2019 Record: 7-9-0

2020 Draft

1 (16). A.J. Terrell, CB, Clemson 2 (47). Marlon Davidson, DE, Auburn 3 (78). Matt Hennessy, C, Temple 4 (119). Mykal Walker, LB, Fresno State 4 (134). Jaylinn Hawkins, S, California 7 (228). Sterling Hofrichter, P, Syracuse

Additions/players brought back:
EDGE Dante Fowler Jr. (signed for three years, $48 million)
TE Hayden Hurst (via trade)
DI Tyeler Davison (signed for three years, $12 million, $4.5 million guaranteed)
RB Todd Gurley (signed for one year)

CB Desmond Trufant (cut)

2020:  The Falcons were dreadful in the first half of 2019, and as good as almost any team in the second half.  Which begs the question: which version will we see in 2020?  The addition of Todd Gurley and a draft full of defense will help; sharing a division with the Saints and Bucs and a tough schedule will not.

Projected 2020 Record: 8-8-0
