6 RB is a mistake, otherwise looks good.

Get rid of the FB and the special teamer and use two players w upside.

Not really given Free injury history and it’s really 5 RBs and a FB.

We could’ve gone 10 DL, 7 WR, or 6 LB instead but that’s about it.

I'm not sure where people think we don't have extra Edge rushers  bc before coming to the Falcons both Jack Crawford and Adrian Clayborn were pure Edge rushers for their respective teams they only moved to the inside when they came to the Falcons

So I wonder what we do with Hageman and Bennett when their time to be added to the roster comes around.

Was Hageman not cut?

If they plan to bring back Hage, they may cut Ortiz. Give some reps to Stocker at FB and decide to cut or keep Ortiz.

Crawford is a inside rusher... he can play on the edge (u would like on mainly run downs) but he had his career year because of the way we played him inside

They have two weeks to decide. He is suspended so won’t count on 53. Probably Ortiz can be cut if Hage is on the roster.

The only head scratcher to me is keeping Schaub and risking losing two young QBs that show a little promise.  We all know if Ryan goes down then we are screwed, so I really don't see the value in keeping Schaub.  He's experienced and may be helpful in the film room but on the field I don't see the young guys playing any worse.. honestly I think they'd play better.

I dont agree with only having 3 true edge rushers on the roster. Seems like they really are hoping their are no injuries but only having Beasley Takk and Clay who can play thos edge position we having going with the 3-4 5-2 hybrid we have going on here. Losing 1 player can be extremely thin

I think they may have Cominsky,Crawford & Bailey in mind in a pinch can come in and do a job.

I think that’s the big part of who does what is the versatility all over the roster.

Theyll have a dedicated starting group this allows the tweeners to be able to cover certain spots in a pinch.

We are only at risk of losing Etling. benkert is on IR.

With the exception of CB, this is the deepest, most talented roster I can recall going into a season. 

Both offensive and defensive lines are stacked with backups that can play at a higher level than what we’ve had in previous years should we lose a starter at some point.

i thought S Cooper was looking good but he may have lost out in a numbers game.

Looks good except I didn’t expect Ortiz to make the cut.

I’m really hoping that Larkin and TBJ clear waivers and make it to our PS. I would have been ok with releasing Ortiz and Hill and keeping these two instead.

I still hope we aren’t done and we claim another pass rushing DE and/or SS off waivers.

He struggled on punts. Kick returns he never really got that many returnables kicks. 

True. He struggled in general....

I think people are sleeping on Miller. Wren Wilson has been around to step in and contribute. If Oliver can do better than what Alford did last year, it may not be an issue.

There is literally nobody on here who has banged the table harder for the Falcons to find Schaub's replacement than I have.

That said... Schaub is our best option of the guys we have had on the roster this offseason. Benkert looked like he was ready to give him a run for his money, but got hurt. He's already been placed on IR so we don't risk losing him at all.

As for Etling, he's not that good.

Look, I get that he did a serviceable (but far from stellar) job against some bottom of the barrel guys on the Jags. But people are placing waaaaaaay too much on that one performance when the reality is that it's just not enough. He was bad against the Skins & there's a reason the Pats tried to convert him to WR and then they cut ties all together.

Yeah, I wouldn't have carried the FB and wouldn't have carried a specialist when we don't really get yardage out of punt returns anyway.  Especially since we kept Hardy...he can at least sure handedly catch it.

Would have kept Hardy and let him handle punts until Oz or Blake (or someone) had gotten more used to returns.

That would have enabled an extra DL, and WR or LB as you say.

Zaccheaus over Blake...I can take that

Ortiz even on the roster is dumb

No love for Tony Brooks-James...he’s the type of player you have to find a way to give a chance.  Hopefully we can get him on the PS.

No Larkin is disappointing as well.

I disagree there if you're the fith or 6th on a depth chart you better be able to play special teams which is the one group I'm still worried about even after signing Bryant that's the one area where we haven't looked good in years

Yeah.  I just don't like having people late on the depth chart who are only going to play special teams.

That's the place for young developing players who can play special teams in the meantime.

I know Oz and Marcus didn't make it easy by flubbing everything.

Technically it's only 4RBs.  Barner should be lumped in with Bryant, Bosher and Harris as a dedicated ST.   One of the 4 backs will almost certainly be inactive on gameday so that will be interesting to watch.
