Surprisingly, the Falcons have actually been really solid up front in 2022. Kaleb McGary has been a big part of that, grading out as the 18th best tackle overall by PFF. Regardless, McGary is in a contract year, and PFF thinks the Falcons will replace him in the draft with one of the best players in college football:

Skoronski is undoubtedly an All American, and is one of the most technically sound prospects to come out of college in a while at the tackle position. Like Rashawn Slater before him, Skoronski is a violent run blocker and stout pass blocker:
The Falcons could use some help at Tackle, but if Kaleb McGary continues to play at this level, Atlanta will likely offer him a second contract — even after declining his fifth-year option. Here’s what PFF had to say about Skoronski and the Falcons:
Perhaps Skoronski isn’t the most physically gifted tackle in the class, but he is easily the most technically refined. He’s on pace for one of the stingiest pass-blocking seasons in PFF College history. On 241 pass-blocking snaps this year, Skoronski has allowed only two pressures. He’ll fit in perfectly across from Jake Matthews.
It’s too early for the Falcons to make these decisions, but hopefully McGary continues to play at a high level — regardless of whoever Atlanta picks in the draft.
