However, Dimitroff wouldn’t commit to Mixon specifically still being on the team’s draft board, per Alex Glaze of 11Alive.

      Every team in the NFL has a need, perhaps even more than one. That’s the nature of the free agency age as it’s much harder for teams to keep their talent for the duration of player’s career. That results in an added emphasis on drafting well.This year is no different as 32 teams — yes, even the New England Patriots — have holes that must be filled. But for some, that need is more extensive than others. For those teams, April’s draft could either make them or completely break them.With that in mind, here’s a look at 10 teams with glaring draft needs that must be addressed before t…

      Just in case you still thought there was a chance...sadly, no. Well, that’s that for 2018. Even though the Atlanta Falcons got a win Sunday, the cruel specter of time has had its final say.

      Falcons snap counts for a lopsided win over the Cardinals

      The Falcons continue to mix and match, especially on offense, and that’s something worth taking a closer look at. Well, that was fun.There wasn’t much to celebrate about the Falcons’ win over the Cardinals aside from just being a fan and enjoying a thumping, and we did that. But did the Falcons do anything different with playing time that sparked that big win, or was it just Atlanta being at least four times as good as Arizona? Let’s take a look at the snap counts and see what they can tell us. OffenseTy Sambrailo: 67Wes Schweitzer: 67Matt Ryan: 64Jake Matthews: 64Alex M…

      Deion Jones ran 19-plus MPH on his pick-6 in Falcons vs. Cardinals

      We knew Deion Jones was fast, but my goodness. Deion Jones may not yet be 100% after the foot injury that landed him on injured reserve for much of the season. But he looked pretty close to it when he returned an interception for a touchdown in the Falcons’ 40-14 win over the Cardinals on Sunday. The defense had quite a showing against rookie Josh Rosen, who was pressured into plenty of mistakes. Rosen finished his day with 132 yards, no touchdowns, a fumble, and two picks while taking six sacks from a Falcons unit that apparently has finally figured out how to rush a quarterback. O…
