    Falcons acquire No. 1 overall pick from Jaguars; Jaguars get No. 4, No. 35, 2022 No. 1, and Matt Ryan 
    Published: Mar 31, 2021 at 22:19 PM

        The Atlanta Falcons have traded up from the 4th overall pick to the first overall in a league-shaking trade with the Jacksonville Jaguars, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported late Wednesday evening. Jacksonville receives the 4th overall selection from Atlanta, the 35th overall selection, a 2022 first-round pick and former MVP QB Matt Ryan, per Rapoport. The Falcons are presumed to be selecting Clemson QB - Trevor Lawrence.
    The trade, which Atlanta announced late Wednesday, for the No. 1 overall pick can have massive ramifications on the outlook of the league at quarterback. NFL Network's Steve Wyche reported Friday that Falcons coach Arthur Smith told him Matt Ryan remained in the team's plans until a conversation with Ryan late in the day on Tuesday, which Rapoport added was heated and ended with a formal demand for a trade by Ryan and his agent.
    "We've spent plenty of time and digital space wringing our hands over the future of Ryan, which includes wondering if he'll be able to be healthy beyond 2021 at his age," said Terry Fontenot, Atlanta's new GM. In conversation about his future health, Ryan is said to have lost his temper, pointing to an overall exemplary bill of health for the entirety of his career. People close to the situation, who would prefer not to be named, claim that "the new regime lost Ryan when they questioned his ability to stay healthy when he has proven that for more than a decade." 
    Details on this story are still coming to light, but it has been confirmed by league sources that the trade has been submitted for league approval. We will keep you posted as we learn more.

    I would love it. We need a vet in the middle. Then we can draft a LG to compete with Gono. Henn van battle Andrews or be the backup. Make the OL as a whole better

    You can't look back after all is said and done and say that guy should have been drafted. You can look at the entire history of the franchise and build a team of solid hall of famers. You have no idea how a player is going to turn out on draft day.

    This is not a knock on EB, it is a statement about our owner and front office.  
    The Falcons are pendulums.  They over compensate for perceived shortcomings.  
    EB may very well be the best candidate, but Arthur sure likes to over-correct.

    blackredfellow reacted to JDaveG in The Truth about HC, GM, draft position no. 4 and QB vs. other needs   
    One other thing -- Kyle Shanahan came here and took our no. 3 overall pick to a Super Bowl he should have won.  Then he went to San Francisco, and instead of drafting a QB, he built his team in the trenches and specifically on defense and went out and traded a 2nd round pick for his QB.  Who he then took to the Super Bowl, and almost won that one too.
    Great coaches get it done.  They don't rely on top 5 picks to do it.  And when they have them, like Shanahan did 2 of his years there, they pick guys like Nick Bosa and Soloman Thomas over, notably, Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson (in the latter case).  Shanahan had the benefit of stockpiled picks in San Francisco.  Of the 6 first round picks he's made (in 4 years), he took a DE, a LB, an OT, a DE, a DT and a WR (at 25 overall).

    Im just going to love when the same sad complaining will still be happening when Ryan is gone because If he was on a different team he would be praised. Not in this city still holding on to that last hope of Vick suiting up again for Atlanta. Idiot fans blame Ryan for everything when we lose. When the defense failing to do their jobs and helping him out! DO YOU WATCH THE GAMES??
