14 of 16

The 2015 Atlanta Falcons cornerbacks should be a solid group in 2015, but will have a much different look than in 2015. Desmond Trufant and Robert Alford will start the year as the top two corners with rookie Jalen Collins and Veteran Phillip Adams backing them up. I also expect rookie Kevin White to outplay the rest for the final cornerback spot on the roster.

Jalen Collins hasn’t looked great thus far, but will have a roster spot regardless. Dezmen Southward is also battling for a roster spot, but should wind up cut by the end of the preseason. Southward hasn’t played good at all and is on very thin ice heading into the first preseason game.
