Matt Miller's Pick: OLB Christian Kirksey, Iowa
This is another situation where the Falcons would have already addressed this spot in the ideal situation. So instead, they have to look at a spot that isn't a major need but does need some better depth. That spot is wide receiver.
The kind of wide receiver they need is someone who can play an explosive role in the offense while also being able to run the same underneath routes that Roddy White does. That guy is Jeremy Gallon. Gallon is very similar to Steve Smith in build, speed and overall style.
He may be a diminutive receiver, but he's also someone who can easily go over the middle. On top of that, he has a tough mentality about him that makes him an ideal upgrade on special teams over the current Falcons reserves, who have proven to be nothing but special teams players.
