The Atlanta Falcons will have a lot of choices with their initial 2021 NFL draft pick.

The Atlanta Falcons have the fourth overall selection and no one knows what they will do with that pick. Quarterback, defensive line, offensive line, and even a tight end have been mocked to the Falcons.

The new regime in place is a good thing when considering some of the big misses this franchise has had in the past six NFL drafts with selections like Vic Beasley and Takk McKinley.

There’s no secret that the Falcons are in cap hell with little to no money to spend to help fix the holes on the team, though Fontenot seems to believe in addressing immediate needs in free agency.

The fourth overall pick could be used as leverage to fill some of those spots including the future at the quarterback position.

It’s not like the Falcons are in dire need of a quarterback like some teams are.

If you know anything about teams in the NFL, then you know if they feel like they need a quarterback, they are willing to give up almost anything to get it – it is the most valuable position in all North American sports.

That said, why not dream big if you are an Atlanta Falcons fan and think about some of the elite guys you trade for with a selection this high? The following trades will be close to impossible to pull off but hey that’s why this is a fantasy article.

A writer can dream too, right?
