Predicting the Falcons 53-man roster before the final preseason game

Predicting a 53-man roster is no easy task, but from what we’ve seen so far from guys on the roster bubble, I think Falcons fans should have a pretty good idea of what to expect when the final cuts are made.

Locks. These guys are either entrenched in their spots due to injuries, draft picks, play a position of need; or they are members of our core group of starters:

 

QB: Matt Ryan, Matt Schaub

HB: Devonta Freeman, Ito Smith

WR: Julio Jones, Mo Sanu, Calvin Ridley

TE: Austin Hooper, Luke Stocker

LT: Jake Matthews

LG: James Carpenter, Jamon Brown

C: Alex Mack

RG: Chris Lindstrom, Wes Schweitzer

RT: Kaleb McGary, Matt Gono, Ty Sambrailo

 

DE: Vic Beasley, Takk McKinley, Allen Bailey, Adrian Clayborn

DT: Grady Jarrett, Deadrin Senat, Jack Crawford, Tyeler Davison

OLB: De’Vondre Campbell, Foye Oluokun

MLB: Deion Jones

DB: Desmond Trufant, Keanu Neal, Ricardo Allen, Isaiah Oliver, Damontae Kazee, Jordan Miller, Kendall Sheffield

 

P: Matt Bosher

LS: Josh Harris

 

Total: 38

 

On the bubble, but I like their chances. These guys are a mix of showing up and earning their spot, and a couple of guys on their last chances. Ollison, Grace, and Cominsky have impressed, Riley and Hardy might be gone after this season.

 

RB: Qadree Ollison, Kenjon Barner

WR: Justin Hardy, Olamide Zaccheaus, Russell Gage

TE: Jaeden Graham

DE: John Cominsky

DT: Ra’Shede Hageman

OLB: Duke Riley, Bruce Carter

MLB: Jermaine Grace

DB: Blidi Wreh-Wilson, Sharrod Neasman, Kemal Ishmael

K: Blair Walsh or Giorgio Tavvechio (whoever wins the battle)

 

Total: 15

 

Just missed the cut:

RB Brian Hill

DE Durrant Miles

DE Austin Larkin

TE Logan Paulsen

CB Jayson Stanley

DB Jaylen Myrick

FB Ricky Ortiz

CB Taveze Calhoun

DT Stefan Charles
