I have a confession:
I’m addicted to mock drafts. Which also means that I think there is never a bad time for one. Seven weeks into the 2016, the Falcons are sitting at 4-3 with a productive offense, a defense that is still growing and a work-in-progress, and a roster from top-to-bottom that is without a doubt better than it was at this time last year. However that doesn’t mean that the roster is still in need of an upgrade at key positions.
At this point of the season, some of the key positions that are in need of upgrade or may possibly seen an upgrade during the offseason are defensive end, offensive guard, offensive tackle, and defensive interior linemen.
So with the Atlanta Falcons close at the halfway point of the 2016 season, let’s unwrap a fresh 2017 mock draft for the Atlanta Falcons.
