Training camp tends to swiftly make fools of all of us when it comes to roster predictions, but that will never stop us. To predict is to be human, and I’m feeling particularly human today.

Here’s my best crack at a 53 man roster at the moment, one that does it best to take advantage of the team’s depth at certain positions by keeping a lot of guys around. That includes wide receiver, where the Falcons get to hold on to three talented young options, and guard, where the Falcons can let 2017 fourth round guard Sean Harlow marinate one more year in the hopes that he’s able to step into a larger role in 2019, when Andy Levitre’s contract is up.

Review mine, sound off, and share yours!
