Schraeder may not be a household name, but he has been a very solid player for the Falcons and has really earned a long-term extension from the Falcons.
Schraeder, 28, signed on with the Falcons as undrafted free agent out of Valdosta State back in 2013. He played out his three-year, $1,487,000 rookie contract with the team before Atlanta used a second-round tender on him.
In 2016, Schraeder appeared in all 10 games for the Falcons and is rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 13 offensive tackle out of 80 qualifying players.
