The 2021 NFL Draft was held last week in Cleveland, Ohio and the Atlanta Falcons walked away with nine new players. With the fourth pick in the draft and the first for the Falcons, they selected tight end Kyle Pitts from The University of Florida. Heading into the draft, Pitts was regarded as the best prospect ever at the position.
The remaining selections included: Richie Grant, Jalen Mayfield, Darren Hall, Drew Dalman, Ta’Quon Graham, Adetokunbo Ogundeji, Avery Williams and Frank Darby.
The Falcons welcomed a new head coach Arthur Smith, former offensive coordinator for the Tennessee Titans, earlier this year.
