Falcons preseason talk: Who improved their chances of making the team?

Tonight’s discussion question revolves around a big hypothetical.

NFL: Atlanta Falcons at Miami Dolphins Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

Despite the fact that no one made the team or lost a roster spot because of their performance Thursday night, the game was still important. For some players, it was also instrumental to getting a longer look.

So that’s our question for this Saturday night: Who improved their chances of hanging on to a roster spot, based solely on what they did Thursday?

My pick for that honor would be DJ Tialavea, who despite his genuinely low odds of making the team had to turn a few heads in the film room based on Thursday’s performance. He looked like he might actually develop into a competent tackle down the line, and given the team’s dearth of those at the moment, he might just stun us all and make it.

Give us your selection, and then use this as your open thread for the evening, as one does.
