The Atlanta Falcons are squarely in the playoff picture, but will have holes to fill and necessary upgrades this offseason. In the best interest of preparedness, I offer version 3 of my full, Atlanta Falcons mock NFL Draft.
The upcoming offseason is possibly the biggest in head coach Dan Quinn’s tenure. He has molded a roster that has some obvious talent but still may be a few critical pieces from truly reaching their potential. This upcoming NFL Draft will be a prominent hub for the Atlanta Falcons to make such critical additions and further elevate the team.
Thanks an offense that scores on the regular and an improving defense, the 2016 Falcons are sitting pretty in the playoff picture. Offense is clearly the strength of this team but the defense does feature a few assets.

Edge rusher Vic Beasley Jr. is a rising star, speedy linebacker Deion Jones has found his way into the Defensive Rookie of the Year conversation, and rookie strong safety Keanu Neal has established a reputation as a hard-hitting enforcer. Additionally, the Falcons’ defense features key veterans Desmond Trufant and Robert Alford in the secondary and Grady Jarrett along the defensive line.
Like I said, the defense is improving but still has a few holes. Holes that need to be addressed in addition to some fine tuning on the offensive side of the ball.
