4. The Atlanta Falcons

Simply put, the Falcons have too much offensive talent on rookie contracts to not be interested in adding a rookie quarterback in the draft. The Desmond Ridder experiment seems to have run its course in Atlanta, and being aggressive to acquire a top QB could be the formula for the Falcons to break through in a winnable NFC South.

With a new head coach in Raheem Morris, this regime will likely want to identify their guy early in their run, with perhaps this year's draft being Atlanta's best option to find Matt Ryan's successor as the team's franchise signal caller. Williams would certainly bring a different vibe to the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, and he could end up being the gunslinger that the team thought they were getting in Brett Favre over 30 years ago (Favre was a gunslinger, but was not in Atlanta for long).

The Falcons currently possess the eighth overall pick, just one spot shy of the ninth overall pick the Bears received from the Panthers a season ago. Considering the top of this year's quarterback class is as promising, if not more, than last season, the Bears could expect a similar trade package, including several premium draft picks and potentially a quality starter.
