Four-year starter at Cincinnati has intriguing mobility and an NFL-caliber arm, but he needs refinement. Ridder isn't likely to start early in his rookie season but will get a shot to replace Marcus Mariota as the Atlanta starter at some point.

Desmond Ridder selected No. 74 by Atlanta Falcons

The Atlanta Falcons have selected QB Desmond Ridder with the No. 74 overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

Ridder will have an opportunity to compete with free agent acquisition QB Marcus Mariota to start in a revamped Falcons offense. Accuracy has always been an issue for the big-armed Ridder, but he will look to overcome that with the overall arm talent to succeed at the NFL level.
