Falcons 7 round Mock Draft 4/16/08


Recommended Posts

This Mock is one without the consideration of trades, I just did it pick by pick, let me know what you guys think(all criticism welcome). Ive also included video clips for each player if you want to view them. Enjoy.

3)Glenn Dorsey DT LSU


34)Dan Connor ILB Penn. State


37)Joe Flacco QB Deleware


48) Anthony Collins OT Kansas


68) Antwaun Molden CB Eastern Kentucky


98) Paul Hubbard WR Wisconsin


103)Kellen Davis TE Mich. State


138a)Kerry Brown OG App. State


138b) Chad Rinehart OG/OT Northern Iowa


172) David Vobora OLB Idaho


212)Corey Lynch S/ST App. State


232) Jeremy Thompson DE Wake Forrest


Dorsey-ideal pick for falcons, fits scheme and actually wants to be in Atlanta. He dominates up front and can take on the double team. He would be an instant stater for the falcons

Gah what a beast.

Connor- maybe wishful thinking but also realistic. If Connor falls to us this is a great pick, with Dorsey in front of him as well as Boley on the outside he will be a tackle machine (another Demeco Ryans). This also lets Brooking move back outside where he belongs. Connor may not be the most athletic LB in this draft but he has the instincts of one. You just don t lead PSU(linebacker U) in career tackles by luck, the guy can play and may be the most natural linebacker in this draft. A steal at this spot.

Flacco- Need I saw more, we need a QB and one with a fresh face that can exite this franchise. Redman will do O.K. at the beginning of the season but is not capable to lead us in the future. Flacco can be that guy. Matt Ryan comes at too high a price and the same chance of being a bust. I do like Brohm but I feel we would have to give up a little too much for him to grab him in the first. This team has many needs and we need our picks, That s why I like the option with the intention to keep all our picks and if Brohm does fall to round two, then great we have a great player and If he doesn t Flacco (who IMO will be a great player and has huge potential) will be there.

Collins- During the past college season Collins was looked at as one of the top tackles in this class(possibly a round 1). This is not the case now because of his combine.Collins is massive(6 5 320) and he still is a great player that blocked for a QB who had a great season and got Heisman consideration(really a Kansas QB in the Heisman talk?? Kudos to Collins). He is very raw but that can only mean he will get better. I really like Collins as a prospect in the 2nd round, following right behind the top 4 of Long, Clady, Otah, and Williams he could be a great tackle for us.

Molden- Small school corner but rising fast, could even be a mid second round pick if a team really wants him and thinks he is the real deal, but I just think there are so many other corners that will be taken in round two(Flowers, Cason, Godfrey, King, Porter) therefore Molden may slip through the cracks. He got great size at 6 0 200 lbs and runs a 4.4. Also had great combine numbers w/ a 37.5 vert, 23 in the bench press and broad jump of 10 9. I know numbers are not everything but this guy can play. Huge upside. these guys are a little corny but its a good video to see Molden if you never have before.

Hubbard- I know WR is not a major need, but here Hubbard is a value pick and will be great receiver in the NFL. We would finally have a big consistent receiver that can catch the football and can be that redzone threat (unlike Michael Jenkins). Hubbard is a big guy at 6'2 221 and ran a 4.38 at his pro day. With Roddy developing into a true #1 and playmaker, Laurent and Hubbard would let us have a pretty good receiving core to go along with our power running game. Hubbard also does an excellent job blocking as well. Great pick, another steal.

Davis- More of the athletic tight end that can stretch the field. Great athlete but not a great blocker (the signing of Hartstock will get this job done).

Brown-Brown played a huge part in App. states two titles. He anchored their line for 4 season and won the SoCon lineman of the year back to back these past 2 season. Great attitude and a hard worker, was seen many times chasing players downfield, never gave up on a play. Will make a terrific guard in the NFL. Good size at 6'6 310 with 32 reps at the combine. Good speed as well with a 5.16 40.

Rinehart-Im a little higher on Brown but between these two guys, I think you cant go wrong with either. Rinehart is a little more polished but Brown has the mean streak and heart. Both are terrific run blockers and would be a solid players for many years. Rinehart has the capability of playing tackle as well. He is 6'5 315, ran a 5.26 and had 26 bench reps.

Vobora- I love this guy. Again from a school with not too much competition but this guy is a true football player. Really gets after it. He had 134 tackles and 2 sacks last season in just 12 games. Ran a 4.59 and has that attitude where he will not come off the field. Great replacement for Brooking when he decides to hang it up and for now can be a great special teams guy.

Lynch- played FS at App State for both there Championships so he is a winner.Great leader for their defense. Also recorded 24 int. in 56 games so this guy is a ballhawk. Not blistering 40 speed but good enough at his position and size (6 0 202 4.55). Can be a good backup and solid ST guy.You may remember Lynch as the guy that blocked the feild goal against Michigan and also was the one who returned it.

Thompson- played in the ACC so the competition is there. Has good size and speed at 6 4 265 w/ a 4.73 40. Can sub in for Anderson or Abraham if the need a breather, after Chauncey of course. This pick simply adds depth in building a top D-line.

Alternate picks- If we don t take Dorsey or if he is gone and Long is there and we take him at 3, then instead of Collins, I think we pick Dre Moore the DT out of Maryland. Very Athletic and strong, scouts also loved him in the drills.


FA signings- Jayson Foster, returner, 4.28, played at Georgia southern and put up great numbers. Could be a star just doesn t have the size only 5 9 170 (reminds me of dante hall)


...this kid is sick

i'd rather pass up connor and take a lineman with that 1st 2nd pick. i hear there will be a much better selection of lbs next year. we could probably take one in the 1st then.

yeah, LB from OSU. the wrestler Animal's son, pretty good LB.
