FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. – Today’s Early Bird Report includes a way too early projected 2020 mock draft as well as Matt Ryan’s inclusion in a list of veterans helped most by the draft.

Given how completely wrong most mock drafts are in the days ahead of the NFL Draft, it’s astoundingly futile to try to project the first round one year out. And yet, that’s where we are.

ESPN’s Todd McShay understands that his projected 2020 mock draft isn’t going to turn out to be accurate, so he instead is viewing this as an opportunity to introduce fans to some of the early top prospects for next year’s draft. He also is basing the order of the draft on Football Outsiders’ early projected records for the 2019 season.

That projection has the Falcons selecting at No. 12, and McShay believes they will address the defensive line with their first pick, drafting Purdue defensive tackle Lorenzo Neal.

“The son of longtime NFL fullback Lorenzo Neal, this 315-pounder would help in the middle of a Falcons line potentially losing Grady Jarrett after the 2019 season,” McShay writes. “He made 30 tackles, including three for loss, last season.”

If we pick 12th who knows what the new coach and GM would prioritize.

They would want to adopt offensive and defensive schemes that would require a near-total turnover of the Falcons' roster.

It's the Falcons' way.....

I don’t know much about him.  You think he is a stud?

Looks like a nice prospect.  

McShay has 8 BAMA guys in 1st round.  First two picks are qb and wr.  Are y’all that talented next year?
