    Tandy reacted to g-dawg in TD on the moment he "knew" who they would draft at 14   
    Yes Tandy this was posted already but a good topic and a good time to be on front page.  Leave it up.

    I haven't heard any talk at all.   Has he even worked out for any teams?   Maybe he's contemplating the right offer or retirement?

    Love Eric Berry.   Hometown is Atlanta, maybe he comes at a vet minimum.
    Problem is - he's 30 and there is a reason KC cut him.    What does he have left?    Could he be SS or would he need to be used as a nickel?    Just don't know.
    Without a doubt, one of the best - who overcame a lot to return to the field.   So - I would love it personally if they took a chance on him.

    I feel like the choices they are making point more to our depth issue and the drop off than replacing the key guys.    With the pressure on, I think Quinn would have made a one year deal with a starting caliber safety if he felt they were out for a long period.
    What is Willie Mo doing these days?

    Watch the defensive line in 2016 after Quinn took over and then watch them again the past two years and tell me you don't see a difference.

    They exchange 3rd Rd picks which is a + for KC.
    Still a 1st and 2nd + new contract is a lot. They do have an extra 2nd from the Ford trade though.

    I just don't see it.   If it's Lawrence we are after - we can trade down and pick up an extra draft pick or take our OL pick here - and trade back into the first for Lawrence.
    If it's what the Falcons decide to do - then I'll just have to live with it, of course.   It's not that I don't think he's a good player - I just think that's too high
    If the Falcons have absolute info that someone is going to pick him - like they said they did when they picked up Neal - then they will do as they see fit.   I love Neal but there were some premium players in that spot and our position of most need was definitely linebacker.  We hit it out of the park with Deion Jones in that position but it could have gone badly between 17 and 52 and we could have missed on that position altogether.  
    However, I trust our front office - and I just don't see this particular mock as the path.    But, I'm not in the draft room for a reason.

    I'm all for trading down and getting an extra pick or two myself, but you do run the risk of missing out on a player.

    I have seen a lot of mocks with Christian Wilkins going to Miami Dolphins right in front of Atlanta.   Outside of QB, it is their greatest need and - by all accounts,  the Dolphins appear willing to wait until 2020 which looks to be a better QB class at the top.
    As we all have been watching, no one has much connected Christian Wilkins to the Falcons - although his style of play, what he's good at and his off-field profile appear to match-up w/ the Falcons like hand-in-glove.
    I am not aware of private meetings/workouts w/ WILKINS but the Falcons have a good ability to hide those sometimes as we have seen in the past.
    IF the Falcons truly have dialed in on Christian Wilkins,  I could see them hopping Miami to a team like the Packers and maybe giving up our 4th rounder (#117) and maybe a 5th rounder in 2020 - it's only a 100 point jump so it wouldn't take much.
    I know we believe the Falcons may covet Dexter Lawrence more, and apparently Peter King must see the connection as well as no mock anywhere has Dexter Lawrence going in the top 20.
    I would like to see the Falcons maybe try and trade down 4-5 spots if Lawrence is the pick - definitely believe he will be available at #20.

    I agree.
    It’s silly to take Dex at #14.  Trade down.   I believe if Wilkins can slide by Miami, he will be the pick at #14.  I believe we have probably shown interest that the media hasn’t reported.
