2020 Falcons NFL Draft prospect interest tracker

It’s time for our annual prospect interest tracker here at The Falcoholic! Here, we’ll pull from a variety of sources to give you a sense of conversations, casual meetings, and official pre-draft meetings the Falcons are having with draft-eligible players, and we’ll do our best to keep this list up-to-date.

I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the usual caveats here. The Falcons showing interest via official visits, conversations, and more doesn’t track very strongly with who they actually end up picking, as players like Jordan Miller a year ago were surprised when they got the call from Atlanta. This is just an indication of players the Falcons have shown some level of interest in, which is good information to have but not necessarily indicative that you should freak out about your favorite or least favorite player joining the team.

As we add to this, we’ll bold formal meetings and italicize new editions to the list. If you spot a name you know the Falcons have spoken with but isn’t here—or you become aware of one as time goes on—please let us know!

Enjoy!
