I lied about the 3.0, I'm not sure how many mock I have done but thats besides the point. If you want to see more of my Falcons, Braves, Hawks, Georgia Tech, and random sports thoughts follow me on twitter @MrWright_21
This is a mock draft, I will not assume the Falcons sign anymore key free agents that can change what they do in the draft. Here we go.
Round 1: Arthur Brown, LB, Kansas State
Arthur Brown is one of my favorite players at the end of round 1. I REALLY like Eifert, Ogletree, and Rhodes but realistically they will probably be gone before the Falcons are on the clock. Brown may be too but I think he will slide to 30. He can play inside or outside so the versatility is welcomed by Mike Nolan. He has good coverage skills and doesn't have many weaknesses other than some question his size.
Round 2: Darius Slay, CB, Mississippi State
Slay is one of my favorite value corners in the draft good snag here to fill in the CBs.
Round 3: Corey Lemioner, DE, Auburn
As much as I want to go Swope with this pick, I know the Falcons have to snag a DE in the first few rounds.
Round 4: Vance McDonald, TE, Rice
The poor man's Eifert, I'm interested to see what this guy could do in the NFL could be a long term option if all goes right.
Round 4: Tyrann Mathieu, CB, LSU
The Falcons have a strong enough locker room to handle an attitude like this, I think he is turning it around and the honey badger could bring that killer instict to the locker room.
Round 5: Marcus Lattimore, RB, South Carolina
Why not? He gets to sit behind a seasoned vet for a year or two and soak it all in, can take over for real when he is 110%. He would have been the best running back in the draft had he been healthy. Hes got something to prove.
Round 6: Rod Sweeting, CB, Georgia Tech
This is the last corner I swear, Sweeting is a raw player with alot of potential and showed some promise under Al Groh's complicated defensive schemes.
Round 7: Connor Vernon, WR, Duke
I really like this kid, think he can be like Swope and turn out to be a good slot reciever. And in the 7th round? Why not.
Round 7: TJ Barnes, DT, Georgia Tech
Space eating DT that gives the d-line a little more depth.
Round 7: Theo Riddick, RB, Notre Dame
Can play RB and slot, versatility, thats what I'm looking for in the 7th.
Round 7: Sean Renfree, QB, Duke
Here is a good backup to pair with Davis who is a hardworking player. If Matt Ryan ever goes down(knock on wood), this guy would be solid for the time being.
Tear me to shreds
