  1. 16. Atlanta Falcons (7-9) Javon Kinlaw, DT, South Carolina The Falcons addressed the edge in free agency by signing Dante Fowler Jr. so here they work to better flank Fowler and Grady Jarrett from the inside. Kinlaw (6-5, 324 pounds) knows how to use his size and arms to complement his strength and power at the point of attack. 47. Atlanta Falcons Clyde Edwards-Helaire, RB, LSU The Falcons need to get some fresh legs to supplement Todd Gurley in passing situations to give them again what they once had with Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman. Edwards-Helaire (5-7, 207 po
  2. 1. K'Lavon Chaisson Edge LSU Thomas Dimitroff said he wasn't worried about being in "cap ****," and apparently he was telling the truth. Atlanta was able to fill major holes at EDGE, RB, and TE before adding much-needed depth at CB3, WR4, and along the OL. As of now, they still need help along the defensive line, linebacker, and cornerback, but they have a lot more flexibility in terms of what they need to target and when.In this mock, Javon Kinlaw goes right before their pick, but they are able to add an impact player who can move between the line and linebacker the way he did at LSU.
  3. 1. K'Lavon Chaisson Edge LSU Atlanta filled its most pressing pass-rushing needs by signing Dante Fowler to a three-year deal today. But Takk McKinley is likely gone next year, and Chaisson has shown his ability to play off the line of scrimmage. With De'Vondre Campbell apparently headed elsewhere, Chaisson can step in as a slightly-larger version of Isaiah Simmons. Chaisson can rush the passer, drop into coverage, and defend wide runs. He is the sort of "game wrecker" Quinn and Dimitroff have been looking for. With the loss of Desmond Trufant, they could be looking at a corner here
  4. 1. A.J. Epenesa DE Iowa Ideally, the Falcons would love for Chaisson to slide down to this pick, but Epenesa seems a safer bet to be there at #16. Not surprisingly, he tested poorly in the speed drills, but he did OK in the agility-based drills. He performed pretty decently in the power-based broad jump that Atlanta has traditionally valued in linemen.With Epenesa, you are drafting the floor, not the ceiling; the performance, not the ability. He's a reasonably safe pick, similar in his Combine scores to Clelin Ferrell. Epenesa was a tad slower, but he's also ten pounds heavier and mor
  5. 1. A.J. Epenesa DE Iowa Since arriving in Atlanta as GM, Thomas Dimitroff has struggled to find an impact edge rusher --despite employing two head coaches who started as defensive line coaches. Only Vic Beasley's single season in 2016 qualifies as a success, and one that proved unrepeatable. He's been much more adept at finding interior rushers like Grady Jarrett and his 22% pass-rush win rate , which was second only to Aaron Donald's this season. They've also found success with players like Adrian Clayborn and Jack Crawford, who can play inside on clear passing downs and outside in b
