The Atlanta Falcons added a powerful weapon to their arsenal on Thursday when using the No. 4 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft on Florida tight end Kyle Pitts. Now first-year head coach Arthur Smith and staff turn their attention to round two, where there’s a few different directions they could go.

Falcons second round position odds

DL: +275
RB: +350
CB: +400
OL: +400
S: +500
LB: +1000
QB: +1400
WR: +1400
TE: +10000
ST: +15000

Best bet

The Falcons have a need at corner and could draft Asante Samuel Jr. out of Florida State to play opposite of 2020 first-rounder A.J. Terrell. They could also decide to reach for running back like Javonte Williams out of North Carolina to complement free agent signing Mike Davis.

However, the best bet here would be to go with the Falcons selecting a defensive lineman with the 35th pick, most likely the powerful Christian Barmore out of Alabama to play inside with Grady Jarrett.
