Three depth chart changes the Falcons should make following QB switch

We finally got the switch that we all wanted on the depth chart more than anything, the Atlanta Falcons flipping the roles of Desmond Ridder and Marcus Mariota.

However, as we previously mentioned, there is still a ways to go before this team becomes a legit playoff contender, but making that switch at the most important position was a great start. Most changes will come in the offseason but we will look at more immediate things that the team should make.

There are numerous positions that are lacking and don’t have any depth behind them to make any changes.
