  1. Of the above linemen, only McGlinchey and Ragnow have had an official visit or private workout with the Falcons. It's been my observation that Atlanta generally drafts players whom they are most interested enough in to have a private workout/visit with them. I doubt Atlanta drafts an OT in the first round, and being the highest rated OT in this year's draft, McGlinchey will probably even be gone before Atlanta picks. The only other viable Offensive Lineman that Atlanta has shown real interest in drafting within the first three rounds is Ragnow. However, Atlanta has had private workouts or official visits from several late-round Offensive Linemen: OT Corey Cunningham, OT Rick Leonard, OG Tony Adams, OG Anthony Coyle, OG Matthew Gono, OG Corey Helms, and OC Tejen Koroma. If Atlanta drafts an Offensive Lineman this year, I think it will most likely be from this group of players in either the 6th or 7th round.
  2. Whoops didn't see it until after I posted. Hopefully, a mod will delete this duplicate thread or merge it with the first thread.

  4. Falcons have a gaping hole at defensive tackle atlanta-falcons By D. Orlando Ledbetter - The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Posted: 7:00 a.m. Friday, April 20, 2018 FLOWERY BRANCH — First of a five-part series on the Falcons’ draft needs. Today: Defensive tackles. The Falcons’ board is set for the draft, which runs Thursday through Saturday in Arlington, Texas. The question is not if the Falcon will select a defensive tackle, it’s when they will do so. The Falcons have a gaping hole at defensive tackle with the departure of starter Dontari Poe. He signed with the Panthers in free agency. The top two defensive tackles in the draft, Washington’s Vita Vea and Alabama’s Da’Ron Payne, will not be available when the Falcons select with the 26th overall pick. The Falcons interviewed Vea at the scouting combine and had Payne in for a private visit. The Falcons have traded up in the first round in four of 10 drafts run by general manager Thomas Dimitroff since he joined the team in 2008. He’s traded up in the first round for left tackle Sam Baker, wide receiver Julio Jones, cornerback Desmond Trufant and defensive end Takkarist McKinley. If the Falcons want Vea or Payne, they’ll have to continue that trend. The third-rated defensive tackle, Florida’s Taven Bryan, likely will be available to the Falcons if they don’t move up. However, Dimitroff and coach Dan Quinn could elect to add an offensive weapon in the first round and pick a defensive tackle later in the draft. In addition to the 26th overall pick, the Falcons hold picks 58 (second round), 90th (third round), 126th (fourth round), 200 (sixth) and 244 (seventh). Atlanta was awarded the final pick in the draft (No. 256) -- referred to as Mr. Irrelevant -- as a compensatory pick for losing five players in free agency in 2017. “I think when we talk about the Florida player, Bryan, he’s a guy from Casper, Wyoming,” said Gil Brandt, a analyst for Sirius XM NFL Radio and former personnel man. “They have short seasons. I don’t know if they have spring football and so forth. But I think he’s got a lot of upside and he’s only a three-year player at Florida. He has the size, at 6-(foot)-5 and almost 300 pounds. He’s got nice long arms. I don’t know what else you need.” Bryan, 22, ran the 40-yard dash in 4.98 seconds. He grew helping his father, Brandy, a former Navy SEAL, with the family construction business. At Florida, he redshirted in 2014 before playing three seasons and entering the draft after his redshirt junior season. He earned the nickname “Wyoming Wildman” while amassing 10.5 tackles for losses and 5.5 sacks over his career. “Bryan, as he develops, could play both inside and outside,” ESPN NFL Matchup analyst Greg Cosell said. “He has some individual plays, that quite honestly, make you think of J.J. Watt. He’s not quite there obviously on a down-to-down basis. But it’s probably fascinating to see where someone like Taven Bryan goes.” Like Brandt, Cosell believes Bryan will continue to improve. “He’s a kid who’s best football will be ahead of him,” Cosell said. “I know he’s a son of a Navy SEAL so I would imagine he’s grown up with some discipline. To me, he’s a real wild card in this draft because he can develop into a really good pro player.” The Falcons were in Gainesville, Florida on Wednesday to work out Bryan and other Gators players. “Defensive tackles who have some up-the-field ability, who can also play some three downs, I know that’s asking a lot, but that’s why we are talking about people like De’Ron Payne who can do that,” ESPN NFL front office insider Louis Riddick said. “Taven Bryan can do that. He has some of the best ‘get off’ that you will see in this draft from a defensive lineman. He’s in the back field so quick. ... He has to get better finishing plays so that he has more stats to get people excited.” The Falcons have scouted defensive tackles that could be available in the second and third rounds. The Falcons’ top personnel men and coaches went to Hays, Kansas to hold a private workout for Fort Hays State defensive tackle Nathan Shepherd. “I think that’s what they are looking for primarily is a defensive tackle or a defensive lineman,” Brandt said. Shepherd, 24, is 6-foot-3 inches and 307 pounds. He’s a late-bloomer and former walk-on from Ontario, Canada. He played one season in Canada and was out of football for two seasons before paying his way to Hays and walking on to the football team. “Overall, Shepherd is an up-the-field player who will face an adjustment period as a NFL rookie (not ideal for an older player), but his exciting traits suggest he will bloom into a starter as a rookie or early in year two,” according to Dane Brugler’s 2018 NFL draft guide. The Falcons also held a private workout with Sam Houston State defensive tackle P.J. Hall and had him in for a visit. Dimtroff, Quinn, assistant general manager Scott Pioli, defensive line coach Bryant Young and director of college scouting Steve Sabo were on hand for the workout. Hall is 6-foot-1 inch and 308 pounds. He was not invited to the NFL scouting combine. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.76 seconds at the school’s Pro Day. He covered the first 10 yards in 1.66 seconds. Hall has that explosive athleticism that the Falcons covet and incredible strength. He has a 38-inch vertical jump and benched pressed 225 pounds 36 times. “I think as you get into the depths of the draft, you look at maybe Harrison Phillips from Stanford,” said Phil Savage, director of the Senior Bowl and a former NFL coach, scout and general manager. “B.J. Hill (from N.C. State) and a guy that I like is Justin Jones from N.C. State (and South Cobb High). I think he has elevated his draft stock. He’s going to go in that second- to fourth-round area. Those are a couple of names to keep an eye on as far as non-first round defensive tackles.” Defensive line guru Chuck Smith believes that Duke nose tackle/defensive tackle Mike Ramsay is underrated. Ramsay is from Smyrna and played at The Walker School for coach John East. He lettered four seasons and played in 50 games, with 25 consecutive starts to close out his career at Duke. “This kid one day is going to be a starter in the National Football League,” Smith said. Some have compared Ramsay, because of his build, with Falcons defensive tackle Grady Jarrett, who also was underrated coming out of Clemson and lasted until the fifth round before the Falcons traded up to get him. A quick look at the defensive tackles: List of first-day picks (first round): Vita Vea (Washington), Da’Ron Payne (Alabama), Maurice Hurst (Michigan), Taven Bryan (Florida) Second day (second-third rounds): Harrison Phillips (Stanfor), Nathan Shepherd, (Fort Hays State), Rasheem Green (USC), Da’Shawn Hand (Alabama), B.J. Hill (N.C. State) Third day (fourth-seventh rounds): Trenton Thompson (Georgia), John Atkins (Georgia), P.J. Hall (Sam Houston State), Justin Jones (N.C. State) Georgia: Atkins and Trent SEC: Payne, Bryan, Hand, Atkins, Thompson, Mike Ramsay (Kentucky), Breeland Speaks (Mississippi), Khalil McKenzie (Tennessee) ACC: Hill, Jones, Derrick Nnadi (Florida State), R.J. McIntosh (Miami), Tim Settle, (Virginia Tech), Andrew Brown (Virginia), Kendrick Norton (Miami) https://www.myajc.com/sports/football/falcons-have-gaping-hole-defensive-tackle/BrjysruloemaQz8HRM2zHK/

  6. Some of my general expectations for the upcoming draft. The Falcons will draft: (1) a DT within the first 3 rounds, and probably one more after Round 3. (2) a Returner, who might also double as the #3WR, #3RB, or #3/4CB. (3) another LB somewhere in the draft, possibly even in Round 1. (4) a late-round FB, and most likely another RB. (5) a #3 WR, probably somewhere in the mid-rounds. (6) an Offensive Lineman in a late round.
  7. From an article posted by g-dawg this morning: RB/WR Nyheim Hines: ultra fast - ran 4.38/40 at combine good personality was asked by GMF crew to speak to camera as if it was a GM on "Why should we draft you?" - He nailed it,, talked about how he can return punts/kicks, play running back, play wide receiver, be an all around threat and posed the question back to the GM "Why would you draft/sign/hire 3 guys to do these jobs in a salary cap era when you can get just one?" -- GMF crew were stunned at how great his answer was -- Hines said he majored in business and had a little laugh/smile going.
  8. I really like Hines. Have him in my one and only mock draft thus far.
  9. Could be. Falcons are definitely taking a close look at possible CBs in varying projected rounds of the draft. CB DJ Reed, who is also a Returner, would be a good alternative to Hines in the 3rd-round. The mock would then be BJ, DJ, and PJ all in consecutive rounds, two through four.
  10. A little different mock draft from the ones I've been seeing. All of these players have had private workouts or official visits with the Falcons. 1. Rashaan Evans LB (DQ loves him some LBs with speed and coverage ability. Evans would give Falcons one of the best LB corp in football) 2. B.J. Hill DT (Got to replace Poe) 3. Nyheim Hines RB/Slot Receiver/Returner (track star with 4.38 speed, versatile as change-of-pace RB or speedy slot receiver, Falcons desperately need a a Returner) 4. P.J. Hall DT (Grady clone, penetrator and disrupter) 6. Kurt Benkert QB (need a better, lower-priced back-up QB than Matt Schaub, who is counting $4.5 million against the 2018 salary-cap. Draft Benkert and cut Schaub) 7a. Nick Bawden FB (no FB currently on the roster) 7b. Vyncint Smith WR (4.36 speed with 39.5 vertical. Reads like a cross between Taylor Gabriel and Aldrick Robinson )
  11. or Sam Houston State for a good potential 4th-round pick:: Falcons' Front Office Scout Potential Late Round Steal By FalconsATP16 on Apr 15, 2018, Sam Houston State (SHS) is a small school, arguably smaller than my alma mater (UTSA). So it's no surprise that much like UTSA they're players don't typically garner much attention. And when they do, i.e. Marcus Davenport, it's due to phenomenal athleticism. SHS has an athletic freak of their own, one whose stayed under the radar. That player is DT P.J. Hall, a player whose likened by Lance Zerlien to our very own Grady Jarrett. His overview of Hall: "What Hall lacks in height, weight and length, he makes up for with power, quickness, and explosiveness. Hall has the quickness and strength to be disruptive against the run and pass as a shade nose or reduced front three-technique. His level of production in every category imaginable could foreshadow his ability to translate into the NFL, but he will have to prove he can maintain his weight and stand up to the rigors of the interior with bigger men across from him." Comparisons and scouting aside, Hall has the athletic traits to make him a potential steal at almost any round. At his pro day, Hall; 6-0' 1/2", 308 lbs, ran 40 in 4.83/4.71 seconds, had 38 vert, 9-8 broad jump, and 36 bp. Those numbers actually rival the more athletic version of Grady Jarrett, Aaron Donald. This athleticism allowed for him to play both outside and inside while amassing outlandish stats. I'll pass on a good write up instead of doing too much free work; https://www.bloggingtheboys.com/2018/3/31/17183020/nfl-draft-prospect-to-know-pj-hall-dt-sam-houston-state-dallas-cowboys Today after a simple Google search for the Falcons, I came across a tweet from the school's Twitter account. It reads, "Thank you to @FalconsDQ , GM- Thomas Dimitroff and the @AtlantaFalcons organization for spending today on campus. First Class People! #EatEmUpKats #KatstotheNFL" And the attached picture appears to show Hall (#92 on his shorts, and dreads) being worked out by TD and Quinn. Hopefully we can have him in Atlanta, if they believes him to malleable, hopefully playing good football. I'll also post a screen shot in the fanshots area. On a side note: Guys like Hall, Hill, Green, Settle, et al in this deep DT draft are the reason I'd be ok with taking a prolific #2 receiving threat early. It'd be great to go back to days of Roddy (1B) and Julio (1A), but a 1st round rookie could make for an amazing pairing as well. It's tough seeing Julio tweak something just to have the remaining WRs create little to no consistent separation. https://www.thefalcoholic.com/2018/4/15/17241558/falcons-front-office-scout-potential-late-round-steal
  12. In the 2016 draft, I don't think people were that surprised with Atlanta drafting Neal and Debo. Atlanta had private work-outs with both players, and it was no secret heading into the draft that they liked both of these players very much. Therefore, many on this board, including myself, had both players in our Falcons mock drafts. What was unexpected in 2016 were the rounds that they were selected. Most had Neal as a second-round selection, and most had Debo as a third-round selection. However, Atlanta drafted them first-round and second-round respectively. I think that if Atlanta sees a player that they really want, and view him as a very good scheme fit, then they might draft him in an earlier round than the draft pundits are indicating.

  14. Are you prepared for the Falcons to defy your draft expectations? ‘Cuz that’s probably what’s going to happen. By Cory Woodroof@CoryWoodroof47 Apr 15, 2018, 12:00pm Hello there, wonderful Falcoholic reader. I hope you’re sitting down. I’ve got something to tell you. The Atlanta Falcons are going to do things in the upcoming draft that you aren’t expecting, won’t like and won’t likely understand until later on down the road when you realize that they’ve been pretty good at this with Dan Quinn in tow. For the purposes of this column, remember Luke Skywalker’s now-famous line in Star Wars: The Last Jedi: “This is not going to go the way you think.” The Falcons’ draft is not going to go the way you think, because it never really does, does it? We need to all get on the same page here with expectations, because, quite frankly, Atlanta never really tends to meet those confangled expectations we place on things we care about. 2016 is the banner year for that, because trust me, if it weren’t for Alex Mack, that team didn’t do one diddily thing any of us wanted them to do. I’ll never forget the feeling I had when the Falcons took S Keanu Neal. I was...indifferent. It wasn’t exciting; it wasn’t attractive; it wasn’t...expected. I sat on my friend’s couch and just kind of shrugged. I mean, I’d heard he was a good player, and I was happy to have him into the fold. But...I just couldn’t help but be...a bit disappointed. Part of the reason for that disappointment came with the vision I had in my head of how that Falcons draft was going to go. Shaq Lawson. It had to be Shaq Lawson. Lawson was my draft dream, my knight in shining armor, my goo-goo eyes of a first round pick. I had to see that happen. I’ll never forget the little butterfly that fluttered around in my stomach as he fell down the draft board to Atlanta’s spot. And, then, the Falcons were on the clock... So, I waited, and waited, celebrating the idea of Lawson potentially in a Falcons uniform. And, hey, would you look at that! Myles Jack, the prolific UCLA linebacker, was falling, too! Atlanta needed a linebacker! That would have been perfect! Darron Lee’s there! He’s good, too! Maybe even Kevin Dodd! I could live with that! All these players. And then...Keanu Neal. Now, look, hindsight is 20/20, and today, Neal is the guy you’re jumping up and down to see come to Atlanta, and then you put up the streamers and blow up the balloons. In April 2016? He just wasn’t the guy any of Falcondom wanted. It didn’t mean it was a bad pick (lawlz, it was a great pick in a historic Falcons class), but again, nobody knew that *then.* If you did, congratulations and salutations. You were the better man than I at that point. But, I guess I fell down the rabbit hole of fan expectations. I’d only been writing about the team for a couple of months at that point over at Rise Up Reader, so I was just beginning to learn how to look at something I love with a critical eye. Two years later, I like to think I’m a lot better at that (yeah, yeah), but if I’ve learned anything, it’s that, sometimes, the pros know better. Now, in 2012, I do feel like some of our draft experts like Charles McDonald, Kevin Knight and Eric Robinson could’ve put their heads together and plotted out a much-better draft than what the Atlanta front office put together. That was a catastrophe. But, more often than not, the guys in the front office get paid the big bucks for a reason. They just know more than any of us do. Say what you will about Thomas Dimitroff, but he did build the roster that got the team out of 2007. That took some serious brainpower. So, when something doesn’t exactly go the way you hope here in about two weeks, please just give the team the benefit of the doubt. There will be great panic and hysteria if the team does not take a defensive tackle first, and the more I think about it, the more I begin to think how realistic a scenario that is. The last time the Falcons spent a first rounder on the guy they wanted, and not the position they needed to fill, it was, yup, 2016. They got the guy they wanted (Neal) and filled the position they needed to fill (LB) with ... Deion Jones and De’Vondre Campbell, their second and fourth rounders. Now, that’s rare to find that much talent, and you’re not going to have that every year. But, remember, nobody was all that excited for that when it happened. It took the 2016 season to get us all on board. Remember that when the Falcons potentially spend their first pick on a linebacker, cornerback or wide receiver. If they’re going to invest a pick into a guy they love, that probably means that guy is going to turn into a really great player, and that they’ve got eyes for someone later in the draft. If they do take a defensive tackle, and it’s like 2015 when fan expectations met front office interest for the Vic Beasley pick, then great. But, please, please, please, please, please check your ego and your expectations at the door and let the Falcons do their job. They’ve done it well as of late. That’s not likely to change anytime soon. Your expectations are probably going to be defied, and that’s probably for the best. This is not going to go the way you think. The real question is...are you ready for that this time around? https://www.thefalcoholic.com/2018/4/15/17223138/are-you-prepared-for-the-atlanta-falcons-to-defy-your-draft-expectations ore From The
  15. From a topic thread of mine last year: Posted April 29, 2017 · Well with the Falcons 2017 draft now concluded: they worked-out or had official visits from at least 5 of their 6 draft selections: DE/LB Tak McKinley, LB Duke Riley, OG Sean Harlow, RB Brian Hill, and TE Eric Saubert. The only 2017 draft pick that doesn't have a confirmed workout or visit with the Falcons at this juncture is CB Damontae Kazee. He still may have worked-out for the Falcons, we just might not know about it yet. On ‎4‎/‎18‎/‎2017 at 11:38 AM, theProf said: The following list of players that the Falcons have worked-out or had in for official visits was compiled from a pinned topic thread in the NFL Draft and Free Agency message board by poster Unintentional Grounding, with substantial input from posters FentayeJones and hjerry. Last year (2016) all the Falcons draft choices came from players that the Falcons either worked-out or had in for visits. Most all of Atlanta's draft selections in recent years have also been from players worked-out or had for official visits. The following list does NOT include players that the Falcons have only interviewed, scouted at the Combine or Senior Bowl, attended pro days without individually working-out, or had in for the Falcons “local players workout”. At this point, it appears from the following list that the Falcons are really targeting the OG and OT positions on Offense and the DE and LB positions on Defense. Positions that the Falcons do NOT appear to be targeting are the WR, QB, and C positions on Offense, and the DT and CB positions on Defense. There is still about two weeks to go before the draft, so I hopefully we can keep this topic thread updated with additional workouts/visits as they occur.
