The Atlanta Falcons have struggled mightily to find help around defensive tackle Grady Jarrett. The jury is still out on Marlon Davidson, who is just entering his second season, but getting a more consistent pass rush will be important.
Ta’Quon Graham might not have three-down ability right now on the interior, but he will provide some juice as a pass rusher in sub packages, and brings explosiveness in his first step, and converts that initial quickness into power. This is a good swing this late.
Speaking once again about the defensive line, outside of Dante Fowler, the edge rush will be a major question mark heading into the season. Both Vic Beasley and Takk McKinley didn’t work out as speed rushers, so adding a player like Ade Ogundeji with length and explosiveness brings some intrigue. But, it’s not something that moves the needle in an important spot right away.
Avery Williams became the darling sleeper of draft Twitter in the final days before the 2021 NFL Draft, touting his skills as a potential slot corner. He will provide an impact on special teams throughout his career, but two picks to help out the slot without any capital addressing the boundary is a tough sell.
