Perhaps the most interesting aspect of the offensive depth chart is the situation at backup wide receiver. With Harry Douglas lost for the season, the Falcons have Marty Booker and Brian Finneran listed as the top two backups. But Robert Ferguson, Chandler Williams, Eric Weems, Troy Bergeron and Aaron Kelly also are in the mix. Also, Chris Redman is listed as the No. 2 quarterback and D.J. Shockley is third.
On the defensive side, the Falcons have rookie Peria Jerry as the first-team nose tackle. The first-teamers in other positions of interest are Stephen Nicholas at strongside linebacker, Brent Grimes at cornerback and Thomas DeCoud at safety.
It will be a surprise if DE Jamaal Anderson actually is a certified number one; can he actually progress enough to not call him a bust? On the WR front it would be nice to see Bergeron [we attended the same high school] move up the charts, but he is listed as fifth string, so he will only make it on low salary, more injuries, and great special teams play.
