2012 NFL Draft Grades: Atlanta Falcons Earn "C" Through Day 2

The Atlanta Falcons knew that they would enter the 2012 NFL Draft handicapped to a certain extent. When the team trade up to grab Julio Jones in last year's first round, the price was exorbitant, so they had to pay that price sometime. Left with two late day two choices, the Falcons this year used them to solidify the offensive line. That earns them a "C" grade from SB Nation's Joel Thorman through three rounds.

Thorman writes, "Peter Konz is a great pick in the 2nd round. Lamar Holmes adds to the offensive line depth. But that's it. The cost of doing business when you move up nearly two dozen spots, as the Falcons did last year."
