The Falcons looked to have a clear direction in the 2022 NFL Draft, targeting physical players to establish a toughness in the locker room. Although it seems that the Falcons prioritized physicality, a lot of the new members of Atlanta’s 2022 class tested well athletically. Using RAS (Relative Athletic Score), let’s see how they match up

WR Drake London

London was injured during the combine, but he told the Falcons he ran a 4.54 40-yard dash.

EDGE Arnold Ebiketie

As you can see, although he isn’t the biggest edge rusher, Ebiketie tested very well in terms of explosiveness and agility.

LB Troy Andersen

As we all know, Andersen was one of the athletic freaks of this class. He has the best testing numbers for a linebacker ever, according to RAS.

QB Desmond Ridder

Although Ridder isn’t known for his athleticism, he tested very well and looks to be a foundational piece for the Falcons.

EDGE DeAngelo Malone

Malone is similar to Ebiketie, while he isn’t as athletic, he is a very explosive rusher that’s a bit undersized for the position.

RB Tyler Allgeier

Allgeier is a more physical back with a little less wiggle, but he’s still an exciting player because of his size.

IOL Justin Shaffer

Justin Shaffer was a mauler in the run game at Georgia, but he needs some work as a pass protector. That reflects in his testing.

TE John FitzPatrick

FitzPatrick is a blueprint Lee Smith replacement; he’s 6’7 with soft hands and is a rock solid blocker at the position.
