Following back-to-back 7-9 finishes, it's been made very clear that the bar is much higher for the Atlanta Falcons in 2020. And as we all know, it all starts with a successful offseason, specifically making the right decisions in free agency and knocking it out of the park when it comes to the NFL Draft in late April.
The Falcons currently hold seven picks, including their first one at No. 16. Will they trade up, trade down or stay put? Much will depend on what happens early on in the draft.
And in my latest mock draft, things fall right into place for the Falcons to address one of those needs.
Atlanta currently has needs at edge rusher, cornerback and offensive line. Depending on what happens in free agency, the Falcons could have more holes to fill at linebacker, tight end and running back.
So, without further ado, here is mock draft 2.0. Let me know how you feel about the pick here. A new version will drop every Wednesday between now and the NFL Draft. Enjoy.
