With The 19th Pick In The 2010 Arrowhead Pride Mock Draft, The Atlanta Falcons Select...

New, comments

Note by Joel: I screwed up twice today. First, I originally told Iamthegreatest that he was not picking for the Falcons so he didn't know he was up. Second, I posted the 20th pick before the 19th pick.  Yeah, long day. Anyway, thanks to Iamthegreatest for this last second pick...

The Atlanta Falcons have taken steps over the past three years that have really sent them in the right direction. They have developed their own receiver in Roddy White, who has turned out to be a Pro Bowl caliber player. They have drafted a young, up and coming superstar QB and they traded for the beloved Tony Gonzalez last year. The offense does not seem to be the problem for this Atlanta Falcons team. Their offensive line is young and very much has helped Matt Ryan become what he is becoming.

The problem lies within the defense.

The Falcons have had bad luck with Jamaal Anderson, who is in his third year. And they have had problems with the cornerback position, due to injuries and lack of depth. With the signing of Dunta Robinson the cornerback spot seems to be in better shape. I believe the Falcons are only a few players from being a very good defense. With linebackers such as Curtis Lofton and Mike Peterson, the falcons have a very talented group of linebackers to build on.....

With all this being said I believe the Falcons will pick...

Sean Weatherspoon, University of Missouri linebacker.

"Spoon" Brings a great amount of experience and leadership to a Falcons defense that is just about there. Sean Weatherspoon fits the mold of the Atlanta Falcons. He is a tough nosed, very vocal linebacker that brings both coverage and run stopping abilities.
