2022 NFL Draft: League media draft grades for Falcons Day 3 selections

Atlanta selected two players from the University of Georgia, their first picks from the school since 2011.

Tyler Allgeier, RB, BYU

Bleacher Report: A

Brent Sobleski: The Atlanta Falcons can't rely on Cordarrelle Patterson as their primary ball-carrier. Allgeier can be the workhorse and punish defenders in head coach Arthur Smith's zone-heavy scheme.

CBS Sports: C+

Chris Trapasso: Boulder of a back who actually excels in a wide-zone scheme, so it's a logical fit in Arthur Smith's offense. Average-at-best elusiveness, minimal speed. Some power to his game.

Justin Shaffer, OG, Georgia

Bleacher Report: A

Brent Sobleski: Chris Lindstrom is a keeper at right guard for the Atlanta Falcons. Left guard and Jalen Mayfield are significant question marks. Shaffer may be a sixth-round pick, but look for him to immediately push for playing time as a legitimate people-mover along the offensive interior.

CBS Sports: C

Chris Trapasso: Will add run-blocking prowess to Atlanta's offensive line, but a major liability in pass pro. Length and girth to live inside in the NFL.

We take an inside look at the Atlanta Falcons' war room during the 2022 NFL Draft.

John FitzPatrick, TE, Georgia

Bleacher Report: C

Brent Sobleski: Georgia Tight end John FitzPatrick isn't going to provide much in the passing game. After all, he caught 17 passes during his Georgia career. He is a massive (6'7", 249 lbs) edge-of-the line blocker. The Atlanta Falcons already have Kyle Pitts. FitzPatrick is his antithesis.

CBS Sports: C

Chris Trapasso: Blocking type TE who works tirelessly to move people. Room for improvement there. Not much of a separator but plays with reliable hands.
