  Falcons | Five players on ATL draft radar    Fri Apr 9, 01:12 PM

Oregon OT Penei Sewell, Florida TE Kyle Pitts, Ohio State QB Justin Fields, LSU WR Ja'Marr Chase and Alabama CB Patrick Surtain II are on the Atlanta Falcons' draft radar screen if they retain the No. 4 overall pick, according to a report Friday, April 9.

Footballguys view: All of these players would be interesting for Atlanta...and some of them might be there if the Falcons decide to trade back. Fields could be a perfect quarterback to groom behind Matt Ryan for a year and then take over the franchise. Pitts is a playmaking tight end (think Darren Waller) who could make an instant impact on any offense.
