Falcons select Indiana RB Tevin Coleman in 3rd round

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) The Atlanta Falcons have taken Indiana running back Tevin Coleman in the third round of the NFL draft in an attempt to address one of the team's most glaring needs.

Falcons stay focused on defense, select LSU CB Collins

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) The Atlanta Falcons have continued to work on defense by drafting LSU cornerback Jalen Collins with their second-round pick of the NFL draft. Collins (6-1, 203) gives new coach Dan Quinn more size at cornerback. The Falcons selected Clemson defensive end Vic Beasley with the No. 8 overall pick in the first round. Beasley was regarded as perhaps the most...

Jalen Collins joins the Atlanta Falcons defense

First it was Vic Beasley to help the Atlanta Falcons defensive pass rush. Now it’s time to help the secondary with Jalen Collins of LSU. Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said he wanted to get faster. With these two picks he has certainly done that. This is exactly how the draft for this team was supposed to play out. Now they have a cover cornerback this team has coveted. Collins...

Looking at Potential Eagles Day Two Targets

Ever since the NFL changed to the new format of the draft (Thursday-Saturday), I’ve been a big believer that day two is the most important day to get right. There are definitely high expectations in the first round. You want a player that is highly talented, fills a large need, and can contribute right away. However, I think the same traits hold true in the second and third round...

Lots of Value Still on the Board at Positions of Need for Steelers

Raise your hand if you thought the Steelers would be choosing between Randy Gregory, Shane Ray, and Alvin Dupree at 22 a month ago. If you’re raising your hand you’re a liar! I was hoping for Marcus Peters, but Alvin Dupree is a pretty great consolation prize. I do think that Dupree could take some time to figure out how to convert his athleticism into production, but he was...

Detroit Lions First Round Big Board

The Detroit Lions will be on the clock in about 6 hours and it’s going to be interesting. Do they go out and piss their fans off by drafting another receiver or tight end? Or do they trade back in the first round? Maybe they stay put and draft a need at offensive line or defensive line? Nobody really knows what their big board looks like but below I give you an idea of what it...

New England Patriots 7 Round Mock Draft

The New England Patriots hold nine selections in the NFL Draft. They are a prime candidate to move out of the 32nd pick, having the option to move up or down in the draft. They have five of the top 101 picks, making them a prime candidate to move up for a player they want. While this is out of the normal Bill Belichick mold, Director of Player Personnel Nick Caserio hinted that the...

State of the Draft: Raiders-49ers trade, Trade Talk, Player-Team Fits, and Much More

It’s Christmas for fans of the NFL and the NFL Draft, but it’s a dense fog of smoke for those trying to project what may happen during draft weekend. Dissecting what is “possible” from what will happen is the hardest part of the projection of a first round, because NFL decision makers are generally far from set in stone on any of their ideas until their team is on the clock...

The most anticipated event of the NFL off-season is set to kick-off this Thursday night, April 30 in Chicago – round one of the NFL Draft.

There is great anticipation that the Packers will select many of the guys that I have mocked – those...

Steelers Reportedly Have Three Cornerbacks at the Top of Their Big Board
