Mock Draft #1

Recommended Posts

I decided to wait till after the major FA period before doing a Mock.

I am happy right now to do one as we won't be changing much between now and the draft.

I will be posting highlights with the picks but if you really want to judge a prospect look at full games.

Round 1:

Khalil Mack OLB, Buffalo

Give us the defensive playmaker we need to establish a good defense, provides Nolan with a Versatile player to run his defense. Doesn't need much breakdown as everyone knows about him.

Compares to Von Miller

Round 2:

Morgan Moses OT, Virginia

This is why we go pass rusher first as I believe there is a lot more depth at OT than DE.

Moses becomes an immediate starter at RT for us. Very good pass blocker and ok run blocker but we are a pass first team so protecting #2 is the biggest issue with our team.

Compares to Ryan Clady

Round 3:

Terrance Brooks FS, FSU

This guy becomes our FS starter day 1, he has the range to play deep middle and can tackle better than DeCoud (isn't saying much). His range allows Moore to play a lot more in the box and lets Nolan blitz and not have to worry about being beaten deep. If he had better hands he would be a 1st round pick as he is always near the ball.

Compares to Louis Delmas

Round 4:

Daniel McCullers NT, Tennassee

We need another NT, having Soiali is great but if he gets hurt our entire defense has to change as we have no anchor when we are running 3-4 looks. We saw how much losing KB killed our playbook the same will happen if we lose Soiali.

Compares to Shaun Rogers

Round 5:

Marion Grice RB, Arizona State

Grice will give us a **** of a weapon on offense he will excel in the hurry up offense and be a matchup nightmare for opposing defenses. He has the ability to line up at WR and cannot be covered by a Lber which will force a safety on the field or give our outside guys 1 on 1 coverage. I also believe Justin Vaughn could be the power back we want in the future.

Compares to Shane Vereen

Round 6:

Jay Prosch FB, Aurburn

We need a FB that can stay healthy and Prosch is a sledge hammer and explodes the point of attack.

Round 7:

Jalen Saunders WR, Oklahoma

Time to pick up a return Specialist, Saunders will give our return game some speed. Kid can play isn't ideal size but that is ok for a guy who will be used primarily as a returner

Compares to Marquise Goodwin.

Depth Chart:

Offense

QB: Matt Ryan, Seth Dodge

RB: Steven Jackson, Marion Grice, Justin Vaughn, Antone Smith

RG: Jon Asomoah, Garrett Reynolds

RT: Morgan Moses, Mike Johnson

Defense (3-4 look):

DE: Jonathon Babineux, Malliciah Goodman

NT: Paul Soiali, Daniel McCullers

DE: Tyson Jackson, Cory Peters

ROLB: Khalil Mack, Johnathon Massaqui, Joplo Bartu

MLB: Sean Weatherspoon, Paul Warrilow, Akeem Dent

LOLB: Kroy Biermann, Stansly Mopanga

CB: Desmond Trufant, Robert Alford, Robert McClain, FA(Possibly Champ)

Defense (4-3 look):

DE: Johnathon Massaqui, Stansly Moonga

Feedback would be great (you may have noticed no Osi as I don't think he will be on our team next year if we get a pass rusher in round 1.

We need a backup NT

Was a need pick.

He's not good. His size doesn't mean he's good. That's what fans see. If that were the case, Clifton Geathers would be a good player. That's who McCullers will end up being. If he was good, he wouldn't be a 4th round pick.

I think your 4-3 lineup is off.

DE: Tyson Jackson, Corey Peters

DT: Paul Soiali, Daniel McCullers

DT: Johnathon Babineux, Kroy Beirmann

DE: Johnathon Massaqui, Stansly Moonga

I think it will look more like this.

Also your 3-4 look is really a 3-3 look.

Babs is a much better pass rusher than Jackson

I'd argue only against Grice.

Grice is three months removed from a leg injury. He claims he's entirely healthy at this point yet couldn't go at the combine or the ASU Pro Day, saying it was just a matter of conditioning. If that was true, you'd think he'd allow a medical exam by someone other than the ASU team doctor, but he hasn't, and the ASU doctor declines to comment citing confidentiality issues. As an alternative to Grice, I'd take a long look at other backs that might drop to the fifth, or a later round TE with good blocking skills. Arthur Lynch and Crockett Gilmore could be there at the top of the fifth.

I can tell you for a fact that the Falcons were impressed by Gilmore at the Senior Bowl, both on the field and in his interview.

.

Man, that just made me jump a little. That dude is like Mark Bavarro. Many don't know it, but it was a play back in '89 that got me really hooked on football. I was already a Falcons fan, but I could miss games and be just fine. (Was 14 a kind of new to being a football fan). Mark Bavarro is what football was intended to be. Gilmore reminds me of him.

Pretty good mock. Mack seems to be the consensus No. 1, so I'm cool with him. You're 2nd and 3rd rd picks seems to be solid selections as well but McCullers is a bad move. You're falling in love with size and not his skill. There's nothing Shaun Rogers about him. He's not as explosive and certainly not as disruptive.

Whoa, we are real close in our projections....

I do think Charles Sims is more likely, our coaches spent some time with him.
