Atlanta Falcons News: Falcons Release First Depth Chart

Atlanta Falcons fans have another reason to be excited. With the Falcons set to open up preseason play on Thursday against the Baltimore Ravens, the club has released the first depth chart for 2012.

On offense, the usual suspects are at the top. Matt Ryan, Julio Jones, Roddy White, Tony Gonzalez and Michael Turner are all, not surprisingly, atop the depth chart at their respective positions.

All of Atlanta's draft selections from their 2012 draft class are listed as third string players. Peter Konz is listed at third string at center along with Bryce Harris, behind Todd McClure and Joe Hawley. Konz, however, is listed as the second string player at right guard, behind Garrett Reynolds.

The draftees will undoubtedly be given a long look in preseason play this week, as the coaching staff isn't likely to keep the first team players on the field for much of the first preseason game.
