latest crack at how the roster will shape up heading into 2015.

With the draft over, I figured it was time to take another crack at the Falcons' 53 man roster.

You'll likely have a few questions here that I'll attempt to answer up front. Yes, the team is trying out Tyson Jackson at defensive end. Yes, with the drafting of Jalen Collins, I've switched Dezmen Southward back to safety. Yes, I think the Falcons are going to make up for some weaknesses in their linebacking corps by having six guys on the roster. No, I don't think Tyler Starr makes the final roster, and no, I will not be answering questions about whether or not he's active.

If you're interested in seeing another take on the 53 man roster that is just slightly less correct than mine, check out this one:
