Falcons 53 man roster projection: Post cutdown edition

With 22 cuts to go and a practice squad to fill, here’s our latest 53 man roster projection.

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

There have been enough changes in the last few days, what with all the roster cuts, that I think it’s time for an updated 53 man roster projection. You’ll notice that the biggest changes are happening at wide receiver, where the Falcons just lost Devin Fuller for the year, and on the practice squad, where some of my picks for the squad were released by the Falcons in the first round of cuts. C’est la vie.

You’ll note there are more than 53 names on this roster. This time around, I’ve adjusted for the reality that Keanu Neal will be hurt but still on the roster, unless his timetable lengthens to the point where the Falcons need to place him on PUP.
