to many holes to fill

LB nicholas scared a lot of people in coverage.....people forgot how Peterson stepped up for us, and he will be leaving.

DE (people forget that we needed one with Abe and Biermann....and for some reason people are thinking with letting abe go and Osi come in, they think we got 2 DE's or something)

DT (we are hybrid and need a guy there)

CB (robinson gone)

CB (do you really trust Asante being hurt sometimes and a rookie who performed well???)

then we have not even talked about Offense.

and the D players are guys that need to be starting (minus the second CB we draft). therefore we cannot miss out on 1-4 rounds. and if we trade up guess what.....no team is going to take all our 5-7 picks and let us move up much (at most it would be trade 5-7; of what picks we can, and our 30. and we would get a 25 pick)

Falcons | May trade up in first round for CB

Sat, 13 Apr 2013 11:47:02 -0700

The Atlanta Falcons may look to trade up in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft in order to select a cornerback. University of Alabama CB Dee Milliner, Florida State CB Xavier Rhodes and University of Washington CB Desmond Trufant could be targets if the team does trade up.

The problem with the "win now" mentality is you might suffer later.

For a franchise that hasn't won a SB, I guess that "win now" might be appealing. For franchises that already have SB win(s), they probably are looking at things from a long-term perspective.

Don't forget you have still have to pay Ryan and Jones.

I think if TD is willing to trade up then he must be significantly high on someone, and as history shows it, his trade ups are usually worth it.

Everyone went nuts when we gave up all those picks for Julio, but there hasn't been another receiver like him or A.J. since then, so in TD I trust!

I understand our free agent signings will make the media say we are in win-now mode, but I really don't understand the sentiment. Ryan will be good for at least 7 more years. Julio is just getting started. We have a good young safety tandem and beast LB. We really just need one really good draft (at CB and DE) with maybe a few OL FA signing sprinkled in and we will be good for years to come. I'm not buying the win now perspective.

EIFERT!!! My dreams may be coming true!

No they are not. You need meds if you still believe we are getting a tight end. And now u seriously think we are trading up for one.

If we trade up for a CB, I'm setting myself on fire in front of the gates at Flowery Branch.

You better get your matches and gas ready

Lol I never said I think thats what we are doing, I said it was my dream I wish it would happen.. If we were trading up for Eifert we wouldnt have to move that high up. The guy is gonna be an absolute study and one of the best players from this draft class mark my words.

Apparently Miami really looking to trade down to the late first round. They pick at 12 and some sources are speculating that ATL and SF are good trade partners. If we move to 12 we would be getting someone like Rhodes I would assume, potentially Mingo or Jones.

As much as I like Rhodes, that's just too steep a price to pay. Moving 18 spots in a deep draft class seems silly.

Completely agree to much depth at corner in this draft I would rather have a guy like Taylor or Banks at 30 and keep our picks. But i think Rhodes has the highest ceilings of all the corners in the draft, just not really worth the moth from a supply and demand perspective. If we could get Anash or Star at 12 that might help us out a lot.

Worst draft ever to trade up in. We could move up 20 spots and still be selecting from the same talent level that we would in the late first. Not a lot of high end talent at the top of this draft. Moving up 20 places would require us to lose our 1st next year and that would be absolutely ********. There are no Julios in this draft, just 3 rounds worth of 2nd round picks.

I would love to get rhodes..........but no way I take him at 12
