Aaron previews the Atlanta Falcons' upcoming preseason action against the Detroit Lions, and discusses key competitions at quarterback and center. He discusses if Desmond Ridder can change the narrative on the notion that he and Marcus Mariota aren't involved in a real quarterback competition. He discusses how Arthur Smith may approach deploying his starters on Friday night, before discussing if Matt Hennessy or Drew Dalman can create separation in their competition at center. He also discusses whether we'll get positive first impressions from the team's 2022 NFL Draft class, along with if we'll see substantial Year 2 and Year 3 jumps from previous draft classes.
