I was approached by a colleague about who I would choose to build a franchise around that plays on the Atlanta Falcons. But, cannot be just any five players.

Here are the rules:

Two offensive players

Two defensive players

one rookie

Age doesn’t matter for this, however, I will take into account age. You wouldn’t want a player who is not in his prime anymore becoming one of your five franchise players! If you disagree with our list, comment who you would choose!
