Rings Posted April 10, 2015 Share Posted April 10, 2015 Bored and rather than the normal mock, I figured I’d shake it up some. A few teams have made noise about possibly trading up for talent…I have the Falcons trading back with them to add more picks in this years draft. I know this is highly unlikely, darn near impossible, but I figured it be fun to dream of fixing our team in one off season. Included points for each pick as well. The scary thing is, we have the cap space to do this.Trade #1Atlanta – 8th – 1,400Miami – 14th – 1,110 + 46th – 440WR ahead of St. Louis, already rumored to have called teams trying to get into the top 10 for a wide receiver. This one is actually very possible.Trade #2Atlanta – 14th – 1,110Philly – 20th – 850 + 52nd - 380QB ahead of Houston, with Winston and Mariotta gone, Philly will reach for a QB in fear that Houston will take the 3rd ranked QB.Trade #3Atlanta 20th – 850Indy – 29th – 640 + 61st – 292Indy is in win now mode with a huge need at RT, assuming Cleveland takes either T.J Clemmings or D.J. Humphries at 19, the other will be the next pick. Atlanta picks:1-29: OLB – Eli HaroldOur LEO spot is filled for the next few years. Not an elite pass rusher day one, but has to tools to become one.2-42: TE –Maxx WilliamsBest tight end in the draft fills a huge need here, one more passing threat for Matt.2-46: MLB – Paul DawsonQB of the Defense, trouble in the locker room will have arguably the best MLB drop to the 2nd round.2-52: WR – Devin SmithSlide White to the slot, now have two WR that can take the top off a defense on play action.2-61: DE - Nate OrchardAnother solid pass rusher to go opposite Harold.3-73: G – Ali MarpetHuge upgrade at a spot we need a ton of help in, fits the ZBS perfect.4-107: RB – David JohnsonOur big back to complement Freeman, can also catch out of the back field.5-146: S – Durell EskridgeWon’t be starter year one most likely but would be our FS next year, huge upside.6-185: CB – Nick MarshallAnother developmental piece here, could be nickel corner this year or RCB next.7-225: OG/RT – Tayo FabulujeExtremely strong, needs work on technique. Could play a variety of spots. Depth pick here.7-249: OLB – Ryan DelaireAnother piece to develop, a lot of upside here as well, would be backup to Harold at the LEO to keep Kroy on ST.
