    Tim Mazetti reacted to Rings in Quarterback At Four   
    Smith doesn’t need a top back to run his offense, Henry wasn’t the Henry you know now prior to Smith getting to Tenn.  Also, if TF wants to be a GM for more than one season he isn’t taking a RB top ten.

    I'd ride Ryan and Julio out til the end of their lifetime contracts, unless some team loses their mind and offers a deal we can't refuse. That's what Dimi set up. There will be college boys coming out every year that will be just as attractive. Even NFL pros that might make more since. Brady just won a Bowl. Stafford just got traded. Watson is on the move. Build a supporting cast then add the QB when it makes more sense.

    and then, they may be better
    and there are a ton of current QBs playing that had less than two years starting in college. so how do we know that next guy won't be out there next year or two years from now. 
    trade back, get some next year picks to use to trade up if need be.

    I'm very much in the "keep Matty Ice" camp, but man I would hate to be in our front office's shoes. Who would want to be the GM that passed on a potentially great QB? Glad that decision is not mine to make.

    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.

    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.

    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

    I thought for sure we were gonna go Brian Burns or Dexter Lawrence. That being said, Lindstrom is one of the best OGs in the NFL already and will likely be a rock on our O-Line for a decade.
    The real mess-up was trading up for McGary.

    Ya know, I always hated the Koetter hire and I thought that surely even he couldn't screw up the offense with that crazy roster. Last season proved to me once and for all how coaching is the most important element of the game. 
    Koetter just straight up ran the wrong scheme with our personnel. That's a big part of why they were terrible.
    Now, we've got Arthur Smith and Dean Pees, two coaches who hang their hats on adaptability. This means the scheme will be made to work with our players, and that to me is a recipe for wins.
    I expect the offense to make a dramatic turnaround. I think we will have a winning record this season. My biggest concern is if it's gonna be like 2015 again where we were still learning the offense so it wasn't as successful as the next season. Really curious about how long it takes to get used to the offense.

    Weren't the Falcons statistically the greatest 4-12 team in NFL history?  
    Lol but seriously, losing 7 games by a combined something like 13 points, that's not a terrible team.  It's an undisciplined team that just couldn't finish games.  
    They just had terrible coaching and terrible results.  
    Teams turn it around quickly every year, maybe with these seemingly huge upgrades in the staff, we can finally get back to winning football.

    Pick 4 Atlanta Falcons Patrick Surtain · CB School: Alabama | Year: Junior
     
    Surtain is a big, long, fast cornerback with the ability to mirror and match pass routes. He can strangle the catch point and is exactly what the Falcons need as a top-tier CB1.

    I'm going with William Andrews. Before his knee injury he was...man.  Watch the one clip of him HITTING Ronnie Lott after a screen pass.  I'd never seen Lott affected by anything.  He was a humble assassin.
    My mother worked at Tommy Nobis Center.  I remember Wallace Francis..Steve Bart...and Andrews..his thighs were bigger than me.
