  1. To keep things in perspective: Yahoo sports had the below breakdown of the Falcons 2016 draft. Atlanta Falcons Grade we gave then: C- Funniest line in retrospect: “Deion Jones is a fast coverage linebacker, but neither [he nor Keanu Neal] are complete players yet.” Welp, at least we got the “fast coverage linebacker” part right. Best evaluation in retrospect: If you read what we said about most of the players, we had their evaluations pretty close. We just misjudged the value of those picks and felt most of them were overdrafted. How we did: We bemoaned their not drafting a defensive lineman that year, which proved to be a little short-sighted considering they almost won the Super Bowl. This might not have been the most exciting draft class in history, but we should have liked it a lot more at the time, it turns out. Fouled out to the third baseman on this one.
  2. Cody Ford Clelin Ferrell Christian Wilkins Tytus Howard Brian Burns Dexter Lawrence Ed Oliver Anthony Nelson Zack Gentry Daylon Mack Isaiah Johnson Mark Fields Lamont Gaillard Josiah Tauaefa Greedy Williams Michael Deiter Devine Ozigbo Jeffrey Simmons Devin Bush Jr. Max Scharping 1. First tie breaker = OL, DT, CB, Edge, S, TE 2. Second tie breaker = Jeffery Simmons, Mark Fields, Josiah Tauaefa 3. Third tie breaker = DT 4. Fourth tie breaker = 2 trades. 1 down and 1 up.
  3. https://thedraftnetwork.com/ Assuming no major FA moves. 1 Jonah Williams, OT Alabama Early entrant and three-year starter whose work ethic, attention to detail and desire to get better each day have made him a foundation piece of Alabama's dominant run. 2 Chris Lindstrom , IOL Boston College Lindstrom is one of the most athletic interior lineman in the 2019 draft with a rare ability to match movement quickness with anyone across from him 3 Daylon Mack, IDL Texas A&M Rarely stops churning feet as bull-rusher, allowing him to maximize his pocket push. 4 Isaac Nauta, TE Georgia He doesn't need scheme help to uncover against man coverage and has potential to become a solid move blocker to help elevate the perimeter run game. 4 Ben Burr-Kirven, LB Washington Small, hyper-instinctive linebacker who plays with "clear eyes, full heart" and consistently punches above his weight class for production totals that contradict his size 5 Anthony Nelson, EDGE Iowa Promising 4-3 defensive end prospect with outstanding length, good quickness and a play motor that keeps humming from snap to snap 5 Max Scharping, OT Northern Illinois Ascending tackle prospect with impressive combination of size and functional athletic ability. 6 Ryquell Armstead, RBTemple Possesses mindset and play strength for "gotta have it" short-yardage spots 7 Miles Boykin, WR Notre Dame Boykin's size, length and athleticism offers exciting potential as an outside receiver with mismatch potential, but he will have to learn how to counter press, improve his routes and become more competitive when the ball is in the air. His size won't matter if he doesn't learn to impose it on others. If that happens, he'll become an eventual starter with a high ceiling.
  4. I like the little bit of video I've seen of Ryquell Armstead. Finishes strong - very physical with good speed. Another back that should be available day 3.
  5. Ryquell Armstead He's playing in the AAF. will be free agent this summer.
  6. You're right - in the 4th probably should have went for Isaiah Johnson instead of LB.
  7. based on the fact the FO never does what is expected - it will probably be Kitchens or someone not on the list.
  8. OK with Vick - but, I despise the train horn.
  9. per Rotoworld: Raiders released DE Tank Carradine. Carradine requested his release after playing just 24 snaps over the first four games. The move clears a roster spot for Daryl Worley's return from suspension. A rotational run-stopper, Carradine should resurface with another team. Oct 5 - 5:39 PM Versatile run stopper kind of d-lineman. Do you think Falcons give him a look?
  10. Welcome Mr. Means.
  11. put on IR - ACL tear
  12. And for some reason his passes seemed even more slow Thursday night. You could tell when he was really trying to throw a bullet because the ball would come out nose down. That happens when you are really squeezing the ball and trying to muscle it for a bullet pass. He never seemed relaxed and in control. Maybe he is less confident in the play calling than what is being said publicly.
  13. perfect pick at top of screen to free up somebody but Ryan is locked on Julio.
  14. Robison or Hankins Or for a NON-guaranteed contract - Mychal Kendricks.
