EXPERT: Matt Tabeek - Falcons digital managing editor

PICK: Jawaan Taylor, OT, Florida

LAST MOCK PUBLISHED: March 13

TABEEK'S ANALYSIS: "The Falcons finally solidify the right side of the offensive line with the 6-foot-5, 334-pound Taylor, a three-year starter at Florida. Taylor possesses a rare combination of power, size, length and mobility — which should help protect Matt Ryan and create running lanes for Devonta Freeman."

EXPERT: Mel Kiper - ESPN football analyst

PICK: Ed Oliver, DT, Houston

LAST MOCK PUBLISHED: Feb. 18

KIPER'S ANALYSIS: "Oliver's first step off the ball is one of the fastest I've seen from a defensive tackle. And yes, his play was picked apart throughout the 2018 season, but he's a fantastic prospect who has a ways to go to reach his ceiling. He could do that in the right situation in the NFL. As I mentioned in my first Mock Draft, he could be a Day 1 replacement if Atlanta doesn't bring back free agent Grady Jarrett." To see all of Kiper's latest mock draft, click here.

EXPERT: Todd McShay - ESPN senior writer

PICK: Christian Wilkins, DT, Clemson

LAST MOCK PUBLISHED: March 6

McSHAY'S ANALYSIS: "Putting Wilkins right next to Grady Jarrett, whom the Falcons franchise-tagged, would help fix a run defense that allowed nearly 5 yards per carry last season. Wilkins is an explosive interior player who was a four-year starter for the defending national champs." To see all of McShay's latest mock draft, click here.

EXPERT: Chad Reuter - NFL.com draft analyst

PICK: Ed Oliver, DT, Houston

LAST MOCK PUBLISHED: March 7

REUTER'S ANALYSIS: "It appears Oliver's stock did not get a boost coming out of the combine. The Falcons could get a bargain here, though, pairing Oliver's quickness with Grady Jarrett, who received the franchise tag, in the middle of their defense."

EXPERT: Charley Casserly - NFL.com media analyst

PICK: Jawaan Taylor, OT, Florida

LAST MOCK PUBLISHED: Feb. 19

CASSERLY'S ANALYSIS: "Adding more protection for their franchise QB is the No. 1 offseason goal of the Falcons." To see all of Casserly's latest mock draft, click here.

EXPERT: Maurice Jones-Drew - NFL.com analyst

PICK: Quinnen Williams, DT, Alabama

LAST MOCK PUBLISHED: Feb. 12

JONES-DREW'S ANALYSIS: "With the (potential) loss of free agent Grady Jarrett, Dan Quinn adds the best interior lineman in the draft." To see all of Jones-Drew's latest mock draft, click here.

EXPERT: Lance Zierlein - NFL Media draft analyst

PICK: Jonah Williams, OT, Alabama

LAST MOCK PUBLISHED: Jan. 29

ZIERLEIN'S ANALYSIS: "Some see Williams as a tackle, some as a guard, and some as a center. I see him as a rock-solid technician who gets guys blocked and can become a plus starter right away." To see all of Zierlein's latest mock draft, click here.

EXPERT: Bucky Brooks - NFL.com analyst

PICK: Ed Oliver, DT, Houston

LAST MOCK PUBLISHED: Feb. 27

BROOKS' ANALYSIS: "The Houston standout is the urgent athlete Dan Quinn covets on his defense. Despite missing some time in his final collegiate season due to injury, Oliver's disruptive potential makes him a worthy possibility for this pick." To see all of Brooks' latest mock draft, click here.

PREVIOUS BROOKS PICKS:

EXPERT: Daniel Jeremiah - NFL Media analyst

PICK: Brian Burns, DE, Florida St.

LAST MOCK PUBLISHED: March 5

JEREMIAH'S ANALYSIS: "Burns put on the necessary weight in the offseason and had a phenomenal combine workout." To see all of Jeremiah's latest mock draft, click here.

EXPERT: Peter Schrager - "Good Morning Football" Host

PICK: Christian Wilkins, DT, Clemson.

LAST MOCK PUBLISHED: Feb. 28

SCHRAGER'S ANALYSIS: "The Falcons' roster was ravaged by injuries a season ago, and they have free agents at many key positions. I wouldn't be shocked if Atlanta added Wilkins -- the third defensive lineman out of Clemson in my top 15 -- if he's on the board at 14. His college numbers are absurd from the DT spot: 208 total tackles, 45 tackles for loss, 17 sacks and 56 quarterback pressures across four seasons, with two national championships as cherries on top."

EXPERT: Ryan Wilson - CBS Sports writer

PICK: Ed Oliver, DT, Houston

LAST MOCK PUBLISHED: March 11

WILSON'S ANALYSIS: "Oliver is a top-5 talent but he's been out of sight, out of mind since early in the college football season. It's not his fault, but other players have flashed in the meantime and the Falcons land Oliver, who will be a 3-technique terror in the NFL" To see all of Wilson's latest mock draft, click here.

PREVIOUS WILSON PICKS:

EXPERT: Chris Trapasso - CBS Sports writer

PICK: Cody Ford, OL, Oklahoma

LAST MOCK PUBLISHED: Feb. 22

TRAPASSO'S ANALYSIS: "How about something other than a defensive tackle for the Falcons in Round 1? Since Dan Quinn's arrival in Atlanta, the Falcons have poured early draft capital into the defense ... then they drafted Calvin Ridley in the first round last year. Ford can start at right guard from Day One and give the Falcons a great return on investment." To see all of Trapasso's latest mock draft, click here.

PREVIOUS TRAPASSO PICKS:

EXPERT: R.J. White - CBS Sports writer

PICK: Rashan Gary, DE, Michigan

LAST MOCK PUBLISHED: March 13

WHITE'S ANALYSIS: "The Falcons are in a great spot here to add some front four help for their defense, and with the way the first 13 picks shake out, that means going with Gary, whose talent is apparent even if it didn't show up in his collegiate results. Dan Quinn could choose to move him around a bit on the line and see if he can exploit favorable matchups." To see all of White's latest mock draft, click here.

PREVIOUS WHITE PICKS:

EXPERT: Pete Prisco - CBS Sports senior writer

PICK: Christian Wilkins, DT, Clemson

LAST MOCK PUBLISHED: March 13

PRISCO'S ANALYSIS: "They have dominant inside player from Clemson in Grady Jarrett, so why not add another? Wilkins was impressive on a good defensive line." To see all of Prisco's latest mock draft, click here.

PREVIOUS PRISCO PICKS:

EXPERT: Will Brinson - CBS Sports senior writer

PICK: Ed Oliver, DT, Houston

LAST MOCK PUBLISHED: March 6

BRINSON'S ANALYSIS: "Who knows where Oliver will actually end up going, but this feels like a pretty decent floor considering the Falcons need help on defense, Oliver is that malleable type of lineman who fits their scheme and he has a massive amount of upside."

PREVIOUS BRINSON PICKS:

EXPERT: Jared Dubin - CBS Sports writer

PICK: Christian Wilkins, DT, Clemson

LAST MOCK PUBLISHED: March 14

DUBIN'S ANALYSIS: "Even with Grady Jarrett getting the franchise tag, the Falcons can still use some help up front. Wilkins is a nice piece who makes a ton of plays in the backfield and can rush the passer a bit as well." To see all of Dubin's latest mock draft, click here.

PREVIOUS DUBIN PICKS:

EXPERT: Jon Ledyard - The Draft Network

PICK: Ed Oliver, DT, Houston

LAST MOCK PUBLISHED: Feb. 25

LEDYARD'S ANALYSIS: "Same pick that everyone makes for the Falcons? Sure, but tell me Oliver won’t be the perfect fit for Atlanta? I believe they will be one of a handful of NFL teams with a Round 1 grade on Oliver, making his most likely landing spot anywhere from 14-26. His penetrating style will be perfect for Atlanta, but developing a pass rush plan should be a priority for Oliver’s rookie season." To see all of Ledyard's latest mock draft, click here.
