5th Round-141st Overall Pick
Deion Jones went down last year for the Falcons and the defense collapsed. There were missed plays and missed tackles all over the field.
A good pickup for the Dirty Birds would be linebacker Tre Watson out of Maryland. He always found himself around the football making plays. He racked up 108 tackles his senior season and had a much underrated 5 interceptions.
If they want even more depth on the offensive line, Oli Udoh from Elon would also be a good value pick here. Udoh is another one of those big body lineman (6’5” 336 pounds) that can play either tackle or guard spot and is great in run protection, which could do nothing but help the run game to take some pressure off of Matt Ryan which we want to do.
Alex Mack is getting up in age and drafting a solid center to learn under one of the best in the league wouldn’t be a bad idea.
Darryl Williams from Mississippi State would be a tremendous grab here. He’s one of those tenacious and physical lineman who thrive on contact. He is on the short side (6’2”) for a lineman but he can work that to his advantage by keeping a low center of gravity.
