On Wednesday, CBS Sports unveiled a list from Cody Benjamin that shows his rankings for all 32 NFL rosters. 

The Buffalo Bills, Los Angeles Chargers and Los Angeles Rams are at the top of Benjamin's list, and rightfully so. All three teams are loaded with talent. 

On the flip side, Benjamin has the Atlanta Falcons ranked No. 32 on his list. In other words, he believes they have the worst roster in the league.

For starters, the Falcons traded Pro Bowl quarterback Matt Ryan this offseason. He's now on the Indianapolis Colts. 

The Falcons also lost star wideout Calvin Ridley to a lengthy suspension. The Alabama product will miss all 17 games this season. 

Atlanta drafted a few exciting prospects, such as Drake London and Desmond Ridder. Nonetheless, there are still too many question marks surrounding this roster. 

The only real positive for Atlanta is that it has some intriguing pieces on defense. Marlon Davidson, Deion Jones, Grady Jarrett and A.J. Terrell will be asked to play a huge role this fall. 

The Falcons will start the season at home against the New Orleans Saints.
