Best ATL Mock!


Recommended Posts

Falcons trade 1st round pick to Dallas for there two 1's, 3rd round pick, and a 3rd next year.

1a. Rashard Mendenhall RB (Illinois)-Lots of potential here. Mendenhall, who has both size and power (see his attributes), is averaging seven yards per carry through four games in 2007. Mendenhall trampled Indiana for 214 yards on 27 rushes. He has 10 receptions this year.

1b. Chris Williams OT (Vanderbilt)-Co-captain of Vanderbilt's football team, Chris Williams simply doesn't allow sacks. His 40 at his size is remarkable.

2a. Frank Okam DT (Texas)-Frank Okam's bread and butter is his ability to stop the run, but don't take that to mean he's a one-dimensional defensive tackle.

2b. Chad Henne QB (Michigan)-Chad Henne has impressed scouts at Senior Bowl practices enough that he's emerged as the clear-cut No. 4 quarterback on this list. Henne has shown the ability to throw the ball efficiently and proven that he can avoid a pass rush.

3a. Phillip Wheeler LB (Georgia Tech)-Philip Wheeler will be playing inside linebacker for Georgia Tech in 2006, but he's better suited on the outside when he gets to the pros. He followed up a four-sack, four-pick 2005 campaign with a whopping nine sacks in 2006.

3b. Tony Hills OT (Texas)-Started every game for Texas in 2006. Can play special teams. Nice 40 for his size.

3c. Jermichale Finley TE (Texas)-Finley recorded 31 receptions, 372 yards and three touchdowns as a freshman - and he didn't play the first two games! Finley has nice speed despite his build, which still has a lot of room for growth. Coaches will love that he's a hard-worker who studies film like Ron Jaworski.

(Kerney) 3d. Matt Forte RB (Tulane)-Recorded four consecutive 100-yard rushing performances in 2006 before missing the final three games of the season with a knee injury.

4a. Eddie Royal WR (Virginia Tech)-A return specialist, as you should be able to tell by his exceptional 40. Never had more than 31 receptions in a single season, but could that just be a product of the woeful offense he plays in?

5a. Bobbie Williams FS (Bethune Cookman)-Following in the footsteps of Bethune-Cookman alumnus and current Packers safety Nick Collins, Bobbie Williams is the best safety in 1-AA. An interception machine, Williams has picked off 13 passes in his career.

6a. Brandon Coutu K (Georgia)-Missed seven games in 2006 because of a hamstring injury. Was 10-of-11 overall, and 2-of-3 from beyond 50 yards. In 2005, Coutu hit 23-of-29, nailing 3-of-5 from 50-plus.

(Rossum) 6b. Johnny Dingle DE (West Virginia)-Really improved in his junior year. Started 12 games. Not really sure if I agreed with his decision to come out. Will go on Sunday afternoon.

7a. Fernando Velasco OC (Georgia)-Huge for a center, but definitely not slow. Raw - Fernando Velasco played guard last year.

The trade is great, but I don't know how realistic it is.

I know some people like Chris Williams (even some who would say he goes before pick #20 in the 1st round), but I like Gosder Cherilus better.

And I think I have made it very clear how I feel about Henne, so I will refrain from that rant this time.
