Everyone is doing their mock drafts right now since there’s basically nothing else to talk about with the NFL right now until free agency starts, and I try not to put too much weight into them. Let people have their opinions and have fun with the scenarios. However, I really like this one from Justin Melo of the Draft Network:

Melo takes a similar approach that I do — drafting high upside defenders and pieces on offense that contributed at a high level in college. I don’t agree with all of the picks, but I would give this draft an A or higher if it came to fruition.

As you can see, it starts off with Joey Porter Jr., who I’m a huge fan of. I probably like someone like Christian Gonzalez and especially Devon Witherspoon a little more, but Porter Jr. has the makings of a fantastic pro. Here’s how their picks shook out:

Round 1, Pick 8: CB Joey Porter Jr. — Penn State

Round 2, Pick 45: EDGE Felix Anudike-Uzomah — Kansas State

Round 3, Pick 76: DT Keeanu Benton — Wisconsin

Round 4, Pick 111: WR Cedric Tillman — Tennessee

Round 4, Pick 114: RB Kenny McIntosh — Georgia

Round 5, Pick 162: OL Nick Broeker — Ole Miss

Round 7, Pick 227: CB Jaylon Jones — Texas A&M

Round 7, Pick 248: S Ji’Ayir Brown — Penn State

I highly encourage you to read the full mock, his rationale is well thought out and something that Falcons fans should read leading up to the draft.
