    Oops!! Should have traded him straight up for Jake Locker when we had the chance.

    I doubt Bennett is solid at playing RT when you don't have any RTs. I've seen Toilolo tie up three guys and block everyone effectively (except Von Miller just about), plus he knows the system already. I'm ok with the signing.

    Hooper is the future, no need to compare a backup blocking TE to a feature TE. The extra 4M+ Bennett got may have prevented us from bringing in Poe, which was a much bigger need. We had the 8th best offense in NFL history with the TE group we have on roster.

    so you're basically saying either you haven't watched toilolo play, or don't have a good sense of what his value is. There have been several posts already by people who are generally considered here as cap guru's that have said this was a good contract. Toilolo has played his part and filled his role very well, and what he got paid is pretty much right in line with his value bennett on the other hand, (either of the current bennett brothers currently in the NFL) is pretty much a cancer type player that I wouldn't want here, IMO GB over paid

    No, we could have stopped Brady in this game by being efficient in play calling and if our offense could have held up. We left the defense on the field too long If they don't do something to shore up the offensive line so they can hold on for 60 minutes a game instead of dying out in the 4th quarter - then we are in the same boat. I love what they've done - but they have to address depth and stamina on the OL.

    This is just such an awesome pick-up from every possible aspect. I have to confess I'm looking forward to seeing this D on the field as much or more than our history-making offense. It's going to be straight eye-candy to watch after what we've been through recently on that side of the ball.

    Something positive from R The Great?!?!?! Just look at what we lost versus what we have gained on the DL.... Lost = Babs and TJax Gained = Poe and Crawford MAJOR UPGRADE to the Defense Front 7, at no expense to the rest of the defense!!! That is what is exciting...and we still have the draft!

    WFW is here to get shots in...that's it. He never engages in serious discussion. He made the majority of his posts in rival central. He has to have a rival he can troll. It's what he does.

    Budda Baker, FS - Washington 5'10", 195lbs - 4.45/40 - When I watch him on tape, the player he most reminds me of is Tyrann Mathieu, the Honey Badger. He is an undersized safety but just has a knack for making plays and being all over the field. Although small, Baker is a physical player which you would not anticipate. Here is NFL.com scouting report: OVERVIEW Baker's given name is Bishard, but has gone by Budda since birth because his mother thought he looked like a Buddha doll. Nothing Zen about his game, though, as he's been a starter for the Huskies since he stepped on campus. The former Washington state high school 100-meter champion (and three-time state football champ) was honorable mention All-Pac 12 as a freshman (80 tackles, INT, six pass break-ups). Baker garnered first-team all-conference honors in 2015 (49 tackles, seven PBU) and 2016 (team-leading 71 tackles, 10 for loss, two INT, six PBU). STRENGTHS Tremendously explosive and passionate in his play. Former high school track sprinter with good play speed. Screams off the edge as a blitzer. Always bouncing on balls of his feet just waiting to race to the action on a dead sprint. Plays with smooth backpedal and diagonal shuffle. Has a shiftiness that allows him to mirror change of direction in space. Plus instincts from any coverage areas. Allows quarterback's eyes and pattern recognition to carry him around the field. Not easily pulled from coverage responsibilities by bait routes around him. Has the click and close ability of a cornerback in coverage. Ball skills are solid. Plays with exceptional aggression. Accelerates through receivers to jar the pass loose. Tackle finisher who races to the throw to end plays at the catch point. Scouts use terms like "winner" and "top notch person" to describe him. WEAKNESSES Undersized safety in a smaller frame. Could struggle to carry 200 pounds as a pro. Gets big-boyed by tight ends from the slot. Lack of size may limit how NFL teams can use him. Aggressive shoulder rolls into running backs could cause future health issues. Force as a tackler just average against big running backs. Forced into grab and drag scenarios to get running backs down at times. Small hesitation to accelerate when forced to open and sprint down the field. Can be too overzealous when stepping downhill to tackle. May need to play with a little more discipline and control as an NFL tackler. SOURCES TELL US "I would leave him as a centerfielder and then roll him down over the slot if you needed too. He's too small to cover tight ends, but he's got great instincts in coverage which is why he should shine as a single-high." - NFC area scout NFL COMPARISON Bob Sanders (I don't like this comparison because Sanders, while a good player, was oft-injured and does not have the ball skills of Budda) BOTTOM LINE Undersized free safety with the heart of a linebacker. Baker plays with a competitive desire that leaps off the field when you watch him thanks to elite football character and above-average explosiveness. While he is undersized, he makes up for it with his football instincts and plus play speed. Baker has the talent to become a play-making safety with Pro Bowl potential if he can sustain his health. I see his upside as a Pro-Bowl free safety with the center-field ability of a poor man's Earl Thomas. He could transform the back of our secondary and allow more aggressive cornberback play. Baker is no pansy as you can see in these highlights - he will hit and support the run. Would love to get him in 2nd round but his likely range to be selected is #20-#45. I don't know that I would want to take him w/ our first pick - but I would not hate it!

    there were a lot of contributing factors to Hooper's limited production. To name a few, late getting started because of that dumb pac 12 rule, Played behind Tamme and didn't get the targets that much (though man the ones he got were wow!) then got hurt and missed a few games. Throw on top of that (pun intended) he played hurt after coming back from the injury. I personally expect him to have a stellar year, although I DO indeed agree with your 'fretting over not having another legit weapon at TE' for now. I do think there's something with Perkins maybe we're not quite privy to? As for both of those guys, even the GOAT Gonzalez wasn't all that great his first few years either

    When you say "our only good safety" and "didn't have a competent nickel...." that's not injury issues, it's roster discipline. We had a top 5 CB go down and got BETTER. Lol. We had our starting SS, 3 LB injuries, 2 top WR injuries, backup SS, split RB, and Starting Edge Rusher all have injuries

    4 players on defense including if not or best 2nd best player on defense.. Just because they weren't at the same position as yall doesn't mean they were nothing.. Every position is a key position when the starter is down

    I love people who count out the guy who almost took the starting spot from chester in preseason just because he was inactive due to garland playing both ways... honestly we need LB depth bc Reynolds and ish are not real depth, we need a good swing tackle with schrader and jake getting nicked up a good bit. We need FS depth, long story short the Falcons can go BPA after the 2nd or 3rd round probably

    I love the addition - and I think it's all part of Quinn's game plan. He couldn't build the team in one or two off-seasons - it takes time. He's putting "his" kind of players on the team - and Poe is a fit here. I just think the pressure could have held up if the offense had done their part. Let's face it though - it didn't matter because coaching screwed the pooch with less than 5 minutes in the game and the opportunity to run the clock and go up another score. Situational football - that's where we failed.

    If OJ Howard were to fall to #31, you turn the card in. He is great - and I don't even necessarily want TE - this would be the classic example of taking what the draft gives you.

    It is not a terrible effort. I know a lot of people are excited Tanoh but I just cannot. I see his upside as a edge setting runstopper at DE with maybe 3 sacks/yr. Backup initially and start in 2-3yrs. To not get a free safety in this deep class is pretty bad....Best defensive back class - maybe ever. Also, I believe we need to get one of the best OGs - I am flexible on this as we might have a good option already in Schweizer or Garland. I like Takk(1st) and Jalen(7th) but not much in between.

    Okay so I really had only seen Reddick at the senior bowl and a couple of small clips, but after watching some of his games from last season I have to say I think this guy is going to be a star. He is an elite athlete and changes direction extremely well which contributes to his insane ability to sift through traffic. He rushed the passer so well in college because he was so much faster and could move around tackles without a lot of contact. If a lineman got his hands on him he didn't really disengage well. If he was playing SAM I think he could become a superstar here. We could use him as an off ball linebacker a lot of the time, and when he would be asked to rush the passer he possess the explosiveness and athleticism to beat NFL tackles with a pure speed rush as long as he wasn't asked to play on the line of scrimmage on running downs. He could also be an outstanding WILL and could be a very productive blitzer. Him and Deion Jones could be deadly with Poe and Grady in front of them. I really do think he has a good chance to go top ten in this draft, but if he doesn't I think he is the kind of player Quinn will fall in love with and make a trade.

    Thanks. I learned about the rookie salary-cap and how it impacts the overall team salary-cap last year when I did a similar type of topic thread. I too think that it is very interesting, but highly complex at the same time.

    I wouldnt say that we were all that healthy last season outside of the o-line. We just had guys who could step up. We lost Tru, Tamme, Shelby, Spoon, Ishmael, Clayborn for the season; Campbell for multiple games, Neal for multiple games, Hooper for multiple games and Julio was pretty much hurt all season. And don't forget Mack played the SB on a broken leg and we also lost Schraeder and Coleman for that game.

    Let Babs walk, cut Jackson and focus on trying to sign Dontari Poe. KC will probably prefer to sign Eric Berry and go after Star Lotulelei in FA or draft another Nose in the draft. Jarrett continues to beast on the line and having an athletic NT next to him who can take on double teams and still be effective against the run and pass would be huge for the Falcons and Jarrett. I would than draft a pass rusher and SDE in the first 2 rounds to go along with Poe and Jarrett.
