With the first day of the 2015 NFL Draft finished, we can now look ahead to what remains in days two and three. When will the Atlanta Falcons hit the clock in each round?
A huge weight feels like it has been lifted off the city of Atlanta, as the Falcons have found themselves a pass rusher in Vic Beasley.
It was the move many wanted, and Beasley fell straight to the Falcons at No. 8. GM Thomas Dimitroff gladly picked up the all-time sack leader from Clemson.
While the first round is crucial, and teams can find real game-changers there. Despite that, the rounds from here on can be just as, if not more important.

The best teams find players in the mid-rounds who go unnoticed that go onto become regular starters, or even stars in the team.
Tom Brady, Richard Sherman and Russell Wilson are all examples of players who weren’t selected on day one but have gone on to make some noise in the NFL. I could probably list examples all day.
So who will the Falcons take on day two and three?
Here is a list of the picks they own, barring any trades, which is always possible with Thomas Dimitroff.

With Beasley now in the mix, what position do you think the Falcons should turn to next? Should they stick with defense? And if so, which position?
Some of the notable names still available are defensive end Randy Gregory, defensive tackle Eddie Goldman and safety Landon Collins.
Maybe Dimitroff will turn to the offensive side of the football and pickup wide receiver Jaelen Strong or offensive tackle Jake Fisher.
It’s impossible to know for sure, but it’s going to be interesting to find out. Stay tuned here at Blogging Dirty as we will have plenty of reaction immediately following the Falcons’ pick.
