The 2015 NFL Draft will kick off from Chicago next week. Who are the draft analysts projecting to the Atlanta Falcons in the first round?

The draft will run from April 30-May 2, and the Falcons currently own one pick in the first six rounds, with two picks in the seventh.

It is expected the Falcons will look to pickup one of the premier pass rushers with the eighth overall pick, but it ultimately is down to who is picked before them.

Among the top prospects are Vic Beasley, Dante Fowler and Randy Gregory. Beasley and Fowler could be gone by No. 8, while Gregory admitted to testing positive for marijuana at the NFL Scouting Combine in February.

A lot will change between now and draft day on April 30, and nobody knows the Falcons’ plan like general manager Thomas Dimitroff.

Who are the experts predicting will be heading to Atlanta with the eighth overall pick?
