Pre-Draft Projected Atlanta Falcons Depth Chart

On the cusp of the NFL draft the Atlanta Falcons have a lot of decisions to make. The 2014 season showcased many of the Falcons flaws as a whole starting with the former Head Coach. A semi overhaul resulted because of that failed season. The Atlanta Falcons signed many mid-level talent players to significant deals during the offseason. Head Coach Dan Quinn is quoted in saying that he believes the falcons "nailed it" in free agency. People seem to overlook that the Atlanta Falcons already have some pretty talented players on their roster. Some players were just simply put in positions where they couldn't win. Here are this writer's projections of who should start and where everyone should be placed on the depth chart.
