View Full Version : Mock Draft

03-17-2007, 09:12 PM
One I made. Never made a 3 round mock so it is a little shakey. Leonard fell a good bit and a couple players went a bit off draft position.

Couple things-

-I got Jimmy at FS, and that is further explained in the 'Reason' for picking Josh Wilson.

-Since we are running a more traditional scheme, don't be suprised for Ojinnaka to take over at guard instead of him being at tackle. I don't think Clabo played bad either.

-Really didn't mean to put OL off, the values just weren't there.

-Tell me if I left someone off the mock, or if I gave a guy to a team who signed someone at the position. I worry about that.

-Please read my 'reasons' before commenting so I don't have to explain.

-Comments appretiated.

Falcons Mock Draft
Round 1: Jamaal Anderson, DE Arkansas...6'6/ 288/ 4.80
Reason: An amazing talent, I was surprised I had Anderson falling to 10. But really, it isn't unlikely at all if you look at the top 10, and add in that Adam Carriker has surpassed him on many peoples boards. An amazing athlete who was originally recruited to Arkansas as a WR, Anderson has just about everything you look for in a defensive end. He is extremely raw, and is likely a boom or bust pick. The tools however, are too enticing. His strength needs to be worked on in the weight room, but his height, bulk, and athleticism are all exceptional. Good value.

Round 2: Josh Wilson, CB/ RS Maryland...5'9/ 188/ 4.38
Reason: This pick is sure to disappoint some people, but I would be fine with it. It is clear we have pressing needs at either corner or safety, depending on Jimmy Williams, and we can not 'hope' a good prospect is available in round 3. With the signing of Lewis Sanders and comments by Internet sites and DeAngelo Hall, I think there is a strong possibility we move Jimmy Williams to safety. Wilson is an amazing athlete, one who can run down the field with anyone, and plays extremely physical for his size. Outside of height, Wilson has everything I look for in a CB. He has the speed, the hips, the aggressive mentality, the bulk, and the intelligence. People who say he will fall just due to his size are mistaken- CB Tye Hill (Round 1, pick 13) and CB Tim Jennings (Round 2, pick 62) are just 2 recent examples of undersized cornerbacks going high in the draft, and I can bring up past ones if necessary. Hill is in the mid 5'9 range and is 185 pounds; Jennings is 5'8 and 186 pounds. To boot, Wilson is also a excellent return man and had an exceptional senior season.

Round 3: Michael Bush, RB Louisville...6'1/ 243/ ???
Reason: Not a huge fan of this pick, but I am a huge believer that we need a runningback and the pickings were slim at this pick. Bush, if he returns to good health, could be an amazing runningback. He has speed, power, size, hands; pretty much everything. But someone who still can't run at this point scares me off a bit. Petrino, no doubt, likes the kid and will obviously have a say in who we draft. All in all, this is a risky pick that could turn out amazing or, if things go the wrong way, completely flop.

Round 4: Josh Gattis, S Wake Forest...6'1/ 206/ 4.55
Reason: I view the backup SS a bit differently than others. I don't think Crocker is the future. I think he is gone after this year. He is fine depth at both S positions but is nothing but short term. Meanwhile, Gattis is a safety with a ton of potential who could be the future at SS. He is a solid all around player who has the speed and size to make you wonder how good he could be. Also, he is an excellent special teams player. He lead the ACC in ST tackles in 2005 with 15.

Round 4: Martrez Milner, TE/ H-Back Georgia...6'4/ 252/ 4.79
Reason: Milner might get some hate, due to lots of Georgia University fans on here, but he could be pretty good in a scheme like ours. He has/had some problems with concentration on catching the ball, but his size and athleticism is intriguing for a TE/ H-Back role. He has the ideal bulk for the position, and when lined up wide or at TE can attack the seam. He has a lot of potential, and could be a situational H-Back for us if he can just improve his concentration on catching balls.

Round 4 (compensation): Gabe Hall, OT Texas Tech...6'4/ 313/ 4.91
Reason: Hall has it all when you just look at the numbers. He runs a sub-4.5 40-yard-dash, and he does it at 6'4 and 313 pounds. His weight is about ideal for a lineman IMO, between 310-320, because it isn't smallish for a lineman but not overweight either. He has a lot of repetitions in pass protection due to the scheme he ran in college, and could potentially play either G or C in the pros. I have him at tackle while Ojinnaka moves to guard.

Round 5: Dustin Fry, OL Clemson...6'3/ 314/ 5.19
Reason: A versatile player who can play center or guard, Fry would be a good pick here. He has outstanding strength and is a mauler, his size is great as well. He has a great push in the run game and has a lot of tools in an offensive lineman, but he is raw and his body could be maxed out. I would be very happy picking him up here.

Round 6: Chandler Williams, WR Florida International...5'11/ 184/ 4.42
Reason: While we improved our WR core with Joe Horn, another addition wouldn't hurt. I believe we keep at least 5 WRs on the active roster, and I want each of those WRs to fight for the spot. Adam Jennings is a good all around special teamer, but he hasn't proven himself as a WR and he needs to be able to play the position for when we line up with 5 wide recievers. Williams is a similar guy, a quick player with good speed who can be a return man. He might not have the grit Jennings has, but he has more experience catching the ball, with over 60 receptions in 2005 and 2006, and 203 for his 4 year career. Worth a look.

Round 7 (compensation): Andrew Wellock, K Eastern Michigan
Reason: This could also be an UDFA, but I didn't want to do all that. He has a very nice leg and his accuracy isn't shabby either. I wouldn't be opposed to a 6th or even 5th round kicker if Medlock's character issues are squared away, but Wellock wouldn't disappoint me either. One thing is for sure though- we need a guy who can kick 50 yards. No more punting while on our 35. No more having our punter being the long field goal kicker.

I would like to have Frye from Virginia Tech at some point for an OT, I think he's really underrated. As far as the other guys, I really like Wilson and I think he'd be a good pick, however with Ugoh on the board he would be hard to pass on as well as Eric Weddle. I would prolly take either one of those over Wilson, but I do really like Wilson as well. I would rather take Weddle in round 2 and then take Courtney Brown in round 4 in Gattis' spot.

I would have taken Ugoh, but I had him to Houston.

Weddle I like, but I don't think he gos quite that high. I always overestimate S values and probably still did (4 in round 1, a few more in round 2).
