Mock Draft Monitor 5.0

After a busy start to free agency, NFL writers across the Web have been adjusting their draft predictions based on the latest signings. Here's a look at some of the latest mock draft projections for the Falcons:

Anlaysis:Just a week after Laquon Treadwell became a popular choice for the Falcons, not a single wide receiver appears on the most recent list. This is most likely because of the Mohamed Sanu acquisition: By locking up the electric athlete to a five-year deal, Atlanta believes it's found the No. 2 WR to play opposite Julio Jones.

Although the Falcons inked Sanu, Alex Mack and several D-linemen to new deals, linebacker depth remains thin. So it's not surprising to see all 10 writers go in that direction. With four nods apiece, Darron Lee and Reggie Ragland share this week's majority.

Lee, who's been a majority leader for the last month, helped his stock by excelling at Ohio State's Pro Day. According to NFL.com's Gil Brandt, the 6-foot-1, 236-pounder "showed that he is an athlete who moves around well."

While Ragland deserves much of the praise he's garnered, his combine and Pro Day numbers have raised concerns. After not participating in the bench press in Indianapolis, he only put up 13 reps last Friday—fewer than all but one linebacker at the combine. Additionally, he opted not to run the 40 in Tuscaloosa after recording a pedestrian 4.72-second time at Lucas Oil Stadium.
