The final vote of our series—except for one big, overall vote on the best Falcons at every single position, ever—comes down to the original group of defenders and special teamers for this franchise. They’re a better bunch than the offense, but not by a lot. Let us vote.

There’s only vote this time, and it involves the cornerback position. And yes, you’re correct, Billy Lothridge is listed as both the best safety and best punter, because he did play both positions for the Falcons. They don’t make them like that any longer, though I’m sure Matt Bosher would like the chance.

Defensive Ends: Claude Humphrey & John Zook

Defensive Tackles: Glen Condren & John Small

Linebackers: Tommy Nobis, Don Hansen & Greg Brezina

Cornerbacks: Ken Reaves & ....
