Atlanta Falcons final roster prediction: Cornerbacks (6)

  • A.J. Terrell
  • Jeff Okudah
  • Tre Flowers
  • Mike Hughes
  • Dee Alford
  • Clark Phillips III

Notable cuts: Darren Hall, Cornell Armstrong, Natrone Brooks

The injury to Jeff Okudah seriously complicates the cornerback position for the Falcons. If he is going to be healthy by week one or even week two then there shouldn't be a huge problem, but anything past that will make things interesting.

Tre Flowers will take over in his absence and then Clark Phillips could play outside in a pinch—it is just not ideal to rely on them for too long.

Mike Hughes and Dee Alford will make their money in the slot. The question is if the Falcons will hold onto a player like Cornell Armstrong or Natrone Brooks just in case one of the boundary corners goes down with an injury.
