Atlanta Falcons 2022 NFL Mock Draft Roundup, 1.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2022 NFL Draft, we will update our Atlanta Falcons Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Atlanta Falcons from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks from recent NFL mock drafts for the Falcons:

EDSFootball - Hanson (5/10)

11. Kaiir Elam, CB, Florida

Elam followed up a strong true freshman season as a reserve with two interceptions and 11 passes defended in his first season as a starter in 2020. With continued development, Elam (6-2, 193) has the potential to hear his name called on Day 1 in 2022 like his uncle Matt was several years ago.

Touchdown Wire - Schofield (5/7)

10. Justyn Ross, WR, Clemson

With the addition of Kyle Pitts in this past draft class, the Atlanta Falcons added a dynamic weapon to their passing game. But with recent news that the organization could be looking to move Julio Jones, the receiver spot could be a need next spring.

That could open the door for a player like Justyn Ross from Clemson. Ross missed the past season due to a congenial fusion in his spine which required surgery, but it is believed that he will be cleared to play this fall. He racked up over 1,000 yards as a freshman in 2018 and led the Tigers with 66 receptions in 2019, and provided he is healthy his play-making ability puts him in position to be the first receiver selected next spring.

PFF - Renner (5/7)

10. Kyle Hamilton, S, Notre Dame

Hamilton is a long and rangy safety, but he is also one of the most versatile safeties in the country. At 6-foot-4, 219 pounds, Hamilton is like an Isaiah Simmons clone who can stay on the back end in the NFL.

2021 NFL Power Rankings: Atlanta Falcons

Throughout the 2021 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Here is where the Atlanta Falcons rank in terms of average, best and worst:

Below you will find a post-draft roundup for the Falcons in our consensus 2021 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 21

Player who benefited most from draft: QB Matt Ryan

The Falcons didn't take a quarterback in the first round (or any round), once again giving credence to the thought Ryan is still in Atlanta's future plans (although as we've seen with Matthew Stafford and Sam Darnold, things can change considerably in a year). The Falcons also gave him a tantalizing new offensive option in No. 4 overall pick Kyle Pitts, who head coach Arthur Smith could line up anywhere. Barring injuries, Atlanta's offense should be one of the most productive in the league, and Ryan -- with potential security in his job -- would be the catalyst for that. -- Michael Rothstein

NFL.com -- Rank: 23

Matt Ryan won. The Falcons could have tried to trade him. They could have drafted his replacement. They could have stripped the organization down to studs around him and went into a rebuild. Instead, Ryan will enter the 2021 season with no in-house competition at quarterback, a new offensive-minded head coach with pelts on the wall in Arthur Smith, and a dynamic new weapon in fourth overall pick Kyle Pitts, a tight end who profiles as a superstar-in-waiting. Adding Pitts to an offense that already includes Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley is legitimately scary. Yes ... Matt Ryan won.
