Falcons Draft Profile: Javon Kinlaw

In my last article on Yetur Gross-Matos, I detailed the possibility of drafting a technician. In this edition, we will investigate a less refined prospect with incredible potential. The Falcons have already met with a dozen defensive lineman, including Javon Kinlaw. Kinlaw is quoted saying, “They (Falcons) just wanted to get some information, nothing too

Falcons Draft Profile: Yetur Gross-Matos

Falcons need both defensive line starters and depth players to not only rush the passer but defend against the run, so where does Thomas Dimitroff even begin? While Takk McKinley has been bogged down with injuries in consecutive seasons, there is a belief that he still will put it together if healthy. Atlanta needs another

Falcons Draft Profile: A.J. Epenesa

Epenesa should be a prospect the Falcons focus on more so than others, and there are several reasons as to why. First, the defensive line needs an immediate starter. Epenesa could be an impact player from day one, replacing Vic Beasley. Second, the defense showed promise in the last half of the season but needs

Falcons: Offensive line targets in the middle rounds of the draft

The Atlanta front office, Thomas Dimitroff in particular, absolutely butchered the bolstering of the offensive line. Instead of using a model based on production, he decided to add as many bodies as he could. Through the draft and free agency, he acquired four new offensive linemen last year. Kaleb McGary and Chris Lindstrom via the

Falcons: What happens if De’Vondre Campbell leaves in free agency?

In January there were reports from ESPN’s Vaughn McClure that the Falcons had “preliminary talks” with De’Vondre Campbell’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus. The report is vague, and I believe contract talks are in limbo due to Arthur Blank’s evaluation of the entire franchise, and the Falcons limited cap space. Now that the front office and coaching

Falcons: Free Agent tight end options if Austin Hooper walks

There is still a possibility the Falcons and Austin Hooper settle on a contract extension this offseason, but he is going to garner interest from nearly any team that has cap space. And rightfully so, Hooper averaged over a 70% catch rate all four years with Atlanta while finishing under 10 yards per reception just

Falcons: Free Agent offensive guard options

Even though the Falcons spent two first-round selections on offensive lineman in last year’s draft, there is still a need for a starting guard, as James Carpenter and Jamon Brown were not reliable in 2019. And with limited funds available for free agents, Falcons’ owner, Arthur Blank, stated that he expects the team to explore

Defensive line free agents the Falcons should keep eyes on

Though Thomas Dimitroff is financially restricted, it is entirely possible for frugal 2020 free agency signings. The defensive line is in question, with the Falcons in need of both starters and rotational pieces. Grady Jarrett is slotted in the middle for the foreseeable future but lacks a running mate. Still, this article is highlighting realistic

Senior Bowl prospects the Falcons should target

Essentially, the Senior Bowl is an all-star game, but it has become a critical event for scouts and general managers’ perception of an athletes’ physical and mental abilities. 1 vs. 1s are stressed in practice and gives those in attendance a notion of confidence or lack thereof in the player’s ability to win those crucial

Are the Falcons in salary cap hell?

Every NFL general manager has a salary cap expert on their front office staff, but ultimately a team’s standing with the cap is tied to the GM. Everything a team does from a roster construction standpoint is percolated by the salary cap. Since its introduction in 1994, organizations and their GMs have steadily found new
