2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

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.
