The player grade that I would disagree with the most is the 47.4 grade for Kendall Sheffield. It appeared to me that Sheffield played a good bit better than his indicated PFF grade.

PFF grades for DB's put a lot of weight on missed tackles and penalties so it's possible Sheffield could be graded much higher in coverage than this would indicate but is getting dragged down for some other reason.

Presuming that we re-sign Hooper, we should look into running more twins sets with Jaeden Graham. With Ridley, Julio, and those two, we can pass from that formation, but it would also help us block more in the running game.

You mean 2 TE sets? Sorry it’s hard for me to turn off my football lingo. Especially when I’m trying to understand what you’re saying so I can get the picture. If I’m reading this right you’re saying 2 TE sets with Julio and Ridley out wide? Or are you saying 2 TE sets with Julio and Ridley twins to one side. Cause when you say twins it automatically makes me think twin wr’s to one side.

Two WR/two TE sets with Julio and Ridley split out wide on both sides, sorry. I mean, we could put them on one side occasionally to mix things up, but that's just a wrinkle. It's like those old school Indy offenses with Marcus Pollard and Dallas Clark. When you've got two TEs who can catch and block, you should keep them both on the field, especially when you can't get push in the running game otherwise.

Not gonna happen too often with Dirk here.  We passed from 2 tight end / 2 WR sets only 12% of the time this year, rushed only 21%.  Even though 1-2 personnel gave us the best success rate running the ball and second best passing, they weren’t used near enough.

I think that Hooper's re-signing should now be the Falcons top priority.  I liked what I saw from Jaeden Graham this season; it appears that he has some good potential.  Mixing in some two Tight End sets, especially with two TEs who can catch the ball, should help the Falcons offensive diversity going forward.

Ok gotcha. Yea that would be awesome. And had to stop. We ran looks like that will Kyle in 2016. It killed Seattle when we went up there that year.

Most of the grades make sense. The hope is Kaleb rebounds after a rough “thrown in the fire” trying to pass block 70% of the time; and for a long time at that, with drops back a lot Koetter. At his worst, Kaleb is serviceable.

Get a run game, better play designs, and Kaleb himself improving? Not worried. Seen his guards pre-Lindstrom?

Notes:

Prioritize Hooper.

LOL @ keeping Vondre

 Beasley is a pass rush specialist; that’s it. Don’t pay him $10M+ like UFA gonna push him to.

Pay Hoop and draft front 7. Tough cuts looming but hopefully no surprises.

I thought Zaccheaus in his limited snaps looked much better than Christian Blake, who showed very little in his 339 total offensive snaps for the year.  I wish that Zac had been given a lot more of the WR snaps that went to Blake.

I also would have like to seen more offensive snaps from Gono at OG.  I know Gono played some at Right OG, but I don't think he got any snaps at Left OG.  I would have rather seen what Gono could have done at Left OG, rather than Schweitzer, down the stretch.

Wreh-Wilson over a 60 rating is pretty dang good considering he’s our 4th CB. He allowed a few plays, but for the most part he was strong to end the year. Have liked him here as a depth guy ever since we signed, hopefully we can keep him around. 

Hopefully we can re-sign Wreh-Wilson at vet minimum again, but his recent play might have upped his asking price for next season

Except Hoop can't block worth a dam. His run blocking grade is in the 50s. Graham and Stocker are in the 70s.

Senate didnt even get a grade.  can someone explain why he never saw the field? 

Technically, Senat did get a 2019 grade of 57.8 from PFF. However since Senat only had a total of 20 defensive snaps for all of 2019, I chose not to include him in the player listing and grades in the OP.  For the 2018 season, Senat had 371 defensive snaps (34% of the total defensive snaps) and had a very respectful PFF grade of  71.1 for his rookie year.  Atlanta did sign NT Tyeler Davison for the 2019 season, which cut into Senat's snaps.  However, I wouldn't have thought that Davison's signing would have virtually eliminated all of Senat's playing time.

I need to know what league average is.

I don't think that average PFF grades are available off the general internet. If one had a paid premium PFF subscription, which I do not, that type of information might be available.  It would be good to know the overall average PFF grade, as well as, PFF average grades for each NFL position.
