In almost every mock draft from the national draft pundits, the Falcons meet their desperate need for pass catchers. Drake London, Garrett Wilson and Treylon Burks have been running simulations for the Falcons since the news broke. Calvin Rileyis suspended. It is an undeniably crying need.
However, in Ringer’s latest mock draft, Danny Kelly has Atlanta going in a different direction. Still wide, but this time a new face – Jameson Williams.
The Falcons have little hope of a fight in 2022, so they won’t need to rush Williams back too quickly from a torn ACL, which he suffered in the national championship game. The fast former Crimson Tide star brings the on-field impact this offense desperately needs.
Coming off a torn ACL, Williams has been docked on most draft boards because the injury came so late in the season. However, reports suggest the former Alabama star won’t be missing much time when he shows up for training camp.
