2012 Stats: 16 Games Played, 74 Catches, 911 Yards, 4 Touchdowns, 50 First Down catches
After losing Julio Jones for the season, the Falcons need someone who can provide the deep threat that Jones did. Brandon Lloyd is definitely that guy, as he was able to be a great receiver in the highly complicated New England offense.
Simplifying the offense and giving him a quarterback who is just a tier below Tom Brady will allow him to have the same kind of production. Lloyd's biggest problem is that he has been known to have a diva issue.
But with Roddy White and Tony Gonzalez leading the receiving corps, they should be able to keep that in check the same way Brady and Rob Gronkowski did in 2012.
