The Falcons have a couple of strong cornerbacks on the roster, but they require extra depth. Atlanta ought to be on the lookout for both equally an exterior cornerback fitting that Richard Sherman or Desmond Trufant mould as properly as a more compact and more quickly nickel corner who can back again up Damontae Kazee.
Presently underneath agreement, the Falcons have the mega-deal for Trufant, plus next-spherical decide Isaiah Oliver and Damontae Kazee on their rookie deals. Backup Blidi Wreh-Wilson also lately signed a minimum wage deal. Just after 2019, only Trufant, Kazee and Oliver will be underneath agreement of this device. Here’s one cornerback prospect for Atlanta in each and every spherical of this draft class.
It is uncertain the Falcons will go just after a cornerback in the 1st spherical. That currently being reported, if they did, it would possibly be LSU’s Williams. Dimension-smart, he compares to Richard Sherman, but on the subject he’s closer to Charles Woodson. Coverage-smart, he’s capable in both equally gentleman and zone and would succeed in Atlanta’s cover-3 plan. He’s also a ball-hawk with 20 pass deflections and eight interceptions in two decades. As superior as Greedy is in coverage, he’s not a strong run defender owing to a absence of energy at periods.
