The NFL Draft is this week, Thursday through Saturday, and the team has several needs in the three-day selection process. The first round will be Thursday, starting at 8 p.m. The second and third rounds will be Friday, starting at 7 p.m. The fourth through seventh rounds will be Saturday, starting at noon.
The Falcons go into the draft with seven selections. In addition to the 26th overall pick of the first round, the Falcons hold picks 58 (second round), 90th (third round), 126th (fourth round), 200 (sixth) and 244 (seventh). Atlanta was awarded the final pick in the draft (No. 256) as a compensatory pick for losing five players in free agency in 2017.
