Atlanta Falcons positions from youngest to oldest
As previously mentioned (and linked), we have already reviewed the age of each position for the Atlanta Falcons' current 90-man roster. Their defense is a little bit older than their offense but, surprisingly, their youngest position is on the defense.
Special teams, once again, will not be included because two of the positions have only one player and the other has two. Here is the age of each position from youngest to oldest.

I think it is safe to say that most Falcons fans would not guess that cornerback is the team's youngest position. Personally, my guess would have been running back, so I would have been wrong by .01.
Look at the bottom six positions, those are positions where having veterans is so important. But on the flip side, youth is usually associated with speed, and having speed at cornerback, running back, wide receiver, tight end, linebacker, and safety never hurts. Obviously, just because you are young, doesn't mean you are fast but it is a general principle.
Anyways, Terry Fontenot knows what he is doing and it looks like he knows about all of these analytics because it is perfectly set up, at least in my opinion.
