The first day of the NFL Draft is in the books, and we’re on to the second for the Atlanta Falcons. The team currently has only one pick on the draft’s second day, having surrendered their third to move up and get Takkarist McKinley, who will hopefully boost their pass rush considerably once he gets up to speed.
Look for Atlanta to focus on their core needs with that second round pick—unless they trade down—and get after a safety, guard, or perhaps another lineman. We’ll know soon enough, so buckle up.
We’ll be on to the second round formally in just an hour. Join us and discuss!
