Every offseason, Pro Football Focus breaks down the best players at each position heading into the season. We’ve seen Matt Ryan crack the top ten quarterbacks, and two offensive linemen — Jake Matthews and Chris Lindstrom — also ranked among the best in the league at their respective positions. Now, on the defensive side of the ball, another Falcon has made a top ten list, as Deion Jones came in at number seven among linebackers.
Last year, Jones was #5 in these rankings, but I can’t really complain with this list as far as the Falcons are concerned. Wagner is the undisputed best linebacker in football, and after last year, Warner emerged as one of the top linebackers in the league. I would probably have Lavonte David, Demario Davis, and Darius Leonard ahead of Eric Kendricks, but I can’t argue with anyone ahead of Jones on this list. He hasn’t been AS productive since the injury he suffered in 2018, but I do believe he will ascend on this list again if he can continue to stay healthy.
