How can the Atlanta Falcons screw up the 2018 NFL Draft?

Fact: Thomas Dimitroff has watched every season of The Mindy Project ... twice

The Atlanta Falcons still have about a month and a half to prepare for the 2018 NFL Draft. That’s a long time, especially given all the work they’ve already put in. They more or less addressed the right guard situation in free agency, so they should be able to focus on bolstering the interior defensive line in the draft. That’s the logical approach, at least if you’re asking the vocal majority.

All this draft chatter begs an important question: how can the Falcons screw this up? By now general manager Thomas Dimitroff has more than enough street cred. But let’s be honest, he’s whiffed on occasion, just as all experienced GMs do from time to time. And scouting is an inexact science, riddled with human error. The Falcons will, of course, do their due diligence, but they could mess this up.

So tell me, Falcoholics, how could the Falcons drop the figurative ball April 26th-28th? What’s their recipe for disaster?
