Clayton Mullins
6-0/239 Miami OH
4.64 Senior

Pros: Has good speed and shows nice quickness. Can make plays in pursuit. Capable tackler and does a nice job at the point of attack. Decent in coverage.

Cons: Lacks burst and doesn't have ideal closing speed. Will take some poor angles to the ball. Gets stuck in traffic and has trouble shedding blocks. Will miss some stops in the open field.

Overview: Entered the season the higher rated player between him and teammate Joey Hudson, but I don't think he's quite the NFL prospect despite his production at Miami. He just doesn't really excel in any area.

NFL Forecast: Mullins is a marginal NFL prospect that has to make an impact on special teams to stick at the next level. He has good speed, and does everything OK, and is a nice collegiate player. But that doesn't cut it at the next level and can't really match up in coverage or at the point of attack. Doesn't have great instincts, nor does he have the size and toughness that most undersized prospects have. He might have a shot at competing as an inside linebacker in the 3-4 scheme or as a weakside back in the 4-3.

ATL Forecast: Mullins could push for time but is a long shot to make the roster. Unless he can make an impact on special teams, he's at best a practice squad player that lacks upside that makes him likely to stick in the league or the Falcons for more than a year or two.

Value: He is worth bringing to camp to see if he can challenge a bubble player, but don't draft him.
