    A-TowN.- reacted to FalconFanSince1970 in 2021 Offseason Re-Tooling Plan   
    Here’s the first cut of my 2021 offseason retooling plan. It will certainly change in the next few weeks with cuts, re-signs, free agency, pro days and a league decision on the 2021 salary cap. I’ll likely post an update after the first wave of cuts and free agency. Maybe a pre-draft version. Let’s start with the staff.
    Owner – Blank’s team went 18-30 and missed the playoffs over the last three seasons. That is our second 18-30 three year playoff drought since the 2012 season. It was time to cut ties with Dimi and Quinn. Especially after the 0-5 start in 2020. He did a great job quickly landing a new GM and coach who were both hot candidates. He needs to keep the pressure on this team and try to win in 2021, while building our long term vision. I think his leash will be short because he needs rest and his clock is ticking faster than most of ours. He deserves a Lombardi. President – Glad to see McKay stay involved. I'm more of a fan of his than most here. He has extensive experience in operations, is well connected to the league and has buddies in front offices that could lead to great trades. He was the the guy that traded the 15th pick for the 29th, a third and fourth round pick and used them on John Abraham, Jerious Norwood and Stephen Nicholas. Dude was good building trenches in TB and ATL as a GM and a decent cap manager. He also keeps Blank farther away from lifetime contracts that become boat anchors. General Manager – I'm sure Blank loves this hire, being on the diversity committee. Even though our archrivals will benefit from that move, we should benefit most. Likely upgrade over Dimi, but he'll have to deal with the issues Dimi left behind, like no cap space, no trenches and a top heavy roster whose two best players are aging. I like some of the things I heard so far. Especially his draft philosophy being closer to BPA than the needs based approach we had in the last 13 years. He should be focused on the trenches now that we finally figured out it starts up front. Head Coach - TATF finally got the offensive HC they opined for the last 13 years. Ex-offensive lineman. That alone should help. He's also an OC that will design the scheme and call plays. Runs a system TATF loves. Wants to be balanced. The best thing I've heard so far is he adjusts his scheme to his roster. Maybe on a weekly basis. Not sure yall can handle the four straight runs he had in his last game down a TD with three minutes left. His in game adjustments and time management execution will be critical. He'll have to establish a new culture and identity in six months. Coordinators – All of them will be new. I was hoping for Daboll and Phillips, but Smith and Pees are similar. We should be more balanced on offense and closer to a smash mouth squad overall. If Smith integrates the WR and TE talent pool into his attack and establishes a run game the offense could be lethal. The run game will be essential though. Pees needs more pieces on all three levels. Maybe up to four new starters on defense. I hear he will be multiple. 3-4, 4-3, 4-2 etc. Says our blitz will be unpredictable. Love hearing that. STs coordinator has his work cut out for him. Current Roster - These are the 42 players under contract as of 2/13/2021, as well as the open roster spots. Oh boy:
    QB – Matt Ryan, Kurt Benkert WR – Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, Russell Gage, Olamide Zaccheaus, Greg Dortch, Chris Rowland RB – Ito Smith, Qadree Ollison, Keith Smith, Tony Brooks-James, Open TE – Hayden Hurst, Open, Open OT – Jake Matthews, Kaleb McGary, Willie Beavers, Open OG – Chris Lindstrom, James Carpenter, Willie Wright OC – Matt Hennessy, Open NT – Tyeler Davison, Allen Bailey, Deadrin Senat, Chris Slayton, Open DE – Grady Jarrett, Marlon Davidson, John Cominsky, Open LB – Deion Jones, Foyesade Oluokun, Dante Fowler Jr., Mykal Walker, Open, Open CB – A.J. Terrell, Isaiah Oliver, Kendall Sheffield, Delrick Abrams, Chris Williamson, Open FS – Ricardo Allen, T.J. Green SS – Jaylinn Hawkins, Open PK – Elliott Fry KR – Olamide Zaccheaus P – Sterling Hofrichter LS – Josh Harris Salary Cap - Well we've been in a Troff cap chasm for at least six years. This year is no different. We'll have to kick that can a few more times and injure future caps. Just not on Ryan or Julio please. They are aging. Both are showing signs of decline and positioned to retire at a moment's notice. Our trade ears need to be open for them. Bloodline too. The 2021 cap has not been finalized, but it sounds like it will be in the $185M range. Spotrac has adjusted to that number and currently show us at -$23.2M with 42 players under contract (20 OFF, 19 DEF, 3 STs). We can free up $46.0M and get to $22.8M with these moves, but they will impact future cap tables:
    Cuts - Ricardo Allen, Allen Bailey, James Carpenter, Keith Smith, Tony Brooks James ($16.2M) Extensions - Grady Jarrett, Deion Jones ( $15.8M) Re-Structures - Jake Matthews, Dante Fowler ($14.0M) Free Agency - This will not be a year we can can go strong in free agency so here's a limited approach. We'll have to backload a couple contracts. Total 2021 cost of $13.7M which leaves $9.1M for the draft class and maybe a small emergency fund:
    Re-Signs - Younghoe Koo, Darqueze Dennard, LaRoy Reynolds Free Agents - Terrence Mitchell, Mike Davis, Jermaine Eluemunor, Richard Rogers, Michael Burton Draft - I only have a week's worth of YouTube research in so far so this will probably change after pro days, zooms and interviews. We have nine picks as of now. I think we should trade down but I don't mock trade downs because they are usually pipe dreams. Here's a first mock based on a PFN simulation:
    4    OT    Penei Sewell 35    DI    Alim McNeill 68    ED    Quincy Roche 108    FS    Andre Cisco 149    RB    Kylin Hill 181    SS    Paris Ford 183    OC    Trey Hill 189    TE    Quinton Morris 218    LB    K.J. Britt Projected Roster
    QB – Matt Ryan, Kurt Benkert WR – Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, Russell Gage, Olamide Zaccheaus, Greg Dortch, Chris Rowland RB – Mike Davis, Kylin Hill, Ito Smith, Qadree Ollison, Michael Burton TE – Hayden Hurst, Richard Rogers, Quinton Morris OT – Penei Sewell, Jake Matthews, Kaleb McGary, Willie Beavers OG – Chris Lindstrom, Jermaine Gluemunor, Willie Wright OC – Matt Hennessy, Trey Hill DT – Grady Jarrett, Alim McNeill, Tyeler Davison, Deadrin Senat, Chris Slayton DE – Dante Fowler Jr., Marlon Davidson, John Cominsky, Quincy Roche LB – Deion Jones, Foyesade Oluokun, Mykal Walker, LaRoy Reynolds, K.J.

    A-TowN.- reacted to Francis York Morgan in FYM 2021 Mock Draft (pre-FA)   
    ((Can't figure out how to change the font, ah well. Don't wanna have to go back bolding everything, so here goes))
    Real early in the process, so I’m sure things are gonna change a lot going forward…but I figure it’d be fun to try and predict what this team wants to do (or at least what I’d like them to do) before Free Agency kicks off. Not as crazy detailed this time since cap is up in the air, and I still haven’t watched some of the guys I’d like us to draft in as much depth as I want to, but yeah.
    Using Spotrac for our base salary cap (186.8 cap after rollover, about 23 mil over the cap right now), bolded means it’s this year’s cap hit/cap relief.
    Matt Ryan (frees up ~14.5 mil) – only restructure I want us to do. I love having Julio and Jake on the team, but a big restructure (while freeing up about 17.5 mil between the two) means both are MUCH more difficult to trade or move on from in the following years. Worst comes to worst, it makes a bit more sense to restructure Matthews, but I’d like for them to wait on Julio until we see how this season goes and how Ridley develops.
    Didn’t talk Debo or Jarrett because they better fit under…
    Grady Jarrett (two years left on contract, extend for another 3, can free up to 10 mil in space) – Jarrett needs to be the biggest building block on the DL, and arguably the biggest on defense period. Extending him with two years left on the contract (and giving him a bunch more guaranteed money) keeps Son of Tuggle happy and balling.
    Debo is one of my favorite Falcons, if not my favorite outright. That said, with Foye having the potential to get a new contract, I might wait on extending Debo to incentivize competition (besides, I doubt he wants an extension during COVID times after a down season since he’ll get less). He’s getting 12.5 mil this season anyways, hardly the reason we’re short on space.
    Ricardo Allen, James Carpenter, and Allen Bailey (frees up 14.8 mil total) – all straightforward cuts here. Guys getting either overpaid, underperforming, or a combination of the two.
    Trade Away
    Dante Fowler to Bears for 2021 5th round pick (frees up 9.2 mil) – Fowler is just a year removed from a double-digit sack campaign and the Bears need a guy opposite Mack. With guys like Mack and Hicks on the line, allowed to stand up in base and stunt in nickel packages, Fowler can thrive while not having to be “the guy.” And the Bears get Fowler for ~9-10 mil this year due to us taking on about half his cap hit. They can extend him pretty easily if he balls out.
    These moves leave the Falcons with about 25.5 mil in cap space. Keep in mind, the salary cap could be lower or higher next year, and if we went ham restructuring Julio and Jake, then extending Debo…we could have ANOTHER 23.5 mil in cap space. So keep that in mind before getting your panties in a wad over my suggested Free Agency and trade moves. If it doesn’t add up with the rookie class, pretend the first year cap hit is lower, someone else is restructured, whatever you like.
    Younghoe Koo (avg 4.5 mil/yr, first year 3 mil cap hit)
    (Vet min signings, all were either injured or won’t have much competition on the FA market)
    Darqueze Dennard
    Brandon Powell
    Matt Gono
    Jaeden Graham
    Jacob Tuoti-Mariner
    Sharrod Neasman
    Charles Harris
    Just being real with ya – I don’t see us keeping any of our “bigger” FAs leaving this season, aside from maybe Neal if he doesn’t generate interest, and I don’t see any of the guys I want us to keep outside of Koo getting more than a vet min contract. If you have an argument, have at it, but we got guys like Dennard for vet min last year and he got injured, guys like Tuoti-Mariner had no interest beforehand…just not all that worried.
    Trade For
    Harrison Smith, S – 2021 4th round, conditional 2022 5th round (extend after trade for 3 years, no guaranteed money left on his contract, can easily get 2021 number to ~5 mil) – Smith is on the last year of his contract and the writing is on the wall – 32 years old, Anthony Harris coming due for a contract? The Vikings are gonna opt for Harris. That said, I watched the Vikings plenty this year, and Smith is still the better safety. Dude was really good this last year and gives us a ton of positional versatility at our weakest spot (safety). Pull the trigger.
    I wanted to try and include a trade for JJ Watt too, but I get the feeling he’ll either 1) be traded to an immediate contender since that’s what he wants, or 2) refuse to take a pay cut with the trade and be released. But man, I’d love having a guy like him on this team.
    Marcus Williams, S: 5 years, 52 mil (6 mil) – Yeah, we all love the Minneapolis Miracle, but you know what I love more? Safeties that can actually ball. Smith and Williams would legitimately be the best tandem this team has had in its long and mostly miserable history. And versatility in both players too – let’s go all out making a weakness a strength, even if it’s a bit pricy.
    Chris Carson, RB: 3 years, 17 mil (4 mil) – Do you want Javonte Williams, but can’t fit him into your mock based on the other players you’re taking in the draft? Then you might want Chris Carson. It’s a little crazy how similar the two players are. Carson isn’t gonna be “cheap,” considering his relative age and smaller load of carries. That said, he’s dealt with some injuries and isn’t as dynamic as other backs. Fine by me. Dude almost never goes down at first contact and refuses to go out of bounds without a fight. As part of a multi-faceted rushing attack, he’s a threat that has to be constantly accounted for. Especially since he isn’t one of the bigger backs that can’t catch or block.
    Melvin Ingram, DE: 1 year, 8 mil (8 mil) – Ingram is going to be 32 coming off an injury, trying to make the most of what’s likely his last chance to earn another big contract in the NFL. Ingram is an all-around player still capable of giving you 7-12 sacks a season and leading the team in QB hits if healthy. Let him prove that and give the younger guys a vet to look up to.
    There are a bunch of other low and mid-tier guys I’d be into, but for now I’m trying to keep it reasonable. Fontenot has a penchant for turning low and mid-tier free agents into great contributors (and more), so I’m looking forward to what he’s got planned.
    1(4) – trading down with Denver so they can get their QB of DA FUTURE. We give up our 1st and a 5th comp, and in return, we get their 1st and 2nd this year and their 1st next year. Rolling into next year with two 1st round picks gives the new FO tons of flexibility after evaluating the roster. And after the trade, let’s get it started with actual picks…
    1(9): Patrick Surtain II, CB, Alabama

    Best CB in the draft, I’d honestly be fine with him at 4. The speed narrative is gonna be blown when he runs a 4.4 at the Combine (not like that’s the most important thing to begin with). In Pees defense, paired with Terrell on the other side and two stellar safeties in Smith and Williams, this secondary is gonna be nasty.
    2(36): Brevin Jordan, TE, Miami

    Stupid talented TE, and a better blocking-receiver combo than arguably any other TE in the draft. Having Hurst and Jordan in run formations makes this offense incredibly hard to prep for. Then consider that all of our RBs can catch (just wait till you see the guy we’re drafting) and we have Julio and/or Ridley on the outside…that’s the kind of thing that keeps defensive coordinators up at night.
    2(41): Ar’Darius Washington, S, Texas Christian University

    But FYM, we already allocated a ton of resources to safety! Suck it up buttercup. Don’t especially care if this is “too high” to pick Washington, he’s the best safety in the draft imho. His feel for the flow of the game is unmatched and he’s as juiced as a 5’8 guy could be. Vicious tackler in the open field, ballhawk, and has the versatility to get on the field right away, whether that’s as a nickel, a special teams gunner, a third safety – just get him out there. The goal of turning our biggest weakness on the team into a strength continues.
    3(68): Alim McNeill, DT, North Carolina State

    I was torn between taking an RB Rd 2 or 3 to pair with our 4th round guy and taking a big NT, but McNeill’s pass rushing ability won me over. Not quite as freaky as Dexter Lawrence coming out, but still a crazy mover for such a big dude up front. Especially given the lack of investment in the DL overall, this kind of move gives us more flexibility and ups the caliber of our short yardage defense while still offering some pass rush ability on other downs. McNeill is a hoss, and while I was torn between him and Shelvin, McNeill’s ceiling wound up winning out.
    4(109): Kenny Gainwell, RB, Memphis

    You can’t fake the lightning-in-a-bottle type playmaker. It’s just one of those things where when you see it…you know it. Gainwell is a threat all over the field. RB? Absolutely. WR? He runs the tree. Returner? Let’s have an actual competition for once. And the guy can gun and block, too. Carson as the “main” dude with Gainwell, Smith, and Ollison behind means that this team has a RB group capable of actually striking fear in opponents for once. Versatility all over the place.
    5(149) – Chris Rumph II, DE, Duke

    II - II: Electric Boogaloo. Rumph may very well not be at this spot when the draft comes around (ditto everyone else – it’s a tricky thing – but I’m going by where these guys tend to be ranked atm). But if he is, this move is a no brainer. Rumph is a smaller guy, but maybe the most refined pass rusher coming out. If you’re looking for the next Maxx Crosby cat to be taken late and blossom early, he’s likely it. Though the next guy is my other pick in that respect…
    5(165) – Elerson Smith, DE, Northern Iowa

    How the heck did this guy fly under the radar? I still have trouble finding his college games (didn’t play in 2020, some 2019 games on YT where he looked really good), but he’s picking up steam after a great Senior Bowl. Smith has crazy measurables (6’6 and 260+ with long arms), maintains surprisingly good leverage, and has great bend for a bigger guy. Can use refinement like a lot of smaller school dudes, but he’s not that far off if I’m being honest. Both he and Rumph can compete for pass rushing snaps early with potential for starting in a couple years, if not sooner.
    5(178) – Paulson Adebo, CB, Stanford

    I was willing to take this dude in the 2nd or 3rd last year but he’s completely fallen off the radar somehow. Adebo is a former WR with smarts to go with athleticism. Great hips and a really good man corner. Notice a theme? Drafting guys who have legit starter potential, smart guys who won’t be liabilities as depth.
    6(190) – Frank Darby, WR, Arizona State

    Started watching Darby because he played with my dude Jayden Daniels (who I would love for us to target in the 2022 draft). Darby is the kind of guy who can develop into a stellar 3rd WR like Gage has for us while offering contributions on STs immediately. He’s crazy talented when it comes to making adjustments for catches, he runs clean and crisp routes, and he’s a mean run blocker to boot. As close to a can’t-miss as you can get this late in the draft.
    6(218) – Ben Mason, FB, Michigan

    A favorite for some of the TATF crowd. A big mean fullback who can help in short yardage situations, whether he’s the one toting the rock or the one crushing linebackers in the hole. And he’s a mean ******* when it comes to special teams coverage too, ensuring we’re getting the most out of him when he’s active game-day. Decent hands as well…fullbacks are as good as it gets when it comes to late round value, and he’s gonna be a good one.
    Let’s take a look at where we’re at now.
    On defense, this team suddenly has one of the better starting secondaries in the league, with Surtain and Terrell at CB while the more experienced Smith and Williams man the safety spots. Pairing that with our talented LBs and a retooled DL with intelligent and versatile players means that this defense can be at least solid and arguably very good. Washington and McNeill offer great developmental depth and situational talent, with other potential homeruns that can contribute on STs immediately from Day 3.
    On offense, we have one of the scariest packages on run downs of any team. Think of a 2 TE heavy I, one WR in Julio, Mason at FB, Carson in the backfield. You have to stack the box against that kind of look, but you have to double Julio (because why wouldn’t you?), and if it’s play action, there are four guys who can make you pay. Swap Carson with Gainwell and it’s even scarier. This is the kind of offense where misdirection and motion can thrive, and that kind of stuff wears down a defense from running sideline to sideline…and then Carson closes it out.
    Thoughts? Wanna tell me how much you hate all that investment at safety and secondary instead of the DL? Or why I didn’t take Harris/Williams/Etienne early? (Fwiw I'd love to) Go for it. The QB crowd is gonna be miserable though.

I use those statistics to create parameters for testing & production, and see if current draftable players fall within those parameters. If they don’t, they get a red flag. This year is different though because of shortened seasons & no combine.

    A-TowN.- reacted to FalconFanSince1970 in My Favorite Free Agent RB   
    My favorite 2021 free agent running back is UFA Mike Davis. I think we need to add him to the roster.
    Yeah he's a journeyman that played for CAR, CHI, SEA and SF, but buddy could be just what we need.
    Could probably pick him up at a vet minimum, or maybe $3M at most. Add a RB draft pick to placate TATF.
    Short, heavy and slow, but a true as beater. Trust me. Great eyes on the run and a dam good receiver.
    Go look at him bullying our defense last year. Plays with attitude. Atlanta boy. Bring him on home Fonty.

    A-TowN.- got a reaction from Francis York Morgan in NFL Draft Prospect Rankings 2021   
    I don’t think this DT class has that top end talent in my opinion. It has decent depth, but the top end talent isn’t really there for me. I really like McNeill & Nixon’s 2020 tape, and Barmore had some great stretches. Twyman, Tufele, Shelvin, & Onwuzurike had really solid 2019 seasons as well. That entire top 6 is really close for me so I may move some around. 
    I’m with you, I don’t see the Donald comp at all either. He’s more like an Ed Oliver without the freaky athletics. I get the hesitation on him as well, but I think the combine and playing in 2020 would’ve increased his value. He is still raw & developing, but I like the tools he has and I’m banking on his upside.
    Pros: Insane quickness. Great lateral agility. Strong first step. Great leg drive. Underrated bullrush. Fantastic rip & swim move. Very good hand speed. Splash player with major upside & tools to work with. Solid effort.
    Cons: A bit smaller for the position. Strictly a gap shooter right now. Gets washed in the run at times. Abandons gaps for big play potential. Needs to develop hand strength and usage. Needs to get stronger as a whole since he doesn’t have an anchor right now.
