|The Falcons' 2011 Julio Jones trade left them without first- and second-round picks. The deal might have earned high marks for last year's draft, but that sacrifice removed Atlanta from lofty draft-grade consideration in 2012.
The Falcons still capitalized on the majority of their picks. At nearly 6-foot-4 and over 220 pounds with sub-4.6 speed, Iloka has a shot to be a "tight end stopper" Atlanta could use to slow Jimmy Graham in the NFC South. Johnson is a one-trick pony pass rusher, but excels in the role. Acho is a heady, versatile linebacker who can help right away on nickel downs. Paulson could be the Falcons' No. 2 tight end of the future. Zusevics will likely spend his first season on injured reserve.
The Falcons would have had to do something really special to earn anything higher than a C for this group. Because they did draft well after sitting out the first two rounds, Atlanta gets a C+.
|3.22||85||George Iloka, S|
from Boise St.
|Falcons need help all over their defense, this is a case of BPA. Not loving the TE options, willing to wait on the position.|
|3.26||89||Cam Johnson, DE|
|Easy pick. Adds a needed pass rusher to the fold. Good value here.|
|4.26||121||Emmanuel Acho, ILB|
|Curtis Lofton gone, enter Manny Acho. Solid value fills a void in RD 4.|
|5.22||149||David Paulson, TE|
|A TE to groom while Tony G. winds down his career. Our Pac12 buddies over at the Sickness know what kind of hands this kid possesses. Good value here.|
|7.22||212||Markus Zusevics, OT|
|BPA. From the OL factory of Ferentz, at this point, Zusevics can develop into a solid reserve OL.|
