The 2015 NFL season is approaching fast which means that teams will have to trim their rosters down to the top 53 men before week one. The Atlanta Falcons have had a lot of success out of the first-team offense and defense, but have struggled once the reserves have come into the game.

There are several players who are on the bubble and will need to have a good showing in the last two preseason games in order to secure their roster spot. The third preseason game will pose a great opportunity for the backup offensive lineman as well as the running backs who will be going up against one of the top defensive lines in all of football.

On the defensive side of the ball, the reserves will get to match up with tall, physical wide receivers and a slew of good running backs. Lets take a look at five players who are on the bubble midway through the preseason.
