EDTShareTweetShareShareA brief history of the 14th pick, ahead of the Falcons 2019 draft The Falcons currently (though not necessarily on draft night) hold the 14th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. That selection should be able to snag the Falcons a very good player, but you might if yourself wondering if history is on their side in that regard.Today, we’ll take a look to see whether the 14th selection (which the Falcons have not had in the past nearly 40 years, incidentally) has a history of yielding quality players or not. Let’s go back to 2000, with a few highlights of true greats who were drafted since 1980. 2018: DE Marcus Davenport, Saints2017: DE Derek Barnett, Eagles2016: S Karl Joseph, Raiders2015: WR DeVante Parker, Dolphins2014: CB Kyle Fuller, Bears2013: DT Star Loulelei, Panthers2012: DL Michael Brockers, Rams2011: DE Robert Quinn, Rams2010: S Earl Thomas, Seahawks2009: CB Malcolm Jenkins, Saints2008: T Chris Williams, Bears2007: CB Darrelle Revis, Jets2006: DT Brodrick Bunkley, Eagles2005: LB Thomas Davis, Panthers2004: DT Tommie Harris, Bears2003: DE Michael Haynes, Bears2002: TE Jeremy Shockey, Giants2001: T Kenyatta Walker, Buccaneers2000: TE Bubba Franks Richard Dent Jerseys 2019 , Packers1996: RB Eddie George, Titans1989: DE Jaff Lageman, Jets1983: QB Jim Kelly, BillsWhat can we get out of this list, which I followed all the way back to 2000 before just picking a few highlights out from the years past? The trend since 2000 or so has been to take defensive linemen or secondary players at #14, and the NFL has largely been rewarded with great players by making those choices. Brockers, Lotulelei, Quinn, and Jenkins are all good players, while Earl Thomas and Darrelle Revis are two Hall of Famers. Even some of the more recent picks, like Davenport, Barnett and Joseph, could turn into quality players in the near future, and Davenport has the tools to be a star. In other words, the 14th pick is usually a pretty good spot to be in if you want a quality defender, and that figures to be the case again this year. Typically teams reach for quarterbacks in the top ten—something the Falcons may or may not see this year, depending on whether teams fall in love with Dwayne Haskins and Daniel Jones—but their chances of getting a player they love in the trenches is very high even if they don’t move. If the Falcons stay at 14, who do you think they’ll pick? How do Atlanta’s free agency additions affect their draft strategy? If the Falcons top DL choices are gone at 14, which direction do they go in the first round? Kevin breaks down all nine picks in his most recent 7-round mock draft."The initial free agency frenzy has dissipated, and with it we now have a much clearer view of the Falcons’ needs in the upcoming 2019 NFL Draft. Namely, the additions of G James Carpenter and G Jamon Brown have essentially taken interior offensive line off the board, at least early in the draft. If you’d like to read more in-depth thoughts on how I think free agency shaped the Falcons’ draft strategy, check out this article.Atlanta is armed with nine picks—plenty of ammunition to address their needs on both sides of the ball and add a lot of young depth. For this mock draft simulation, I’ll be using The Draft Network’s Mock Draft Machine—which is, in my opinion White Mike Ditka Jerseys , far superior to the other simulators out there. If you missed any of my previous mock drafts, you can find them below:First EditionSecond EditionThird EditionFourth EditionFifth EditionLet’s get started.Round 1, Pick 14: OT Cody Ford, OklahomaIn this scenario, the Falcons missed out on Ed Oliver, Brian Burns, and Montez Sweat. It’s possible the team could go after Christian Wilkins or Clelin Ferrell here, but I’d rather commit to fixing the OL in 2019 with the addition of Oklahoma OT Cody Ford. Atlanta has shown interest in Ford, and at 6’4, 329 he certainly fits the mold of the bigger—but still athletic—offensive linemen that Koetter has added this offseason. I discussed Ford in my OT prospect preview, and here’s how I described his skillset:Round 2, Pick 45: EDGE Charles Omenihu, TexasOne of my favorite second round targets for the Falcons, Texas’ Charles Omenihu could be Atlanta’s new Adrian Clayborn. At 6’6, 275, Omenihu is long enough to succeed on the edge and stout enough to play on the interior in passing situations. He’s a similar player to Rashan Gary, except Omenihu’s price tag will be significantly lower. Here’s what I wrote about Omenihu in my EDGE prospect preview:Round 3, Pick 79: DT Khalen Saunders, Western IllinoisIf the Falcons miss out on Ed Oliver, they’d still be smart to add a potential impact DT later in the draft. Value meets need in the third round with Western Illinois DT Khalen Saunders—an FCS prospect with impressive tape that has been a huge riser throughout the draft process. At 6’0, 324, Saunders is short but stout and incredibly powerful, capable of tossing offensive linemen around like ragdolls.While he isn’t overly explosive off the snap, Saunders has very impressive speed and lateral movement ability. For a DT, he has excellent range and flexibility to plug gaps and chase down plays behind the line of scrimmage. He was downright dominant at his level of competition Mike Ditka Jerseys 2019 , and his physical traits give him the upside of a high-level NFL starter. Saunders needs a ton of technique work, however, and he’s probably best relegated to a rotational role early in his career. In the Falcons’ attacking 4-3 scheme, Saunders has a ton of potential.Round 4, Pick 117: WR Miles Boykin, Notre DameDespite the Falcons bringing back WR Justin Hardy, I still believe the team is likely to target a long-term replacement for Mohamed Sanu on Day 3. Luckily, there are a ton of players I love in this area, including Mecole Hardman, Cody Thompson, and Jakobi Meyers. However, in this scenario, the Falcons swing for the fences on the sky-high upside of Notre Dame WR Miles Boykin.Boykin wasn’t utilized much in college, but his athletic profile is downright ridiculous. At 6’3, 225, Boykin managed a 4.42s 40-yard dash (83rd percentile), a 140” broad jump (99th), and a 43.5” vertical (98th) . He also added an impressive 6.77s 3-cone (77th) and 4.07 20-yard shuttle (86th). Boykin is a dynamic deep threat with great size and contested catch ability, but he needs a season to develop his route tree and receiving technique—both of which are severely lacking. The Falcons can afford to let Boykin sit for a year and contribute on special teams, with the hope that he can take over Sanu’s role in 2020 and beyond.Round 4, Pick 137: CB Mark Fields, ClemsonMy two favorite CBs have seen their stock rise since the Combine, with Isaiah Johnson in particular vaulting himself into Day 2 consideration. If the Falcons do miss out on Johnson, they have several good Day 3 options that can also help fill out the depth chart. One of my favorites is Clemson’s Mark Fields, who put on a show at the Combine. Fields had trouble breaking into Clemson’s starting lineup throughout his entire career before being thrust onto the field in the playoffs. He had a good game against Alabama White Tom Waddle Jerseys , and his stock has been on the rise ever since. Here’s what I wrote about Fields in my CB prospect preview:Round 5, Pick 152: LB Ben Burr-Kirven, WashingtonThe Falcons will still be on the lookout for LB depth, particularly with De’Vondre Campbell’s status in question for 2020 and Duke Riley showing very little in his starting opportunities. Washington’s Ben Burr-Kirven had already impressed me with his tape, but his Combine workout elevated him from a fringe-UDFA to an intriguing Day 3 prospect. Burr-Kirven is a physical hitter with surprisingly good athletic ability, but his 6’0, 230 stature will limit his appeal to teams like Atlanta who don’t require a ton of size from their LBs. He’s very natural in zone coverage and is capable of covering a lot of ground with his natural athleticism and change-of-direction ability. Burr-Kirven’s physicality masks some of his physical weaknesses, but his short stature can make him a liability in coverage against TEs. At worst, Burr-Kirven will be a rotational LB with great special teams ability. Quinn’s defense could be the ideal fit for Burr-Kirven to eventually carve out a starting role.Round 5, Pick 172: S Sheldrick Redwine, MiamiIf the Falcons are looking to upgrade their safety depth (and hopefully move on from Jordan Richards), Miami’s Sheldrick Redwine has the versatility to backup both strong and free safety. Redwine has solid size at 6’0, 196 coupled with impressive athletic ability—his 4.44s 40-yd dash puts him in the 90th percentile for safeties. He seems like exactly the type of player Quinn covets in his secondary. I wrote about Redwine in my safety prospect preview, and here’s how I described his talents:Round 6, Pick 186: RB Devine Ozigbo, NebraskaDespite the Falcons signing of RB Kenjon Barner, I still think the team will add another RB in the draft. That pick might come a little later, but that’s just fine in 2019’s very deep class. Even in the sixth round, Atlanta can add RB2 talent in the form of Nebraska’s Devine Ozigbo—one of the biggest Combine snubs of the year.A one-year wonder that had a production explosion under new head coach Scott Frost, the 6’0, 230 Ozigbo totally redefined his game and excelled in the new zone blocking scheme. Ozigbo has good vision, impressive physicality, and excellent agility and change-of-direction skills. He’s not an elite receiver, but he’s certainly capable of making plays there and can also contribute as a pass protector. Ozigbo doesn’t have breakaway speed and will never be a home run hitter in the NFL, but he’s a very well-rounded back that would be an ideal fit in Atlanta’s offense. In the sixth round Tom Waddle Jerseys 2019 , he’d be a steal.Round 7, Pick 230: C Lamont Gaillard, GeorgiaWhile the Falcons addressed guard in free agency, they’d still be wise to add a developmental center to groom behind Alex Mack. Georgia’s Lamont Gaillard could be a fit there, particularly if he manages to last this long in the draft. Gaillard lacks ideal size, but he’s got toughness in spades and has the leadership mentality that the Falcons love to see from players. I had the Falcons taking Gaillard in a previous mock draft, and here’s what I had to say about his skillset:AnalysisAfter missing out on their top defensive line targets in Round 1, the Falcons decide to commit to the offensive line rebuild with the selection of OT Cody Ford. With Ford taking over at RT, Atlanta will go into the 2019 season with a much larger, much more physical lineup—particularly on the right side. The team then focuses on the defensive line with the Day 2 selections of EDGE Charles Omenihu and DT Khalen Saunders. Omenihu fills the void left by Adrian Clayborn, with inside/outside flexibility and tremendous physical talent. Saunders is raw, but his potential is sky-high—particularly in a one-gap scheme like Atlanta’s.The Falcons then turn their attention to filling out the depth across the roster. With their first fourth round pick, the team targets WR Miles Boykin—a physical marvel with tremendous size and athletic talent that simply needs some development to reach his potential. CB Mark Fields joins the Falcons as a high-upside slot option that can provide excellent depth and special teams ability. In the fifth round, the Falcons add more defensive depth in LB Ben Burr-Kirven and S Sheldrick Redwine. Burr-Kirven fits the athletic profile that Quinn targets and could potentially be an upgrade over Duke Riley. Redwine is an athletic, versatile safety prospect that can backup both SS and FS, with the potential to grow into a future starter in big nickel packages.With their final two picks, the Falcons target even more offensive depth. RB Devine Ozigbo is an absurd value this late, as he has starting talent in a zone blocking scheme coupled with strong physical traits. C Lamont Gaillard is still in need of some technical development, but he can be groomed for a year or two behind Alex Mack with an eye on becoming long-term depth or an eventual starter.What do you think of this mock draft for the Falcons?
