Very Simple Question

5 posts in this topic

I was thinking DT in the 1st Round; I know you don't like that, but the NFL web site  has the FALCONS going Defensive Tackle in the second round.

Whether the need is 1st or 2nd or beyond, how much does it change with the acquisition of POE?

I actually really like that mock for us.

1) Jordan Willis (EDGE)

2) Carlos Watkins (DT)

3) Bucky Hodges (TE)

4) Sean Harlow (OG)

Seems like that's pretty early for Willis, but I know he's shot up a lot of boards since the combine.

There is no way we take a DT at 31, but it's possible if he is clearly BPA to take one lower. The Falcons probably would envision that player replacing Hageman/Poe if he walks. Entering the season, DT may need a mid-round pick, but 2nd isn't that appealing unless it's BPA.

Now, if we trade down from 31? I wouldn't mind a DT as long as OL is deemed okay before the draft & our pass rush overall is considered set / a FS is less desirable to draft compared to a particular DT. It's all about the spot/players available; identifying needs for depth/prejections as a starter.
