  1. it’s getting comical at this point
  2. that dude was definitely DL and i aint talking bout D-Line
  3. again, not what i said. my response was to you posting a highlight video as your proof that the dude is gonna be good, and my point was that you can't take HIGHLIGHTS against small school guys as your only pre-draft evaluation. but you knew that, and chose to ignore the fact that i quoted and replied to you directly. i didn't even make the point that i don't think Ferguson will be good, my point was that your logic is massively flawed if you took a look at his HIGHLIGHT tape and made your mind up that he's worth picking. "when the games start there won't be any cones on the field" you're right, but there will be big boy NFL Tackles instead of cones, and if you can't run around cones that fast, what makes you think you can run around Lineman??? of course there are examples of small school guys who flourish in the NFL, much like there are examples of guys who test well at the combine who suck in the NFL. but to me, a super slow 3-cone time is more indicative of flexibility and ability to turn the corner as a pass rusher than a HIGHLIGHT tape of him racking up stats against Joe Shmoe from Alcorn State. stop making it out to look like my point is that small school guys suck, it clearly wasn't. but you knew that.
  4. that's not what i said you posted a video of his highlights against scrubs as if it were some mic drop in response to people hating on his tested times. i simply implied that a youtube highlight tape is as, if not more, ineffective at projecting NFL success than combine numbers.
  5. when the games start there won't be too many LTs or RTs that went to North Texas or Southern either
  6. yeah I get that in theory he would still be a great pick, I agree. I just don't see TD and co doing it. I've given up hope in this front office ever drafting good o-linemen after Sam Baker, Garrett Reynolds, Lamar Holmes, Mike Johnson, Joe Hawley, Sean Harlow, Peter Konz, Jake Rodgers, and Wes Schweitzer. Jake Matthews is the perfect example of throwing **** against the wall and seeing what sticks, and he's the only piece of **** that stuck.
  7. this is why signing both Carpenter and Brown bummed me out quite a bit. grabbing 2 Guards in FA on top of not cutting Fusco makes it very unlikely we go Guard in the draft and I thought we really needed to finally invest in drafting some young interior lineman. Prescod would be the ideal pick for us imo, but alas he probably wont be a Falcon. Hopefully Carpenter and Brown don't flop.
  8. eh who cares, we got Beasley....
  9. i would love for us to get Taylor, but i'm not sure he'd be there at 14 and i don't think he'd be worth moving up for. i'm glad to see that they are interviewing these guys though. must mean they're serious about fixing the o-line
  10. lol why? you not a fan of drafting a punter?
  11. oh i would too, i just don't see this staff taking the risk with this being a season they need to nail or they probably lose their jobs. but he'll probably fall right into New Englands lap at the end of the 1st
  12. - idk about that, i think it's more likely that there is a run on d-lineman at the end of the first as opposed to WRs or CBs. to me its probable that both Lawrence and Simmons both go at the end of the 1st. i feel like the best DL guys that would be available at 45 are like Dre'mont Jones or Jaylon Ferguson and i'm not really feeling that. We got 2 extra picks this year, why not take advantage and move up to secure our guy? - i was going to mock a safety or RB but i feel like we're really lacking in bodies on the d-line. I like the upside of Keke enough to pick him up in the 6th and have him replace the few snaps of a Zimmer or Bennett
  13. i think the Falcons are just about done in FA. if the FA market isn't there for Irvin we may re-sign him, but i don't think we end up signing Shelton. 14: Cody Ford T/G Oklahoma- the tough guy RT we so desperately need. Cam Jordan just tweeted out a Ryan Schraeder appreciation post because RS was so bad and Cam would just rack up sacks on him. We a mean dude to step in and hold their own, Cody Ford is that dude. *trade up scenario* we trade receive pick #27, Raiders receive picks #45, #79, and next years 3rd round pick. i'm not gonna act like i know trade values and all that but two 3rd rounders to jump up 18 spots seems like something i guess? 27: Dexter Lawrence DT Clemson- of course if we end up signing Shelton i don't anticipate us going after Lawrence, but so far based on reports he seems to be a guy we are very interested in. Falcons have already met with him and apparently have another meeting scheduled. Grady Jarrett played his best ball when lined up next to a big dog that soaks up double teams. Dexter is a huge dude, but he isn't a real sloppy fatty, hes like a big strong kinda fatty who is light on his feet. Quinn has set out to add size, strength, and toughness to our lines, and he does it with the first 2 picks. 117: Terrill Hanks LB New Mexico State- waiting from pick 27 to pick 117 is brutal, but luckily there is a lot of talent still to be had, and TD and company tend to do better with 4th round picks than they do 3rd round picks anyways. Hanks is one of my favorite LBs in this class when it comes to fit for this defense, next to Vosean Joseph but without a 3rd round pick we won't have a chance at Vosean. admittedly i haven't seen too much New Mexico State football games, but watching the game clips on youtube, this guy screams urgent athleticism. Duke isn't cutting it and Foye is a solid rotational guy but not yet full time starter quality. With the high probability of losing Campbell next offseason, we draft his eventual replacement. 137: Lamont Gaillard C/G Georgia - i like this guy as much as the rest of you guys, but i thought about not mocking him here because it just doesn't seem likely to me that we draft him. I haven't seen any links to us interviewing him or any reports in us being interested in him. This is just wishful thinking i guess. But he is a great fit for our offense and would be the eventual replacement for Mack all the while being great depth at Guard. 152: John Cominsky DE Charleston - we need d-line depth bad. letting go of Reed, McClain, and Shelby doesn't seem like too big a loss, but they were healthy bodies for DQs heavy rotation. Cominsky is a guy we talked to at the senior bowl and he crushed it at the combine. Dude looks big and explosive, and hes just the kind of guy that DQ looks for (high level athlete that he can highlight his talents). 172: Corey Ballentine CB Washburn - im realizing as i type this that i have too many small school guys in this mock but o well. Ballentine is another height/weight/speed guy that DQ would love. While we are stuck with Trufant for the time being and we have Kazee and Allen capable of playing the nickel, there is no rush to throw Ballentine out there. Corner is hard to play as a rookie and he could use some seasoning, but while he is developing, he brings KR/PR abilities as well and would be good competition for Barner 186: Kingsley Keke DT Texas A&M - i've seen draft sites that have him rated from 4th round to 7th round so idk where to mock him, but i liked what i saw out of him at the senior bowl and he seems to use his hands well. In desperate need for d-line help, we add another body. 231: Mitch Wishnowsky P Utah - we are paying Bosher way too much money for how not great he is. we need to find his replacement and free up a little more money for say *fingers crossed* Bruce Irvin or Danny Shelton tell me what you guys think
  14. everything ive seen on draft sites says Terrill Hanks is a 3rd-4th round pick, i would love for us to draft him tho. he jumps out to me whenever i watch his clips on youtube.
