If the Falcons front office was looking for a draft class to save their jobs, the 2019 class is likely not going to provide that for them.
And that’s not to say it was a bad draft, either. It’s just the immediate pay-off won’t be felt in year one from the majority of the players.
But for a staff entering the 2019 season on the hot seat, they may not have that kind of time to see their work through. So is there any reason to feel good about this incoming class?

The Atlanta Falcons made it clear last night that they weren’t satisfied with their offensive line even after recent investments in the unit during free agency. Both Dan Quinn and Thomas Dimitroff stated in their press conference that they entertained offers to move up, but ultimately decided to stay put and select former Boston College guard Chris Lindstrom.
Then, after watching Cody Ford and Jawaan Taylor fall towards the end of the first, the Falcons surprised us all by trading their second (45th) and third-round (79th) picks to Los Angeles for the Rams’ 31st (and 203rd pick) to select Kaleb McGary, the athletic right tackle from Washington.
