New month, new edition of my mock coming in the next week or two. Let me know what your team needs are/how they've changed in the past month.

We still need everything but a QB or RB.  

I could see us taking Hamilton(best playmaker), Neal(instant upgrade on the OL), Leal(would probably help our pass rush since we don't get much rush in our interior line), Stingley(best corner in draft), Thibs(best pass rusher), or a wr.

This didn't age well 

I literally started and stopped my November mock 4 different times. Got at least to the mid-20s every time and into the 2nd round twice. Just wasn't happy with how it was turning out. Last week stopped again and decided I was just going to leave November be and do a December one hopefully near the beginning of the month. I'll definitely put out one next month though whether I'm happy with it or not.

Patriots biggest needs looking ahead for next season right now, has to be OT, CB, ILB, and S/WR is a close follow up.

 

Isaiah Wynn is in a contract year, and is probably playing the best football of his career this year (go figure), albeit accounting that availability is the best trait 😆 Trent Brown has had some serious concerns himself and is also in a contract year. the same ones that Raiders fans warned us about. He’s had a lingering calf issue and his ability to play 17 games is no question. It’s not happening, ever.

Quality left tackles don’t grow on trees, so they could pony up the money for Wynn just because he’s better than the unknown and better than what’s up for grabs right now. A 2-3 year deal is likely for him. I know Bill Belichick likes Trent Brown, and I think TB likes playing for him. But I don’t think they’ll rely on him being the guy to protect their franchise quarterback.

 

J.C. Jackson has to come back. Has to. Regardless, New England needs to be in the market for a guy that can play now, and step up big as a potential starter in year 2.

 

Hightower/Van Noy/Collins futures are all up in the air. Hard telling what the LB room looks like next year, but Jerod Mayo and Steve Belichick will definitely want another stud to pair with J’Whaun Bently. Whether it comes in the form of a thumper or an athletic type, is pretty dependent on what happens at the safety position solely because New England wants their guys to be so versatile and lineup for different roles.

I think Devin McCourty retires, and Adrian Phillips has played great in Foxboro but he is a free agent. He needs to be resigned, but New England needs a few talented guys back there to play how they want. If the BPA early on is a standout DB or WR, I can easily see that being the selection. Although, if it’s a receiver it’ll be a guy that takes over Nelson Agholor’s job. Mac Jones loves Kendrick Bourne and Josh McDaniels loves RFA Jakobi Meyers who will take a discounted bag to stay where he thrives. If Jameson Williams or Garrett Willson hang around too long, it’d be really juicy.

I'm overall pretty happy with how this mock turned out, I was really feeling it going through the picks. I originally was going to do only 3 rounds but I was having such a good time I pushed on through to 4 rounds. As I got into the 4th round, I was a little shakier on prospects as my rankings just barely cover this many picks and many of the backend guys I haven't really looked at in depth yet. 

As always please leave feedback or constructive criticism or ask questions about any of the picks. I just like talking draft.

I'd do thibs Kinnard Tolbert Wyatt Kirkland for the jags. 

Thibs simply bpa and we need a 2nd pass rush threat.  

Kinnard solves a Guard spot or RT imo.  

Tolbert gives us a good wr prospect. 

Wyatt gives us another DL piece and Wyatt was the better DL between him and Davis vs bama in the sec championship game. 

Kirkland gives another OL to solve the G/RT spots.

I like London but I don't love him. Give me Dotson here.

I haven't scouted Sanders yet, but I like it positionally.

I like him but his injury history worries me.

 

You seem to hit our biggest needs here. I'd also throw in OL depth, RB depth, LB, and another WR for future considerations.

Love the Stingley pick in round 1 for the Falcons thats a win everytime for our secondary. 

Spiller is a really good RB as well and we can pair him with hopefully a resigned Patterson for a few years to make this running game dangerous for the rest of Ryans years here. 

Riddler i don't actually hate the player but i personally wouldn't take a QB in the 1st 3 rounds in this draft and use those picks to upgrade the team more than a backup QB.  I think we have to big of a hole at Edge, WR, DT, and OL to take a QB to sit behind ryan 2 to 3 more years this early. 

Replacement pick  John Metchie III   think he would be a good addition to our offense and the type of WR we would need to add at that.

Im cool with Durden in the 4th as well anything we can add to the D-line is a win at this point.

I will say this though if we could somehow add a really good Edge rusher or 2 in FA or a WR im much more willing to listen to a QB pick like Riddler in round 2 or 3.  But we gotta help the trenches big time before i take a backup QB.

In these mocks so far out from the draft, a lot of it is just trying to calibrate my understanding of team needs as well as tuning my board a bit. So good news that I hit on some of the biggest needs, I wasn't sure as much beyond WR and EDGE.

Yeah, I liked the fit of Ridder there but can understand your concerns about bigger needs. You make a good point also though talking about free agency. Likely once we move past free agency you'll have filled up some of those holes and then the QB pick becomes more possible. What's the Falcons cap situation looking like this upcoming offseason?

Side note: I struggled a bit with the RB pick. Do you think Smith would want a guy like Spiller who is a dual threat or would he be more likely to go for a guy like Walker who is more of a pure runner. I think back to his offenses in Tennessee with Henry and think maybe the pure runner would fit more. But then you've got Patterson who is in the dual threat role. Or is Smith a good coach who will take the best player and mold his offense around that?

Stingley would be great. Love it.

Round 2
14. Atlanta Falcons - Isaiah Spiller, RB, Texas A&M
19. Washington Football Team - Jordan Battle, S, Alabama
20. Indianapolis Colts - George Pickens, WR, Georgia
23. Los Angeles Chargers - Phidarian Mathis, INT, Alabama
25. Baltimore Ravens - Christian Harris, LB, Alabama
26. Kansas City Chiefs - Myjai Sanders, EDGE, Cincinnati


29. Atlanta Falcons (from Tennessee) - Desmond Ridder, QB, Cincinnati
Round 3
1. Detroit Lions - Lewis Cine, S, Georgia
7. Seattle Seahawks - Arnold Ebiketie, EDGE, Penn State
9. Philadelphia Eagles - Romeo Doubs, WR, Nevada
11. Houston Texans (from New Orleans) - Jalen Catalon, S, Arkansas
12. Las Vegas Raiders - Jalen Tolbert, WR, South Alabama

The Falcons going RB and QB in the 2nd would be a massive waste. Especially since RBs aren't worth that kind of value and they could just re-sign Patterson and go with someone later and no QB in this draft is worth taking. Falcons should go WR or EDGE or S or something there. Ideally in my head, they go Myjai Sanders and then Lewis Cine to pair with Stingley.

Round 3
13. Atlanta Falcons - Isaiah Foskey, EDGE, Notre Dame
Round 4
12. Atlanta Falcons - Cory Durden, INT, North Carolina State

Can never go wrong with defensive front 7.

The Falcons filling holes in free agency would help, but they try to draft best players while also having some focus on positional value. I can't see them taking a RB or QB higher than their talent level suggests in this draft when there are say, WRs and defensive front 7 players they actually do need. If anything, backup QB gets filled this offseason with a small contract and they try to re-sign Patterson. They can focus on other RB needs with players later in the draft and work on fixing up actually vital parts of the defense with a talent infusion it sorely needs.

If the Bengals are going to pick a OG in rd 1, then it better be a slam dunk, day 1 starter, top 3rd in the league starter at OG.  They definitely prioritize Edge, CB, OT over OG.

If they don't go CB in rd 1, then they almost have to go CB in rd 2.  Rd 1 and 2 picks will almost assuredly be CB/OL in some fashion.

I doubt they go interior DL. They have Reader, just drafted Shelvin, signed Ogunjobi last year who I think they bring back, and Josh Tupou has played well enough to where I think he'll be back.

TE in rd 4 sounds about right.  I do think they bring Uzomah back though, he's been productive and is a leader in the locker room.

Not a big Harrison fan, but willing to gamble on his athleticism at the end of rd 4.  Just wouldn't like it in rd 2.

Opinions vary on Green. Last season he was exactly what you were saying, a slam dunk day 1 starter. This year he's been a bit down but that's because a bunch of the other OL for Texas A&M were drafted and so he was asked to play out of position at OT early on and then had to carry a bunch of inexperienced guys for much of the year. For my money I still think he's very good and should easily be a day one starter but opinions do vary on him.

Good to know I got things right in regards to CB and TE. I see your point on DT and will keep that in mind going forward. And then as for Harrison, I agree. He barely slipped into the 4th round for me. He's all hype from being a highly touted prospect. Like you said, the athleticism is absolutely intriguing so I do think he'll be a mid-late round kind of guy but the play is just not good enough for as high as some have him.
