Stanford tight end Coby Fleener keeps his stranglehold on the consensus pick among our sampling of mock drafts this week as DraftTek.com, DraftBreakdown.com, MockingtheDraft.com and FalcFans.com all give the nod to the Falcons selecting him with the No. 55 overall pick in April's NFL Draft.
While tight end has been a popular selection on the Mock Monitor during the past few weeks, the mocks have trended toward cornerback and offensive tackle, as well.
This week, we see four offensive tackles make the Monitor — Ohio State's Mike Adams, UAB's Matt McCants, Boise State's Nate Potter and Oklahoma State's Levy Adcock.
Adams right now is sitting in that late first round, early second round projection position, so it's looking like he's doubtful to fall to the Falcons in the late second. The other three, however, will likely be there.
Despite having one of the best mullets in college sports, Adcock is projected to fall much further in the draft than the Falcons' selection in the second round. In fact, one reputable draft site has Adcock as a seventh-rounder. At 6-foot-6 and 322 pounds, however, the thought is that he could go much higher because his size is something coaches can work with.
Speaking of size, McCants is another large human being, coming in at 6-7, 309 pounds, but his Senior Bowl week wasn't exactly sparking and he ended up on the ground more than he should have. Still, most surmise that teams will be attracted to his size.
An AP All-America selection in 2011, Potter may be the most talented of the three. From a technique and mechanics standpoint, Potter appears to have the edge on McCants and Adcock, but Potter's arm length is a big question mark.
