Atlanta Falcons: 2010 NFL Draft Review & Grade
April 25, 2010 by luckylester
Atlanta Falcons: I like Sean Weatherspoon, obviously, I’ve rated him 319 overall on my board and he was picked at 19 – but that doesn’t mean he was good value. A great help to a defense that needs lots of it? You bet – he’s instinctive, fast, and a sure tackler – and best of all, he’s an every down linebacker, and a good one. But he could have been had by trading down 6-10 spots, and the Falcons could have used the extra picks. Corey Peters is a solid player, a very big tackles with a good feel for the game, but not the elite tools or consistency that could make him an All-Pro, then again, he was a 3rd round pick. The picked up a solid interior lineman in the 3rd round in Mike Johnson – a solid (but not huge) guard that paved the way for one of the best rushing attacks in all of college football last season. Dom Franks was a steal in Round 5, as his feel for zone coverages should help the Falcons right away. A couple solid players, a couple good value picks, but nothing amazing.
