Atlanta Falcons RAS Draft History

Julio Jones

In recent years, the Atlanta Falcons have been one of the most aggressive in drafting elite athletes. In 2017, they had the highest percentage of their roster composed of elite athletes and ranked 15th in the lowest percentage of sub 5.00 RAS athletes. It’s no surprise that players like Julio Jones and Vic Beasley measured among the elite, but in 31 years they’ve seen their fair share of good and bad players from both ends of the spectrum.
