The Atlanta Falcons will feature 10 first round picks as starters on offense in 2020.

According to Elias Sports Bureau, the 10 first round starters is the most in the NFL since 1967. Former Rams first round pick Todd Gurley joined the squad last week, and that was enough to get them over the hump.

Quarterback Matt Ryan and receivers Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley are some other notable first round starters on offense.

There’s officially no excuse for the Falcons to not be damn good in 2020. They’re absolutely loaded on offense.

Adding Gurley should open up the passing game in a big way for Ryan, Ridley and Jones. If that offense gets clicking, they are going to score in bunches.

If the Falcons don’t win with this roster, then it’s time to clean house. There will simply not be an excuse of any kind for losing.

Head coach Dan Quinn has been handed an absolutely dominant offense. Given the fact the NFL is a game that favors the offense, the Falcons have every advantage they need to win games.

Again, if it doesn’t happen, then people will lose their jobs.
