Marcus Mariota: Good news first: Mariota enters 2022 as the starter for the Falcons. The bad news? There's a strong chance that Desmond Ridder makes starts at some point this season. Mariota is off the fantasy radar in single-QB re-draft leagues, but his ability as a runner -- 264/1,574/13 (6.0 YPC) career rushing -- gives him some upside in daily fantasy tournaments, when starting.

Atlanta Falcons 2023 NFL Mock Draft Roundup, 1.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2023 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:

The Athletic - Dane Brugler (5/3)

5. Will Levis, QB, Kentucky

The top senior quarterback in next year's class, Levis blossomed in his first season at Kentucky after transferring from Penn State. He is a good-sized athlete with a loose arm and the creative instincts to make plays. Despite losing Liam Coen as offensive coordinator (hired as the offensive coordinator with the Rams), Kentucky went back to the McVay/Shanahan tree and hired former 49ers quarterback coach Rick Scangarello to run its offense, so the scheme and playbook should be similar.

Draft Wire - Luke Easterling (5/3)

3. Will Anderson, EDGE, Alabama

Even after grabbing two promising pass rushers in the 2022 draft, the Falcons wouldn't pass up the best overall player in next year's class, especially after stealing their quarterback of the future in third-rounder Desmond Ridder.

Fox Sports - Jason McIntyre (5/3)

2. Will Levis, QB, Kentucky

The Penn State transfer had a very good year for the Wildcats (8.0 YPA, 24 TDs) in the SEC and has a quick release. If you're looking for a sneaky QB pick to go first, this is your guy.

2022 NFL Power Rankings: Atlanta Falcons

Throughout the 2022 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-NFL Draft roundup for the Falcons in our consensus 2022 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 32

Player who benefited most from draft: DT Grady Jarrett

Jarrett, the Falcons' top front-seven defender, had little to no help last season. He saw double-teams regularly and sometimes even triple-teams. Atlanta's approach to the draft -- taking Day 2 rushers Arnold Ebiketie and DeAngelo Malone -- should help the pass rush. And, in turn, it should help Jarrett not face quite as much attention. Plus, Jarrett signed a $51 million, three-year extension days after the draft and celebrated a birthday, so that was a good week for him. -- Michael Rothstein

NFL.com -- Rank: 31

With Matt Ryan in Indianapolis, Calvin Ridley suspended and Julio Jones in Graybeards purgatory, the Falcons are starting over on offense. They began excavation last year by drafting tight end Kyle Pitts fourth overall, and they continued pouring foundation with the selection of USC wideout Drake London eighth overall on Thursday night. The 6-foot-4 London is a red-zone terror -- he called himself and the 6-6 Pitts the "twin towers" during a draft night appearance on the Around The NFL Podcast -- and the pair will give new quarterback Marcus Mariota a real opportunity to make plays. Speaking of Mariota, he'll have competition in the quarterback room in rookie Desmond Ridder, an intriguing Round 3 dart throw.
