    But one of the 1st is, if you think about it, you might could trade that pick and move back for "4" picks and draft all LB's, all of which would not be able to cover the person you had a chance to pick in the first place. 


    Just so well stated. I was thinking about getting this pick and that pick to trade down.........Now you got me cogitating......not to be confused with.............


    I just will have to wait and enjoy the excitement. "They"say one man cannot defend this prospect. Sounds okay here. 160915okt.jpg.2500dd27e464ec298d5b72b629d0355a.jpg

    Good workout. My real problem he isn't going to be able to fix. One year wonder, I hate the thin resume. Hard to justify to me when you have a Justin Fields in you backyard playing the high level teams you expect. If you go QB which I'm all in on, Lance is the biggest gamble. 

    Not saying it couldn't pay off, you just better hope you choose right. 

    Agreed. Not a four pick. He looks competent on his reads and release. He will go one/two. 

  3. Well now. "He has had more responsibility than any other QB in this draft class." One year wonder....or not. Lined up under center.........Hmmmmm. Play action.

    Edit I am only in for three minutes. I have never seen a pro day! Thank you @ADAMSVILLE GYM

    Edit: Eight minutes in.....Nice.

    Edit: A mean fast ball @ 14:00 and 14:10. not Glavine, but gets it there where it is catchable.

    Can't hit nor catch a Glavine outside "plate nibbler" Of course. Dammit I want baseb...never mind.

    That’s the thing about being a leader.  You assess all of your options while taking into account what might be the best outcome for your team’s future. You pray for wisdom & make the move without regard to what others might think.  Never making decisions based upon fear.  It doesn’t matter what others might say.  At the end of the day you must live with yourself knowing you did your best & arrived at your decision with good intentions & a pure heart.

    There you go again HB3. I love your aggressive approach to living in a competitive world my friend.

    If Zach Wilson is there I don't pass on him.  I think his talent at the most important and key position on the football field is too much to pass on even if he has to sit a year or 2.  If we make a playoff run next year with MR2 and we want to give Zach a shot trade MR2 and see what you can get for.  The market is trending toward offensive players and in a post playoff scenario MR2 will garner interest

    Yessir. Must have a Franchise QB to compete in the league.

    I would be extremely surprised if we take a QB at 4. I'm not with taking a QB at 4 and having him sit for potentially 2 years. He definitely won't start year 1 and he may not even start year 2. I mean for all we know, our team could have a really good year and they won't want to mess that chemistry up by changing QB's. 

    Yes, but this may be a gift in that the forthcoming draftable QBs maynot be as good. MR2 is world class. I know. 

    I like to hedge though. A player who touches the ball on the snap is golden. Ryan can play for four? more years. Options are intriguing at four. Better not miss.

    Idonno. This will be good to watch.


  7. Examining the Falcons 1st round options: Quarterback

    By David J Walker@FalcoholicDW



    Having a draft pick in the top 5 is actually somewhat rare for the Falcons. The last time it happened was in 2008 in the aftermath of the Michael Vick scandal and the Bobby Petrino disaster of 2007. Having a pick this high gives you a host of options, with the hope being that you won’t be here again for a long while.

    In this series, we’ll take a look at all the different ways the Falcons can use this pick to rebuild under a new regime. Today, we start with using it to draft a quarterback, one of the most controversial options and one that’s frequently discussed both here and in the wider fanbase.

    Why it makes sense

    Matt Ryan will be 36 this year and his performance the last two years has been below his normally high standards, albeit not drastically and under the watchful eye of Dirk Koetter. In the eyes of many fans, Ryan may only have 2 or 3 more good years left in him, and this QB class is good enough to find a future starter outside of the top pick. A player like Justin Fields, Zach Wilson, or Trey Lance may be there at 4, and those players have the potential to be great QBs. Plus, as noted above, the Falcons have not had many top-5 picks over the years so this opportunity may not present itself again for some time.

    There’s also the fact that Atlanta has a brand new front office and coaching staff coming in. Ryan will have to be replaced at some point, and it’s hard to fault a new front office for trying to find “their guy” at the beginning of their tenure. After all, it’s exactly what Thomas Dimitroff and Mike Smith did 13 years ago with Ryan, though Atlanta had no obvious long-term quarterback at that time.

    Why it might be the wrong move

    Barring a stunning move by the Jaguars, the Falcons won’t be able to get the top QB of this class in Trevor Lawrence. After him, the next three prospects look promising but all have their own sets of issues. Zach Wilson is a bit of a one-year wonder with some potential character concerns. Justin Fields is incredibly talented but his field vision needs to improve. Trey Lance may be incredibly gifted, but he has so few starting games under his belt. That’s not to say these guys can’t succeed, but all of them have notable question marks, and if you pick a player this high you can’t really afford to miss.

    On top of that, we’ve seen recently that many quarterbacks can play into their late 30s at a high level. Ryan has been incredibly healthy in his career and his physical talents don’t appear to be a problem. He could very well play for 4 to 5 more years if he stays healthy, and with a great team around him could at least keep this team contending over that span.

    Finally, when looking at this team, there are a host of spots on the defense in need of fixing. The safety situation is dire as is the need for multiple pass rushers. The team could also stand to continue investing in the offensive line and the running back position is a big question mark. Quarterback - right now - is just not a big need.
