Looking ahead to the Atlanta Falcons 2023 season everything appears to be ahead of the team with an easy schedule and what should be a blockbuster off-season. The NFC South appears to be the weakest division in the league and barring drastic changes is very winnable for any of the four teams next season.
The problem for the Saints and Bucs will be a lack of cap space to make needed improvements. This leaves the Panthers and Falcons as the clear favorites heading into the 2023 off-season. Atlanta can open up well over $80 million in cap space and will have nine draft picks including the 8th overall pick and a chance to add a high-impact player for the third straight season.
With all of this in mind, ranking the NFC South is obvious if we are looking at the rosters as currently constructed and projecting cap space and off-season moves for each team the rankings become clear for a division that should yet again be very winnable in the 2023 season.
