2017

2016

The 17th overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft is expected to slide into the starting strong safety role right away. Neal brings a physical presence to a defense that struggled to get off the field in 2015, as teams converted 43 percent of their third downs against the Falcons. He should be in a prime spot to rack up defensive statistics assuming he can hold off Kemal Ishmael for Atlanta's starting job, giving him good potential in IDP leagues.
