You’ll discover just a few adjustments between this up-to-date depth chart and the one launched previous to the Eagles sport final week. Essentially the most notable being that the crew apparently views Drew Dalman as a versatile inside participant, as he’s now listed because the backup at left guard, proper guard and heart. Whether or not that results in any alternatives on this line—and whether or not it actually locations him forward of Colby Gossett at left guard going ahead—stays to be seen.
Josh Rosen, who got here into Sunday’s sport late when the crew formally threw within the towel, is now listed as the only real backup quarterback behind Matt Ryan. If that continues, the Falcons might not preserve three quarterbacks round for much longer.
Additionally, tight finish Parker Hesse has returned from the crew’s reserve/COVID-19 checklist and seems on the depth chart. Outdoors of these adjustments, there’s not an entire lot to see, and Jalen Mayfield stays the starter at left guard following a literal “baptism by hearth” this earlier weekend.
We’ll see if these minimal adjustments make an influence because the Falcons fly south for a troublesome divisional matchup with the Buccaneers.
