2014

Southward will compete with Dwight Lowery for the starting free safety role. As a third round pick, it wouldn't be surprising if the Falcons went with the veteran to start the year, but Southward would be in line for a big statistical season if he could earn the job out of the gate. Assuming the starter anchored the role for the entire season, a 60-80 tackle season with a few interceptions would be par for the course.
