Each of the four mock drafts at project the Falcons picking a pass-rusher. Here are there picks:

Rob Rang — OLB Vic Beasley, Clemson

Dane Brugler — DE Shane Ray, Missouri

Pete Prisco — OLB Vic Beasley, Clemson

Will Brinson — DE Randy Gregory, Nebraska

Beasley features twice here, and he would certainly be a perfect fit for the Falcons.

Between 2012 and 2014, Beasley recorded 89 tackles (52.5 of which were for a loss), nine defended passes and 33 sacks — according to Sports Reference.

These are incredible numbers, and he is the all-time sack leader at Clemson.

Not only would he be a great fit for the Falcons, Beasley has expressed his interest in playing for his childhood team.

Ray would be another solid option for the Falcons with the eighth-overall pick, as would Gregory.

There are off-the-field concerns surrounding Gregory, however. He admitted to testing positive for marijuana, and this is a huge red flag for teams. The talent is there to be selected in the top ten, but these concerns could drop him to the bottom of the first-round.
