Atlanta Falcons: 4 Late Round Picks That Would Fit on the Team

Plenty of NFL teams have found gems from the deeper rounds in April. The Falcons will hopefully be one of them this year, as they only have five selections in the 2012 draft.

Atlanta will miss out on their first and fourth round selections, leaving even less room to find guys who can make an impact right away. It's never an easy task to find the perfect fit in those later rounds, but they've accomplished similar feats in the past. Todd McClure was a seventh-round selection back in 1999; look how he's turned out for this team.

The current depth chart holds a few glaring issues that need to be addressed, and some of those problems will be tackled in free agency. After that the end of April will be their primary focus, and there will be multiple guys still lingering on Saturday who will be perfect for the Falcons.

Here are four players with late round projections and something to bring to table in Atlanta. All projected rounds were taken from the prospect rankings at CBS Sports.
