ATLANTA--In his fourth annual mock draft, Falcons quarterback Joey Harrington opted to give his team a defensive lineman, Glenn Dorsey, over one of several quarterbacks available. Harrington believes that Dorsey brings the attitude and intangibles that the team needs to change the culture in the locker room.

I love Glenn Dorsey. He s got everything we need in a player, said Harrington, who draws up a mock draft each year and posts it on his website. He has tenacity, he has athleticism, he s a leader, and he s a great role model to boot. Plus, he gives us a little swagger. He'll make everybody a lot tougher, even Roddy White. Just kidding. Everybody else, though.

Harrington acknowledged that there were some intriguing options at the quarterback position, but didn t think that was an area of need for the Falcons.

There are going to be some decent quarterbacks available, Harrington said. But in my opinion that s not a big area of need for us right now. Plus, a lot of those young guys are overrated. Take that Brohm kid. His numbers in college were totally inflated by the system he played in. I think he only handed the ball off twice in his entire career, and both of those ended up being flea flickers that he threw for touchdowns.

Harrington has already shared his opinion about the quarterback situation with new coach Mike Smith, and said Smith was receptive to it.

Coach Smith was very receptive to the idea of selecting Dorsey, Harrington said. He loves his upside and thinks he can really help us on the defensive side of the ball. And I think he agreed with my thoughts on the quarterback situation. There aren t really any great ones in the draft. He likes Matt Ryan, but not too much, especially after he went undrafted in my mock. Anybody who goes undrafted has to have something seriously wrong with him.

The Falcons have so many glaring needs as a team that no one player is going to make much difference in 2008. For that reason, coach Smith says trading down is also an option.

In our position, you always think about trading down, said Smith, former defensive coordinator for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Sometimes it s better to pick up a few picks later in the draft than have one big one at the top. Then again, that one big one could be a franchise player, so you never know. In the end you just work together to come up with the best decision for the organization. By together, I mean Rich McKay and Arthur Blank will send a text message informing me who they picked and if I complain I get fired.
