Falcons land potential franchise QB in latest mock draft

COLLEGE FOOTBALL: SEP 23 Rutgers at Michigan

The Falcons currently hold the 9th overall pick after dropping their third straight to the Cardinals. If the status quo is the status quo, the club would be selecting in the first ten selections for the fourth consecutive draft cycle.

If that’s the case, Atlanta would’ve missed the playoffs for the sixth time in as many years and will certainly be looking for a long-term answer at quarterback after watching mediocrity since the new regime took over.

Believe it or not, the Falcons have a mathematical chance of ending up with the 1st overall pick, which would surely be used on one of Caleb Williams or Drake Maye. Realistically, they won’t be in the sweepstakes for one of the generational prospects, but they could be in line to land another potential franchise quarterback.

The latest Sports Illustrated mock draft has Terry Fontenot and Arthur Smith selecting Michigan’s J.J. McCarthy with the 9th overall pick.
