What are realistic expectations for Jeff Okudah with the Falcons?

The Falcons made a spicy trade yesterday, landing former #3 overall pick Jeff Okudah from the Lions for a fifth-round pick. The talent the former Ohio State Buckeyes cornerback possessed in college is undeniable, which has most Atlanta fans understandably excited about the move. However, there’s a reason why the Lions — who had one of the worst pass defenses in the league last season — were willing to part ways with him for such little compensation.

Okudah hasn’t been a reliable NFL player to this point in his career, but could that change with the Falcons? On the latest episode of SportsTalkATL, we discuss the role of Atlanta’s newest acquisition this season and whether expectations should be tempered.
