  1. Yeah, I typically make it a priority to pick players who are either mocked right at the selection or after. Lauletta was my exception. He’s going to be a player.
  2. So anybody who knows me knows that one of my favorite times of the year is getting to watch film at the end of the college season and create my annual mock draft. Also, anybody who knows me knows that I have some of the most hideous mock drafts in AFMB history. Dating back to 2013 (my 2012 is lost), here's every what got us to 2018. This is why I'm not an NFL general manager. 2013: (this sucks) 1st round-Sam Montgomery, DE, LSU 2nd round-Sean Porter, OLB, Texas A&M 3rd round-Stepfan Taylor, RB, Stanford 4th round-B.W. Webb, CB, William and Mary 4th round-LaVar Edwards, DE, LSU 5th round-Corey Fuller, WR, Virginia Tech 6th round-Denard Robinson, KR, Michigan 7th round-Cooper Taylor, FS, Richmond 7th round-Vince Williams, MLB, Florida State 2014: (this sucks less) 1st round-Taylor Lewan, LT, Michigian 2nd round-Kyle Van Noy, OLB, BYU 3rd round-Dion Bailey, FS, USC 4th round-CJ Fiedorowicz, TE, Iowa 5th round-Daniel McCullers, DT, Tennessee 6th round-John Urschel, OG, Penn State 6th round-Max Bullough, ILB, Michigan State 7th round-Marcus Lucas, WR, Mizzou 7th round-Max Hall, OT, Bellhaven 2015 (back to the suckage) 1st round-Randy Gregory, DE, Nebraska 2nd round-Paul Dawson, MLB, TCU 3rd round-David Johnson, RB, Northern Iowa 4th round-Darryl Williams, LT, Oklahoma 5th round-Chris Conley, WR, Georgia 6th round-Alani Fua, OLB, BYU 7th round-Corey Cooper, FS, Nebraska 7th round-David Mahina, TE, BYU 2016 (the jury is out but not looking good) 1st round-Emmanuel Ogbah, DE, Oklahoma State 2nd round-Braxton Miller, WR, Ohio State 3rd round-Tyler Matakevich, MLB, Temple 4th round-Jayron Kearse, SS, Clemson 7th round-Sioasi Aiono, OG, Utah 2017 (potentially the worst one yet) 1st round (31st overall), Caleb Brantley DT, Florida 2nd round (63rd overall), Dan Feeney, OG, Indiana 3rd round (95th overall), Jordan Leggett, TE, Clemson 4th round (136th overall), John Johnson, FS, Boston College 5th round (174th overall), TJ Logan, RB, North Carolina 6th round (214th overall), Dylan Cole, OLB, Missouri State 7th round (249th overall), Conrad Ukropina, K, Stanford So without furthier adieu! Lets make my 2018 Falcons mock draft the first success ever. "With the 26th pick in the 2018 NFL draft, the Atlanta Falcons select Taven Bryan, Defensive tackle out of Florida." This is the 2nd year in a row I've taken a Florida defensive tackle in the 1st round, with my last year's choice being arguably the worst pick I've ever mocked. As much as I like Maurice Hurst, the heart issue is way too big of a risk for a first round selection. Bryan showed great production on the field and is considered a high character person off the field. Charlie Campbell with Walter Football mentioned that Bryan was a name the Falcons were interested in, and his tape shows why. He has the size and strength of a tackle, and the speed and agility of a defensive end. Grady Jarrett and Taven Bryan would make for a deadly 4-3 tandem. 2nd round (58th overall): Duke Ejiofor, defensive end, Wake Forest As much as I hate to say it, Adrian Clayborn will probably not be in an Atlanta Falcon uniform come week 1. Brooks Reed is a solid rotational defensive end, but is not starting caliber. Even with the hope that Takk and Beasley both blossom in the pass rushing department, Clayborn's production will need to be replaced. I've seen Ejiofor mocked as high as the beginning of the 2nd round and as late as the 4th round. He duplicates Clayborn's size at 6'3 275 lbs and is known for his power. Showed great production last season with 10.5 sacks and 17 tackles for loss. With Bryan and Ejiofor filling in our first 2 picks, it shows prioritization on the defensive line. 3rd round (90th overall): Anthony Miller, wide receiver, Memphis Here is our slot receiver for the future, and an obvious replacement for Taylor Gabriel. Miller put up elite production and showed himself to be one of the best receivers in the nation when it comes to yards after the catch. He's 5'11 190 lbs and was a state champion in the 110 meter hurdle. I saw him absolutely take over against UConn last year (15 catches for 225 yards) and his film jumps out. I hate using over the top comparisons, but a poor man's Antonio Brown is what I see. 4th round (126h overall): Sean Welch, offensive lineman, Iowa The reason I put offensive lineman and not a specific position is because Welch is a swiss army knife. In fact, his scouting report makes you think of Ben Garland. Welch can excel as either a left or right guard, but his ideal position is probably center due to his size. With that being said, he also played tackle in a few games while at Iowa. I don't understand bringing Garland back for one year at his price tag, so why not draft his replacement for 2019 and beyond? Even if Welch doesn't compete for a starting spot, he's a capable interior lineman. 6th round (200th overall): Kyle Lauletta, quarterback, Richmond In all actuality, Lauletta will probably be gone by the 6th round, but this is my pipe dream selection. Lauletta's college statistics certainly are not eye popping, but his intangibles are through the roof. I was actually introduced to Lauletta during an NFL Radio interview on my way back from St. Louis. Extremely intelligent, well spoken, comes from a football background, and listed Matt Ryan as one of the quarterbacks he would like to learn from. Taking Lauletta in the late rounds allows you to groom him during Ryan's final contract, and not worry about spending 5 million dollars a season for a backup QB who will probably never leave the sidelines. This kid will be a starter someday. 7th round (244th overall): Tanner Muse, safety, Clemson A big safety (6'3 220 lbs) who plays extremely aggressive. Late 7th round selections typically are training camp bodies, but Muse is a player who could fight for a roster spot. Safety depth is a potential concern going into the season, and Muse fills that role. 7th round (256th overall): Andy Phillips, kicker, Utah Matt Bryant will still be elite in 2018 and potentially 2019/2020, but having another kicker on the back burner isn't a terrible idea when you look at Bryant's age. Being that kickers are competitively picked up as UDFAs, the Mr. Irrelevant pick is first dibs on an NFL caliber leg. Phillips was extremely accurate all 4 years at Utah, making over 80 percent of his career field goals and going 132 for 133 on extra points. 2018 Draft Summary 1 (26): Taven Bryan, DT, Florida 2 (58): Duke Ejiofor, DE, Wake Forest 3 (90): Anthony Miller, WR, Memphis 4 (126): Sean Welsh, G/C, Iowa 6 (200): Kyle Lauletta, QB, Richmond 7 (244): Tanner Muse, FS, Clemson 7 (256): Andy Phillips, K, Utah
  3. It was a genuine question
  4. LT: Matthews, Sambrailo LG: Levitre, Garland C: Mack, Garland RG: Schweitzer, Harlow RT: Scheader, Paztor
  5. How many NFL players have won a Rookie of the year as well as an MVP? That’s a genuine question, I have no idea. It’s certainly a sign of elite quarterback play. Matt Ryan will always be OUR quarterback. Most of us remember that dreadful draft day when we didn’t hear Glenn Dorsey’s name at number 3 overall. We were there for the first pass to Michael Jenkins. We’ve survived every Swift thread bashing him, and every ESPN pundit trashing him. I’m so glad we’ve had him for 10 years, and here’s to another 3 years of elite QB play.
  6. Ledbetter is absolutely terrible and he needs to be fired for his atrocious reporting. With that being said, I think his statistic is accurate and just a terrible coincidence that it invokes the 28-3 score.
  7. If you click on the link it explains all of that in detail.
  8. Mods, if this is a repost feel free to close. NFL 1000 has some truly awesome analysis on the DT position. This is the top 100 tackles in the league, and Grady comes in at 4. That’s ahead of Kawann Short, Gerald McCoy, Ndamukong Suh, Damon Harrison, Malik Jackson, Linval Joseph, and many other great tackles. This kid is truly special and a soon to be star in this league. It’ll be nice to see a father/son Ring of Honor ceremony with him and Jessie Tuggle. From the article: Snap Quickness: 22/25 Pass Rush: 18/25 Run Defense: 19/25 Tackling: 13/15 Position Value: 7/10 Overall Grade: 79/100 Grady Jarrett is one of the most active, explosive interior defensive linemen in the NFL. He displays outstanding natural leverage, elite snap quickness, explosive hands and a relentless motor. The three-year veteran also recognizes traps, pulls and screens quickly, and he shows elite pursuit skills to chase down plays from the back side. Jarrett is difficult to reach due to his upfield quickness and accurate hands at the point of attack, which allow him to win outside leverage. He's capable of stacking the point man on doubles or dropping to a knee and splitting. The Clemson product has a variety of techniques to win as a pass-rusher, including a club swim move, hump and spin. He quickly recognizes slide protection to his side, demonstrating good lateral quickness to penetrate across opponents' faces and move the QB off his spot. —NFL1000 DT Scout, Brandon Thorn One of the greatest mysteries of recent drafts is how Jarrett, one of the fundamental pieces of the great Clemson defenses when he was there, lasted until the fifth round in 2015. Size was a concern for multiple teams, but as Jarrett has shown, his 6'0", 305-pound frame doesn't matter. Jarrett is primarily an active 3-tech who bombs through blockers to get through the pocket, but he can also line up as a 1-tech between the center and guard, using active hands to defeat his opponent. —NFL1000 Lead Scout, Doug Farrah
  9. The whole reality TV thing was kinda unsettling, but more power to him I guess. I remember when we drafted him in 2008 and that YouTube highlight video from when he was at Montana started surfacing on AFMB. I think a week after the draft, we were hyping up Kroy more than the Matt Ryan pick. Such a good draft overall, and to think it was TD’s first. Kroy was impossible not to root for. A consistently solid rotater on our defense for a number of years. If you took his motor and combined it with Vic Beasley, you’d have the best pass rusher in football. I wish him all the best and have fond memories.
  10. At one point, pretty much nobody on the moderator side wanted ABF to exist (before JPowers). If it was deleted tomorrow, I think the main people at HQ would give the mod team letter of commendations. Typically, any big complaint that gets called in or mailed comes from this section of this board. This dates back to Jay Adams. With that being said, I love ABF and that’s why I moderate this side of town with minimal attention. What made ABF so great in years prior was self-moderation, and not constant intervention from other posters saying what can and can’t be said. Granted, we absolutely need to step in when derogatory comments are made that grossly violate the COC. As for me not letting Bob start the 2nd thread, if that’s legitimately upsetting to him, he can feel free to start another one.
  11. I still want Mitt.
  12. I’ve been called worse!
  13. I’m not kidding when I say 80 percent of our reports on AFMB are coming from the other thread. These reports are often done in bulk. With the limited manpower that we have, we simply cannot police ABF or that particular thread daily. To hopefully limit all of this, much fewer warnings will be given out on this topic. Please be as civil as possible without making comments that could be insinuated as racist, sexist, or trans/homophobic. Thanks!
  14. Well they better tighten him up then.
  15. To say that he is becoming our Earl Thomas does not in any way say he is skillfully comparable to Earl Thomas. Similarly, Keanu Neal was drafted to be our Kam Chancellor and Deion Jones our Bobby Wagner. To think that this implies we drafted them to be just as good is a fundamental misunderstanding. The statement is based off of our defensive scheme under Dan Quinn and Marquand Manuel.
