2011 NFL Draft the Falcons select: ?



Once again, I have represented our Atlanta Falcons in a community mock draft at our sister site


http://www.mockingthedraft.com/2011/1/22/1950851/results-on-community-mtd-mock-draft-and-info-on-the-next-one

With the real NFL draft being 3 months away, only the first two rounds were "mocked" by our group of "draft geeks"

27. Atlanta Falcons -  Kyle Rudolph, TE, Notre Dame

Tony Gonzalez has become a vital part of the Falcons offense. Alas, it appears his short stay in Atlanta will be coming to an end very soon.  Randolph is clearly the best TE in this draft, and we are hoping for a seemless transition either in 2011, or 2012.

Note: a TE has been selected in the first round every one of the last 10 drafts, and even though Randolph only played half the season due to injury, he is the exact same size as the Cowboys' Jason Whitten at  6-6, 265 with an approximate 40-yard-dash time of 4.6.

59. Atlanta Falcons - DeMarcus Love, OT, Arkansas

One could argue that the Patriots, Colts, and Steelers have been the best teams over the last 5-10 yrs, however all three also have the same achilles heal, OLine.  The Falcons will do what it takes to ensure Matt Ryan becomes the next great QB.

OT DeMarcus Love, Arkansas: Razorback quarterback Ryan Mallett's blindside protector, a three-year starting OT was being asked to switch sides throughout the game in 2010 ( and was switching stances ) so that he was always the uncovered tackle (no TE help).
