The Phinsider Community Mock Draft: Pick #3 - Atlanta Falcons

New, comments

With the second pick in The Phinsider Community Mock Draft, the St. Louis Rams select Jake Long, OT, Michigan.

Jake Long finished with 67% of the vote. He was followed by Vernon Gholston (21%) and Glenn Dorsey (7%).

So that makes the draft so far look like this:

  1. Miami Dolphins - Chris Long, DE, Virginia (49%)
  2. St. Louis Rams - Jake Long, OT, Michigan (67%)
Up next, with the 3rd pick, are the Atlanta Falcons. I'd suggest checking out The Falcoholic for all your up to date Falcons info and insight. Below are their needs, according to NFL Draft Countdown:
1. Quarterback: Neither Joey Harrington or Byron Leftwich were the long-term answer and even though Chris Redman played admirably late in the year this franchise needs a signal caller in the worst way.
2. Offensive Tackle: Wayne Gandy was sent packing and will need to be replaced at left tackle because it's highly unlikely that guys like Renardo Foster and Quinn Ojinnaka are starting material in the NFL.
3. Defensive Tackle: Rod Coleman was their one impact presence on the interior but he's gone and to make matters worse youngster Trey Lewis suffered a major setback in the rehab of his knee injury.
