Falcons: Best prospects available on day two of NFL draft

cgw092119135 notredame v georgia

The first round of the NFL draft wasn’t as crazy as I originally suspected, but there were still a few moves that raised my eyebrow.

There’s plenty of talent available for the Falcons in round one and round two, and if you want to see how I have these guys ranked, my big boards are below:

2021 NFL Draft Big Board (Offense)

2021 NFL Draft Big Board (Defense)


Skill Players:


RB Javonte Williams, North Carolina

RB Michael Carter, North Carolina

RB Kenny Gainwell, Memphis

RB Trey Sermon, Ohio State

WR Terrace Marshall, LSU

WR Elijah Moore, Ole Miss

WR Dyami Brown, North Carolina

WR Rondale Moore, Purdue

WR Amon-Ra St. Brown, USC

TE Tommy Tremble, Notre Dame

TE Pat Freiermuth, Penn State


I don’t expect the Falcons to venture into this group outside of running back, but some solid names are on this list. Javonte Williams is my RB1, and Trey Sermon has potential as a feature back in an offense. He may be available on day three. Carter and Gainwell are both change-of-pace backs, for the most part, so I doubt the Falcons would spend a day two pick on either. I won’t get into the wide receivers, but this is a talented group — especially Marshall, Moore, and Brown. There’s no shot the Falcons double-dip on tight ends with two of their first three picks, but Tommy Tremble is an amazing blocker, and Pat Freiermuth is a lethal vertical threat. I left quarterback off this list because I don’t think any of them are worth a day two pick.


Offensive Line:


IOL Wyatt Davis, Ohio State

IOL Creed Humphrey, Oklahoma

IOL Landon Dickerson, Alabama

IOL Quinn Meinerz, Wisconsin-Whitewater

IOL Kendrick Greene, Illinois

IOL Trey Smith, Tennessee

IOL Aaron Banks, Notre Dame

IOL Drew Dalmon, Stanford

IOL David Moore, Grambling

IOL Ben Cleveland, Georgia

OT Robert Hainsey, Notre Dame

OT Teven Jenkins, Oklahoma State

OT Liam Eichenberg, Notre Dame

OT Brady Christensen, BYU

OT Sam Cosmi, Texas

OT Walker Little, Stanford

OT Spencer Brown, Northern Illinois

OT Dillon Radunz, North Dakota State


I’m not gonna talk about all of these guys, but anyone with “IOL” next to their name is fair game for the Falcons on day two. I wouldn’t mind spending the 35th pick on Wyatt Davis or Creed Humphrey, but I think the value you could get in a guy like Quinn Meinerz, Trey Smith, Kendrick Greene, or Drew Dalman means you should stick to the best player available.


Front Seven:


IDL Christian Barmore, Alabama

IDL Daviyon Nixon, Iowa

IDL Milton Williams, Louisiana Tech

IDL Alim McNeill, North Carolina State

IDL Levi Onwuzurike, Washington

EDGE Azeez Ojulari, Georgia

EDGE Carlos Basham, Wake Forest

EDGE Joseph Ossai, Texas

EDGE Rashad Weaver, Pittsburgh

EDGE Ronnie Perkins, Oklahoma

LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, Notre Dame

LB Nick Bolton, Missouri

LB Chazz Surratt, North Carolina

LB Jabril Cox, LSU


No interior defensive linemen were taken in round one, but I like the value of Milton Williams or Alim McNeill later on in this draft. Daviyon Nixon is a bit of a project, but he could develop into a monster with refined technique. The big names on this list are obviously Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah and Azeez Ojulari. Ojulari has some alleged knee problems, and Owusu-Koramoah may be a better fit at safety. Still, there’s no denying there are two very talented football players that could start day one for the Falcons available. I’m not sure either guy makes it to the 35th pick, but it would be hard to pass up on either if they did. Carlos Basham and Joseph Ossai would be nice scheme fits as well.




CB Kelvin Joseph, Kentucky

CB Asante Samuel Jr, Florida State

CB Aaron Robinson, UCF

CB Elijah Molden, Washington

CB Ifeatu Melifonwu, Syracuse

CB Tyson Campbell, Georgia

CB Deommodore Lenoir, Oregon

S Trevon Moehrig, TCU

S Jevon Holland, Oregon

S Richie Grant, UCF

S James Wiggins, Cincinnati

S Jamar Johnson, Indiana

S Hamsah Nasirildeen, Florida State


Of course, with no safeties selected in round one, the Falcons could have their choice of safety on day two. I really like Jevon Holland and Richie Grant, but this is a pretty deep class with a few enticing options. If you want to consider Owusu-Koramoah a safety, he falls into that category as well. I think the cornerback group is pretty deep too, and it would be hard to go wrong with any of the guys above. Ifeatu Melifonwu would be a nice pick in round three if the Falcons don’t go with an Asante Samuel Jr or Kelvin Joseph in round two.
