  1. Lindstrom is not a center. He played RT and guard. Bradbury would have been the guy to take as replacement for Mack. Just a stupid pick at 14. Nice player, but they could have traded down 10 spots and still got Lindstrom.
  2. McShat has him #41 and The Athletic had him at 36. Bottom line, trade down if you want to take that guy. Dexter Lawrence, Bradbury, and several others would have been more valuable and better picks.
  3. You guys are ridiculous. Lindstrom was rated No. 36. You don’t draft an OG no. 14. Trade down, get more picks...Taylor, Ford, Burns, Sweatt, Dillard, Bradbury, and Lawrence ALL hold more draft value. Once again Dimitroff $#!ts the bed and makes a panic move after Wilkins went off the board,
  4. Dimitroff wouldn’t know a great offensive lineman if one b!#@% slapped him.
  5. I don’t think it’s silly to think Quinn and Dimitroff are ALL IN on this draft. They HAVE to win this year or they are toast. Why not trade up into the top 5? Why not off load Vic Beasley, who was just like Montell Jordan, a one hit wonder? Why not go get Bosa, Allen or Quinnen Williams? Or draft the best OL in the draft to protect your $130 million QB, who ain’t getting any younger or more nimble? All those veteran FA signings could be just for a big move on Thursday. The Falcons need a difference maker to go along with Grady and Takk. It’s not a re-invigorated Vic Beasley. It’s Bosa or Allen on the edge. It’s Williams, Wilkins or Oliver inside. I say make the big move move and get YOUR guy, not an acceptable player at 14
  6. Wilds is a one cut back. He has good power and speed. However, he is as brittle as a twig and is often missing games because of injury. I watched him play every game he has played in college, many of them in person. He has the talent and abili, but he goes down too easily, and to be as athletic as he is, he dose some of the most unathletic things Inhave ever seen. Until his senior season he was also plagued by fumbles. It it will be interesting to see how it shakes out with Wilds, but I would not get overly optimistic about him being a factor in Atlanta.
  7. The problem is Shanahan and play calling. His scheme has become very predictable. Formations, personnel groupings and down and distance are dead give away so. There is no going off script, his play calling on down and distance has become predictable. Falcons need to self scout and change things up during the bye week.
  8. That's all on the offense, particularly, Matt Ryan. The turnovers cost the Falcons the game. The OL is still simply not good enough. But Ryan has not been in his A game for about 3-4 weeks now. And BTW...I tried to tell all you guys infatuated with Vic Beasley he was not the answer. Look at his build right now, I bet he's not over 235 pounds. He's a total non factor. Another Dimitroff bust.
  9. Ryan is Elite. Pass rush is still lacking. Still not sold on OL or Hankerson being No. 2 option. Let's see how it plays out. Winning division in year one would be huge for DQ. Roster still needs work to be a title contender.
  10. Johnson was spot on with his comments. Team looks out of sync on offense. Early drop by Julio was big. Tamme drop was a drive killer. Credit Washington. They came to play.
  11. You must not have watched him play much. He was at worst the 3rd best back in he draft, and possibly the best with Gurley's knee being questionable. Many Big 10 players thought Coleman was better than Gordon.
  12. That's. Not true. DiMarco was a TE/HB at South Carolina. I watched him make plenty of really good catches in college. He has excellent hands. I do know he had a couple of drops last season, ur he has been a dependable pass catcher,
  13. I think we should go DE or OL next. Plenty of backs in 4th rounder or later.
  14. another horrible pick by the FO. Should have traded back and drafted Dupree or Ray and added another pick. Beasley is a nice kid, but he will never hold up against the run or play above 235 pounds for a WHILE. Sorry, all you guys withe the man crush got your wish. He will be a mediocre player at best. Not getting back to the playoffs with him leading the pass rush. I'm out until TD is out. Peace!
  15. Bill Williamson said Falcons could be trading up at 4 with Oakland.
  16. I will take Ray over Beasley every day of the week. Beasley is the most over gulped player in Draft history ...only on TATF. Nowhere else does he get the love and hype as this board...Smdh.
  17. Beasley will be there at 18. He's not big enough to plat DEin a 4-3 and he can't play in space. He's a 3-4 guy only.
  18. Fowler and Williams are the only two players TD and DQ would even consider moving up for. Beasley is a marginal 1st round pick.
  19. If we are trading back to a late 1st, then why not draft Dupree? Personally I do hope we trade out of 8 for more picks. If Dupree is there, why not?
  20. Bennett has zero guaranteed money on his contract after the 205 season. He also took a discount to go back to Seattle. I think that is why he wants a new contract.
  21. And Sam was not even projected to be drafted. You can lock onto Beasley's jock all you want, but Shane Ray is a better DPR than Beasley.
  22. True, but Ray was injured and didn't pack on 20 pounds in 3 months for the combine due to his injury. Ray is an SEC elite pass rusher. He played against much, much better competition and most experts would tell you Shane Ray is the best pass rusher as a DE in this draft.
  23. Shane Ray is the best pure pass rusher in this draft. Fowler jr. Is the best fit for Q's defense. Fowler is similar to Melvin Ingram. A good friend of mine coached both Ingram and Fowler in college. He told me Fowler does not have the motor Ingram had coming out, but the upside is there. Beasley is a gamble. He could not play standing up at Lab in college because he couldn't play in space. He's too small to p,ay with his hand in the dirt. Crazy athlete and combine numbers? Sure, but I'm still not buying him as a top 10 draft talent. If Ray and Fowler are off the board, I'd rather trade back. This is a deep draft, but not a top heavy draft. Maybe top 6 beyond that...who knows. More value in the mid rounds and trading back to get an extra 2nd would be a good thing. ATL needs a lot of players, not just one undersized, overhyped guy like Beasley.
  24. Beasley would be the cirst DE to come out of Clemson in over 20 years that would not be a bust....if he turns out. I am not on the Beasley bandwagon. He's really NOT a fit imo. He's over hyped, just like Ricky Sapp, Daquan Bowers, Gaines Adams, et. Al. He's too light, I doubt he can hold the weight, at least for a couple of years. I would prefer Fowler, Williams, even Shane Ray. I would rather trade back and gain an additional pick than draft him at 8.
