Falcons WR Mohamed Sanu quietly had a career year in 2018

With the NFL’s best wide receiver in Julio Jones and the emergence of first-round pick Calvin Ridley, it was easy to overlook the contributions of Falcons receiver Mohamed Sanu in 2018. Quietly, Sanu had a career year, catching 66 balls for a career-high 838 receiving yards. How was he was abl...

With the NFL’s best wide receiver in Julio Jones and the emergence of first-round pick Calvin Ridley, it was easy to overlook the contributions of Falcons receiver Mohamed Sanu in 2018. Quietly, Sanu had a career year, catching 66 balls for a career-high 838 receiving yards. How was he was able to do so much damage last season despite being the team’s No. 3 option?

Is there any NFL team that even comes close to the level of talent that the Atlanta Falcons have at wide receiver? The Cleveland Browns could have an argument with Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landryteaming up again, but Atlanta should still be considered No. 1 in this area for now. Not only is Julio Jones the best receiver of our time, the team has two extremely capable options on the depth chart behind him.

The top two quarterback prospects in the 2019 NFL draft are Oklahoma’s Kyler Murray and Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins. There’s a decent chance they will both get picked in the top 10 come the end of April.
