NFL 2023 Mock Draft: Falcons land numerous defensive linemen
Rd. 4, Pk. 110: Kobie Turner – DL – Wake Forest (6’3″, 290 lbs)
Bringing in defensive linemen needs to be a priority for the Atlanta Falcons this offseason, thus why three of the first four picks are defensive linemen—it is the biggest weakness on the team.
Kobie Turner would join the likes of Grady Jarrett and Ta’Quon Graham on the interior of the defensive line. Turner has a lot of strength which will certainly translate to the NFL and should give him a relatively smooth transition into the NFL.
It is worth noting that this pick is the last of the return on Julio Jones from when he was traded to the Titans in 2021.
Rd. 4, Pk. 113: A.T. Perry – WR – Wake Forest (6’5″, 205 lbs)
Adding a receiver who is six-foot-five to a group that already has a six-foot-five Drake London and a six-foot-six Kyle Pitts would terrifying.
The Falcons clearly need a second receiver and Perry can be that. The main knock on Perry is his route running but everything else about his game is excellent. He clearly has the size to win jump balls, he can catch just about anything, and he has playmaking ability when he gets the ball in his hands.
