Atlanta Falcons 2021 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 9.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2021 NFL draft, we will update our Atlanta Falcons Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Atlanta Falcons from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Falcons:

EDSFootball - Hanson (4/15)

4. Justin Fields, QB, Ohio State

Like Trevor Lawrence, Fields was a highly-coveted, five-star recruit in the 2018 recruiting class.

Even if 2020 was a bit of an up-and-down season for Fields, who at times tried to do too much, he showed tremendous toughness and leadership in Ohio State's semifinal win over Clemson as he threw for 385 yards and six touchdowns. A two-time Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year, the dual-threat quarterback accounted for 78 total touchdowns -- 63 passing and 15 rushing -- while throwing only nine interceptions over 22 games as Ohio State's starter.

If the Falcons aren't able to find a trade offer they like to move back, the Atlanta area native would have the opportunity to learn behind Matt Ryan in 2021 before potentially becoming the face of the franchise in 2022 and beyond.

Fox Sports - Rang (4/15)

4. Trey Lance, QB, North Dakota State

Matt Ryan remains one of the league's better quarterbacks and, ironically, that fact contributes to why Atlanta might very well opt to select his replacement now. The Falcons have not owned a Top 10 pick since Ryan's MVP season in 2016. As unproven against elite competition as Lance is, talents like the North Dakota State QB don't last long on Draft Day. Further, consider the background of Fontenot (New Orleans) and Smith (Tennessee), who helped get their promotions in Atlanta based on the surprising development the past few years of dual-threat quarterbacks Taysom Hill and Ryan Tannehill, respectively.

CBS Sports - Jones (4/14)

4. Micah Parsons, LB, Penn State

He has the talent to nearly justify staying at No. 4 and picking him. In this mock, Parsons slides to the middle of the first round and goes to a team needing to fill a defense full of holes. Parsons has uncommon speed for coverage and rushing the passer, two things Atlanta really needs.

2020 NFL Power Rankings: Atlanta Falcons

Throughout the 2020 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Here is where the Atlanta Falcons rank in terms of average, best and worst:

Below you will find a Week 17 roundup for the Falcons in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 19

Keanu Neal, S: You could make the case for center Alex Mack, but he's 35. Neal battled injuries in 2018 and 2019, appearing in just four games combined. But he's stayed healthy this season and has played well. A hard-hitting strong safety, Neal will be just 26 at the start of next season.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 28

They played tough against the Chiefs, but they just can't find a way to win close games. It's been a tough season.

USA Today -- Rank: 16

WR Calvin Ridley has been their best player all season, producing (82 catches for 1,322 yards and 9 TDs) at a Julio Jones-type level.
