NFL Mock Draft 2012: Coby Fleener, Dwayne Allen Potential Targets For Falcons

The Atlanta Falcons do not have a first-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, so all speculation for potential college recruits this year begins in the second round. There are a great many mock drafts circulation around, but the Falcons are kind enough to round them all up for you.

The Mock Monitor at the official Falcons website summarizes the various notable Falcons mock drafts available. Of the nine mock drafts that the Falcons website takes a look at, the vast majority suggests that the team will look to shore up the tight end position. The consensus pick, appearing on four of the drafts, is Coby Fleener of the Stanford Cardinal. Fleener had a terrific couple of years in the Pac-12 as a favorite target of Andrew Luck. Odds are good that he would make a terrific receiving tandem with Matt Ryan.

Two of the other drafts suggest a different option at tight end; namely, Dawyne Allen of the Clemson Tigers. A third mock draft predicts the Falcons using their second-round pick on tight end Orson Charles of the Georgia Bulldogs. Only two of the nine mock drafts suggest a position other than tight end as the team's opening selection.
