  1. I think its a great idea. Esp if we would have to cut an OL- why not just let him move to the D side of the ball and get snaps there while being our back up for the Oline. its not like he sucks at being a DT. Garlands versatility is what got him a 2nd round tender. He isn't a world beater but he can start in a pinch- obviously. Its not ideal depth but its solid for OC, OG, and DT. its like what they did with Joe Webb(sp?) and the Panthers. Back up QB3 and 4th WR/play maker.
  2. In all the mocks I do- I always cracks me up that he is sitting there in the second round. This draft is heavy with guys who can play OG and C. That's a good thing for us. I'd love for us to draft a NFL starting caliber OG to learn next to Mack .
  3. I'd take him in the 3rd in a heart beat. Bring in a FA guard and then move said FA guard over to left guard next after cutting levitre. (Sp) then plug Price into the lineup next season. I've been looking at Price and the more I look-see the more I like. Sucks for him- he is as good looking prospect that there is in this draft.
  4. Here is why: Smith: played three years at UGA Tre: played 3 at VT Solo tackles: Smith had 146. Tre had 112 Ast tackles: Smith had 106. Tre had 101. Tackle for loss: Smith had 20.5. Tre had 33. Sacks: Smith had 6.5. Tre had 10. Int: Smith had 0. Tre had 1. Pass defended: Smith had 3. Tre had 5. FF: Smith 3. Tre had 1. FR: both had 3. Tre is 6'5 255lbs and Smith is 6'1 and alot lighter. Also Tre played in 6 fewer games then Smith did. That's half a season. Also Tre is 20 years old right now. Tre gets the nod for me everyday if the week. Not say Smith isn't good (he reminds me of darron Lee) I'm just saying I think Tre will be better.
  5. Those are two guys I don't understand all the hype about. Tre Edmunds is the best LB in this draft IMO. Minkah is a project in my book. What is his TRUE position?
  6. In what world does he not primarily play DT?!? Provide a link please. Otherwise, shame!!
  7. uh...yea he does...
  8. He wont be there at 26. esp after the combine. Payne probably won't be there either- payne is NFL ready right now. He raw power is great and his interior pass rush is good too. Payne is a NT while Hurst is 3Tech. I disagree- Hurst has a great motor. if the kid out of florida is there at our pick in the second- sure, but I'm not taking him with the first. my two cents. I am looking at Tim Settle out of VT. he will be there with the 2nd pick and maybe the 3rd.
  9. I dont mind the 1st round pick as I saw you have us keeping Poe and getting FA OG. I can't get on board with the 2nd round pick. I think better receivers can be had in later rounds- I'm for sure not trading two more picks for WR in the 2nd round this year. Also a QB in the third? not this year- no way. I could see us spending a 6th or 7th on a QB- but I rather trade one of those for denvers guy. just my two cents
  10. Yea man I'm sold. That speed. Smh. It be great to have that on the field in a falcons jersey.
  11. Yea i wish I included either of the NC State's- DT's- they are really good and more of the pure DT/NT/ability to take on two blockers that we will probably look at if we don't bring Poe back. But I did this with the possibility of Poe returning and keeping the Starting NT spot.
  12. As I sat back and thought about it- I came to the conclusion that some members on here were spot on about our need at DT. The more I think about it the more I think it is the biggest hole on the entire D. We have Grady, who is a stud. Poe has a 50/50 shot of staying here, so that is what it is. We will get Crawford and Shelby back(even though they are left DE's that have the ability to move to DT on certain downs when needed. Upshaw is a UFA. Rubin is 31 and a UFA. Then we have two young guys singed to Futures contract: Joey Ivie out of Florida(was a 7th round pick by the Cowboys last year- has some interesting tape), and Taniela Tupou a DT out of Uni. of Wash. So as of right now we have one true DT and Two DE who can play some DT and two DTs that haven't play any NFL minutes. Needless to say we will bring in some vet help and/or draft a DT in the first 3 rounds this year. Now depending on what type of DT you are looking for, one could be had later in the draft that could be everything you want. I think we should look for another stud to put next to Grady- even if we do resign Poe. We did grab Grady in the 5th but he was graded as high as a 2nd rounder but fell because of size concern... smh. My top guy- Vita Vea- will not be there at 26. I think as we get closer to the draft these DT's will be a reason why guys like OG Wynn and TE Andrews will fall to 26(and possibly the 2nd round 26- with Andrews). With that said here are MY top DT's in this here draft! 1. Da'ron Payne : This guy is strong, not Vita Vea strong but strong. He has great hustle and played nose tackle for the Tide. Has the size(6'2 on paper but i'd give him 6'3 easy and 310lbs) and quickness to contribute in the run game from day one. One on One block rarely beats him. If we had Poe and this kid next to each other on goal line plays- good luck running it. If OG Wynn and Payne are sitting there at 26... now that is one tough call, but I would probably go with Payne... na' OG Wynn...nope it's Payne... ahhh! 2. Tim Settle: This is where is differ from alot of the talking heads. Most would have Hurst here or the kid from Stanford or the kid from FL St. Not me and I will tell you why. Size. He plays nose tackle at 330 but has almost as good a first step as Hurst IMO... ok that might be a stretch but its still a solid first step. I firmly believe that if Settle was two inches taller he'd be a 2nd rounder- maybe a first rounder. Sound familiar?!? He plays with drive and isn't afraid to stick his nose between guards and centers- he goes and gets it. Almost demanding attention. Great swim move and the drives thru with his legs- really impressive for a guy 6'3- 320lbs+. Oh and he is only 20 years old. One knock if seen on him is ability to anchor properly- but with his size I think this is something that can be taught. I wouldn't mind if Payne was gone so we can get this guy in the third, but I think by the time the draft comes around he could sneak into the 2nd. But hey what do I know he could be there in the 4th too if he stays where he is currently ranked by the talking heads 3. Maurice Hurst: Real recognize real. As much as I wanted to rank him lower in my book- I couldn't deny it after watching tape. This guys get off would make DE's blush. Even when he reads run he is quick off the snap and gets to the POC first which helps him because he isn't the strongest DT in this draft. His stop and go ability is top notch and his change of direction to kick out and chase down a screen is also top notch. I think it is possible for Hurst to be drafted BEFORE Payne- if not, then probably right after him. I know I compared Settle to Grady but Hurst is the one that really reminds me of Grady. Height and wieght "issues"(6'2 under 290lbs), but have super high ceilings. 4. Taven Bryan: Another guy that will get his name called before Tim Settle and for good reason I suppose. He is raw as a DT and may be more suited to play and DE in a 3-4(what do you think?) Had his break out year this past season and showed flashes of a seriously good DT. To me, I have seen too many guys with that tag line coming out only to become a decent player. At 6'4 and 295lbs- he has the size that people would want. Has a solid motor and hustles. Great explosion off snap and solid hands to get off blocks. Like i said before he could turn out the be one of the better players in this draft. A day two pick. If we brought Poe back I wouldn't mind him in the 2nd... that is if he is still there. 5. Rasheem Green: This guy is interesting, Just like Taven Bryan- he has the shape that may be more suited for 3-4 DE or a LDE in a base 4-3 and then kick in on occasion. Kind of like Jack Crawford. Watching his tape you can tell he hasn't quite tapped into his full potential. Doesn't seem as strong as Bryan, but doesn't mean he won't be one day. Both he and Bryan would benefit if the team they go too has an established NT to play next too IMO. I'm not sure how much weight Green can put on and still keep his game on the same path. However I can see this kid becoming a very good pro at some point. Honorable Mentions: 6. Trent Thompson 7. RJ McIntosh
  13. Truth. I keep thinking that as I do love VIC- Grady was the pick we crushed the most. I hate talking about the Superbowl but his performance was... Sigh.. just great. Grady goes no where. He will be a priority to resign. He has beyond earned it.
  14. I was just thinking the same thing. lol If Willy Mo played in this defense he would pretty solid. Though Neal is a better tackler. Mo had better hands and coverage ability, but Neal is young and will end up being the better pro of the two.
  15. Yea I did one today in there using the guy from bleacher reports "big board" and some how both Smith and the LB from VT (Tre Edmunds?) Both were there at the Falcons picks... Lol I would love to have either but it's a big stretch to see even ONE of those guys there at our pick, so I took my draft with a grain of salt the rest of my draft
