Atlanta Falcons (No. 8 overall)
Another NFC South team to make the list, the Falcons are nearing the end of the Matt Ryan era. It’s been said that Ryan will get at least one more year with the team that took him No. 3 overall in 2008 but they’d be wise to add his successor in this draft so they’re not in a bind a year from now.
Saints fans would be gutted if the Falcons took the quarterback they were wanting in the first round and even more so if that guy went on to be a stud. They’ve had to watch Ryan win an MVP and make a Super Bowl and we never want good things to happen to the Falcons.
Hopefully, Atlanta goes in another direction and puts the quarterback questions on the backburner once again.
Denver Broncos (No. 9 overall)
I don’t know about all of you but I’ve been tired of hearing about the ‘Aaron Rodgers to Denver’ discussions since they began last offseason.
It feels like every year the Broncos are in line to land a quarterback but something gets in the way and it doesn’t happen. They then either trade for a mediocre player or sign someone who’s past his prime and the cycle repeats.
While Denver continues to be a spot people think could land a big-name quarterback this offseason, they play in a tough division and quarterbacks might not want to go there as a result. That could make the draft the Broncos’ best option and they have a high draft pick to find the guy they want.
