- RB1: Mike Davis
- RB2: Ito Smith
- RB3: Khalil Herbert (Draft, Virginia Tech)
It will be exciting to see how much Mike Davis will produce under Arthur Smith. He certainly showed a lot during last season with the Carolina Panthers – especially when he played the Falcons.
It seemed like no one could tackle him, so Falcons fans should be excited to watch him suit up for the team.
Ito Smith had a bad year this past year, he should be able to produce like he had in the previous seasons. He is a guy who can make defenders look silly, and again Arthur Smith will do wonders for “The Judge.”
Khalil Herbert would be a nice pick for the Atlanta Falcons. He is an exciting runner who was not really well-known before. He would provide a spark for the Atlanta Falcons offense.
He would also provide a lot of value in the passing game. He is certainly a guy to watch in the mid-rounds.
- WR1: Julio Jones
- WR2: Calvin Ridley
- WR3: Russell Gage
- WR4: Olamide Zaccheaus
- WR5: Christian Blake
Nothing really changes on the wide receiver front.
Julio Jones will hopefully stay more healthy than he was last season. If he does he will no doubt have a stellar season. Calvin Ridley will continue to burn defensive backs and score touchdowns. Russell Gage and Olamide Zaccheaus will continue to get better.
Christian Blake is probably the one guy that is iffy to be on the roster during the opening game. He hasn’t really made much of an impact in games so far. It seemed like the previous coaching staff really liked him, and that the new coaching staff sees something in him but don’t be surprised if he doesn’t make the roster.
- TE1: Kyle Pitts (Draft, Florida)
- TE2: Hayden Hurst
- TE3: Lee Smith
- TE4: Jaedan Graham
Kyle Pitts would be a huge pickup for the team if they were to select him with their top pick.
No one in college was able to stop him – he is simply incredible and will be a dominant tight end in the NFL. He is a one-of-a-kind player, who posses top receiving ability.
He is the best pass catcher in the draft class and will make this Atlanta Falcons offense even more elite.
Hayden Hurst will no doubt improve under Arthur Smith.
Smith loves his tight ends, as he was previously the tight ends coach for the Tennessee Titans. If the Falcons do select Pitts, it would no doubt be a lot of fun to watch Julio, Ridley, Pitts, and Hurst on the same field. It would give Matt Ryan so many elite weapons to throw to.
Lee Smith would basically make the roster just as the blocking tight end. Pitts and Hurst are not known for their blocking, but they aren’t awful at it, Lee would make up for that when the offense needs it.
Jaedan Graham has shown some flashes and would hopefully improve with Arthur coaching him.
