With just one week left in the NFL season, it is clear Atlanta Falcons fans can turn their attention towards the 2021 NFL Draft.

Until then the best we can do is guess what type of players they will be targeting based on the current strength of the roster and projected needs going forward.
This upcoming week versus the Buccaneers is a big one, as if they win they can go from the fourth overall pick to pick 10, a drastic change for the future of this franchise. While many other teams prepare for the playoffs and position themselves to make a run the Falcons are in a critical spot to set the team up for the future.
