The Falcons have made some minor tweaks to their depth chart between the season opener and Sunday's contest against the host Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Drew Dalman is now the backup left guard behind Jalen Mayfield, who started there in a loss to Philadelphia. Dalman, a rookie from Stanford, is now the primary reserve at all three interior line spots.

It was also clear that Josh Rosen is the No. 2 quarterback when he relieved Matt Ryan late in the Eagles loss. That's clear on this depth chart, when he's listed behind Ryan, with Feleipe Franks in the third spot.
Parker Hesse joins the depth chart after being activated from the reserve-COVID-19 list.
