The Falcons have taken the early lead in the NFC South -- at least when it comes to signing draft picks.

They now have signed five of their seven picks from the 2010 draft. The latest is third-round choice Mike Johnson, an offensive lineman from Alabama, who signed Saturday afternoon.

Along with Johnson, Corey Peters (third round), Joe Hawley (fourth round), Dominique Franks (fifth round) and Shann Schillinger (sixth round) already have signed.
