Atlanta Falcons and the 10th pick in the NFL Draft: A dynasty in the making

The Falcons are in the playoff hunt despite a glaring hole at quarterback. However, the good news is that Atlanta currently sits inside the top ten at the 2024 NFL Draft, as well. Will a solution behind center come from the draft?

Florida State's Loss, Falcons’ Gain: Keon Coleman

The Falcons also need to address their wide receiver position, and one player who could fill that void is Florida State's Keon Coleman. Coleman recently declared for the 2024 NFL Draft, bypassing the Orange Bowl to focus on his professional aspirations. In his lone season with the Seminoles, Coleman showcased his talent and emerged as a favorite target for quarterback Jordan Travis.

Standing at 6-foot-4, Coleman possesses the size and athleticism to be a dominant receiver at the next level. He led the ACC in touchdown catches, displaying his ability to create separation and make big plays in the red zone. Coleman's punt return skills add another dimension to his game, making him an attractive prospect for teams looking for versatile playmakers.

If the Falcons wait on a signal-caller until the second round, they could get another weapon to set up the success of the future franchise quarterback. Think of Bo Nix or J.J. McCarthy walking into a situation with Drake London and Keon Coleman at receiver, Kyle Pitts at tight end, and Bijan Robinson in the backfield. That's how you build a dynasty.
