Updated mock draft from Scott Wright

The Falcons appear to be zeroing in on three prospects and it is becoming pretty apparent that Glenn Dorsey is at the top of their wish list, with Matt Ryan and Jake Long as the backup options. Sure quarterback and offensive tackle are huge needs but they are just as thin at defensive tackle and with mock drafts it is important to look at the backgrounds and tendencies of each team's management regime. Head Coach Mike Smith has defensive credentials and General Manager Thomas Dimitroff comes from New England where they built their great defense by using #1 picks on Richard Seymour, Ty Warren and Vince Wilfork. Advantage Dorsey. Matt Ryan has to be in the conversation here but with three second round picks the Falcons will be in position to trade back up into the first round for either Brian Brohm or Joe Flacco and they may even be able land one of them at #34. Both Jake Long and Glenn Dorsey could be gone by this point in which case Atlanta's decision would be made for them but if Dorsey is available he is their guy.

I disagree with one thing...I think Jake Long might be our no. 2 option(I'm not thrilled about it, but I think he is...wish he was further down the list)...but we have several guys ahead of Ryan...Ellis, Gholston, Albert...I'd take them all, over Ryan. Ryan just doesn't seem like a top 10 guy.

AGREED...IT WILL BE EITHER J. Long, Dorsey, or Ryan. You guys are kidding yourselves if you put another name in there. It will be one of these 3 and noone else.

I like the first 3 picks but I am not sold on Collins.

JMHO

Yeah but he is good value that low in the second esp. with ALL the other guys gone (Long, Clady, Ottah, Williams, Cherilus) The only other options would be Sam Baker or Carl Nicks. Carl Nicks is more RT and Sam Baker has T-rex arms. So take your pick they all three are potential good or bad picks.
