Summer is here, and the Atlanta Falcons are wrapping up their first week of organized team activities as they embark on a 2013 campaign that they hope will end with a trip to MetLife Stadium to play in the Super Bowl.
A couple of weeks ago I gave you my early projection of what the Falcons' final 53-man roster may look like after training camp.
As the Falcons coaches continue their own evaluations, join me as I take an updated glance at the top 53 players currently on Atlanta's roster and rank them based on their overall talent, their projected role on the 2013 squad and their prior NFL production (I based rookie rankings on a combination of how I view their potential and their projected roles with the team).
I placed players that I ranked outside of the top 20 into three groups based on the roles that I expect them to play for the Falcons next season: special teamers/backup quarterbacks, utility reserves/spot starters and fringe starters, subpackage players and kickers.
For any of my Madden gamers, you can consider this article to be my best guess as to how the "OVR" ratings would stack up for the players on the Falcons roster as we head into June.
Let's break it all down.
