We’re less than two weeks away from real, actual football, but there’s a lot the Falcons have to check off the to-do list between now and then. First and foremost will be whittling the roster down to 53 men.
Some players’ names are written on the depth chart in Sharpie. We all know Matt Ryan, Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, Devonta Freeman, and other star players aren’t going anywhere. But how does the rest of the depth chart shake out?
Below is my best effort to guess the 53-man roster. Make your predictions and talk it out in the comments. Bonus points if you nail your practice squad predictions, too. The person who comes the closest to the actual 53-man roster wins perpetual bragging rights and the satisfaction of a job well done.
Mohamed Sanu, Sr.
Vic Beasley, Jr.
Who knows, because if Giorgio Tavecchio has another bad outing this week, it probably won’t be him.
