Atlanta Falcons: Youthful Offensive Line
The Falcons had two 1st round picks this year and used both of them on offensive linemen. Kaleb McGary is penciled in at right tackle while Chris Lindstrom is likely to start at right guard. In the long run, those two have a chance to anchor Atlanta’s offensive line for many years to come.
However, there’s undoubtedly a short-term risk in starting two rookies next to one another on the offensive line, even if the rest of the group is solid. Matt Ryan has the receivers around him to have another big year, but things can go wrong quickly if the two rookies aren’t ready to hold their own in the NFL trenches.
