Four late round steals that are ideal for the Atlanta Falcons

1 of 4

The Atlanta Falcons are heading into the 2020 NFL Draft looking to fill some major holes within the roster. The front office did a nice job of finding three starters via free agency and now they must do the same thing in the draft.

As we know, Atlanta Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff has had some really bad drafts over the last 12 seasons but given what has transpired over the last month, there is at least a glimmer of hope that he nails the draft.

Blogging Dirty noted back in February, that despite missing on his initial draft picks, Dimitroff has done a really good job of finding above-average starters late in the draft and this draft will be no different. There is plenty of depth at certain spots in this draft and that will bode well for the Atlanta Falcons.

If the Falcons look to bolster the defensive line and secondary in the first three rounds, here are several picks in the later rounds that can come in and add depth as well possible a starter or two in rounds four through seven.

Solomon Kindley, OG, UGA

Draft Profile:

"Heavyweight boxer on the interior — he pairs incredibly well with another power player in Andrew Thomas to give the Georgia Bulldogs ample punch in the ground game off to the left. Kindley has a ton of pop to his hands and provides ample anchor, allowing him to either roll through contact and carry his momentum forward or sit down on charges when he’s in pass protection. He’s pleasantly mobile when forced to work laterally — he’s worked across the face of defenders on reach situations. He’s got a ton of mass below the waist, giving him the opportunity to keep his center of gravity low and wrestle with positioning effectively in one on one situations."

Solomon Kindley is an absolute force in the middle at 6-foot-4 and 336 pounds. Currently, the Atlanta Falcons have former first-round pick James Carpenter slated as the starting left guard with newly acquired Justin McCray to back him up but there is room for a guy like Kindley.

Whether he backs up both guard spots or beats out Carpenter, he will be a steal in the fourth round for whichever team takes him. Make no mistake about it, he will be available when the Falcons draft in the fourth round.
