NFL: Atlanta Training Camp Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Our ongoing series previewing the Falcons 2021 roster continues with the running backs. I was joined by Jeanna Kelley and Dave Choate to talk about the position that will see no returning starters from the 2020 squad. We know that Arthur Smith won’t have his “Derrick Henry” in Atlanta, but are there some good options on the roster already? And does he even need the best running back in football to field a respectable running game?

We talked about that more. Topics include:

  • Why the Mike Davis signing made a ton of sense and we he’s the de facto starter at this point
  • The strange case of Qadree Ollison and whether or not his 3rd year will be a breakout one for him
  • Whether or not Cordarelle Patterson will see extensive use as a running back and why he may be the reason the Falcons only keep 5 wide receivers this year
  • The competition between Javian Hawkins and Caleb Huntley for that potential last spot on the depth chart and why Hawkins may currently have the edge\
