Will The Falcons Draft A Mid-Round Surprise In 2014?

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

The Falcons have a habit of throwing curveballs in the middle rounds of the NFL Draft. Will they do it again this year.

Hat tip goes to reader Vebrand, who suggested that we solicit reader input for a surprise pick in the middle rounds of the 2014 NFL Draft. Henceforth, we will refer to that draft pick as a Thomas Dimitroff Special.

If you're confused, consider this: The Falcons have made a habit of selecting players in the third and fourth rounds who many analysts and fans consider reaches. The two most famous examples are probably Corey Peters, a surprise third round pick who has exceeded his draft status, and Lamar Holmes, another surprise third round pick who hasn't panned out just yet. Chris Owens was widely considered a surprise selection in the third round, as well, as was Akeem Dent.

So let's turn it over to you. Do you see a surprise in this year's third round, and if so, do you have a player in mind?
