Round 2: CB Jalen Collins, LSU

CB. LSU. JALEN COLLINS. B+. Jalen Collins will be a great addition to the Atlanta Falcons’ secondary. With Vic Beasley drafted yesterday to improve the pass rush, GM Thomas Dimitroff now turns to the defensive backfield with Collins. He has a blend of size and speed and he has a ton of upside. He needs time to develop in Dan Quinn’s system, so don’t expect him to make a major impact right away, but the potential is certainly there. This guy can play. The concern is that Collins has only made 10 career starts, but the raw talent is there. Overall, I like this pick a lot. Collins is a first round player and the Falcons have got him in the second. Dimitroff has made a great start to the 2015 NFL Draft.

Round 3: RB Tevin Coleman, Indiana

TEVIN COLEMAN. A+. Are the Atlanta Falcons having the best draft of any team in the NFL? They could well be. What great value for the Falcons here in the third round. Tevin Coleman out of Indiana is an explosive back who can do it all. He will be the starting running back for sure on this offense. He has a blend of speed and power and he can help out on the ground and in the air. Devonta Freeman has a ton of potential, and he now has a powerhouse teammate in Coleman. We all know how good the Falcons’ passing game is, but it’s time to take notice of their ground game. A+ pick to what is becoming an A+ draft for Atlanta.. RB. Indiana

Next: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
