Like most NFL teams in late August, the 2013 Atlanta Falcons are saying and doing everything to suggest that they are focused on team goals such as winning the NFC South and eventually winning the Super Bowl.
However, as we continue our preseason Falcons coverage, we'll shift our focus away from the team and towards the individual.
This year's Falcons squad certainly isn't lacking for star power given the presence of names like Matt Ryan, Tony Gonzalez, Steven Jackson, Roddy White, Julio Jones, Jonathan Babineaux and Osi Umenyiora. In addition, Atlanta has a formidable supporting cast of players on the cusp of stardom, including Sean Weatherspoon, William Moore and Thomas DeCoud.
With such a talent-laden roster, competition for individual recognition from this group won't come easy.
Nevertheless, here's our best projection of which Falcons players will be in line for individual awards from the team when the 2013 campaign is all said and done based on what we've seen and heard from Flowery Branch during training camp to this point.
