2014 Atlanta Falcons Mock Draft: What Happens with a Curveball at the Top?

When Julio Jones was taken No. 6 overall, the Falcons offense took another step. A unique scenario for Atlanta that is very possible would be for them to re-sign Jonathan Babineaux and Corey Peters to start at defensive tackle.

In this scenario, assume the Falcons have signed Jairus Byrd, an offensive guard like Geoff Schwartz and a pair of pass rushers like Brian Orakpo and Michael Johnson in free agency. It's a bit of a haul in free agency, but with over 23 million in cap space, the Falcons could legitimately make the signings.

Also, this is a completely speculative free-agency scenario, but one that needs to be kicked around. It's one where Atlanta would be able to go with an almost ideal "Best Player Available" philosophy in the draft. This is what that scenario could wind up looking like.
