ESPN -- Rank: 32
Not many Falcons players or coaches are on the hot seat at this point. But Davidson, the third-year defensive lineman out of Auburn, has struggled to stay healthy throughout his career and missed the preseason opener thanks to injury. While it's unlikely at this point he would be cut, what role he would have for Atlanta now and in the future is very much in question if he can't remain on the field.

The bad news: Bryce Young can't just suit up now. But maybe that's unfair to Desmond Ridder.
Nugget to remember: The Falcons lined up in 11 personnel only 31.3 percent of the time last season, the second-lowest rate in the league, per TruMedia. That tracked with Arthur Smith's identity in Tennessee. With first-round pick Drake London and an array of castoffs at wide receiver, expect more of the same with Pitts still the top option.
