Falcons could field an offense with 11 first-round draft picks

The Falcons signed former first-round draft pick Laquon Treadwell over the weekend, and that gives them an opportunity to do something unprecedented: Put 11 former first-round picks on the field together.

Atlanta’s offense now has 11 first rounders who could play simultaneously. A lineup the Falcons could realistically field during a game this season looks like this:

Quarterback: Matt Ryan
Running back: Todd Gurley
Wide receivers: Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, Laquon Treadwell
Tight end: Hayden Hurst
Tackles: Jake Matthews, James Carpenter
Guards: Chris Lindstrom, Kaleb McGary
Center: Alex Mack

Whether the Falcons actually line up with that 11 remains to be seen, but no team has ever put together a starting offense with 11 former first-round picks. This year’s Falcons could be the first.
