The NFL combine is in the books and while we always say that the tape (body of work) is what matters most when it comes to evaluating players – and, of course, the medical reports and interviews – the combine results can still help or hurt a player's draft stock.
That said, a few players certainly helped themselves while others solidified what scouts, coaches, NFL execs and draft experts already thought about the majority of them. And, well, a few players didn't perform as well as expected but, like I said, the tape doesn't lie.
So how did it all affect my latest mock draft? Quite a bit, but mostly in the middle and later part of the first round.
And when it comes to the Falcons' pick at 16, well, I'm going back to my original mock draft. I think the way things line up right now, Atlanta will be able to land one of the top edge rushers in this class – one that fits right into everything coach Dan Quinn wants to do on defense, too.
So, without further ado, here is mock draft 5.0. Let me know how you feel about the pick here. A new version will drop every Wednesday between now and the NFL Draft. Enjoy.
