Atlanta Falcons raiding the “NFC Least”
Washington Football Team:
Brandon Scherff – RG
Chase Young – DE
Brandon Scherff is no doubt the unpopular pick here, but he is also one of the best guards in the league and could fill a gaping hole opposite of Chris Lindstrom. Terry McLaurin, Antonio Gibson, and Logan Thomas are three players that could also consider.
Remember the time when Atlanta Falcons fans thought we would end up with Chase Young? Good times. There is no arguing the decision here, he has potential that is through the roof.
New York Giants:
Saquon Barkley – RB
Leonard Williams – DE
People forget about Saquon Barkley going into this next season, but he will make fans remember his name real quick. Having Barkley, Ridley, and Pitts would be something to behold, it would be nearly impossible to stop.
Leonard Williams has made his career with the other New York team. He was hyped coming out of the draft a while back, but is starting to consistently play like was expected of him with such a high draft pick. No doubt the Atlanta Falcons would welcome him in to help this not-so-talented pass-rushing group.
CeeDee Lamb – WR
DeMarcus Lawrence – DE
CeeDee Lamb and A.J. Terrell will always be linked to each other, even if it is extremely annoying to hear uneducated fans say that the Falcons made a mistake taking Terrell. They do not at all. This is not to say that CeeDee Lamb will not be good, because he probably will. The Falcons would love to have both of them.
If we are being honest here, Keanu Neal was thought about here. Watching how great he has been playing in the preseason is fun to watch, but also sad. DeMarcus Lawrence is the more proven player and is a position that the Falcons have lacked for a long time.
Lane Johnson – RT
Brandon Graham – DE
It was a very difficult choice between Lane Johnson and Brandon Brooks. Both players had absolutely spectacular 2019 seasons. Brooks was hurt all of last season, while Johnson’s play fell a little bit. The deciding factor was the fact that it is generally more difficult to find a star offensive tackle than a star offensive guard. Either of these guys are safe picks though.
Much like on offense for the Eagles, it is a toss-up between two players on the line. Brandon Graham or Fletcher Cox? Graham had a better season last year and is a bigger area of need for the Falcons. Graham has always been underrated, so having him would be incredible.
