4th Round-110th Overall Pick
Now that we have addressed the major defensive line issues as well as a little secondary help, now it’s time to draft an insurance policy.
Takk McKinley is a monster. I love his passion and I love how he plays with a constant chip of his shoulder. He recently underwent a medical evaluation and even though this is not a career ending situation, it would be in the best interest of the team to draft more depth for the defensive line.
Enter Anthony Nelson
He’s enters the draft as a defensive end but has the size to be play defensive tackle in the NFL (6’7” 271 pounds). He doesn’t possess elite athleticism, but he has lots of moves to make plays and he is also a solid tackler.
If by chance….and I mean by chance the Falcons decide to get some help on the offensive line. Tytus Howard would be a good pick here.
The thing about offensive lineman is that you can come from any school and be drafted in any round and still come into the NFL and be great unlike most positions.
He a big body who can play either tackle or guard at the next level which makes him versatile to play any position the Falcons need him to play.
