OT Penei Sewell not worth Falcons No. 4 pick

The Atlanta Falcons have many positions of need that they are looking to fill with the 2021 NFL Draft just over a month away.

The Falcons hold the No. 4 overall pick suggesting that they could go quarterback but they have also been mocked by many to snag an offensive or defensive lineman.

Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan is coming off his third consecutive season of being sacked more than 40 times. In fact, he's been sacked 131 times since 2018.

One of those names that has come up in NFL mock drafts, and could offer Ryan more protection, is Oregon Ducks' offensive tackle Penei Sewell.

However, Radio.com NFL Insider Brian Baldinger joined Andy and Randy on Tuesday saying he would be concerned if the Falcons drafted Sewell that high.

"I don't know that he's that guy yet. I think he has the potential to be really good," Baldinger told 92.9 The Game. "I don't know right now at four if I'm willing to take him over (TE) Kyle Pitts or (WR) Ja'Marr Chase or somebody like that right now."

If the Falcons did draft Sewell, he would be an immediate upgrade over left guard James Carpenter right now.

"He wasn't Jonathan Ogden (in college)," Baldinger continued. "You can see the talent that he has. He's got talent, and he's a natural left tackle and all that. But I don't think he's a finished product."
