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.
