There are 16 choices.

Over the weekend, I asked all of you to nominate your choices for the best draft picks in Atlanta Falcons history. You delivered, even if half your answers were predictably sarcastic.

The net result is that we have 16 players (10 on offense, 6 on defense) who will be in the running for our greatest franchise draft pick ever. There’s the usual suspects, a couple of unorthodox choices, and some legitimate franchise legends in the mix, so on balance I’d say you all did well.

We have our field of sixteen now, and you’ll find it below.
