Atlanta Falcons can’t afford to screw up the 2020 Draft


The Atlanta Falcons entered the offseason with quite a few questions. From fifth-year options, free agency and of the course the draft, 2020 is a make or break year for many within the organization.

The Atlanta Falcons have issues with their running game, an inconsistent offensive line, a questionable defense that shows up when it wants to, and depth.

Fixing those issues is the reason why the Falcons can’t afford to screw up this draft.

The fans already question the abilities of the front office due to some recent decisions like Vic Beasley’s fifth-year option and drafting two offensive lineman with both of their first-round picks in last year’s draft when there were other issues that could have been addressed.

The NFL combine took place this previous weekend and anyone with two eyes could see how much talent is about to enter the NFL. The running back that is about to enter the league is about to some damage here in the near future and the Falcons have a chance to select one and it doesn’t have to be D’Andre Swift.

The pass-rushing blues that the Falcons have had for a couple of years can easily be addressed as well. Even though it would be a godsend for the Falcons to somehow land Chase Young, names like A.J. Epenesa and K’Lavon Chaisson are some big-time names that can step in and help immediately.

With all the recent injuries the Falcons have had in the secondary, guys like A.J. Terrell, Trevon Diggs, Grant Delpit, and Damon Arnette have the ability to step in and hold their own.

The Atlanta Falcons franchise is literally at a crossroads right now. The choices that they make in the upcoming draft could determine how competitive they can be in the new few years or just let everyone know that maybe this front office and coaching staff just can’t cut it.

Everyone was expecting Dan Quinn and TD to be let go of during and after the season but the ever forgiving  Arthur Blank has given them another chance. The leash is not long in Atlanta and the coaching staff and front office need to make the best of it and it starts with the draft.
