Round 7, No. 236 Overall: RB George Winn, Cincinnati
The Falcons need someone who can provide depth to a somewhat light running back corps. George Winn is arguably one of the most explosive players in the draft at running back, but could slip due to NFL teams de-valuing the position.
Round 7, No. 243 Overall: OLB Michael Clay, Oregon
Bringing in some depth at linebacker is definitely a huge deal for Atlanta. Michael Clay is an athletic, albeit undersized, linebacker who looks like he could play in both sub-packages and on special teams. He's a heart player who could also compete for a role as the team's long snapper.
Round 7, No. 244 Overall: CB Rod Sweeting, Georgia Tech
Atlanta taking another one of the local guys from Georgia Tech makes a ton of sense here with Rod Sweeting. He's a long-term solution as a special teams player and reserve cornerback. He should definitely be able to compete for the nickel or dime role when Asante Samuel retires.
Round 7, No. 249 Overall: OL Terren Jones, Alabama State
Terren Jones is a massive offensive lineman from Alabama State who can play either guard or right tackle in the NFL. If the Falcons did select him, it would make particular sense for goalline packages. The powerful Jones would be able to seal off an edge or create internal push better than most current Falcons.
