We’ve reached pick No. 6. This selection belongs to the Atlanta Falcons.

The Falcons entered this offseason with primary draft needs that were very similar to the Tennessee Titans. The Falcons are another team who’s transitioning to a 3-4 defense. They need a pass-rusher. They also need someone who can protect Matt Ryan. Almost every mock draft you see will have Atlanta taking either a new pass-rushing OLB or a bookend tackle to protect their near $100-million investment at quarterback.

It’s time to examine who the Falcons will select at No. 6.
