  1. Haha the chatter right before the whistle "he scared"
  2. I believe they're looking at C-Mac (even with AP), Lattimore, Foster, Howard and Barnett at pick #11; Kevin King, Engram, White and Ross at pick #32; and Cunningham, Samuel, and Lawson at #45. Five picks in the first 98 selections is an enviable place to be in any draft, let alone this year. I actually mock C-Mac No. 7 overall to LAC, but imagine this haul for the Saints: McCafferey (#11), Engram (#32) and Samuel (#45).
  3. Surprised GB didn't make a strong push, seems like it would have been nice fit for both parties. AP could have been the workhorse to Ty Montgomery if the Packers were to go that route.
  4. Gonna be critical to our season we handle our business early. At first glance the early bye may look like a screw job, but the end of the season doesn't necessarily set up that bad if we navigate it properly. As someone pointed out earlier we kinda have a mini-bye in between weeks 14 & 15 with the Saints and Bucs; and with home games weeks 12, 13 & 14, if necessary, we can conceivably and comfortably rest players weeks 13 & 14 (Vikings and Saints, disrespectfully) with extra days of rest for everyone before a short travel to Tampa week 15. Then back home for Saints and short travel to Carolina to end the season. Beginning with @CHI, GB, @DET, BUF, bye & MIA gives us a realistic shot at 5-0 to start the season, and a relatively healthy group to face our annual mid-season gauntlet (nationally televised this year) before an opportunity to get slightly re-charged and hit our stride right before the playoffs. Again, we handle our business early the schedule can actually shape up quite nicely for us.
  5. Jabrill Peppers, Howard & Quincy Wilson, Obi Melifonwu, Jaylen Myrick, Jordan Willis, Avery Moss, Evan Engram & Ahkello Witherspoon
  6. I will do no such thing http://www.thefalcoholic.com/2017/4/21/15385158/falcons-praise-jabrill-peppers-who-could-be-an-option-in-the-2017-nfl-draft
  7. Top DBs are being paid higher avg salaries than RBs now. Wouldn't be surprised if the Falcons reach for a stud safety in the first.
  8. It's actually the reverse of this statement which is true; Peppers has 4.4 speed. His speed and athleticism gives him the range to play deep safety, while bringing the physicality and C/T of a player like Ismael to the position.
  9. I don't feel the same urgency to draft OL in this as most of you. Even reading tea leaves from the presser I come away with the impression the staff is confident enough in the guys currently on the roster to let them battle through TC; and if no adequate option emerges, then trade a future pick to a team willing to part with a serviceable vet (see Levitre). We are positioned in a unique place most teams only dream of, with a bevy of young talent that just so happens to be good enough to win now. This draft affords us the opportunity to complete our defense at multiple positions, regardless of your preferred player combo. OG can wait.
  10. 4.53-second 40-yard dash with 1.54-second 10-yard split 39” vertical jump 10’5” broad jump 6.85-second 3-cone drill 4.28-second short shuttle At 6'4" 255 lbs, there's your "screamin' demon" coming off the edge. That's the same thing Quinn wants paired with Beasley. Certainly not the gospel but PFF graded Willis as the nation's fifth highest pass rusher and top graded run defender. Want more juice? 97 percent of his pass rushes came from left end -- the very position we need to upgrade. The fit just makes too much sense to be so adamantly against it.
  11. Despite his unimpressive game tape he still had the production to back up his outstanding performance at the Combine
  12. Gil Brandt has Willis in his top 40 on his board... perhaps the FO is aware multiple teams feel the same?
  13. Jaylen Myrick may be another mid-to-late round gem to keep an eye on 5'10" 200lbs 4.28 speed Earl Thomas but faster
  14. Real big fan of Marcus Williams... I can't decide between Obi/Peppers in the first, or taking Williams in the second
