How will the Falcons offensive line shake out in 2016?

Taking a guess at the final configuration of the 2016 Falcons offensive line.

NFL: Atlanta Falcons-Minicamp Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

We’re going to be debating the winners of the left and right guard battles, so we’re not going to obsess about those here. Instead, we’re simply going to ask who will make the roster along the Falcons’ offensive line, where there are three excellent starters and a healthy number of question marks.

Here’s my best guess at your final offensive linemen collection.

LT Jake Matthews
LG Andy Levitre
C Alex Mack
RG Chris Chester
RT Ryan Schraeder
T Bryce Harris
G Wes Schweitzer
C/G Mike Person
G/T Tom Compton

In all, this is nine guys, and I fully expect two of Laurence Gibson, Shahbaz Ahmad, Jake Reed, and Ben Garland to make the practice squad so the Falcons have contingencies in place for injury. You’ll note that I leaned heavily toward veterans making the final roster, with the exception of intriguing rookie Schweitzer, which I think is a fair guess.

Give us your final group of linemen, por favor.
