Windy City Gridiron

● By Lester A. Wiltfong Jr.
With quarterbacks now expected to go 1-2-3 in the 2021 NFL Draft, that fourth overall selection has been generating a lot of buzz. It’s currently in the hands of the Atlanta Falcons, but reports of several teams looking to trade up has to have them exploring all possibilities. The Chicago Bears aren’t the only team that could be willing to send a draft haul to the Falcons, as the Washington Football Team, New England Patriots, Denver Broncos, and the Detroit Lions could all be ready to add a rookie quarterback to the mix. But don’t rule out the Falcons just staying pat and getting Matt Ryan’s heir apparent with the QB4 themselves. They’ll have several options at that spot including tight end Kyle Pitts, wide out Ja’Marr Chase, or whoever their top offensive tackle prospect is, but with teams so desperate for a quarterback they could easily set their franchise up with several high picks.
