2013 Atlanta Falcons Mock Draft: #MockTwo Brings Unique Results

Twitter features a group in the draftnik community who create the #MockOne every year. #MockTwo was the second iteration of #MockOne this year and it led to really unique results for the Falcons. Results can be found on the official #MockOne website.

I was tasked with the opportunity to be the Falcons general manager for #MockTwo. I went into the draft with a plan to get a couple of pass rushers, a third receiving option to replace Tony Gonzalez and a running back to replace Michael Turner.

I felt comfortable enough with the starting offensive line and secondary to hold off on selections there until we have a more complete picture of 2013 free agency. However, the draft went much differently than I expected. 

I went in hoping to trade down and select Jamie Collins in the middle of the second, while also picking up a third-round pick. If executed, I would have held a pair of seconds and a pair of thirds to bring more talent to the Falcons in the top half of the draft. 

Unfortunately, no one took the trade offer and I was forced to go with the original selections. Follow along as we review the unique situation that unfolded for me in #MockTwo.
