Who could the Falcons target on Day 3 of the 2022 NFL Draft? 

There are still depth needs to fill within certain position groups in Atlanta. What are they? Who could fit? 

The Falcons have three picks remaining in the 2022 NFL Draft. Even with the final rounds approaching there are still positions to prioritize when Atlanta are making their decisions. It's true that once you get to a certain point of Day 3 that you're really just looking for the true best player available, but the Falcons are in a unique position where they could still be filling a need with whatever direction they decide to go in.

The Falcons do not currently have a fourth round pick. But there's always an option of a trade being on the table to get back into it.

With all of this in mind, let's take a look at 32 players (with the focus on the line of scrimmage) the Falcons could target with their final picks.
