Deion Jones. I like the pick. Ran a 4.38 40, led LSU in TFL's, and is good in coverage.

Jack, Ragland, A'Shawn Robinson, Reed, Spence, Dobb, Ogbah, Chris Jones all ended up not falling to 50. This makes the Keanu pick even worst, just horrible. This makes Quinn just look really dumb, like when he reached and got Bruce Irving in the first round when he was projected as a 3rd round pick, and then Irving ended up being a bust and wasted pick for the Seahawks.

I'm ok with the Dion pick, but he is not my first choice at 52. If i was making the pick, I would have taken Carl Nassib.

I don't like the Hooper pick. I would have picked Joshua Perry. Perry has a good body, good speed and is a high character guy. Hooper is a slot receiver and the Falcons have to address their many holes on defense, especially fixing their last place ranking in sacks

De'Vondre Campbell in the 4th. Played OLB at Minnesota, but I'm fully expecting him to shift to ILB here. Very athletic, and QB's had a completion percentage of just over 51% throwing his way in coverage (2nd among all LBs in the draft). Needs to add some weight, as does Deion Jones, but all of their negatives can be coached.

I'm liking the way this draft has shaped up. Neal, Jones, and Campbell are all exceptional scheme fits, and I wouldn't be surprised to see them all start on day 1. Hooper addresses the need at TE, but I wouldn't mind him sitting behind Tamme to start the season.

Just a horrible draft.

Falcons were last in the league in sacks and needed to address that in the draft and free agency. after tonight, the Falcons got a safety, a LB, and a slot receiver , with the first three picks, the Falcons have done nothing the address the lack of sack production.

If I was making the picks, I would have taken Lee, Nassib, and Joshua Perry with the first three picks. Lee helps right away and could be a better version of Derrick Brooks or Thomas Davis. Nassib and Perry are two well built DE/LB with good speed and great motors that would pair up well with Beasley. Nassib and Perry would defiantly help in addressing the Falcons' weakness in sacks.

In the 4th round, i would have taken Jayron Kearse

Falcons should be able to get Dominique Robertson and Avery Young in free agency.

I hope the Falcons can also reach out to Tyvis Powell, Romeo Okwara, Bryce Williams

Falcons and the 2016 draft

Watch out for 6th round pick Wes Schweitzer, he could compete for a starting Guard spot. Knows the zone blocking scheme, and has a lot of strength. If nothing else, he'll be a key rotation piece in a division where the Saints and Panthers just boasted the interior of their D-Line in the first round.

I like Wes Schweitzer too.
I believe he'll have a very good future and make an impact during the near future. We won't have to wait very long at all to notice it.

This is awesome for everybody.

Keanu Neal is currently working out with Pro Bowl safety Kam Chancellor and the experience could make a lasting impact on his NFL career. http://www.atlantafalcons.com/news/blog/article-1/Seahawks%E2%80%99-Chancellor-Taking-Neal-Under-His-Wing/3ef9d129-7cd2-4649-9653-c6b0a497c801
