    Damnit no man take Pitts

  • PANTTERA1959

    Pitts measures better then Kelsey. As a matter of fact Pitts measurables are closer to Julio then Kelsey. Pitts is the best TE to ever come out of college. I hope he ends up in a Falcons uniform.

    • Dhikshith Gajulapalli

      With pitts, if Julio plays great next year then the Falcons have the best wr trio in the league.

  • Annette Scott

    Pats will move up to fourth & pick Justin Fields. Bengals will pick OT Suwell. Dolphons will get TE Pitts.

  • DJ Wallace

    Atlanta can't stop anybody. If I were Atlanta, I would swap picks with Denver if they want the QB, then take the best defensive player available at #9. Farley, Parsons or Jaelen Phillips.

    Ok I’m not a falcon fan but what if they trade down with the Broncos. The Broncos get a qb and falcons can still get the best corner they don’t need anymore offense they can put up points but need to stop blowing leads.

  • Huncho DaYoungin

    Trade Matt Ryan for a 2 n 3 rd pick draft Justin fields or trey lance 4 pick

      Bru these Falcons Fans in ATL are delusional they still think 36 year old QB going work his magic like 2016 and win super bowl, when the past 3 year they have been losing, i have said the same thing Trade Matt Ryan and get some draft picks and draft one of Stud QB in this year draft, fans are so crazy about Matt Ryan if you even sneez his name on being trade they will call you every bad name from dictionary.

    Patriots: 4th overall pick Falcons: 15th overall pick, 46th pick, 2022 second and fourth, and JC Jackson

    • KangSan Kim
      KangSan Kim

      @Darian Milliken I mean I’m pretty sure the patriots have a second round tender on Jackson, and the falcons are in desperate need for secondary. I wouldn’t mind a first next year instead of Jackson cuz that means we don’t have to give up a second rounder, but I think this trade would be good for both teams 🤷‍♂️

    • Darian Milliken
      Darian Milliken

      Everything is correct expect for the Jackson part. Also Atlanta gets next years first as well. It would have to be a high draft pick return.

    Stop....don't do it Falcons! Please take the best player and don't try to be too cute like the ATL Hawks GM trading generational talent Luka Doncic to Dallas for a really really good PG in Trae Young. Don't be dumb ATL Falcons and draft the best player at 4 in Kyle Pitts

    If we trade from 4 to 24 or even 20 I won’t watch the Falcons this season, I take trading back to 9 but not to the 20’s. No amount of picks is enough from that far back, quality over quantity when it comes to draft picks

    • Jason Brown
      Jason Brown

      In this class, pick #24 is still very much a quality one, and the entirety of draft history says quantity > quality.

      I agree peni sewell 1 around and for the rest of the rounds in the draft war we need to knock it out on defense to help once again Dion Jones, Grady Jarrett,and my boy Foye. Tbh they doing it by they selves aggressively and need somebody aggressive and fast alike i promise this will be a super bowl contenders to redeem ourselves. Falcons Rise up this year man we still have faith.

    Justin Fields would fit perfectly in Atlanta and he'll be the #4 overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft. San Francisco will get Mac Jones at #3. The New York Jets will get Zach Wilson at #2 and The Jacksonville Jaguars will get Trevor Laurence at #1. The Atlanta Falcons will also get TE Kyle Pitts in the later round draft to compete with Hayden Hurst at the #1 starting Tightend position.

    • Jason Brown
      Jason Brown

      Pitts isn't falling out of the top ten picks, let alone out of the first round entirely. It's a nice fantasy you've constructed for yourself, but in *no* world is it going to happen.

  • Scott -O
    Scott -O

    Jets trade their 2021 1rd 23 overall pick 3rd 66 overall pick and 2022 1rd and a 2rd pick to the Falcons for the 4 overall pick and the Jets draft TE Pitts,OL Sewell or WR Chase🤷🏻‍♂️

  • Dylan Martino

    If I’m the falcons I’m only considered trading that pick to the WFT for chase young swap first round picks this year in their second round and third round picks this year a 1st next year in a second next year

    Dumb move draft Kyle Pitts at 4.

  • JMeez917

    You mean the team that has had 3 consecutive losing seasons with a healthy Matt Ryan led by the coach Arthur Smith that took Ryan Tynehill from a bust to an Average NFL QB still thinks they're one draft away from playoff contention. Not interested in the future beyond Matt Ryan, hmmm interesting.

  • ehiwe18

    Typical Falcon move, lets invest in a 36 year old quater by bring him more weapons so he can miss them in the in zone.

    Please Bronco nation we must stand pat. Moving up is not worth all that draft especially given our recent history when it comes to picking QBs. I can guarantee something special will fall into our laps at 9.

    • Dhikshith Gajulapalli
      Dhikshith Gajulapalli

      @Dimmerrishh Yeah, an amazing OC that decided to pass 3 times in a. row while in field goal range up 28-20 with 3 minutes left :/

    • Dimmerrishh

      @Dhikshith Gajulapalli It was an outlier though. Most teams don't even make the playoffs with that bad of a defense. Also they had an amazing OC and by far the best offense in the league. That stuff usually doesn't happen.

    • Dhikshith Gajulapalli

  • Joseph Winters

    Hear me out: Bears trade up(idc what we give up atm), draft Fields, fire Pace, hire Louis Riddick, keep Nagy, for the relationship w/LR and a chance to coach “his QB”

    • Joseph Winters
      Joseph Winters

      @Jason Brown I ain’t ya bud lol Nah but really though, I do see and agree with his issues but if they said they was giving him 1 more “prove it year” WITH Louis Riddick and a QB of their choice, I wouldn’t be mad.

      Nagy is 100% a massive part of the problem, bud.

  • MegaJoshX

    If they stay at 4, dont pick the 3rd or 4th best QB. Take the best TE, or OL, or defensive player at 4.

  • Ryan Wardman
    Ryan Wardman

    ATL should trade down to the 7th or 8th spot. Very high chance that Pitts can still fall to them (or of course pick up Parsons or Surtain) and also snag 1 or 2 more draft picks for the later rounds.

    • Slimkidd730

      It isn't a high chance IMO JErry Jones said he'll trade up for PItts. Miami can take PItts. DEtriot. I would just take PItts at 4

  • Keion Bias

    • Vinichi

      Dont need offense they need a qb or defense

  • Jordan Hampton
    Jordan Hampton

    They should stay there and get Kyle Pitts. Him with Julio and Calvin make them possible the most deadly receiving core in the NFL.

    • Slimkidd730

      @Brian Nelson Having 4 ins doesn't mean he can't get his WRs the ball. You're changing the goalpost now. First its he can't throw, then its he can't win. Its not Ryans fault, HENCE HIS NUMBERS, that he has a choke artist HC who is gone now. ATL lost like 3 games with a 99.9% winning chance and like 6 games losing 4 points or less. Individual stats carry weight though which destroys your statement. You said Ryan can't throw and you're literally wrong because his numbers say otherwise. So Trent Dilfer can throw to WRs well because Ravens won the SB as a team? lol

    • Brian Nelson
      Brian Nelson

      @Slimkidd730 yeah he number ls look good but we only Got 4 wins this season last I checked it’s about wins not Individual states

    • Slimkidd730

      @Brian Nelson Ryans numbers say otherwise

    • Brian Nelson
      Brian Nelson

      Yeah with a qb that can’t get them the ball

  • Jerry Mejias

      We will see about that this season

    • Jason Brown
      Jason Brown

      I don't know how you could possibly say that based on how well he played last season after being thrown into an awful situation with no real developmental time. I was no fan of Hurts's NFL prospects; his play last year quickly changed my opinion.

  • Brilliance Swift Football class of 2021

    As a die hard Falcons fan I have mixed feelings about just depends on how they play this out

    • Slimkidd730

      @ßýŇxPřøphəÞ But Pitts is a beast. He's to great to pass up. Look at the tape., Add PItts to this offense and its a wrap.

    If Falcons want defense, definitely trade down. If they want Sewell (like I do) stay where you are, he’s not falling past cincy

    • KangSan Kim
      KangSan Kim

      @Daniel Keith exactly, I don't get why they don't want Sewell, he's the best o line prospect in years. Instead, there's so much hype on Pitts when we already have a top 5 receiving corps in the league. I'm just praying they trade down at this point. Trading to 15 with the pats and getting jc Jackson and some early picks in the process would be great imo. Then our corners would be set, and we could go with pass rush or o line at 15, and take safeties and maybe a running back with our remaining picks.

    • Daniel Keith
      Daniel Keith

      @Breezy yeah which sucks as a Falcons fan, our o line has struggled for at least the past 3 years but we never try to fix it until it’s too late. Sewell could be a cornerstone for a decade and make Ryan’s last years much more fruitful

    • Breezy

      They obviously don’t want Sewell

    • Jason Brown
      Jason Brown

      @Batman Pop's If Tua Tagovialoa plays the same this upcoming season-a year removed from serious rehab after having the first real offseason of his career with what promises to be a respectable offense-as last year-with no developmental time, no WR1, and no rushing attack-then yes, there will be cause for concern. There is absolutely no reason to believe that is the most likely outcome, however; Tua showed more than enough in an adverse offensive situation to warrant faith.

    • Batman Pop's
      Batman Pop's

      @Jason Brown if he plays close to the same level as he did last year without any serious improvement, at least we have 2 first round picks for 2022 to replace him, so I'm happy no matter what now that I think about it 😁

    • Jason Brown

      I truly hope not, but everybody's intel seems to be pointing that way, and while I am very well aware of and enjoy the smokescreens that savvy teams will throw up this time of year, I can't see the advantage of pretending you're going to take a the lesser-rated of three quarterbacks; what do you think?

    • Breezy

      @DBA_ Luke nah there’s other QBs outside of those two, I promise. But my statement still stands. EDIT: I don’t even watch college football and I know there’s some decent QBs in this class outside of those two. 🤨
