With the 2021 NFL draft behind us, it’s time to take stock of what happened under first time general manager Terry Fontenot. What themes did we see in this draft class that might predict how the team will draft in the future? What kind of players did they go after and how did this particular draft go?

We discuss all of this and more as I’m joined by Eric Robinson and Adnan Ikic to break down the 9 players drafted by the Falcons.

Topics discussed:

  • Why it’s hard to be disappointed in getting a talent like Kyle Pitts, and why he’s not just a tight end
  • The Falcons getting the best safety in this class and how he’s a perfect fit for a Dean Pees defense
  • Why Jaylen Mayfield may be the one questionable pick from this class
  • The guys drafted on day 3 and why they may be even more intriguing than the guys drafted ahead of them
  • So much more
