Atlanta Falcons 53 man roster projection, post-2017 draft edition

New, comments

We’ve got our guess at how the roster will shake out.

NFL: San Diego Chargers at Atlanta Falcons Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

It wouldn’t be a proper post-draft celebration if we didn’t start guessing at a 53 man roster way earlier than is reasonable or proper, so that’s precisely what we’ll do today.

In building this roster, I’m acknowledging that there’s likely going to be at least one undrafted free agent who comes out of nowhere and steals a job, but I think it may just be one this season. The Falcons’ roster is loaded, they have a promising draft class coming in, and much of the roster is already set.

Here’s my 53 man prediction. I’d love to hear yours.
