1st Round-14th Overall Pick
The Falcons have no choice but to address their defensive front for this selection. This is THE DRAFT to fix this issue because there is so much talent and not only hyped talent but battle tested talent in this draft.
Montez Sweat is a good prospect to have, you might not see dividends off the bat but he has the speed to get to the quarterback which is needed in the SEC.
Dre’Mont Jones is a solid defensive tackle and would be a great insurance policy for the Falcons if they are unable to retain Grady Jarrett.
The player we need the most, the one we need to go after is Christian Wilkins. Did you see this guy against Alabama? He was disrupting an offense that went through the whole season un-bothered for the most part and he did it in silence. He didn’t have to rack up tackles but he was disruptive enough to have that Alabama offense off its game.
Christian Wilkins made himself a lot of money during this game with the absence of Dexter Lawrence and this would be the best possible scenario for the Falcons in the first round. He would also be a great insurance policy if we can’t get Grady Jarrett back.
