Falcons General Manager Terry Fontenot is making no secret that he’d like to get a quarterback in this week’s NFL draft.

“We could come out of this draft with a quarterback. We want to add to that room,” Fontenot said today.

The Falcons currently have just two quarterbacks on the roster, Marcus Mariota and Feleipe Franks. Mariota is expected to be the starter in Atlanta, while Franks was an undrafted rookie last year who barely played in 2021. They’ll surely add at least one quarterback before training camp.

The Falcons own the eighth overall pick in the draft, and few people think they’re picking a quarterback that high. They also have two second-round picks and two third-round picks, and it wouldn’t be surprising if Day 2 is when the Falcons find a quarterback.

  1. Few people may see it but dont discount Atlanta taking a qb 8th. Besides that I’d say theres a good chance they trade back into the end of the 1st rd to take a qb rather than wait for the 2nd round

  2. The Bears franchise went downhill as soon as they signed Khalil Mack. Multiple coaches and GM’s have been fired, since. But they were only a player away, and Mack was the missing piece. Now, a total rebuild??

  3. Word on the street,… ATL is working hard on getting GB to trade Jordan Love. No word on compensation,… but there reportedly are 2 other teams interested in trading for Love.
