Of course, not everyone from this haul will make the Falcons final roster, or the practice squad. Nevertheless, the Falcons have added a significant number of players to their squad heading into training camp and pre-season. The Falcons currently have 86 players heading into that period, however you can expect a few more moves as they look to get under the salary cap.
