As I said in an earlier post, I think the Falcons should focus on three areas in this draft, because it will be difficult to successfully address more than 3 positions this year. Last year we had the benefit that we could pick the best player available. This year our needs are a bit more focused since expectations are higher going into this season than a year ago.
But I think these 3 positions:
Must be addressed in this draft. Other needs such as RB, WR, DT, TE, CB, etc. are areas that it would be nice to address, but none are that pressing that it would be a mistake if we did not.
So here's a mock draft I'm hopeful for:
1. Justin Tuck, DE, Notre Dame
2. Evan Mathis, G/T, Alabama
3. Donte Nicholson, S, Oklahoma
4. Chris McKenzie, CB, Arizona State
5a. Lorenzo Alexander, DT, Cal
5b. Chris Myers, G/C, Miami
6. Darren Sproles, RB, Kansas State
7. Alex Holmes, TE, USC
