Happy Wednesday, Falcoholics! Thank you for joining us. We know you have lots of friends that are willing to overlook your neckbeard and join you for a rousing game of Magic: The Gathering in your mom’s basement. We’re honored that you chose to spend this time with us.

Our links are stored in mason jars full of lukewarm hotdog water. They don’t contain vitamin A, vitamin B12, vitamin E or any other vitamin or mineral that’s remotely good for you.

The NFL Draft is just over a week away! That means the last minute mock drafts are dropping left and right. Dane Brugler has the Falcons focusing on the defensive line in next week’s draft. Meanwhile, Peter King thinks the Falcons will zero in on edge K’Lavon Chaisson specifically. Last but certainly not least, Mel Kiper 4.0 has us double dipping on defense early.

Keeping track of all the prospects the Falcons are interested in is a big job, much too big for any one Falcons fan. But don’t dismay, because we’re here to do all the work for you. Check out our draft prospect interest tracker, if you’re so inclined.

The new Falcons uniforms are a somewhat controversial subject. Some people love them, while others can’t stand them. But no matter how you feel about a red to black gradient, we’ve got the all the info you need if you’re interested in purchasing one of your very own. And speaking of Falcons apparel, the new Falcons draft hats are being sold now, too.

This idea that the Falcons might be seriously interested in trading up in the first round is getting some traction. But if they do trade up, who would they be interested in anyway? Kevin Knight takes some educated guesses.

In news that should come as no surprise to any of you, Falcons Arthur Blank has continued his charitable ways during the COVID-19 pandemic.
