Falcons: NFL Draft order set

DKB221120032 chi vs atl

The Falcons won yesterday to move to 7-10 on the season, the same record they finished with last year. But this time, they did it with Marcus Mariota and Desmond Ridder under center rather than Matt Ryan. I would say that is an improvement, given the team came into the season operating with the most dead cap of any team. There were a lot of positives for the Falcons, and they have a chance to round out the rest of their roster this offseason with the second most cap space of any team and a top 10 draft pick.

With the regular season now wrapped up, the Falcons will officially be picking 8th in this year’s draft.

  1. Chicago Bears
  2. Houston Texans
  3. Arizona Cardinals
  4. Indianapolis Colts
  5. Seattle Seahawks (From Denver)
  6. Detroit Lions (from LA Rams)
  7. Las Vegas Raiders
  8. Atlanta Falcons
  9. Carolina Panthers
  10. Philadelphia Eagles (From New Orleans)
  11. Tennessee Titans
  12. Houston Texans (From Cleveland)
  13. New York Jets
  14. New England Patriots
  15. Green Bay Packers
  16. Washington Commanders

Had the Falcons not won their final two games, they would have picked a few spots higher, but the way this group went into the offseason is far more important than a slightly higher draft pick. For the first time since the Super Bowl collapse, Atlanta has some positive momentum as they head into the offseason. That’s a breath of fresh air, and they should have no problem finding a very talented player with the 8th overall pick — the same place where they found Drake London a year ago.
