A New Hope – Atlanta Falcons 2024 Draft Profile

There was a strong sense of optimism emanating from the 404 as the Atlanta Falcons headed into the 2023-24 season.

They had a strong draft and good moves that seemed to set them up for success, but coaching failed them as the year progressed. Now Atlanta heads into the 2024 NFL Draft with a new captain in Raheem Morris, and a renewed hope. Will they find their chosen one this year?


Jayden Daniels, QB, LSU

Ladd McConkey, WR, Georgia

Justin Eboigbe, Edge, Alabama


Atlanta has struggled with signal callers since Matt Ryan left, and will need to find their QB1 sooner rather than later. The good thing is that the quarterback they draft doesn’t have to be a finished product out the box, which alleviates any pressure on the young prospect.

Jayden Daniels fits the bill of a new age NFL quarterback in every sense of the word. He has the athleticism to extend plays and create, while possessing the arm talent to make every throw at the professional level. Atlanta would be able to go one of two routes with Daniels: sit him behind a veteran to learn or start him day one. Neither is a bad idea, and regardless they will get a stud that can develop into a starter for the next decade.

After getting their future secured, the Falcons will need to add to the weapons cache they have.

Having players like Drake London and Kyle Pitts as incumbent weapons isn’t a bad foundation, but adding to them is a must. Atlanta should look to add Ladd McConkey as a perfect compliment to this receiving corps.

McConkey is a smooth route runner with deceptive speed and quickness. He has the ability to create space for other receivers, as his IQ of how to navigate coverages keeps the spacing open for others to operate. Couple all of that with his knack for getting open deep, and you have a recipe for an elite WR2 in the NFL.

When you have a defensive minded coach you need players that fit his scheme. Raheem Morris loves the versatile edge rusher who can play inside or outside, and Justin Eboigbe is just that.

Eboigbe is a very nimble edge rusher with a relentless motor. He possesses the body control to play on the edge and the size to play the three or five-technique. Being able to get a pass rusher of this caliber in the mid to late rounds would set up the Falcons with a defensive chess piece, and improve the defense immensely.

Atlanta is looking to revitalize this franchise and city by playing a winning brand of football. That all starts with the NFL Draft.
