Mel Kiper’s Falcons Mock Draft is in and I think it’s bullshit, but you be the judge. Here’s Kipers first three picks.
Interesting 3-round mock from @MelKiperESPN for the #Falcons. He has Atlanta selecting WR DJ Moore with their 1st round pick, not a defensive tackle. Could be interesting to see what happens if Payne, Hurst & Bryan are all off the board when No. 26 rolls around. #DraftTalk pic.twitter.com/4cXXq4Lgt9

Interesting to say the least..
If you’re anything like me you think these picks are crap. I mean I understand the Falcons have a need at wide receiver. Having lost explosive slot receiver Taylor Gabriel to the Chicago Bears.
Falcons are in need of speed to occupy the middle of the field.
However, I can not say wide receiver is a position they need to address in the first round. Especially if it’s not Calvin Ridley.
Nothing against DJ Moore, he’s an excellent talent… Just believe defensive tackle needs to be addressed immediately.
Having lost Dontari Poe to the Carolina Panthers. Grady Jarrett going into his final year of his rookie deal, Falcons need another defensive tackle.
Here are three players I feel Falcons should take instead?
Alabama DT Da’Ron Payne – Here
Michigan’s DT Maurice Hurst – Here
Florida’s DT Taven Bryan. – Here
