How would you grade the Day 2 draft haul for the Falcons?

Atlanta snagged safety Richie Grant and offensive lineman Jalen Mayfield. What do you think of those picks?

The Falcons picked Kyle Pitts on Thursday night, and almost 80% of you gave that selection an A. Pitts is expected to give Atlanta an elite receiving threat Matt Ryan and Arthur Smith will love having, and the thought of this offense being fearsome again both now and in the future clearly has fans excited.

On Day 2 of the draft, the Falcons went with less splashy selections, but ones that deliver intriguing players who just so happen to fill a couple of massive needs. UCF safety Richie Grant is an aggressive, versatile player who will likely step in as the starting free safety and will be a critical long-term piece for a retooling defense if he lives up to his billing. Michigan offensive lineman Jalen Mayfield is a nasty, seasoned blocker who figures to compete for the vacant left guard spot in Atlanta, and will top out as a versatile reserve at worst for this year.

This team is far from done with their draft class, but given the intersection of need and talent, what did you think of Grant and Mayfield on Day 2?
