Falcons' 53-man roster projection includes plenty of WR depth behind Julio Jones

The Atlanta Falcons open training camp on July 28 at their training facility in Flowery Branch, Georgia, in what could be a make-or-break season for coach Dan Quinn. The Falcons are coming off back-to-back 7-9 seasons, and owner Arthur Blank has said that making the playoffs is his expectation. But the Falcons finished strong last season -- going 6-2 over the final eight games after starting the year with a 1-7 record, which likely saved Quinn's job. Here is a 53-man roster projection.

QUARTERBACK (2): Matt Ryan, Matt Schaub

Ryan being outspoken on racial injustice this offseason could really help build more chemistry in the locker room as teammates look to him as a leader. Schaub's 460-yard performance in place of an injured Ryan last season proved he's still a serviceable backup even at age 39. Don't count out 24-year-old Kurt Benkert making a run at the backup role coming off a Grade 3 turf toe tear.
