  1. From that draft class, 20 players had their 5th year options picked up and 12 didn't. I think the fact we picked up his option shows the team feels he is worth the value, and we know in 2016 no one would have called him a bust. Hopefully he can prove that year wasn't a fluke moving back to DE full time. I wonder if the move to OLB was a sneaky move by the team last year. The option on a LB is $2million lower than the option on a DE.
  2. I used StubHub the one time I went and it was great. Had the tickets emailed to me months in advance https://www.stubhub.com/atlanta-falcons-tickets-atlanta-falcons-atlanta-mercedes-benz-stadium-10-22-2018/event/103577544/?sort=price+asc
  3. It is going to lead to kickers working on doing higher kickoffs and trying to land them inside the 10 - just like on a punt.
  4. Yep. That's him.
  5. More of this:
  6. There is no chance. Dimitroff gave up a lot to get him and will do what it takes to keep him.
  7. Lets go to an ad and talk about Mason Rudolph
  8. Good call!
  9. There are 5 picks to go before the Falcons. 2 of them are the Bucs who probably won't take a DT after taking one already
  10. Lots of teams moving up to take positions of need, leaving us with a good choice of the remaining DT's
  11. Atlanta Falcons: Takkarist McKinley, DE/OLB, UCLA: C Grade One-Year Grade: A Grade I was concerned about Takkarist McKinley's health, which is why I gave the Falcons a "C" grade for the pick. However, unlike other players with medical red flags like Jonathan Allen and Malik Hooker, McKinley was able to have an injury-free rookie campaign. McKinley recorded six sacks despite playing limited snaps, and he was actually more effective than Vic Beasley. In fact, I actually argued that McKinley should be getting more snaps than Beasley, and perhaps that'll happen in the near future. Original Write-up: So, let me get this straight? Jonathan Allen and Reuben Foster fell because of injury concerns, yet Takkarist McKinley doesn't? Maybe McKinley could've gone a bit earlier, but he won't be able to play to open the 2017 season, unlike Allen and Foster. The Falcons are attempting to reach the Super Bowl this year, so not being able to have McKinley at full strength isn't ideal. He could be a great player for the Falcons once he's healthy, but the injuries are a concern. I'm giving the Falcons a "C" as a result. I don't like giving up the third-rounder to get McKinley when there were lots of good pass-rushers on the board. Read more: http://walterfootball.com/nfldraftgrades1.php#ixzz5CsJYSEUp
  12. I think you would have to go TE
  13. It's pretty hard to see us drafting anything except a DT in this draft. Unless a TE dropped to us, but even then, I think DT. A lot of visits have been with later round OL.
  14. Daniel Jeremiah has us taking him in the first round. He says: "Bates is one of my favorite players in the draft. He's a true center fielder with tremendous upside."
