Where did the Falcons’ draft capital go?


The Falcons traded away some of their draft capital in the 2020 NFL draft.

Here’s what that capital netted for other teams:

» The Ravens took Ohio State running back J.K. Dobbins with the second-round pick they received from the Falcons in the trade for tight end Hayden Hurst.

The Falcons received the pick from the Patriots in the Mohamed Sanu trade.

» The Jaguars took Auburn safety Daniel Thomas with the Falcons' fifth-round pick they received from the Ravens.

» The 49ers took Georgia tight end Charlie Woerner with the Falcons' sixth-round pick they received from the Eagles (from the Duke Riley/Johnathan Cyprien trade).

So, that’s where the draft capital went and led to to take reaches in the first and fourth rounds to fill needs.
