Kiper previous projected the Falcons to select Illinois offensive lineman Jeff Allen, but that choice has changed now to Iowa State offensive lineman Kelechi Osemele, whose name has been pretty popular on the site this week. Check him out in our Mock Monitor: 11.0.

In the third round, Kiper has the Falcons selecting Miami (Florida) defensive end Oliver Vernon, who started just three games last year and amassed nine sacks during his three-year career with the Hurricanes.
