2024 NFL draft: New Falcons 7-round mock draft

The Atlanta Falcons are one of several teams heading into the offseason without a spot in the playoffs and with a vacancy at head coach. And as we are doing with every NFL team minus a head coach, we are updating our seven-round NFL mock draft for 2024. Like most teams picking high in the first round, the Falcons have a real quarterback problem and it must be addressed. Atlanta also needs to upgrade at wide receiver and all over the defense.
