  • There was no mystery as to what the Atlanta Falcons set out to accomplish during the 2019 NFL Draft. In 2018, the Falcons struggled to find balance offensively and as a result former MVP Matt Ryan took entirely too many hits last season. Enter a pair of first round draft picks in OG/C Chris Lindstrom out of Boston College and OT/OG Kaleb McGary from Washington. Both Lindstrom and McGary have some work to do in terms of pass protection but this pair of Atlanta Falcons first round picks should go a long way in improving the offensive line from a run-blocking perspective. Throughout the remainder of the draft the Falcons focused on adding depth to their roster. The Falcons wouldn't make another selection during the 2019 NFL Draft until Day 3 in the fourth round adding talented albeit inconsistent CB Kendall Sheffield out of Ohio State and defensive lineman John Cominsky out of Charleston. Couch Potato General Manager anticipates that both players need some additional refinement before seeing the field but have the goods to be solid contributors. Another pair of draft picks, in the 5th round resulted in RB Qadree Ollison out of Pittsburgh and CB Jordan Miller of Washington. Ollison figures to be the "BIG" back in Atlanta but may have limited opportunities if Devonta Freeman can stay healthy and Ito Smith continues force his way onto the field. Miller is a good (Cover 3) schematic fit in Atlanta, however, he'll have to get stronger and become more physical to carve out a role in Atlanta's secondary. The last of the Atlanta Falcons draft picks netted RB Marcus Green out of Louisiana Monroe. Green's chances of contributing in the backfield are remote at best but he figures to be the Falcons' primary return specialist in the often overlooked 3rd phase of the game. Couch Potato GM. CPGM.
