We are fast approaching the 2016 NFL Draft. What would be the best case scenario for the Atlanta Falcons in the opening three rounds?
Chicago awaits for Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn and general manager Thomas Dimitroff, who will be deciding this week which players they want to add to the roster in the 2016 NFL Draft. What would be the best case scenario for the Falcons in the top three rounds?
With just five selections in the draft, the Falcons need to get it right. They have picks in the first, second, third and fourth rounds but don’t own another pick until the seventh. That’s what makes the opening two days so crucial for Atlanta, and that’s what we will focus on in this exercise.
For argument’s sake, we’ll also assume that the Falcons aren’t involved in any trades. It’s possible they will look to move down to the twenties and acquire some extra picks, but due to the wealth of first-round talent there’s no guarantee a team will be willing to move up to No. 17.
Let’s look at the opening three rounds of the draft and determine what would make it a great scenario for the Falcons.
