Atlanta Falcons: Updated 2016 Mock Draft
Round 3, Pick 81: S Keanu Neal, 6’1 215 lbs, Florida
A heat seeking missile. Armed with NFL size and a mission to apply the “hit stick” to anything that moves. A safety who paints, reads Stephen King novels, and enjoys listening to hip-hop before games and pop music afterwards. Florida’s Keanu Neal is a little known secret at this point but don’t be surprised to hear his name a little more often post-Combine. Current Falcons safety William Moore could be a cap casualty this offseason. The addition of Neal give DQ an intimidator in his secondary who can apply great ability in the run support. Neal will have to sharpen his pass coverage a bit but having this type of presence on defense can do wonders.
Other names to consider: SS Miles Killebrew, DT Carl Nassib, OG Christian Westerman, OG Cody Whitehair, OG Joshua Garnett
