Here's a look at seven obsessives who've predicted the entire 2011 NFL Draft. Each link goes to a complete seven-round mock draft, but let's talk about the Atlanta Falcons selections. As is custom, Adrian Clayborn is the most popular first-round pick, but take a look at that second round. Three of seven have Troy WR Jerrel Jernigan going to Atlanta, with another sending him Georgia Dome way in the third. That's about as close to a second-round consensus as you'll ever get.
Beyond that, it's anyone's guess. Most are convinced the team needs offensive line, tight end and secondary help in addition to the positions listed above. Fans of good clean fun will hope that D.J. Williams pick comes true.
