The Atlanta Falcons do have some young talent across the roster

The Falcons are predicted to be one of the worst teams in 2022, and while it is hard to make a valid argument against that claim, they do have some young talent at positions on their roster.

The media has been pretty positive about what Atlanta did in the draft and certainly, the latest draft class by Terry Fontenot needs to turn out for the team to have any kind of chance in the coming years.

However, when it comes to this ranking, rookies will not be included here as it is not fair to say they are already better than other players who have actually played in NFL games in their lifetime. To add to that, Calvin Ridley will also not be included since he will not provide anything for the team following his year-long suspension.
