    The Falcons need to be better at identifying and drafting DT talent, not spending top dollar in FA for it. That's how you stay in cap ****.

    Statistically speaking, we weren't that great on defense the year we went to the NFCC, either. We ranked on the wrong side of every single defensive category in the NFL. But our offense was so good that it literally masked how bad our defense actually was. What did we have that we haven't had since 2012? You guessed it, a running game.
    That off-season, we got rid of two of the most important pieces to the success of that team, Abe & Turner. What made Abe irreplaceable was the guy was clutch. Seemed like every time we needed a big play on D, he was the one who stepped up and made it happen.
    That off-season, Dimitroff overplayed his hand and thought the Falcons were more talented than they were. 3 seasons later, we're still trying to fix this roster.

    We have to remember, there was a time not so long ago that Seattle's defense wasn't that good either. And to be honest, they've been luckier than they've been good in the draft. Since 2009, they've drafted only 3 guys within the first 4 rds that make an impact on their roster (Thomas-1st, Wagner-2nd & Irvin-1st). Outside of those 3 guys, it's been bust after bust. Where they have made their money have been in the later rounds (Chancellor-5th, Sherman-5th, Maxwell-6th & Smith-7th).
    Later rds is where Dimitroff struggles. He hasn't done a very good job of finding those diamond in the rough players.

    I'm just saying that not all the players that most people think that will be gone in the first 7 picks may not actually be gone by pick 8. There is a chance that Beasley could be available.
    When people say that the Falcons would be stuck with the 3rd or 4th best pass rusher vs Gurley, what if the Falcons value those pass rushers slightly higher than Gurley on their board as well?
    All in all, we won't know until Thursday.
