Breaking down the Atlanta Falcons‘ 2018 draft class.
Round 1, No. 26 overall: Calvin Ridley, WR, Alabama
My take: Defensive tackle appeared to be a more pressing need for the Falcons, but they went offense instead. Obviously they felt like Matt Ryan needed another weapon to complement Julio Jones as the Falcons struggled to make plays down the field last season. Ridley is a great route-runner with 4.43-second speed, so he can create separation and put stress on defenses.
