Drake London

21-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
2022 Fantasy Outlook
Isn't it convenient when the team most in need of a wide receiver is the first to pick one in the draft? So it went for Drake, a three-year starter at USC who averaged 43.6 yards per game as a true freshman, 83.7 ypg as a sophomore and 135.5 ypg as a junior. He went eighth overall to Atlanta, despite missing the final four games of his junior year -- plus predraft workouts -- after fracturing his ankle in October. It may have been a blessing in disguise, considering USC's season was going nowhere and the 40-yard dash and other Combine drills were never likely to be the strength of London's prospect profile. What he does bring to the table is production, size (6-4, 219) and youth (21 in July), and he landed with a team where the other candidates for WR snaps are an uninspired mix of journeymen and undrafted guys. The Falcons do have last year's first-rounder, Kyle Pitts, the 21-year-old tight end who eclipsed 1,000 yards as a rookie. They're seemingly counting on London to have a similar immediate impact, though even the success of Pitts' debut campaign illustrates a big part of the downside here, as the young TE scored only one TD on 68 catches. The Atlanta offense isn't likely to get much better with Marcus Mariota and Desmond Ridder replacing Matt Ryan at QB, unless both Pitts and London prove to be bonafide, ready-made superstars.

London (ankle) said he fully participated in Friday's rookie minicamp practice with no restrictions, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
ANALYSIS
London suffered a broken ankle in October last year, which sidelined him for the remainder of his final campaign at USC. The 6-foot-4 wideout was a limited participant during his pro day, but there wasn't much doubt that he'd be good to go for his first NFL season. Regardless, it's still an encouraging sign to see the rookie available and participating during minicamp.
