NFL Draft 2016: Where all five of the Falcons' picks fall

New, comments

The NFL released the complete draft order.

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The full draft order is now out, and it's a good reminder of where the Falcons are actually going to be picking in April.

The team is down a 5th and 6th round pick due to Decibacle, when the Falcons were pumping fake crowd noise into the Georgia Dome, and due to the Andy Levitre trade. You can insert your own snide comments about neither of those being worth it, but I'll refrain.

We've said this all offseason, but I'll harp on it again now: It's absolutely critical that the Falcons don't mess this class up. With limited picks already, a couple of bad misses in the first four rounds are going to be very damaging for a team that wants to fancy itself a contender by 2017 at the latest.

A reminder that the draft kicks off on April 28, so you have less than a month to prepare. The full draft order is here.
