So here’s a question that bears pondering: What Matt Ryan Jersey 2019 , exactly, do the Falcons intend to do at guard this year?The answer cannot be “stand pat at both spots,” unless they want a fan mutiny on their hands. Wes Schweitzer and Brandon Fusco will no doubt compete, nominally, for the right guard job unless the Falcons make a major investment in the draft or free agency, but that move is more likely to come at left guard, where the Falcons benefitted from having Andy Levitre for a few quality seasons. I say nominally for that battle because it’s one Fusco will win, if he’s healthy, just as he did a year ago. But let’s consider the original, open-ended question, with no outright assumptions of Fusco or Schweitzer winning a job, Matt Gono competing, or Zane Beadles or Ben Garland coming back. What might the team do? Invest in free agencyThe Falcons last made a truly significant investment at guard when they acquired Andy Levitre. Before that, it was the addition of Jon Asamoah. Before that, it was鈥m. The Falcons haven’t exactly made guard a huge priority, not with the dollars being thrown at center and tackle. If those players are playing well and the team has at least one quality guard, as they did in 2016 with Andy Levitre, the line tends to be terrific. When Schweitzer struggled and Levitre got hurt in 2017, it was a problem. When Levitre got hurt, Fusco scuffled a bit and got hurt, and the team couldn’t sufficiently replace both guard spots, it got real ugly in 2018 before stabilizing late. It’s hard to draw too many lessons from a cascade of injuries the team couldn’t foresee, but aiming for younger or elite talent at the position would be a nice start. That means, potentially, scouring the free agent market. Rodger Saffold is a name I hope the Falcons will keep an eye on, but there are other appealing options if the Falcons want to go with a known quantity. Mike Iupati and Ramon Foster are fine players over 30 who could serve as the kind of one-to-two year stopgaps the Falcons were supposed to get with Fusco, while someone like Chance Warmack would be an interesting flier as a younger player who hasn’t been able to tap into his outsized upside. The likeliest might be J.R. Sweezy, who spent time as a Buccaneers guard and Seahawk and thus has ties to the current coaching staff. I could see one investment but you almost certainly won’t see two, and left guard remains the priority position .Draft a guard earlyThere are certainly options in this class. Those who remember Peter Konz will likely be wary at the very thought of the Falcons going for a Wisconsin guard in the second round, but there are two very good ones entering this class, and either one could be a plausible year one upgrade over Fusco and others at right guard. The first (and probably better) is Michael Dieter, while Beau Benzschawel could be had later. Chris Lindstrom from Boston College and Michael Jordan from Ohio State are also strong early round possibilities, and would (if all goes well) give the Falcons a four-plus year starter at a position they’ve taken to papering over. This would be my preferred option in many ways, especially because I’d like to see the Falcons cash in on a potentially great free agent defensive line class, but the risk is that whoever you select isn’t all that big of an upgrade over Schweitzer or Fusco in year one, if they are at all. Open things up to competitionThe Falcons will almost certainly do one of the above, but that still probably leaves an open guard spot. The best the Falcons can and likely will do is open that spot up to competition with as many options as possible. That’s because they have Fusco, Wes Schweitzer and Matt Gono under contract and could reasonably bring back either Ben Garland or Zane Beadles on the cheap, giving them a four man competition at the position. The winner of that competition will hardly be an inspiring choice, given Fusco’s return from injury, Schweitzer and Beadles’ run blocking woes and Gono’s inexperience, but upgrades at left guard and right tackle would make that an affordable, potentially palatable option. The Falcons did get by with Chris Chester at right guard (and heck, Schweitzer at right guard) for multiple seasons, after all.What do you imagine the Falcons will do? The season is over, and that means the official draft order for the 2019 NFL Draft is set for all 32 teams. That doesn’t affect the Falcons, but it does signal the official beginning of #DraftSzn for all fanbases. It’s something to celebrate, even if the actual Super Bowl was a huge bust.With the draft order finalized, it’s time to release my next mock draft into the wild. If you’d like to check out my previous mocks, you can find them here:First EditionSecond EditionThird EditionTo simulate this mock draft, I used Fanspeak’s On the Clock mock draft simulator. If you’d like to replicate the conditions of this mock Black Vic Beasley Jr Jersey , use the following settings: Fanspeak (Steve) big board, User-Voted team needs, Difficult setting.Off we go!Round 1, Pick 14: OT Jawaan Taylor, FloridaAt this spot in the draft, the Falcons are clearly hoping to benefit from someone falling to them. Luckily for Atlanta, the depth of this class is at OT, EDGE, and DT—a good value at one of those three positions is going to be there at pick 14. In this mock, DT Ed Oliver, EDGE Brian Burns, and OT Jonah Williams were all off the board, leaving me with a choice between OTs Cody Ford and Jawaan Taylor. It’s a tough call, but I’m giving the slight edge to Taylor here.At 6’5, 334, Taylor is a mountain of a man. He’s surprisingly nimble for a man of that size too, with plenty of mobility for the Falcons’ zone blocking scheme. Taylor is the complete package—a stalwart in pass protection and a mauler in the running game. Plus, he’s a far better RT—his natural position—than LT, which could allow him to slide a bit further than he should. I think Taylor is the most pro-ready OT after Williams, and he’d be able to come in and start at RT from day one for the Falcons. Dimitroff has said protecting Matt Ryan is the biggest priority this offseason, and adding a top-tier RT is the best way to do that.Round 2, Pick 45: EDGE Charles Omenihu, TexasWith Vic Beasley likely being cut this offseason and Brooks Reed already gone, the Falcons have a glaring need at EDGE opposite Takk. I fully expect Atlanta to sign the best FA available to them, but that’s not going to be enough on its own. Ever since Adrian Clayborn left, the Falcons have missed that big, inside/outside EDGE that Quinn loves in his defense. Enter Charles Omenihu from Texas, who might be the perfect player to fill that void.Omenihu is physically imposing at 6’6, 275, and was a bit of a late bloomer at Texas. He exploded in 2018 with 18 TFLs and 9.5 sacks, and I’d expect his stock to continue to rise over the offseason. Omenihu is ridiculously quick and flexible for a player of his size, and has demonstrated the ability to win at just about any spot on the defensive line. Technique wise, Omenihu still has plenty of room for refinement, but you can’t teach his ferocity and natural athletic gifts. Expect to see him connected more with the Falcons as we approach the draft—and don’t be surprised if he’s someone Atlanta targets with a trade-up in the early second.Round 3, Pick 79: C/G Erik McCoy, Texas A&MWith RT addressed in the first round, the Falcons still need to upgrade their guard spots—and getting a player that might be able to take over for Alex Mack in a few years would be a bonus. That’s why a prospect like Texas A&M C Erik McCoy makes a lot of sense.Coupling a sizable 6’3, 310 frame with excellent athletic ability, McCoy is a natural fit for the Falcons’ zone blocking scheme. He’s also got plenty of power to match those movement skills, making him a dynamic run blocker that is just as dangerous with his power. McCoy’s strength makes him difficult to move in pass protection, although his technique in that area still needs refinement. A logjam of quality interior OL in the Day 2 range could lead to someone like McCoy falling into the mid-3rd, which would be excellent value and fill a significant need for the Falcons.Round 4, Pick 117: DT Daylon Mack, Texas A&MFalcons fans, I’ve heard you. You want a big, run-stuffing NT to help out Atlanta’s struggling run defense. Instead of drafting that player on Day 2—sorry, Dexter Lawrence fans—I’m going to go after one with the Falcons’ first pick on Day 3. I have a feeling you’re going to like my choice, though: Texas A&M’s Daylon Mack.At 6’0, 320, Mack has plenty of bulk to take up space in the center of the DL. What makes Mack stand out, however Vic Beasley Jr Jersey 2019 , is his incredible burst and movement skills for a player of his weight. He is explosive at 320 pounds, and it’s really a sight to see. Technically, Mack is still pretty raw, but he’s made significant strides over the past season. Mack is probably best suited to an early-down run stuffing role—he’s very limited as a pass rusher—but his athletic traits make him a perfect fit at NT in a one-gap scheme like Dan Quinn’s.Round 4, Pick 138: RB Justice Hill, Oklahoma StateNow, in the middle of Day 3, come the “standby” picks. I’ll continue saying it as long as Justice Hill’s value remains in this range: he’s a perfect fit as the RB3 in Atlanta. I know fans are clamoring for a physical, short-yardage back—but the team already has that in Brian Hill. What they don’t have anymore is a dynamic receiving threat and competent pass blocker, and that’s where Hill comes in. Here’s what I wrote about Hill in a previous mock draft.Round 5, Pick 153: LB Joe Giles-Harris, DukeAnother one of my favorite picks for the Falcons. LB Joe Giles-Harris from Duke is criminally underrated at this point, and I greedily hope that continues so that Atlanta can benefit. If you want the team to move on from Duke Riley, Giles-Harris is your guy. Here’s what I wrote about Giles-Harris in a previous mock:Round 5, Pick 173: WR Jakobi Meyers, NC StateThis pick just makes too much sense for the Falcons, although NC State WR Jakobi Meyers’ stock has continued to rise after an impressive Senior Bowl performance. I don’t believe Atlanta ends up cutting Mohamed Sanu this offseason, but they’ll need his replacement in 2020. Instead of waiting until the need becomes urgent, the Falcons draft him now. Here’s what I had to say about Meyers in a previous mock:Round 6, Pick 188: CB Jimmy Moreland, James MadisonHere’s a player you haven’t seen mocked to the Falcons before, and that’s because I only just heard about him at the Senior Bowl. Make no mistake, however: Moreland is a quality CB prospect, and his stock should continue to rise as more and more analysts get a glimpse of his game.At 5’11, 175, Moreland clearly isn’t going to be an outside guy in the NFL. But the Falcons don’t need another outside CB—they need someone who can upgrade Brian Poole in the slot. I think Moreland has excellent potential as a nickel CB. He’s got tremendous ball skills and a nasty physicality to him, despite his lack of ideal size and length. Moreland’s coverage technique is solid and he’s got plenty of athletic ability to boot. He’s a CB that fits what Dan Quinn wants from a mentality perspective, and could be a steal this late in the draft.Round 7, Pick 232: LB Kendall Joseph, ClemsonThe Falcons can really go in any direction with this final pick. They could add more depth across the roster, whether that’s in the trenches, in the secondary, or at a skill position. In this case, I think the best value might be at LB—a position where the Falcons have some talent, but could always upgrade the bottom of the depth chart. Looking ahead to the cap situation in 2020, it also seems more and more likely that De’Vondre Campbell won’t be re-signed.Clemson LB Kendall Joseph could be an ideal fourth or fifth LB for the Falcons. At 6’0, 225, he’s simply too small to be a fit for many NFL schemes—which might mean that he’s still around this late in drafts. Joseph has great athleticism and very good coverage skills to go along with consistent tackling ability. Where he struggles is if he’s asked to come downhill and take on blocks, which is never going to be his strength. As a rotational LB and special teams player, Joseph would be an excellent 7th round selection that could provide valuable depth in Atlanta.AnalysisIn this mock draft, the Falcons focus on fixing the major issues on the offensive line while bolstering the defensive line with quality contributors. OT Jawaan Taylor is pro-ready and should provide an immediate upgrade over Ryan Schraeder, even if he struggles somewhat as a rookie. C/G Erik McCoy is one of the best interior OL in the draft and should start over Wes Schweitzer at LG, while potentially being a long-term replacement for Alex Mack at center in a few years.EDGE Charles Omenihu brings the Falcons the “Adrian Clayborn” player they’ve lacked since his departure, and should immediately bolster an EDGE group that has been almost completely gutted this offseason. DT Daylon Mack is the run-stuffing 1T that Falcons fans have been clamoring for, and his athletic traits make him an ideal fit in Quinn’s defense.Then we get to the depth picks, which are based on value and need. RB Justice Hill is a great third-down specialist and pass protector that should allow Atlanta to move on from Tevin Coleman without too much issue. LB Joe Giles-Harris has 3-down starting upside in a scheme like Quinn’s and should see the field early in his career. WR Jakobi Meyers will give the Falcons another weapon in the passing game, and will make it easier move on from Sanu in 2020. CB Jimmy Moreland has tremendous upside in the slot and his mentality fits perfectly in the Falcons’ defense. LB Kendall Joseph is small, but he’s great in coverage and is a technically refined tackler—he’ll be an early contributor on special teams and a quality rotational piece.We won’t know the true stock of many of these players until after the NFL Combine in a few weeks, but this would be a very strong haul for Atlanta that addresses their biggest needs. What are your thoughts on this potential draft class, Falcons fans?
