CB - ATL
Week 2 Outlook
First-round pick CB A.J. Terrell signed his four-year, $14.31 million rookie contract with the Falcons on Tuesday.
Terrell was selected 16th overall by the Falcon in the 2020 draft. He is expected to start immediately at CB alongside with Isaiah Oliver and Kendall Sheffield. Terrell racked up six interceptions and 20 pass defenses across 30 games for Clemson.
The Atlanta Falcons have selected cornerback A.J. Terrell with the No. 16 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
This was a major need for Atlanta and Terrell will likely become a day-one starter on the Falcons’ struggling defense. The former five-star recruit is a taller cornerback with long arms and uses his length to his advantage. There were reports of Atlanta trying to trade up for Florida corner C.J. Henderson but that never came to pass. Instead, they settle for Terrell out of Clemson.
