3 Falcons who could get cut after the 2024 NFL Draft

The Atlanta Falcons could make these three cuts after the draft depending on how things play out.

NFL rosters are constantly being tuned. We have seen it in Atlanta with Terry Fontenot making cuts, trades, and signings no matter what day it is.

The draft gives teams a new wave of players which means a new wave will hit the road. For the Falcons, here are three players who could get the call that they are being replaced by a rookie.

1. JoVaughn Gwyn, IOL

As a seventh-round pick who didn’t have a single offensive snap last year and was drafted by the prior coaching staff, JoVaughn Gwyn is not guaranteed anything.

We have already seen a similar move made with the team releasing late-round pick and former Georgia Bulldog Justin Shaffer. He was in a scarily similar situation as Gwyn.

With a change in philosophy, Gwyn will likely be replaced in the mid-to-late rounds. The coaching staff has no loyalty to him which could cost him his job.

 

2. Ade Ogundeji, OLB

I don’t like beating a guy when he is already down but there is no way around it, Ade Ogundeji should consider himself lucky if he makes it through preseason, let alone making it past final cuts.

Ogundeji as a primary starter in 2022 was anything but good. He managed only a handful of pressures throughout an entire season in what was his second year. I wrote about it back then, he was the worst starter in the NFL—he took the torch from Jalen Mayfield.

Now Ogundeji is coming off of a season-ending injury. Having to come back from an injury as a fringe player puts Ogendeji’s future in serious doubt, especially if the Falcons decide to draft multiple edge rushers.

3. Richie Grant, S

Richie Grant has not had the career he was hoping for. Coming out of UCF as a second-round pick, Grant was expected to be an above-average starter. That has not been the case.

While there have been moments where he has been a decent player, he has always reverted back to either missing a crucial tackle or getting burnt in coverage. Last season, Grant went from playing every snap of every game to being benched for DeMarcco Hellams.

Drafting a safety on day two is in the cards for the Falcons and if they do so then they will outright cut ties with Grant.
