Atlanta Falcons team building formula is almost complete
The Atlanta Falcons just finished their NFL draft and signed most of their important free agent figures that will help this team succeed in the near future.
Admittedly, this is a team that thinks they are a few pieces away from competing for a Superbowl.
The Daniel Jeremiah and Bucky Brooks formula will tell us how close the Atlanta Falcons are to the Superbowl. Last time this formula was brought up we talked about the offense and if the quarterback they had could get Falcons and the fans to the pinnacle of that promised land.
Therefore, we learned that the Atlanta Falcons had Matt Ryan which is a check in the quarterback column. Additionally, if you want to learn more about why Matt Ryan is a check click here.
Admittedly, most of us might have forgotten about what the building blocks are for guiding our fans to a championship parade. The formula on the offensive side of the ball is a general under center which is our quarterback Matt Ryan, the supplementary pieces will be at least three good offensive linemen and no less than three offensive playmakers.
We will know talk about the pieces the Atlanta Falcons put around Matt Ryan and we will see if they can help Matty Ice to drive the boat.
Looking at our offensive line through the eyes of Profootballfocus, our offensive line falls short due to missing one more quality offensive lineman. Chris Lindstrom missed a ton of time last year due to his foot injury, Kaleb McGary was hurt and did not live up to expectations, however, one of these two will show out next year and they will be third and/or fourth pieces of quality lineman.
Accordingly, Alex Mack and Jake Matthews are the two good to great offensive lineman as of right now. Certainly, the three offensive playmakers will not fall short of recognition for the Falcons, we all know Julio Jones is one of the best if not the best playmaker in the NFL.
Additionally, the Atlanta Falcons have Calvin Ridley who is coming into his own at Receiver and at running back we have Todd Gurley who is a beast when healthy, that is the thing will Gurley be healthy throughout this season.
As such, on the offensive side of the ball, the Atlanta Falcons team building has been good. Next time we will look at the defensive side of the ball and see if the Falcons are we they want to be.
