Kyle Pitts is really, really good at football and he is going to be the best tight end in the NFL by the time the 2023 NFL season is over. That is about the only good thing I can say about the Atlanta Falcons' offense in 2022.

The team did a great job at pivoting off of Julio Jones at the perfect time as he was horrible in Tennessee and was released this offseason. However, it does not help that Calvin Ridley got busted for betting on NFL games and will not play a single snap in 2022 as a result.

The Falcons did draft Drake London, who was one of the elite receivers in this year's class. There is no doubt in my mind that London will have a solid NFL career but if there is one rookie that will fall behind after year one, it is probably London.

The reason being is that the Falcons have one of the worst quarterback situations in the league between Marcus Mariota and Desmond Ridder. In front of those two the Falcons have one of the worst offensive lines in the league. At least Mariota can actually run away from the pressure that the Falcons' offensive line will allow.

Cordarelle Patterson's performance from last season is unsustainable, especially considering he has never done it before in his career. The only bad thing about playing the Falcons is that the Chargers don't play them in the last month of the season, when they will likely be more focused on securing a top pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.
