Atlanta Falcons: C+

The pick of Neal makes sense because he fills the Kam Chancellor role for the Falcons. He's an aggressive player, and sometimes that will get him trouble. He fills the spot left by William Moore. He can play near the line of scrimmage, but will need some work in coverage. Second round pick Deion Jones adds a level of speed the team has been searching for. Hooper can be the tight end the Falcons have really need since the retirement of Tony Gonzalez. Fourth-round pick De'Vondre Campbell is a toolsy player who will need to be coached up. He missed a season with a concussion, so you wonder what will happen if he gets another one.

Keanu Neal

S, Florida

Without a doubt, Neal will immediately plug in as the day one starter at strong safety. His physicality will serve him well in the box, though he'll need to be more conscious about wrapping guys up consistently. However, don't let that physicality deceive you: Neal can cover as well. He played both safety positions at Florida and is more than capable of dropping into coverage.


Deion Jones


You may recall Deion Jones for his unholy 4.38 40 at his pro day (compared to a 4.59 at the combine), so he certainly brings a fast presence to the team. He's only listed at 222 on his profile (to Keanu Neal's 211) so he won't be much more of a linebacker to the team, but he will still be one. He also at least has the positional experience and suddenly we have not one, but two guys that can cover TEs that we did not have last year. We'll most likely be leaning on this kid a lot this year, so here's hoping that his 40 time at his pro day is more indicative of his speed than his 40 at the combine.


Austin Hooper

TE, Stanford

At No. 81, this is great value, and Hooper should provide a quick impact supplementing current starter Jacob Tamme. Most had him as the second best tight end in the draft, after only Hunter Henry. He needs to work on his hands, but can run block well and provides the downfield speed the Falcons offense desperately needed.


De'Vondre Campbell

LB, Minnesota

Campbell is an extremely intriguing prospect, but one with significant question marks, which has become the hallmark of Falcons late rounders in recent years. He has the physicality head coach Dan Quinn covets, terrific athleticism, and "quick twitch" ability. He can likely play inside or outside for Atlanta, and he's going to step in as a full-time player immediately for a weak Falcons linebacker corps.


Wes Schweitzer

G, San Jose State

The Falcons likely drafted Schweitzer to be a developmental guard, so we'll see how he fares over the next three years or so.


Devin Fuller


Fuller is fast, and while he may chip in as a receiver, he'll primarily make his mark on special teams for Atlanta. He was a productive returner in college, and the Falcons may be parting ways with Devin Hester later this summer, so it would be fair to expect him to step in that role. Not a bad pick, and we'll see how he pans out.
