2010 NFL Mock Draft: Atlanta Falcons Edition

For an intro I'll stick with capping what our needs are and who I think we will resign, let walk, and sign in Free Agency which will turn out to be interesting.

So this is my first attempt at a mock draft for this season and is pretty much a trial run to see what kind of feedback I am able to get.

First off let me start by saying that I am glad we finally got the monkey off our back in having back to back winning seasons. But, in my mind that is not good enough for this franchise. We should be gearing up to head to the playoffs every season. With that said...

I believe our top position needs are DE, CB, OL, OLB, WR/KR. So now that I have that out of the way lets get started.

Resignings

CB-Brent Grimes-He came on great late in the season and now I think that if we get a CB in the draft or free agency Grimes would be the perfect nickel for the team and could shine when he is put to play there.

RB-Jason Snelling-He was huge when Turner went down with his injuries and helped to lead us to breaking the curse. I think he is a good compliment to Turner but is not the solution to our problems at RB. I think that if we can get another somewhere we will be set. More of a change of pace back similar to what the Cowboys have in Marion Barber, Tashard Choice, and Felix Jones.

OG-Harvey Dahl
OT/OG-Tyson Clabo
QB-Chris Redman
P-Michael Koenen

Release/Non-Sign

RB-Jerious Norwood-While he is one of my favorite players on the team I just don't see us keeping him around for the fact that even when he was healthy this season he did not give the team that much benefit at his position. I like him but the injuries continue to pop up and I think we replace him in the draft with a similar change of pace back.

CB-Tye Hill

Other possibles include: Chris Houston and JA98 but I think we would attempt to trade them before cutting them even if we could not get that much for them.

FA Signings

OLB-Clint Ingram
CB-Leigh Bodden, Kelvin Hayden, Carlos Rogers, or Dunta Robinson.
DE(highly doubtful for me)-Ray Edwards
O-line depth could be another possible move?
