    And the Falcons obviously think he is, or they wouldn't have traded up for him. Willing to bet you hadn't watched a snap  he'd played until last night.
    Falcons traded up to get in front of NE, who had serious interest in him. That should tell you something.

    If this is draft tape they need to spot shadow or point out the guy. Can't see numbers from the side smh

    Funny thing about that...OL rarely score over a 9.5 RAS. Braden Smith and Quenton Nelson did. So did the two guys we drafted last night.

    Fingers crossed that the 2019 Falcons will be the 2018 Colts. Colts had 2 rookie o-linemen that had stud seasons. Hoping for the same from the Falcons. I like that both players are nasty!! We badly need that!

    All I have to say about draft grades

    Lindstrom has All-Pro potential.
     
    Many posters hate the pick because picking a o-lineman in the 1st isn't sexy. People want a good dominating o-line, well you have to invest in it to have one most of the time.
     
    I love the Lindstrom pick.

    I don't retract my disagreement with how we've spent our Draft and FA cumulatively. However, the picks themselves are something I think we may well look back on as really solidifying this line, potentially for the next decade.
    First off, some background. RAS stands for Relative Athletic Score. It's a metric created by Kent Platte, and it compares things like size, speed, explosion, and agility to previous prospects. It's remarkably effective at projecting future success for draft picks, especially on the OL. Of the 25 pro bowl tackles selected in the first round that have been measured by this metric, 21 have over a 8.00 RAS. Looking over all the metrics, low scores are consistently excellent at predicting bad players, and high scores are consistently excellent at predicting good players.
    The same logic seems to apply to Falcons drafts. Since 2008, we have made a total of 13 OL picks under Dimitroff. These are their RAS scores, already adjusted to account for the increase in athleticism of prospects coming out.
    Adjusted RAS Scores
    Sam Baker: 4.32
    Garrett Reynolds: 1.35
    Mike Johnson: 1.91
    Joe Hawley: 6.71
    Andrew Jackson: 6.34
    Peter Konz: N/A (scores not calculated, didn't do anything but bench, which went poorly - a bad sign in and of itself)
    Lamar Holmes: 5.01
    Jake Matthews: 9.50
    Jake Rodgers: 6.93
    Wes Schweitzer: 7.38
    Sean Harlow: 5.96
    Chris Lindstrom: 9.84
    Kaleb McGary: 9.83
    As you can see, I've already bolded the ones who were over that 8.0 score criteria. Pretty impressive, right? I'd be hard pressed to spend an early pick on a guy who didn't fit this criteria after looking up the details.

    Look at the ones there that are first round picks. It's almost like there isn't a shot at them being busts. It's incredible, really. If all holds true, our line should look immensely improved this year.
    Still iffy on the defense...but, eh. Here's hoping.

    Of course everyone is going to complain about the pick. I love the pick. Big nasty guard. our oline was crap outside matthews and mack. 
  12. HouseofEuphoria liked a post in a topic by FalconFan'72 in lmao   
    Did people forget that Matt was getting the line pushed in his face all season? I loved the idea of building defense but a staple next to mack in the middle will buy more time to actually make plays. We all want a flashy pick, but we all know we needed help on both sides of the line. The best guard in the draft is not a bust.

    For me personally, I've recently been sold on the idea of him being capable of being a 3-down player. His power is undeniable and he has good awareness to get his hands into passing lanes. Another aspect that I really like is that he is still young, Dex is only 21 and won't be 22 until mid November. 
    Oh and for as much love as Wilkins gets (from me included), Dex had similar athletic testing numbers. Here are their Combine & Pro Day results:
    DT Christian Wilkins: 6-foot-3 1/8, 315 pounds, 40 time: 5.04, 225 bench press: 28 reps, 29.5 inch vertical
    DT Dexter Lawrence: 6-foot-4 4/8, 342 pounds, 40 time: 5.05, 225 bench press: 36 reps

    End of tomorrow which would be top 3 rounds

    I think we are transitioning to a more physical style play and do not have the RB to do so. Also I dont think its very smart to rely on Free to stay healthy. I see the Falcons filling the void by the end of tomorrow

    I will lol if Snyder goes full (I used a word here that required my mouth to be washed out) again after being burned with Griffin.  Some guys just don't learn.
    *** ^^^ mouth washed out?  I'm a grown *** man, please remove the snowflakes from the mod/filter writers.  R3tard means slow.  Full R3tard is a movie quote.   Mouth washed out??? I'm from a Christian family that didn't mind breaking out a belt, and I promise r3tard was never on the do not use list.  /rantoff

    https://www.atlantafalcons.com/news/falcons-exercise-fifth-year-option-on-pro-bowl-safety-keanu-neal
    FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. – The Atlanta Falcons exercised the fifth-year option on safety Keanu Neal’s contract on Wednesday.
    RELATED CONTENT
    Jarrett signs Falcons' franchise tender Falcons 2019 free agency tracker Neal, 23, was selected by the Falcons with the No. 17 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. He has started every single game he's played during his three-year NFL career and was named to the Pro Bowl following the 2017 season.
    Neal tore his ACL in the Falcons’ season opener of the 2018 season and was sidelined for the remainder of the year. Since entering the league, Neal has recorded 220 tackles, 14 pass defenses, eight forced fumbles and one interception.
    Since the most recent NFL collective bargaining agreement, which took effect in 2011 and put in place the fifth-year option on first-round rookie contracts, the Falcons have exercised the fifth-year option on each player they’ve selected in the first round. Atlanta utilized the fifth-year option on receiver Julio Jones in 2014, but he agreed to a long-term extension with the team prior to the final year of his rookie deal.

    We will absolutely either draft a RB early or gain a starter type FA after early cuts.
    No way we go in the season with him and Ito Smith with all this talk of "we know it's about this year".

     I work with a die-hard Clemson fan, and asked him today -
    "Out of all 4 of your defensive linemen going into the draft, who's the best player, ready for NFL?"
    Immediately: "Dexter Lawrence, that guy's a beast."
