With the 31st pick in the 2017 DBN Community NFL Mock Draft, the Atlanta Falcons select...
Forrest Lamp, OL, Western Kentucky
The selection and write-up were made by BrianB77:
After a tremendous season that saw them lose in the Super Bowl, the Falcons hold the 31st pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. Pass Rusher and Guard are the two most important positions for the Falcons to address in the first round of the draft. With the top rated interior offensive line prospect still on the board, the selection of Forrest Lamp from Western Kentucky was an easy one.
Lamp is an athletic and versatile prospect who started at tackle for four years in college, but will most likely find NFL success moving inside to guard. By moving Lamp, the Falcons will immediately upgrade a position of weakness and offer even more protection to their MVP quarterback. Lamp would also have an opportunity to play next to Alex Mack who has a track record of helping young guards improve their game at the NFL level.
Pokorny: I worry a bit about how the Atlanta Falcons’ offense will do without Kyle Shanahan coaching them this year, and that’s a statement I thought I’d never make after I saw his Browns-coached team fall apart in Brian Hoyer’s big year. From an overall perspective, Atlanta has more talent than most teams can dream of offensively, but Shanahan was the one guy who was able to bring it together better than anyone. I like the selection of a guard to build upon the key addition of Mack last year and perhaps one day try to rival what the Cowboys have in place.
The New Orleans Saints are up next, led by troy145.
