Another Way To Early Mock Draft


Recommended Posts

at least a 10 win season, range between 18 and 22.

Round 1: Su'a Cravens S (USC)

Assuming our D-line will play better under Quinn as head coach we need to still add more talent to the defensive side of the field. Moore is getting old, I do like our current safeties but competition breeds excellence. Adding Craven to the mix would strengthen our defense as a whole.

Round 2: Jonah Austin OT (LSU)

We have a whole at RT. Schreidder is pegged the starter right now, who knows how that will go with our new zone blocking scheme. He might be a perfect fit there. If our O-line plays better then I would probably go with a straight up 4-3 defensive end here, but my first instinct says pick up a right tackle.

Round 3: Bronson Kaufasi DE (BYU)

Don't see him getting this far, would be a still if he did. He provides more depth and definitely more athleticism to the defensive front.

Round 4: Sheldon Raukins DT (Louisville)

Babs is long in the tooth, matter fact all of our starting DTs are above the age of 30. Raukins is a great run stuffer who fits our scheme.

Round 5: (noise gate)

Round 5 (compensatory Corey Peters): D.J. Foster WR (Arizona St)

Former running back, great hands, excellent run after the catch guy who knows how to get open.

Round 5 (compensatory Sean Weatherspoon): Jay Rome TE (UGA)

Would love to see him in falcons red and black. He's the more traditional type of TE, what we need in our balanced offense.

Round 6:Brady Foltz OG (TCU)

Adds more depth and competition to the O-line.

Round 7: Trevor Kelly DT (California)

Depth at D-line

I don't know much about the guys so I can't comment on that but I don't think we are getting any comp picks next year. Yes we lost Spoon and Peters but we signed Durant and Reed to decent sized contracts. That is not including adding Clayborn and Schofield as well

Good point, Reed just by himself will probably cancel those two out.

1. Don't mock comp picks in f*cking June of the previous year. It doesn't get any more pointless than that.

2. Proofread. Proofread. Proofread. I love mock drafts, reading and writing them, but it's so clear when people just vomit on the screen and hit post.

"We have a whole at RT." Hole.

"Schreidder" Come on, man.

"Would be a still" Steal!

3. It's really hard to peg needs right now until we see the team under Quinn, so anything before the game against Philly seems pretty moot to begin with but adding another WR after the 3rd round seems extra silly to me. In fact, if none of the top FSs are there at our pick in the first, I'd probably prefer a dynamic WR than any other position. A DeAndre Hopkins does a lot more for this team as we prepare to lose Roddy. And as already stated, Cravens is a good pick if you're looking for a Cam Chancellor but between Moore and Ishmael we have that covered. We need our Earl Thomas and Ricardo Allen may just be him, but we don't know yet because it's not even Training Camp.

I usually make my first mock after all of preseason is over, the 53 has been assembled, and the PS has been assembled, but before game 1. I do admit though, that even then it's way early, but at least we have tape then. After that, I don't make another till after our 8th game. Things just change so much between the start of the season and the end, case and point, Kevin White WR WV, and Cody Prewitt S Ole Miss.

Early mocks are to be taken with a grain of salt anyway. Anything before the declarations are finalized are even a bit silly when you think about it. I can draft LeBron James in my mock if I want to, because until that deadline he can still declare. If you're going to put something out there though, at least make it worth reading. That's why I can't stand the people like Bierfann, Brown Bomber, and that sort that post thread after thread of these 'mocks' that half the time don't even list position let alone any kind of explanation behind the choices.

I once read a comment by an analyst, who said that, doing a mock before the combine, is like throwing a dart at a dart board, blindfolded, and while the dartboard moves around.

I do agree though, that if you're not going to put effort into making a mock worth reading, then you really shouldn't make one at all. Those that do that are really posting it for their own self satisfaction.

No one should ever post a mock, expecting it to be accurate, but rather, the goal should always be to stimulate discussion. If, however, you don't put in the proper effort, then you can't expect others to put in the effort to respond either.

First, off I will begin by saying we are all fans here.

IT'S AN ENTIRE F*CKING PAGE THAT SAYS "NFL DRAFT AND FREE AGENCY", YOU F*CKING MORON. YEA ITS JUNE, IF YOU DON'T LIKE PEOPLE COMMENTING ON "NFL DRAFT AND FREE AGENCY" STUFF IN JUNE, THEN GET THE F*CK OFF THE PAGE THEN!!! WHAT THE H*LL! WHY ARE YOU HERE??!!!

I'm not here to discuss language arts, grammar, or anything like that, if you knew the content of the message then that's all that matters. Nobody knows anything, and everything on this thread, INCLUDING YOU, are speculating early. Don't tell me not too, if you are going to proceed to do it immediately after. You think it's too early too mock and off season next year, but your making picks yourself, and if it's too early, why did you click the mouse, don't comment, DON'T WASTE !YOUR! TIME THEN, because I'm not wasting mine.

Dude, the title of the entire thread says "Way too early Mock Draft", it's not serious, I'm not the team GM, my first name ain't Moses or Jesus, and I write on paper not stone. If you feel that "1. Don't mock comp picks in f*cking June of the previous year. It doesn't get any more pointless than that." with the title saying "Way too early Mock Draft" then why the f*ck did you click on it! Why are you even navigating to the "NFL Draft and Free Agency" page?

We are all fans here, only people who know anything as far as real information is the people directly associated with the Atlanta falcons. That's true for June 2015 or April 2016. You don't know anything I don't know anything.

It's funny how you tell me it's ridiculous to speculate so early and then proceed to do your own speculation about the season immediately after saying its' a moot point.

It's a mock draft on a Atlanta falcons Free agency and NFL draft fan page. It's just a fan having fun, stating his concerns about his team as of right now. Of course he can't predict the future, of course it's early, he stated that.

Exactly, it should be taken with a grain of salt, not that serious...

I see reading comprehension can be added to the list of things to work on. You blow up because I tell you 'not to mock' when if you actually read what I wrote you would know that's not the case. I said don't mock comp picks. Comp picks, if you understand any of how they work, are based on playing time, performance, contract, and post-season honors - none of which can be judged before Training Camp. Also, over the last two years we've brought in a lot more than we've given out in terms of Free Agent talent so we likely won't be getting a comp pick in 2016 or 2017, and that's just something you're going to have to get used to. Read, then respond.

One of my biggest pet peeves is posters telling people that don't like their threads that they didn't have to click on it, and they didn't have to respond. You made the thread. No one forced you to make it. The very act of posting a thread is for the purpose of having people respond, you know, unless you're just a narcissist. If you don't like what people post in your thread, fine, then feel free to disagree, but the train of "didn't have to" starts with the OP, it always has.

Oh, and just to note, I'm applying this as a general statement, to all posters. I just happened to see it just now is all.

more irony

Another concept lost on the great poster known as Brown Bomber, who doesn't understand that posting a thread titled "Position Player Name" followed by YouTube highlight video provides absolutely no insight whatsoever and doesn't actually contribute to the board in any way whatsoever.

You are correct. I misread what you said as far as comp picks. Your still not getting my point, that isn't the number 1, 2 or 3 rule here as far as posting. Yes, I know how it works 'somewhat' and because of that you can estimate if you are getting comp picks or not early because it's based on those factors, just like you can estimate anything else. It was already stated that it's a good chance we don't receive them. I even responded to that. Maybe you should read other posts first before responding so you don't repeat things. So you really think you can't estimate time and performance, take a guess just like everything else?

My point is that this is a football discussion board, specifically a NFL draft and Free Agency discussion board.

Rule 1: "Don't mock comp picks in f*cking June of the previous year. It doesn't get any more pointless than that." on a Draft and Free agency discussion board is realistically rule 20 or 100 or not even a rule at all. It's not pointless, you deviating the conversation to something like that is. Five posts later, we aren't talking about who could fit where, what position is a strength or weakness. Where discussing rather someone should post comp picks in a "MOCK DRAFT" a "MOCK" fre@king draft... ITS A MOCK! So, we spend time discussing pointless stuff like that and the poster is the one at fault. I just wish people would keep it FOOTBALL related. That's what I'm saying. Again, a MOCK draft on a NFL draft discussion page, and were discussing rather comp picks should be included in June. That's the pointless part of the conversation. You brought that up.

Rule 2: "Proofread. Proofread. Proofread. I love mock drafts, reading and writing them, but it's so clear when people just vomit on the screen and hit post." Again, either a low rule or not even a rule at all if the posted content and message is understood. Another reason to not actually discuss FOOTBALL thanks to King Jigsaw. Five plus posts later he turned a Mock draft conversation into a spelling bee.

You don't like people who mock and don't explain, but people who do explain only thing you respond to is punctuation/spelling and the fact they included compensatory picks.... that's the pointless part of this, look at the next couple of posts after that. You brought that up, you led the conversation that way. A mock draft page and it's dominated by posts about spelling and rather compensatory picks should be included in a fre@king MOCK DRAFT IN JUNE 2015 for a draft that occurs in MAY 2016.

That's my point. Pointless people coming on here with NO points, calling other people who bring points to the conversation pointless.

This is not a "I don't like your thread player X is not right" "I don't like player Y", "You forgot we have player Z" type of thing, at least that's what you are leading it to be. This is I don't want to actually discuss football, lets talk spelling, lets' discuss not if we get them, but rather let's discuss rather we should debate compensatory picks at all, 'ON A FRE@KING DRAFT DISCUSSION BOARD', for which I said to him 'GET THE F*CK OFF THE BOARD!' I don't mind people 'not liking' what I posted.
