Notes

  • As the result of a negative differential of free agent signings and departures that the Falcons experienced during the 2018 free agency period, the team received two compensatory selections for the 2019 draft.[1]
  • The Falcons traded their second-round (45th overall) and third-round (79th overall) picks to the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for their first-round (31st overall) and sixth-round (203rd overall) selections.
