Could the Atlanta Falcons really start two rookies on the offensive line to start the season?

 Mike asked the question to Bryant McFadden if we could two rookies start on the Falcons offensive line.

 “We’ve got two guys we drafted in the first round, could you trust two rookies on the right side of the line.” Bell said “The idea of starting with the Vikings with a really good front, the Eagles having one and you start against those teams would you start the season with them starting together.”

Bryant talked about the most recent example of why this could happen.

 “No question you can." McFadden said "We just saw this same scenario come to fruition with the Colts a year ago Quenton Nelson was the first rounder and Braden Smith was a second rounder in 2018, started basically the whole year. I said when the Falcons drafted Lindstrom his comp was Quenton Nelson, Nelson is a guy who will knock you in the dirt and then tell you about it, now Lindstrom probably has that in his arsenal as well. I wouldn’t be surprised to see, eventually both guys getting into the starting lineup, you will see them eventually on the line together in 2019.”
