2011 NFL Draft: Falcons Pick Andrew Jackson, Hope For Battle Of New Orleans Repeat

Andrew Jackson, no Trail of Tears, will work to provide the Atlanta Falcons some offensive line depth, having been picked No. 210 in the seventh round of the 2011 NFL Draft. The six-foot-five Fresno State 299-pounder projects as a NFL guard, a position at which the Falcons are set for the time being, assuming they're able to bring back either Harvey Dahl or Justin Blalock as starters.

He's quick and a good run blocker, but may not develop the strength to be a top starter. His footwork game needs some good coaching, but he plays with vigor.

The Falcons have one pick remaining, and there's absolutely no telling where they go this time. Defensive back? Defensive line?
