With Sunday’s 24-10 win over the Carolina Panthers, the Atlanta Falcons would have the 10th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, barring any trades. While it’s too early to mock the 2019 NFL Draft, the Falcons have glaring needs in the trenches. Many draft prognosticators have the Falcons picking a defensive lineman in round one. If he is Dexter Lawrence or Cleland Ferrell, both from Clemson, either player must compliment established defensive lineman Grady Jarrett and be able to play immediately.

Here is the projected 2019 NFL Draft Order:

1. Cardinals (3-12)
2. Raiders (3-11)
3. 49ers (4-11)
4. Jets (4-11)
5. Lions (5-10)
6. Buccaneers (5-10)
7. Bills (5-10)^
8. Giants (5-10)^
9. Jaguars (5-10)
10. Falcons (6-9)
11. Panthers (6-9)
12. Bengals (6-9)
13. Broncos (6-8)
14. Packers (6-8-1)
15. Dolphins (7-8)
16. Redskins (7-8)
17. Browns (7-7-1)
18. Eagles (8-7)
19. Steelers (8-6-1)
20. Titans (9-6)
21. Vikings (8-6-1)*
22. Colts (9-6)*
23. Seahawks (9-6)*
