With Justin Fields on the board at Pick #4, the Falcons' resolve to pick Kyle Pitts threw some analysts. Recent revelations that Julio Jones had asked for a trade prior to the draft shed some light on that decision. Under Dirk Koetter, Atlanta struggled to convert without Julio on the field. Adding Pitts while subtracting Jones will make the salary cap work, but it will ease the minds of Defensive Coordinators who will face the Atlanta offense. By the time this is published, perhaps the greatest talent to wear a Falcons' jersey could be traded. One era ends and another begins.

FALCONS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
