2021 Fantasy Outlook
Perhaps in recognition of Julio Jones' durability concerns and advancing age, the Falcons nabbed Darby with a sixth-round pick in the 2021 Draft to fortify their wide receiver room. While he lacked standout production in four years at Arizona State and didn't test well during the pre-draft process, Darby drew high marks as a deep-ball route runner. Darby likely will need to prove his worth on special teams to make the roster, and the fact he's buried on the depth chart may mean he's a regular healthy scratch in that scenario. Read Past Outlooks
Going to Atlanta
WRAtlanta Falcons
May 1, 2021
The Falcons selected Darby in the sixth round of the 2021 NFL Draft, 187th overall.
Something of a fly-route specialist at Arizona State, Darby doesn't look like a serious candidate for wide receiver reps in the NFL. At 6-foot, 201 pounds, Darby ran only a 4.61 40 with a 34.5-inch vertical and 117-inch broad jump, all of which would be red flags for a receiver 20 pounds heavier than himself. Darby's production was not of a standout level to imply a standout skill set, so he might be more a character/special teams sort of utility to the Falcons than a receiver specifically.
