3. Mohamed Sanu

With the rate the Atlanta Falcons are going, could this be a team that decides to load up on draft picks before the trade deadline?

This may not seem like the preference for a team that seemed like a strong contender in the NFC back in Week 2, but these next few weeks could determine what kind of shot the Falcons have at the playoffs, or if they will most likely be watching the playoffs from home again.

On paper, most quarterbacks would love to have the kind of weapons Matt Ryan is fortunate enough to work with on offense, and while Atlanta will always seem to be in good hands with Julio Jones, Mohamed Sanu seems like a player they could afford to move on from.

Sanu was originally brought on board back during the 2016 season to provide the Falcons with another reliable wideout to play alongside Jones. And while there have been plenty of great performance, Sanu does only have one touchdown to his name through five games in 2019.

Plus, with Atlanta being in great shape with Calvin Ridley as well, why not at least explore the trade market to see what they could get in return for Sanu?
