Falcons Training Camp: Competition Continues At Offensive Line

Mike Smith recently talked about the offensive line competition that is ongoing at Falcons' training camp and indicated that he and the rest of the coaching staff are looking for seven players as the quantity of players that he is looking for on the line. Smith is likely talking about having seven offensive lineman active on game day as the team opened last season with nine lineman on the roster.

Smith indicated that they are rolling the offensive line through multiple positions in an effort to get a look at different combinations. The two biggest competitions are centered at right guard and left tackle.

Garrett Reynolds was recently listed as the No. 1 at right guard but expects to receive a push from rookie Peter Konz. Sam Baker is working as the No. 1 at left tackle but could get a push from William Svitek and eventually rookie Lamar Holmes. Justin Blalock, Tyson Clabo and Todd McClure figure to be entrenched at their positions with Joe Hawley and Mike Johnson also in the mix.
