  • They need to draft a replacement for Matt Ryan.

  • Please god, have the Packers trade up to draft Mac Jones. The drama.....

  • Damnit no man take Pitts

  • Pitts measures better then Kelsey. As a matter of fact Pitts measurables are closer to Julio then Kelsey. Pitts is the best TE to ever come out of college. I hope he ends up in a Falcons uniform.

  • Pats will move up to fourth & pick Justin Fields. Bengals will pick OT Suwell. Dolphons will get TE Pitts.

  • I still can't believe 49era moved up to 3 just for Mac Jones...

  • So they’re sticking with Matt? Hahahah

  • Draft Pitts Fck everything else

  • Atlanta can't stop anybody. If I were Atlanta, I would swap picks with Denver if they want the QB, then take the best defensive player available at #9. Farley, Parsons or Jaelen Phillips.

  • we should be drafting Matt Ryan successor as well before we be like these other teams tryna trade up just for a QB

  • They should go for pitts

  • This Trey Lance stuff is insanity! Wait for Kellen Mond?

  • Atlanta falcons Justin Fields

  • Ok I’m not a falcon fan but what if they trade down with the Broncos. The Broncos get a qb and falcons can still get the best corner they don’t need anymore offense they can put up points but need to stop blowing leads.

  • Trade Matt Ryan for a 2 n 3 rd pick draft Justin fields or trey lance 4 pick

    • Bru these Falcons Fans in ATL are delusional they still think 36 year old QB going work his magic like 2016 and win super bowl, when the past 3 year they have been losing, i have said the same thing Trade Matt Ryan and get some draft picks and draft one of Stud QB in this year draft, fans are so crazy about Matt Ryan if you even sneez his name on being trade they will call you every bad name from dictionary.

  • Patriots: 4th overall pick Falcons: 15th overall pick, 46th pick, 2022 second and fourth, and JC Jackson

    • @Darian Milliken I mean I’m pretty sure the patriots have a second round tender on Jackson, and the falcons are in desperate need for secondary. I wouldn’t mind a first next year instead of Jackson cuz that means we don’t have to give up a second rounder, but I think this trade would be good for both teams 🤷‍♂️

    • Everything is correct expect for the Jackson part. Also Atlanta gets next years first as well. It would have to be a high draft pick return.

  • Give it to the Saints ⚜️

  • Stop....don't do it Falcons! Please take the best player and don't try to be too cute like the ATL Hawks GM trading generational talent Luka Doncic to Dallas for a really really good PG in Trae Young. Don't be dumb ATL Falcons and draft the best player at 4 in Kyle Pitts

  • The Ravens should trade up to get Kyle Pitts. Pleeaase, EDC, let's do it!!

  • no god please no (falcons fan)

  • If we trade from 4 to 24 or even 20 I won’t watch the Falcons this season, I take trading back to 9 but not to the 20’s. No amount of picks is enough from that far back, quality over quantity when it comes to draft picks

    • In this class, pick #24 is still very much a quality one, and the entirety of draft history says quantity > quality.

  • i am open to trading a former bikini-model wife to the highest bidder ...

  • If I’m Matt Ryan, I’d take a pay cut and restructure contract.


    • I agree peni sewell 1 around and for the rest of the rounds in the draft war we need to knock it out on defense to help once again Dion Jones, Grady Jarrett,and my boy Foye. Tbh they doing it by they selves aggressively and need somebody aggressive and fast alike i promise this will be a super bowl contenders to redeem ourselves. Falcons Rise up this year man we still have faith.

  • The chief tuba marginally grab because guilty arthroscopically empty over a inexpensive pantyhose. enchanted, psychedelic math

  • Falcons need Justin Fields.😎

  • If the ravens could find anyway to pull off the 4rh pick and gets like a devonta smith

  • Cowboys trade to pick up Pitt I’m willing to bet 100.000 k

  • Fields to falcons no doubt!

  • Steelers are not moving 20 spots. If they did I want PITTS!

  • We need defense, god please keep the pick falcons

  • Atlanta needs to draft special teams players after that Cowboys game in the early season.

  • Ryan Pace is probably creaming his pants right now

  • Broncos, Patriots, Vikings, Bears

  • I have a funny feeling the falcons are going to screw up they're draft pick. 🙄 Sheesh

  • Not all QBs are going I think its Pitts. Joey knows football 🏈

  • Get picks for that 4 pick

  • 100% agree with Joey Galloway


  • Justin Fields would fit perfectly in Atlanta and he'll be the #4 overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft. San Francisco will get Mac Jones at #3. The New York Jets will get Zach Wilson at #2 and The Jacksonville Jaguars will get Trevor Laurence at #1. The Atlanta Falcons will also get TE Kyle Pitts in the later round draft to compete with Hayden Hurst at the #1 starting Tightend position.

    • Pitts isn't falling out of the top ten picks, let alone out of the first round entirely. It's a nice fantasy you've constructed for yourself, but in *no* world is it going to happen.

  • Jets trade their 2021 1rd 23 overall pick 3rd 66 overall pick and 2022 1rd and a 2rd pick to the Falcons for the 4 overall pick and the Jets draft TE Pitts,OL Sewell or WR Chase🤷🏻‍♂️

  • If I’m the falcons I’m only considered trading that pick to the WFT for chase young swap first round picks this year in their second round and third round picks this year a 1st next year in a second next year

  • My Washington football team needs to trade up and get a Kyle pitts out of Florida and secure our division title

  • This why the falcons organization ain’t winning nothing. You have the best TE prospect to ever live in passing up on him to take a bogus CB in some bogus pass rusher 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️ makes no sense ATL

  • The falcons are the dumbest franchise in the world. Matt Ryan is not future get Justin Fields

  • Atlanta need a new qb

  • baseball? no basketball? like, at all?

  • Dumb move draft Kyle Pitts at 4.

  • You mean the team that has had 3 consecutive losing seasons with a healthy Matt Ryan led by the coach Arthur Smith that took Ryan Tynehill from a bust to an Average NFL QB still thinks they're one draft away from playoff contention. Not interested in the future beyond Matt Ryan, hmmm interesting.

  • Typical Falcon move, lets invest in a 36 year old quater by bring him more weapons so he can miss them in the in zone.

  • Please Bronco nation we must stand pat. Moving up is not worth all that draft especially given our recent history when it comes to picking QBs. I can guarantee something special will fall into our laps at 9.

  • Pittsburgh needs to draft Kellen Mond or Kyle Trask

  • If Trevor Lawrence isn't a first ballot HOF'er when his career is over, he will be called the biggest hype train bust of all time right next to Ryan Leaf lol

  • take Pitts Falcons

  • The Patriots need to

  • I need my falcons to get the best defensive player in this draft

  • If the falcons pick pitts. We will redeem ourselves for years to come. Rise Up!

    • @DimmerrishhOh yeah I forgot another example could be the 2009 who had the 25th ranked defense.

    • @Dimmerrishh Yeah, an amazing OC that decided to pass 3 times in a. row while in field goal range up 28-20 with 3 minutes left :/

    • @Dhikshith Gajulapalli It was an outlier though. Most teams don't even make the playoffs with that bad of a defense. Also they had an amazing OC and by far the best offense in the league. That stuff usually doesn't happen.

    • @Dimmerrishh In 2016 they had the 27th ranked defense and made the super bowl.

    • 🤣🤣

  • I wish tennessee could go get it. And draft pitts

  • If the falcons don’t take fields or pitts or penei.... they are the worst drafting team this year

  • My Chicago Bears need to trade up to this 4th pick.

  • leave it to the Falcons to mess this up

  • 212th comment rise up ATL fans

  • ATL should trade down for picks. That defensive and offensive line need rebuilding

  • Please Ryan Pace 🙏 Go get Justin fields before the pats jump up

  • GIANTS!!!!! GOT GET FIELDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (I know there's no chance its going to happen, its just my wish).

  • Eagles

  • Atlanta should draft Fields with no. 4 or trade out for a haul of quality picks & draft Kyle Trask or Sam Ehlinger in rounds 3-5.

  • Hear me out: Bears trade up(idc what we give up atm), draft Fields, fire Pace, hire Louis Riddick, keep Nagy, for the relationship w/LR and a chance to coach “his QB”

    • @Jason Brown I ain’t ya bud lol Nah but really though, I do see and agree with his issues but if they said they was giving him 1 more “prove it year” WITH Louis Riddick and a QB of their choice, I wouldn’t be mad.

    • Nagy is 100% a massive part of the problem, bud.


  • Patriots need the trade

  • If they stay at 4, dont pick the 3rd or 4th best QB. Take the best TE, or OL, or defensive player at 4.

  • ATL should trade down to the 7th or 8th spot. Very high chance that Pitts can still fall to them (or of course pick up Parsons or Surtain) and also snag 1 or 2 more draft picks for the later rounds.

    • It isn't a high chance IMO JErry Jones said he'll trade up for PItts. Miami can take PItts. DEtriot. I would just take PItts at 4

  • Even though the falcons need defense, they should get Kyle Pitts

  • Ravens should try and trade up to take a WR

  • Dallas plz move to number #4 and grab Penei Sewell

  • Chargers for sewell

  • Doesn’t Pittsburgh have Haskins?

  • Atlanta need to stay at no.4 and take pitts don’t be stupid 🤦🏾‍♂️

    • If they draft pitts that would be stupid....y’all need defense unless your just gonna waste mat and julios years winning nothing

    • Dont need offense they need a qb or defense

  • They should stay there and get Kyle Pitts. Him with Julio and Calvin make them possible the most deadly receiving core in the NFL.

    • @Brian Nelson Having 4 ins doesn't mean he can't get his WRs the ball. You're changing the goalpost now. First its he can't throw, then its he can't win. Its not Ryans fault, HENCE HIS NUMBERS, that he has a choke artist HC who is gone now. ATL lost like 3 games with a 99.9% winning chance and like 6 games losing 4 points or less. Individual stats carry weight though which destroys your statement. You said Ryan can't throw and you're literally wrong because his numbers say otherwise. So Trent Dilfer can throw to WRs well because Ravens won the SB as a team? lol

    • @Slimkidd730 yeah he number ls look good but we only Got 4 wins this season last I checked it’s about wins not Individual states

    • @Brian Nelson Ryans numbers say otherwise

    • Yeah with a qb that can’t get them the ball

  • The eagles need to make this move. Jalen Hurts isn’t the answer.

    • We will see about that this season

    • I don't know how you could possibly say that based on how well he played last season after being thrown into an awful situation with no real developmental time. I was no fan of Hurts's NFL prospects; his play last year quickly changed my opinion.

  • I don’t think it will make sense for someone to trade up with them for a QB tell draft day but wouldn’t be surprised if the Chargers made the move for one of the two tackles

  • Tank away the season then move the pick ?😐

  • 4th pick to Houston for Deshaun? Lol jk he ain't going nowhere this year.

  • As a die hard Falcons fan I have mixed feelings about just depends on how they play this out

    • @ßýŇxPřøphəÞ But Pitts is a beast. He's to great to pass up. Look at the tape., Add PItts to this offense and its a wrap.

    • @Samuel Schrock r u 5 or sum....

    • 28-3

    • @KGSG Jligerbomb good luck to yall brother things looking rough over there

    • @ßýŇxPřøphəÞ thank you at least someone agrees we shouldn't waste our picks

  • kid gets it on both sides of the ball multiple positions multiple leagues!!

  • Nfl is getting gayer by the day.


  • If Falcons want defense, definitely trade down. If they want Sewell (like I do) stay where you are, he’s not falling past cincy

    • @Daniel Keith exactly, I don't get why they don't want Sewell, he's the best o line prospect in years. Instead, there's so much hype on Pitts when we already have a top 5 receiving corps in the league. I'm just praying they trade down at this point. Trading to 15 with the pats and getting jc Jackson and some early picks in the process would be great imo. Then our corners would be set, and we could go with pass rush or o line at 15, and take safeties and maybe a running back with our remaining picks.

    • @Breezy yeah which sucks as a Falcons fan, our o line has struggled for at least the past 3 years but we never try to fix it until it’s too late. Sewell could be a cornerstone for a decade and make Ryan’s last years much more fruitful

    • They obviously don’t want Sewell

  • Patriots gonna get that 4th pick 🤫

  • Bears PLEASE!!!!!!!!!! 🙏🏾

  • Mattie Ice LETS GOOOOO

  • Falcons need to move on from Ryan or Julio. They’re wasting Julios talent

    • I agree brother..wasted a lot of talent. A super offense with a below average Qb

  • Please don't let it be the Patriots we are being held back by Tua and if the Bills Patriots and Jets all hit on QB we are doomed for years to come, because we can't seem to draft the right QB no more sense Dan The Man 😢

    • @Batman Pop's If Tua Tagovialoa plays the same this upcoming season-a year removed from serious rehab after having the first real offseason of his career with what promises to be a respectable offense-as last year-with no developmental time, no WR1, and no rushing attack-then yes, there will be cause for concern. There is absolutely no reason to believe that is the most likely outcome, however; Tua showed more than enough in an adverse offensive situation to warrant faith.

    • @Jason Brown if he plays close to the same level as he did last year without any serious improvement, at least we have 2 first round picks for 2022 to replace him, so I'm happy no matter what now that I think about it 😁

    • @Batman Pop's Huh. Almost like the word "future" is pretty important in that sentence. 🥴🥴🥴

    • @Jason Brown He definitely didn't play like anything even close to a star like at all LOL, our Defense and spacial teams carried him the whole way to the max 🤷🏾‍♂️

    • Tua is a future star and showed as much this season without any real developmental time or offensive weapons. Relax.

  • The 49ers aren’t going to take Mac Jones lmao

    • 🎯🎯🎯

    • @Jason Brown where did this intel come from?? because the 49ers don’t leak info

    • I truly hope not, but everybody's intel seems to be pointing that way, and while I am very well aware of and enjoy the smokescreens that savvy teams will throw up this time of year, I can't see the advantage of pretending you're going to take a the lesser-rated of three quarterbacks; what do you think?

  • Falcons have a golden pick. Not often 3 qbs go first. They basically get the best non qb

    • That's why Qbs are coming off the board so fast

    • Facts that's why I'm saying they better grab Pitts

    • But the thing is that there is no Von Miller or Myles Garrett level talent this year that's worth picking at 4 for defense.

    • That's what I'm thinking. Hopefully they make the best of it.

    • Nice joke

  • As a falcons fan, I’d rather draft our QB of the future right now and let him sit behind Matt Ryan for a year or two while Ryan still has some trade value. We’ll see

    • @DBA_ Luke nah there’s other QBs outside of those two, I promise. But my statement still stands. EDIT: I don’t even watch college football and I know there’s some decent QBs in this class outside of those two. 🤨

    • @Breezy facts ppl don’t understand this qb draft class is bad tbh outside of Wilson and Lawerence next year will be much better

    • @Breezy like fr lmao he just wasting Ryan and Julios time doing that

    • You can find a QB in another draft

  • Chicago possibly but with Ryan Pace nah

  • The Falcons better keep that 4th pick

  • Highly disappointed in the ATL. You got Fields right in your grasp and you throwing the future away. All of the ATL fan base wants this. I’m done ✅

    • No, all the falcons fabnse does not want to miss out on Pitts and have a QB sit for2 years when you alreydy have a QB. Take PItts and keep it moving. Don't need a QB. You can always take a QB in future drafts. Julio, Ridley, and PItts and its a wrap.
