One of the top questions this offseason was definitely who was going to replace retired Chris Chester. The Atlanta Falcons took Sean Harlow in the fourth round of the draft, but he never provided much competition to Wes Schweitzer and Ben Garland.
Schweitzer was our favorite for the spot, as his training camp battle last season with Chester got very close. Now he beat out Garland for the starting spot.

Schweitzer looked pretty good during preseason, and may soon end up an improvement over Chester. He’s still on the raw side, but has the physical tools to play well between Pro Bowlers Alex Mack and Ryan Schraeder.
