  1. yes but is he the best choice we could have gotten? we always seem to barely miss the better choices like kinlaw, delpit etc
  2. a bit discouraging he wasn't in g-dawg's top twenty for second day Justin Madubuike, DT - Texas A&M A.J. Epenesa, DE - Iowa Zach Baun, LB/EDGE - Wisconsin Nevin Gallimore, DT - Oklahoma Ezra Cleveland, OT - Boise State J.K. Dobbins, RB - Ohio State Jeremy Chinn, S - Southern Illinois Jordan Elliott, DT - Missouri Lloyd Cushenberry, C/OG - LSU Ashtyn Davis, S - Cal Matt Hennessy, C - Temple Davon Hamilton, DT - Ohio State Curtis Weaver, EDGE - Boise State Willie Gay, OLB - Miss. State Julian Okwara, EDGE - Notre Dame Joshua Uche, EDGE - Michigan Akeem Davis-Gaither, LB - Appalachian State Logan Wilson, LB - Wyoming Raekwon Davis, DT - Alabama Chase Claypool, TE - Notre Dame Nick Harris, C - Washington Terrell Lewis, EDGE - Alabama
  3. where was he ranked as a Defensive tackle/DE prospect? is he typically thought as one of the top 5 in the draft, or a reach?
  4. yes there are die hards who want to win despite all consequences. But what I care not at all about is seeing a mediocre team winning meaningless game--or better, many fans just stop watching altogether. I tried but just couldn't watch this team the last half of the season for more than a few minutes here and there. All I care about is getting to a super bowl and to do that we needed very high draft picks given how little money we have for FAs. In my world, that makes me a fan. I'm just not blindly loyal--it hurts too much to see us mediocre year after year. It's a little like the South continuing to fight a much stronger enemy that was bound to win in time, just stubborn pride.
  5. I won't hide my disgust over what just happened. Months of us all thinking a multitude of creative scenarios for nothing. Anyway,... so who are we picking 2nd and 3rd round? got to have some hope!
  6. AMEN never been so discouraged as a fan, just meh we HAD to bring in talent this year to be anything more than mediocre how is it people on this board figure out such creative scenarios, and our GM can't even think to move back and get picks along with a great safety or the second best DE in the draft? 7-9 next year if we're lucky with so many good teams to play, but hey maybe tickets will be cheaper
  7. kinlaw after trade down and loss of third round pick
  8. so will tampa be! can't wait for those games with them, another chance at Brady!
  9. would it be better to select a cornerback or safety in the first round given our needs? how far off in abilities are the other cornerbacks from henderson?
  10. wouldn't it cost less to go with kinlaw (at around pick 10-12) as opposed to Brown (around pick 8)? We'd lose a 3rd rounder for kinlaw and 2nd rounder for brown, I suspect. is there much difference between them?
  11. just realized that it's not thursday got a little too excited question still remains--one day later thanks
  12. Just wondering about what time the falcons will pick at 16 tonight? IF we trade up to around pick 10, what time will that be approx? Will the actual draft start at 8 or is that just when the commentators begin talking? Same question for picks in second and third rounds on friday of course if we pick Young at pick 2, no picks tomorrow!
  13. a lot better than our new almost monochrome ones. I just don't understand why people don't prefer mainly red with some black. All black just doesn't look very falcon like
  14. wouldn't we have to go down to about #11 to get kinlaw?
  15. sorry I'm confused about the red helmet will that be our helmet for this upcoming season or the year after?
  16. much prefer a predominance of red over almost all black the hybrid red/black looks horrible very disappointing
  17. except we never would have had the 4th pick without tanking! I'd take 1989 Fan's picks any day over what we will end up with. I agree I shouldn't have been so sensitive though, I really didn't mean to make it controversial and was trying something different from "those threads made all the time" A thought experiment with an underlying point--without bold long term thinking (and risk taking) Blank will never produce what we all want. I think it will be a good draft, but we probably need better than good if we want to do more than Blank's attitude of just needing to make the playoffs like I said I am impressed with our FAs and hope they reach their potential
  18. I knew I was taking a chance with posting this. No problem if people don't want to jump in. There is a book called What If of articles by well known historians with questions like "What if D Day had failed?" Or "What if the british soldier who had Washington in his sights had chosen to shoot?" I happen to find these questions interesting, and am tired of the innumerable "we will pick Chaisson or Kenlaw" posts. It's a boring time of the year so I tried to mix it up. It's impractical and unrealistic I know, given our situation. But what it does point to is the idea that we'd be in a much better potential position if our organization (Blank, coaches etc) had decided to go another direction than win meaningless games at all costs. I could only afford to take my daughter to one game this year against the Titans, and we just looked awful--it's left a bad taste in my mouth ever since and I remain unconvinced Blank is willing to do everything needed to get back to a super bowl. don't want to open a can of worms here, so please don't make this a tanking debate I have no problems with closing the thread if there is no interest in the original question. Just wish guys here would be open to ideas and not so reflexively defensive or jerky thank you for your comment Roanoke Falcon
  19. not sure why you have to be an obnoxious ^&&** about it. I specifically said this wasn't a tank vs non tank thread. are you truly saying no tanking has ever occurred? all year long I heard the experts say the dolphins were tanking (on nfl channel, espn) by letting go of some of their best players (their great OT for example) and trying to draft tua it may be that players don't want to tank but organizations might and other threads have mentioned how this might be done--playing their top players less because of "fear of injury" etc. I thought it would be interesting to see what we'd do if we had a top 5 pick
  20. Like many of you (perhaps the silent majority?) I am an admitted tanker. While I'm surprised how well our FA choices have looked and think we can get a good first rounder at 16, this team needed both a new head coach (who can make changes mid way through games) and a boatload of great draft picks to have any chance at being elite. Imagine for a moment if we had both a great new coach and picked within the top 5 for the draft. The excitement would be real-I personally pretty much lost interest in the second half of the season and that's never happened before. This is NOT a debate tanking vs. non-tanking thread! I don't know lots about the draft, as I'm just a typical fan. I'm looking to the experts here to become GMs for a day and share your strategies. A couple scenarios. Let's say we have the 4th pick in the draft. Who would you pick or would you draft back and pick up additional picks? It appears that there are several teams that would trade up and sacrifice a lot to get one of the top QBs. Would a Robert Griffen trade back be possible (You know the trade. In an effort to acquire Robert Griffin III, the Washington Redskins traded three first-round picks and a second-round selection for the St. Louis Rams' No. 2 overall selection)? Option 1: pick at 4 - Okudah or Brown. What would your choice be? Option 2: trade back to around 10. Pick 4 is worth 1800. Pick 10 is worth 1300. Get an extra high second rounder (500). Maybe get Kinlaw? Option 3: trade back for a team desperate for a QB and willing to overpay (not quite so much as the R Griffen deal but an extra high second, third and next year's second). what would be a realistic trade with what team and what could we get for it? Add who you would select for the second and third rounds, including extra picks if we trade back. Any ideas?
  21. A cowardly tanker I am then! again, I'd gladly bet if the nfl wasn't so ridiculously unpredictable the falcons just beat the 49ers! ha I always wonder about those vegas guys who advertise and claim to win all the time if so why do they need me to put down bets? wouldn't they already be ridiculously rich? do they do this out of the goodness of their hearts? also I wonder if the nfl is rigged but that's another can of worms you can go on youtube and find a couple rather 'questionable' incidents including where a running back signals with his hand to a defensive player to let him in the end zone
  22. unless you are rich, I'd say you might want to stop gambling altogether seriously that's a lot to lose the problem is that it's almost impossible to consistently bet well in the nfl I frequently think "I'll pretend I will bet on game X and game Y because obviously so and so team will win" but I'm often humbled. so many teams win that simply shouldn't given their past against seemingly much better teams sorry if I sound judgmental, I truly don't mean to be
  23. i think it's crazy to call a top 10 pick wildly overrated. we might not have done a great job in the past but we're much more likely to find elite talent there we needed an elite draft and we just wrecked our chances since the next two games are relatively easy to win we are picking at 12 at this point per tankathon I really think we've once again screwed ourselves and will be forever a bit above average especially given our lack of money for free agents, aging players, etc. I would have at least been really excited about the draft this year if we had a top 3-4 pick -- we could have even dropped down and picked up more picks there is just nothing exciting about this team anymore unless your biggest qualification is winning the occasional 'exciting game' rather than championships
