A QB? Kyle Pitts? Penei Sewell? A trade? Atlanta Falcons have options at No. 4


Recommended Posts

It’s starting to play out a little bit clearer now. For months, Jacksonville has been locked in during the draft. It’s appeared as if the New York Jets have been as well. Then, San Francisco traded all the way up to No. 3 and you don’t do that unless there’s a player you know you badly want.

All of which sets up very interestingly for the Atlanta Falcons. Not necessarily good. Definitely not bad. Just…interesting, because it leaves new general manager Terry Fontenot and new head coach Arthur Smith with options in their first Falcons draft.

Working on the premise San Francisco or the Jets don’t pull a stunner, the top three picks should go quarterback-quarterback-quarterback, with Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson expected to be two of those players.

The intrigue begins at No. 4. There are a few different ways for the Falcons to go.

Draft a quarterback

As a general manager and coach, you don’t want to be perennially picking in the Top 5. If you are, you likely aren’t going to have your job for very long. So while Atlanta is here, investing in a quarterback would be one very obvious way to go.

How Atlanta handles this could depend on what its board looks like. If a quarterback the team views in the Top 5 is available -- and at least of Trey Lance, Justin Fields and Mac Jones should be available -- then it makes sense to pick the signal-caller.

There are wrinkles here, though. Barring an injury to Matt Ryan, a quarterback would not play in 2021. It would be highly unlikely the quarterback would play in 2022, either, although according to Roster Management System, Atlanta would save $23.75 million in cap space if he were to be a designated post-June 1 cut (while still carrying $24,921,500 in dead money).

So if Atlanta views the soon-to-be-36-year-old Ryan as a player to build around for the next three years, then a quarterback wouldn’t make sense because almost half of the player’s rookie contract will be sitting behind Ryan.

There are two reasons to take a quarterback here: Your plan is to move on from Ryan somewhere in the near future after 2021 or you believe the player is so transformative he’s your quarterback for the next decade-plus post-Ryan. If neither one of those things are true, better to get an elite talent at another position and draft a quarterback later on you can potentially develop.

Atlanta currently has one quarterback on the roster -- Ryan -- so the Falcons need someone there. Who it is could determine so much about the short- and long-term future of the franchise. It’s the first truly big decision for Fontenot and Smith and one that could define their early tenures.

Take Oregon offensive lineman Penei Sewell

The question here might be how the Falcons view Sewell. He’s 6-foot-6, 325 pounds and has his experience at tackle, so that would be the more sensible spot. While it would be a surprise to see him at guard -- the Falcons have Jake Matthews and Kaleb McGary at tackle already, so guard could be the short-term play. To take a player you view as a long-term guard at No. 4 would be a stretch -- the last guard to go in the Top 10 was Quenton Nelson to Indianapolis in 2018 -- but if the long-term play would be for Sewell to be a tackle, he would be worth the investment.

McGary is under contract through 2022 and Matthews through 2023 so Sewell could be inside for a year before moving outside since neither player has guaranteed money left on their deals should Atlanta go this route. And taking a tackle in the Top 5 is not unheard of -- the Giants did so last year at No. 4 with Andrew Thomas.

But Sewell will upgrade the offensive line if Atlanta picks him and could offer a blindside protector for the next decade for whoever is playing quarterback for the Falcons. It won’t be an exciting pick, but it might be a safe one with a high floor and high ceiling. Sewell is an elite prospect.

Draft Florida TE Kyle Pitts

It might seem high to take a tight end at No. 4 -- it hasn’t been done in the Super Bowl era. Just twice has a tight end gone in the Top 5: Hall of Famer Mike Ditka in 1961 and four-time Pro Bowler Riley Odoms in 1972. Both went fifth.

That said, Pitts is a different type of player and the NFL has evolved offensively to where tight ends are becoming more valuable by the year in offenses. The 6-foot-6, 245-pound Pitts ran an unofficial 4.44-second 40-yard dash time, jumped 33½ inches in the vertical and had 22 bench press repetitions at Florida’s pro day. He’s not what a tight end used to be. He is what a tight end could end up being in the future.

“He’s a different bird than what a traditional tight end has been,” said Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell, a former NFL tight end. “Or certainly has been when I played.”

He’s young, too, which theoretically means more room for growth in the future. He won’t turn 21 until October and increased his production every year at Florida (although he had fewer receptions in a COVID-altered 2020 season). In less than three full seasons, he became Florida’s all-time leader for receiving yards by a tight end (1,492) and second in receptions (100).

Tight end is a difficult position to transition to from college to the NFL, even for first round, Top 10, picks. But Atlanta’s roster construction can help here, too. Hayden Hurst is in the last year of his contract (although Atlanta could pick up his fifth-year option) and Lee Smith is on a one-year deal. At receiver, Calvin Ridley is in a contract year (although, like Hurst, Atlanta has a fifth-year option) and Julio Jones is under contract until 2023.

But putting Pitts in a pass-catching corps with Jones, Ridley and Hurst could be a nightmare for opposing defenses for the next two seasons, at least.

Trade down

This goes back to the quarterback. If there are teams -- Carolina, Denver, New England and Washington are candidates -- who desperately want one of the remaining quarterbacks, Fontenot could move off of the pick and trade down to pick up more future draft capital. You need a willing trade partner in order to pull this off, but Atlanta might actually have some options.

Considering the state of the roster, this would not be the worst move if he were able to pull it off. Trading back also opens up a more realistic option of taking a defensive player -- linebacker Micah Parsons could be available at Nos. 8 or 9, for example, and defensive lineman Kwity Paye and linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah could be available later than that. Corners Caleb Farley and Patrick Surtain II could end up in that mix, too, depending where Atlanta moved down to. And other players could be involved here, too, as the middle of Round 1 is where the top defenders might start coming off the board.

Atlanta has 20 players under contract for 2022, although that number could go up if Hurst and Ridley receive their fifth-year options, and the defense will need new, young talent. While defensive players aren’t the elite of the elite in this year’s draft, there are talented playmakers available and if Fontenot can use No. 4 as a way to get more picks to bolster the long-term building of the roster, it might be the best play for Atlanta to make if it isn’t in love with a quarterback.

All the TATF Tankers should get a standing ovation for sticking to their guns and willing this team to stagger on to the finish line 4-12. Without you, the persecuted, the unloved, the butt of countless tanker jokes, our new HC and GM would be picking among the dregs of the draft instead of the nuggets.

Their options would not include any of the top 4 QB's, nor that hot TE Pitts, not even Mac Jones as a consolation prize. Instead, every player and every juicy scenario that can be dreamed up by TATF or the sports pundits is in play. Us fans are getting an extra Christmas day! 

So, thanks to the Tankers ~ all US Tankers. We have saved the Falcons' bacon with this incredible achievement! CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!

Those are the four main options. Drafting Chase could be a fifth. They mirror the five TATF camps as well, so you best believe there will be some unhappy campers on this board come April 29th.

Whatever way you look at it, we are in a good place.

Some thoughts....   we have Hurst and the TE we traded for, plus Graham.  So the top three spots appear to be set.   Sure we could end up with Pitts, or Chase, but I thought the idea was to run the ball more.   I don't see how taking a receiving option at 4 helps us do that.

Sewell helps address a dire need, and helps establish the run game we are looking for, and would help Ryan stay upright.   This team will -probably- not be able to substantially improve the O line in FA, so the draft is the only way to go.

McKay says the expectations are to win, now.    Fontenot's stated aim to draft BPA -seems- to contradict that somewhat.   It could be Fontenot goes more for need, -now-.... OL, S, RB, backup QB... then resumes his BPA philosophy later.

Miami gave up 12 and another 1st to get the 6th pick.   Meaning, Atlanta (and Cincy) must have turned Miami's offer down.  Whatever, I doubt we see a trade until draft day, if then.

Of the 29 roster players we ended up with after cuts, eight of those are FAs next offseason, including Hurst and Ridley, Gono Gage and Oluokun.   Most our signings are 1-yr deals... this team needs numbers in the worst way.

The more I see scenarios.. Penei would be the BPA and fill a Need.. I think Pitts, Chase and Penei are right there in talent.. so you turn to see our needs and Penei is by far our biggest need..

Plus if Sewell looks  like he can play LT, that would make Matthews and hi large contract, expendable next year.  Well, maybe.   Trading Matthews next offseason  -might- help us keep Ridley, Hurst,  Oluokun,  Gono.....

JMHO, but you can't even remotely compare Sewell to Chase and Pitts and maybe not even Smith. Right now, Sewell is almost a purely athletic lineman who needs improvement in most technical areas. His tape has lots of bad line play that he is able to overcome because of the lack of talent he is going against, but he can't do that at the next level as consistently as he did in college.

I don't think we're set at TE. And if we are, Hurst could be traded if we selected Pitts. He's a bit overrated as is, and Graham would be a camp body if we had Pitts. Graham isn't that spectacular. Did he get any guaranteed money when we re-signed him? It was a position that needed addressed in FA. TF did exactly what he said by filling needs with FA. He did the same at RB, S, and OLB/Edge. (and I don't think he's finished with FA acquisitions)

I don't think anyone on the staff has said the idea is to run the ball more. AS said it is to be more balanced, and "that doesn't mean run the ball more." He will use the talent we have to its strength. If we have a healthy JJ, Hurst, Chase/Pitts, Rid and Gage, we might not draft a RB until the late rounds (or ever run the ball 🤣). Davis and Ito might be all we need. Obviously that's a little exaggeration - of course we'll run the ball, but I don't see us being Titans 2.0. I don't think AS and our staff want to be the Titans 2.0. 

I don't think we can assume Atlanta or Cinci turned down Miami. Miami doesn't need pick 4 or 5 to get Pitts, Chase or Smith. They only need one of those guys and at pick 6 at least one of them is assured to still be available. They gave up one of the picks they received in the SF trade, still have the other picks they fleeced, and get one of their targeted players.  Tua gets someone to throw to. I don't think they ever called Atl or Cinci.

Lots and lots of assumptions in here brotha. Let's not read too much into what has been said.

Sewell also played RT in the analysis video that was on here somewhere. He'd be an upgrade over McGary.

He will be good. Probably. But I think he is overhyped, especially if he's playing out of position. And yes, Pitts will be a star.

Penei would be a star also... so will chase.. so its just a matter of which player and position you like most... that is it... just our opinions, we cannot have facts as of right now...

I'm just not sold on Sewell even being the best OL in the first round. He has lots of upside, no doubt, but I'm not ready to bite yet.

Pitts isn’t unknown. Sewell is very inexperienced. I personally think Sewell will be what Greg Robinson couldn’t be in the NFL. But it’s a risky pick. 

If I remember correctly Robinson went from a 2nd rounder to the 2nd overall pick in a couple of months after the College season.. but he was never a sure fire top 10 pick... Sewell could be inexperienced but he did play good ball, the celling of Penei could be HOF and the floor maybe a top 10 guard.. its risky yes it it... so is Pitts every TE hype out in the draft process has never live up to the expectation.. is Pitts really a can miss prospect?? I really don't know... if you ask me the safest would be Chase to become a really good player... but Penei and pitts cellings are really hard to pass..

yeah I get you ... as of last week my safest choice at 4 was Chase... but I really don't think we are taking him.. its between Pitts and Sewell... im going with Sewell cause he can help us run the ball as AS wants in his O....

I think the one thing that bothers me about Sewell is how he blocks. He grabs the outside of the shoulder pads almost every time. It's really ugly. And he think until he changes that, he's going to see a lot of holdings calls. It looks like holding to me every time he blocks someone like that.

Sewell is inexperienced and 19 years. Right now he showed flashes of domination but he is a freak athlete. Chase and Pitts have production in college. Sewell can’t use athleticism in NFL, he would need experience and consistent technique. I like Sewell but he is the biggest boom or bust pick on top of the draft. 
Greg Robinson was athletic freak who showed flashes of domination. The biggest difference I see between Robinson and Sewell is the attitude.

I think one of those OC/OG types will be better for us in the 3rd. Or if I did pick Sewell, he would probably replace McGary day 1.

It goes back to lack of experience. A good OL coach should help him along with playing experience. He is dominant but raw.

I agree, but that just looks like a lot of work to me to get him to change that technique.

One thing I love about him is how he fakes a punch to the DE/DT. He throws a half punch and when the defensive guy goes for his punch arm, he pulls it back and then smacks the defender's arm to throw his man totally off balance. That's some pretty sneaky shyte right there, and I had never seen that before until I watched Sewell. That's a beautiful move, and he was able to spin guys totally around with it.

With the right attitude and as you say he is a freak athlete... I would be really comfortable with him... remember Julio was a freak but had some drop issues.. his attitude and wanting to be the best is what help him become a HOF... we have Matthews also he is a profesional football player sewell can learn from him... I would be fine with penei to be honest or pitts..
