  1. I think this is his last season whether he makes or he breaks it. There are certain areas we have to be conscious of money, value, what can we replace him with etc. If a Drew Davis could unseat him we could save money. If HD has a make it type year, which is the best scenario, we can trade him for a pick, or just not have to resign him to more money and use that for FA defensive player, and still easily replace him with a good 2-4th round type pick. There have been a ton of great 3rd wr's, slot guys drafted in the middle rounds. No reason we can not do that. Best scenario for me is for HD to have an unreal year, a ton of catches, a lot of them in big moments, and use HD in a trade for a higher draft pick than what he is probably worth, benefiting from having RWhite and JJones on the same team, as well as TG. Just think if we had drafted Justin Hunter or Robert Woods, think how well one of those guy's could benefit from RW or JJ and all we have to give is a late 1st, early 2nd contract for 4 years. I would take either one of those talents over HD right now just because of potential and their size, speed, etc matching up agains nickel backs and safeties.
  2. The Falcons did exactly what I said they would do, I was off on my predictions and knew I would be if they chose this route. They went a lot of high risk high reward picks, guys from small schools, or guy's that did not play a lot, guys that Grade very well but nobody knows a lot about throughout the draft. If you believe in your guys and your scouts, coaches, they will either be geniuses or idiots after this draft. This topic made me think of that. The Alford pick, Stanford TE, the whole draft minus Trufant(who did not play in the best division of college football as well) is guy's we probably could have got later rounds than we picked, but we had them graded higher than where we picked them. Will be interesting to see how this class of players turns out. I am on the optimistic side it will be very, very, very good. Although there were some players on the boards I knew about I wish we would have picked.
  3. Here is thing I wonder, I have not watched Trufant, but maybe he has better ball skills(interceptions) than most think, BUT, he is not feast or famine type guy always jumping routes etc, maybe the guy plays it like I wish a lot more of them did and #1 makes sure the wr does not get it, #2 pick it if you happen to pick it.
  4. I like the picks and to add to that, Trufant/Alford coming in under the tutelage of ASamuel and his mentality will go a long ways with their abilities. If these two youngsters have the same mind set as ASamuel, every ball thrown their way is a pick six, I think it is huge. It is a lot better than them coming in and not having that type guy to watch practice, to listen to the confindence, the friendly trash talk, the things that are said and the way a true CB is suppose to act when on the field to succeed, I would feel a lot worse not having an ASamuel on the team and the two youngster thinking they have to be the MAN not knowing what being the MAN looks like, sounds like, practices like, etc. A great situation for those two to come in and see it, then do it. I wish like Crazy we got CWashington and Geathers from the Dawgs just knowing their potential. They did not do a whole lot in college, but from being a dawg fan I know they have the potential and it is two more DL that could have competed for a spot, and I think they have more potential than some of our other draft picks. It just does not make sense to me the history of the Falcons not drafting Dawgs at the least when they can get some of them later in the draft and give them a chance. For nothing else if they start developing that type of practice, I think it would at the least boost ticket sales and if that has anything to do with salary cap, it will boost that. A LOT of Dawgs have better pro careers than college. I actually think the mis conception is people think that is a lack of coaching, but imo opinion that could be attibuted to good coaching, because from my view, we are getting the kids prepared better for the NFL if they can go there and succeed. Could have drafted Rambo, Commings, Washington, AJones, all good value where they were drafted, AJones not being drafted at all still would have been good value as the last 7th round comp pick. We drafted safety, cb, dl, and I think all of these succeed. Geathers is the ?, but you don't teach his size and quickness, so signing him as FA would have been smart especially if we are going to a 3/4 at some point. Just don't make sense to me.
  5. Only one in there will not last where you have him for sure is Sean Porter. His stock is rising, he can play inside or outside, 3/4, or 4/3 scheme, very fast athletic, good size, shined at the combine and the senior bowl game, a lot of teams interviewing. He is one of my favorite, have been following him and Sio Moore, two I think we can get in 2nd, 3rd, maybe early 4 on Porter that are sleepers, under recognized careers but looking back great careers, shining, and great size, speed, athleticism, strength, going to be great Pro's, have both of them in my last mock After going through the mocks, the scout reports, projections of the players, what other teams needs are, etc, I finally come up with a scenario I love myself. Although it could easily get shot down by some of you guys, here it is Trade out of 1st pick with Ariz Card who need a QB and will probably be fighting to move up and draft their QB. Get their 2nd and their 3rd. I think the value is there and it is very reasonable and a very good possibility and we might get more than that. 2nd - 7th, 30th 3rd - 7th, 30th 4th - 30th, comp 5th - 30th 6th - 30th 7th - 30th, comp, comp 11 picks If lucky enough this is the end result, what you think JBanks - Cb - miss st JJenkins - nt - uga - prob want last here - Brandon Williams/Jessie Williams SMoore - olb - uconn - this is where we get future star imo SPorter - Ilb/olb - tex a&m - this is where we get future star imo DTaylor - DE/OLB - usce - same SCommings - cb - uga - same ASanders - wr/sp teams freak - usce RFragel - ot - ohi st - sleeper, late bloomer - another future star imo Lutzenkirchen - te - aub - same AJones - DE/DT - UGA - played all interior pos across line at uga, unfortunately bad breaks on injuries last couple of seasons, could be ala VWalker Uzzie - played terrible ga tech team, fits us, potential steal in the draft here on last comp pick if still available, if not I go with BSmith - CB - UGA who if does not work out at CB, sign to practice sqaud and see how he does on Off, was electrifying at times with the ball in his hands, 4.3 speed. The Only player on my list not versatile is Uzzi, he is a guard all the way, maybe could be a center. But the value for everyone of them for the round we can get them in this draft is high imo. Almost every player on there can play multiple positions, schemes, situations and if we are swapping schemes, that is what we may need. A lot of potential stars here. Think about some of our best players on the team not drafted first round, William Moore, Thomas DeCoud, Blalock, CLofton, Babi, VWalker we lost, a few more, we could have a great draft this year.

Either played on terrible teams, under utitlized, injuries slowed them, or developed late and changed positions, or played with future #1 picks opposite them(DTaylor), this would be one heck of a draft if we did anything close, ofcourse that is my opinion and why I think that. More than likely, probably have to go with some of the ones above in my screwed up break down trying to do while working, but the jist, we can get most of that list, make most of that work, unless ACard don't think they need to move up to get their QB. If they want GSmith and he falls, they trade, if they settle for a MBarkley, they don't. Then it ends up a whole ball game and trying to find another team in the same mold as Az.
  7. I know it was long, but you did not read into it, IF, we can not get over that hump this season and we lose a lot of key players and have a ton of wholes to fill again, I would rather take some younger star players in their PRIME and get two and three players for one to build through the draft the way you should build your team anyways. Maybe it does not have to be MRyan, we would get the most out of him, but take two or three great players before a draft projected to be very top heavy in the first three rounds and turn it into 6, 7, 8 players on each level of play, offensively and defensively and build a great team. I would love to see the Falcons have the guts to do it. Will it happen, no, but I guarantee you if you believe in building through the draft, your scouts, you should be able to build a team that should have no problem getting over that hump. The reason teams never do this is because players like MRyan, RWhite, are the face of the team. They sell numerous tickets and jerseys, etc. It is a high risk to an extent, but, last year for instance, trade Ryan, end up with Andrew Luck, 2nd round could get say Cordy Glenn, 5th round say Chris Rainey, and then we have a #24 and #30 first round pick, Just off trading MRyan, you would not do that, Then take RWhite and say we got a late 1st and a 3rd last year and I go back and look, we could also add CFleener TE drafted in the 2nd actually, and I add Brandon Boykin, drafted late in fourth and doin quite well for Eagles, you saying you would not trade MRyan/RWhite for ALuck, CGlenn, CRainey, CFleener, BBoykin, and another first round to go with ours this season, I could draft say OGletree and Coradelle Patterson, You would not do that. ALuck instantly turned the Colts around. CGlenn is a future pro bowler, started as a rookie, and could go back through the draft and name several great potential picks and this team would be absolutely SET after this draft for the next few years. You would not do that? Or forget the injury, I add RGriffin111, and some of the others, you wouldn't do that? One day, a franchise will have the guts to do this, and it will build an unreal team.
  8. Just wondering, if we come close again, end up losing a lot of veterans and having wholes across the board, say Samuel, Gonzalez, Umenyori, a couple others, what are we going to do if we have another draft with to many wholes to fill. Do you wait and see what we do in free agency, or just unload for a lot of future picks and build back up through the draft the next 3 or 4 years. I have always believed the best way to build a team is through the draft. As much as it hurts, when you get to a point you are just not going to get over that hump, use what you have to get multiple picks. 2 for one type deals, etc. Would you take the chance of tading, say Matt Ryan, RWhite, the players in their prime to get future 1st and second round picks to go with our 1st and second round picks already. Most bad teams don't have a qb, say next year I trade MRyan to said team for their 1st, 2nd, and 4th, 7th and future 1st, two years running will have 4 first round picks total, out of those I can find a QB, and build an OLine, Get what you can for RWhite, a team that needs a go to guy, sure fire to go with their QB for their 1st and 3rd maybe, if that is the value, I have added 2 first rounders next draft, 1 - 2nd rounders, 2 3rd rounders with just two stars unloading off a team that is not going to get over that hump. I can build one heck of a team if I had the B&*^S to do something along this lines. Replace RWhite and MRyan with 3 - 1st , 2 - 2nd, and 3 - 3rd, keep the younger stars like Spoon, JJones, unload the vets, draft, and fill in with the vet FA's left over after the next draft, keeping in mind I have two 1st rounders and 2 - fourth rounders the following draft to account for. I think this is the way you truly build a Super Bowl team. I looked at San Fran, after making a super bowl, they have 1st rounder, 2 - 2nds, and 2 3rds without looking further, how in the world did they end up with a super bowl team and a boat load of early picks the following draft. Amazing how these teams are able to do things like this. Truly, truly smart people running some of those teams. Trade Ryan, White, give me Clowney DE usce, Kouandjio OT from Alabama, SWatkins - WR Clemson, I have my WR, and added Clowney and Kouandjio, need a QB, But I would just let DDavis play a season and if he does not bode well have two picks the next season to get the one I want. Johnny Manziel QB, TGurley RB. There we go. All my seconds, thirds go to interior OL, TE, LB, depth. Super bowl winners from 2016 - 2018. When you add our early picks this season, to something like this I think we could do for the next two draft seasons, I do not see how you could not build a dynasty. Is it possible to do something along these lines, is money to much an issue. Why do teams not do things like this.??? I think only the attatchment of the fanbase to these star players that are the face of the franchise is the only reason. But for everyone we lose, we can replace, I just want superbowls.
  9. Agree, and the type wr we need is 3rd wr possesion type wr or ones versatile enough to play special teams, we can get good ones in the 4th through 7th, Ace Sanders is who I want around 6th round, fits perfectly.
  10. I think the players to consider this year with all the wholes on D and needing a TE and OL on top of that is all the high risk players, snatch them up at high value and take a chance. CLemonier, DMoore, Montgomery, Lattimore, Mathieu as well a couple more inury guys not as bad like Carradine,
  11. Was thinking the same thing when reading and even both of them possibly falls to the early to mid second.
  12. I would rather draft D at #30, keep Konz at RG, and draft Barret Jones at C/G in the 2nd or 3rd round, to many defensive wholes
  13. Without a doubt. I would set up this draft to get primarily younger on D leaving an opening for the blockbuster trade next year. We are set for years at each level of the D besides one difference maker on the Dline imo. Moore and DeCoud at safety, Spoon at LB, Samuel CB, hope McClain keeps progressing - I really like him, Peters and Babi at DT, that is a good core group. Get us another good CB, LB, DL in this draft or through FA sprinkled with veterans like Osi, and next season we can afford to make a blockbuster trade to get Clowney. I would not mind trading a few picks and a couple players this year to get three or four picks from the end of the first to the beginning of the 3rd. Use comp picks for everything around what we get from 1st through 3rd. After this draft, we have traded and made moves with some of the personel and the picks for this year, we end up with mid 1st round pick, early 2nd, late 2nd, and early third, then the comp picks. Traded/Moved up with 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and a couple players out of Snelling, HDouglas, etc. Draft - Ogletree at LB, Trufant at CB with mid 1st early 2nd, late second and early 3rd we end up with John Jenkins and Margus Hunt 4th round comp pick - Marcus Lattimore 3 7th Round Comps - TMathieu CB, Marlon Brown WR, Michael Gilliard LB 2014 block buster trade with future picks and a couple that draft end up with Clowney 2014 Defense, CB - Samuel, McClain, TruFant, Mathieu, S's - Moore, DeCoud, LB's - Spoon, Tree, one more from developing or FA, Babi, Peters, JJenkins, MHunt, Clowney, Bierman, Robertson, Osi
  14. Well, you know what I meant LOL, I would give anything to have Warmack, aint gone happen I know, but, there are years OG's fall around the end of 1st rounds, especially when the Draft has 3 or four QB's , loaded with CB's, OT's, DT's, DE's, it is funny when they make those runs, teams that have those needs panic and pass up pro bowl OC, TE's, etc. I got you though, think we on same page, I just hope I can come back one day and say I told you so on MHunt. I think he is going to be good. I like those foreigner types like that, seem to have the work ethic, hungry to make a name and represent where they are from, etc. Playing at a small school doesn't help develop them as much either and you see a lot of those guys come out and get on the right team, the perfect fit with the perfect coaches and make a ton of other GM's sick to their stomach for passing on them. I hope that is what we are able to do. RWhite and where he is from is a perfect example. Our GM likes those chances and sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. A lot of people were thinking WTF when we drafted RWhite from a small school, but we see how that worked out. We will see.
  15. I will take your word he is falling, I did not know that and just have not seen it, but I have backed off a little on keeping up with mocks, waiting til pro days and FA is about over. 1st to mid april I will be back on that pretty hard. If that is the case I hope like crazy he does fall to us and yes I would take him over Hunt.
