A June stab at the Atlanta Falcons depth chart

New, comments

Let's take a look at a potential depth chart before minicamp and training camp changes everything.

All the cool kids are delivering their projected depth charts, and I would also like to be cool. Here we are.

I'm not going to list any player  twice on this depth chart, which may make it seem like some positions are unusually loaded and some are unusually thin. You can rest assured, however, that Mike Person or James Stone would step in the game if something happened at right guard, and if the team is keeping Tyson Jackson, he'll be asked to earn his keep by playing both inside and outside.

Here's the depth chart. I welcome your comments, questions and concerns.
