No huge surprises. Two biggest things I see are that BJS is BTL at RB (not surprised) and Jerry Howard is ATL at LB. Also not surprising, but it is certainly a strange flip there.

edit... agree with Gogatech, though. I thought Martin and Boyd, especially would be ATL.

You think Martin and Owens are BTL or banged up/possibly covid related exclusions?

Gibbs has the best number on the team. If I ever got #21 as a GT player, I wouldn't want a single digit jersey. Calvin Johnson and Jonathan Dwyer were 21

Do we know anything about the kickers?

Two of them are number 48, that should be interesting.

No defensive players from the 2020 class are ATL for the opener. That’s interesting given how highly regarded the class was. And looks like Lockhart is the only defensive player from the 2019 class currently ATL.

Jerry Howard gonna start at one of the linebacker positions?
They are listed in jersey number order. So maybe, but him being listed first doesn’t indicate that he will start.

I really wish Geoff would just issue a damn depth chart. These cute little “effort based” games he plays are dumb.
Yep. Kind of dumb. I assume anyway that anyone in the top 3 of a depth chart has an opportunity to play.

Why? Does it matter if fans like it or not? Apparently the players really dig the ATL thing and opponents hate it. That's good enough reason for me right there regardless of whether or not you or I like it.
Opponents don’t care dude. Jesus. There’s no competitive advantage to it or everyone would do it.

I don't think its cute or dumb. I think its pretty smart. Its longer than a depth chart so more players get excited about seeing some playing time and its a little bit more information to clog the scouting reports by the other team. There's no harm in it so not sure why you are so opposed to it.
