While 28-3 may haunt this franchise for eternity, they still have a talented roster and high hopes for 2018. But who among their roster is the best? We’re looking at the top ten best Atlanta Falcons players going into the 2018 season.

The Top Ten

1 Julio Jones Julio Jones Quintorris Lopez "Julio" Jones is a current wide receiver who plays for the Atlanta Falcons of the National Football League. Jones was selected sixth overall in 2011 to the Atlanta Falcons, and since made it to one Super Bowl.

He’s the NFL’s second best wide receiver, and despite a down year in 2017, he still had over 1,000 yards receiving and 3 touchdowns. He’ll be a star in 2018 so as long as he’s healthy. - PackFan2005

2 Matt Ryan Matt Ryan Matthew Thomas "Matt" Ryan, nicknamed "Matty Ice," is an American football quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons of the National Football League.

He won’t have another MVP season, but he’ll be pretty dang good. He made the playoffs the second year in a row for Atlanta and even won a game against the heavily favored Rams. He is the man for Atlanta, and he can stay consistent for a few years yet. - PackFan2005

3 Devonta Freeman Devonta Freeman Devonta Freeman is an American football running back for the Atlanta Falcons of the National Football League.

A solid 2017 season had him rushing for over 800 yards and 7 touchdowns, and catching another. It was not one of his greatest seasons, but I think he’ll be a top ten back in 2018. Not to mention he’s part of one of the best running back duos in the NFL. - PackFan2005

4 Alex Mack Alex Mack Javon Alexander "Alex" Mack is an American football center for the Atlanta Falcons of the National Football League.

Mack is the leader of Atlanta’s offensive line like a center should be. He has plenty of pro bowl seasons ahead of him as one of the leagues premier centers. - PackFan2005

5 Deion Jones Deion Jones

Jones made his first pro bowl in 2017, racking up 138 tackles, 3 interceptions, and a sack. He’ll definitely produce more pro bowl caliber seasons in the future. - PackFan2005

6 Tevin Coleman Tevin Coleman Tevin Ford Coleman is an American football running back for the Atlanta Falcons of the National Football League.

The other running back in Atlanta’s duo, he rushed for a career best 628 and five touchdowns, and three receiving touchdowns. He’ll be sharing a lot of touches with Devonta Freeman in 2018. - PackFan2005

7 Keanu Neal Keanu Neal

Neal also made his first pro bowl in 2017, with 118 tackles, 3 forced fumbles, and an interception, all while starting 16 games. Atlanta’s young defense just keeps getting better. - PackFan2005

8 Desmond Trufant Desmond Trufant Desmond Trufant is an American football cornerback for the Atlanta Falcons of the National Football League.

Trufant is Atlanta’s top corner, but only finished with 2 picks, a sack, and a touchdown. Still, he’s key to the Falcons secondary success. He’ll most likely do a lot better in 2018. - PackFan2005

9 Vic Beasley Vic Beasley Victor "Vic" Beasley Jr. is an American football outside linebacker for the Atlanta Falcons of the National Football League.

2017 was a major fall from 2016. He had five sacks and one forced fumble, but he’s still a good linebacker for a very young and talented defense. - PackFan2005

10 Calvin Ridley

Another Falcons receiver from Alabama who will be a good number two receiver behind Julio Jones. Ridley will produce in 2018. - PackFan2005
