  1. Would be pretty sweet if Oliver was there at 14.
  2. You're right. I agree 100 percent. I'm not the big gambler type either. If it happened I wouldn't be upset though. I would just hope he is successful.
  3. @MSalmon That's a solid looking draft. Nice!!!!
  4. I'm not saying this is my dream scenario. I just wanted to do a realistic version of a trade up involving Oliver. My ideal situation is trading up using the 2nd rounder to get back into the 1st round. Just remember the only certainty in the draft is uncertainty. Yes the Falcons have been successful, but nothing is guaranteed. They could draft 9 busts, or 9 hall of famers, or something in the middle.
  5. I think it's important for everyone to remember the Falcons have 9 picks. No way are 9 rookies making the team. So you can either trade some of them away or you can watch them get cut. Either way it's a loss. Might as well get something out of it.
  6. Solid draft. Taylor is probably the ideal choice if available and Oliver is off the board. His ability to fill in at LT if needed makes this make so much sense. Awesome job @g-dawg
  7. Hard to argue what you did. Your draft looks solid on paper. Shame on the persons list that allowed Ferguson to still be there in the 4th. All time sack leaders don't fall to the 4th. I've done so many of these mocks on fanspeak I think I've got bored of it. Fun exercise though.
  8. I agree with what has already been said with the overkill on the O-line. Maybe you end up with 3 eventual starters but DQ and company can't sit back and wait 3-5 years. These guys would be on the bench in what's certainly a win now team. Also as already mentioned the picks seem a little unrealistic as far as when some got selected. Dean has 3 significant knee injuries in his career. Yes they were early and maybe it's unfair to label him injury prone. I'd rather go with a different corner though and not risk it. Overall I wouldn't mind a trade back and land Lawrence. Realistically we all know the Falcons will probably trade up. I hope they trade up with their 2nd rounder and get back into the 1st, if they feel a trade has to happen. Overall I applaud your effort @King Jigsaw
  9. The 1st thing to remember is the NFL is a business. Allow players to smoke and within 20 seconds social media is swamped with every player showing off his 10 pound collection, and smoking it. This would be bad buisness for the NFL considering kids idolize these guys. Parents would be outraged. The NFL would lose money. The NFL doesn't care about a few woe is me players, in fact it doesn't care about any of them. They are employees. Nothing more. They expect them to show up, do their job and go home. The same is expected of all of us at work. If you don't like how your employer conducts business find a new one.
  10. He compares pretty well to Donald. Just not as strong.
  11. They all know the risk and they all know the rewards. NFL players get paid what they do for a reason. Not everyone can do it. Not everyone would want to do it. They know from day 1 they can't smoke weed and they know there's the risk of serious long term injury playing football. None of it is a surprise to anyone. My point is they do have a choice.
  12. Ok now the New Orleans population can stop crying.
  13. It's deserving. Never should of happened.
  14. So get an education out of the free full ride that you got with a diploma in something that's worth more than just the paper it's printed on. Then go on to something you deem safer. Nobody is forcing people to play football.
  15. It's a shame he didn't work out. What a bust.
  16. It makes me sick when players complain about the side effects of playing football. Like they didn't know running full blast at each other and colliding was unsafe? Same thing with the retired ones suing. Everyone knows what they sign up for when they play the game of football. It's not like this is a new ban on marijuana that started 5 years ago. All I hear is a pity party from Irving. People know they can't smoke it in the NFL. However that doesn't stop them from taking a boatload of money then complaining about it. What's next? Are police officers going to demand to smoke pot and sue because their job is unsafe?
  17. Oh god, holding will be next.....

  19. @FalconBlood I applaud the attention to details. Awesome job.
  20. Tragic news. Condolences to the family, friends, and teammates.
  21. Definitely one of the best. He also was injured all the time.
  22. I believe there's 4 keys to success for the Falcons next year. Protect Matt Ryan, stop the run, run the ball well, and get to the opposing QB. No draft is enough to fill every teams needs. Also it's important to understand that any prospect can be a bust, or a hall of famer. What makes the draft so intriguing is there's no way to determine who will be what. The return of Freeman and the additions to the O-line should have the run game back in full swing. 14: R1P14 OT JAWAAN TAYLOR FLORIDA Day 1 starter at RT and the final piece to the offense. This gives Matt Ryan the pass protection he needs. 45: R2P13 CB AMANI ORUWARIYE PENN ST. Cutting Alford left a hole to fill at corner. Big, long, tall corner. Tackling is an issue but checks all the boxes for what you want from an outside corner. 79: R3P15 EDGE BEN BANOGU TCU Takk and Beasley are set to start so the Falcons may go a different direction here. I feel you can't have enough pass rushers and waiting past the 3rd round means not getting one at all. This adds depth to a position that has been a weakness since Abraham departed. Beasley may be gone next year and nobody would argue that. Then you have a question mark with the mental health of Takk. Insurance pick. 117: R4P15 C LAMONT GAILLARD GEORGIA Can't say anything here that hasn't already been said about him. An eye to the future as Mack's replacement and depth on the interior for now. 137: R4P35 DL DAYLON MACK TEXAS A&M Here's the big bodied run stuffer the defense has lacked up front. Stopping the run is essential to success on defense. Mack should be successful as a 2 down run stopper, short yardage, goal line stopper. 152: R5P14 LB BOBBY OKEREKE STANFORD Depth at linebacker position and special teams. Has sideline to sideline range but struggles to tackle. In Atlanta I give him one job on defense. Go get the QB. I would like to see more blitzing from the defense this year. 172: R5P34 S SHELDRICK REDWINE MIAMI (FLA.) Physical safety who should excel on special teams early in his career and an excellent tackler. 186: R6P13 RB DEVINE OZIGBO NEBRASKA Power runner who thrived in a zone scheme. This guy just seems like a match made in heaven for the Falcons. 230: R7P16 CB DERRICK BAITY KENTUCKY This draft has some depth at corner so I figured I would go back to the well. At 6'2" 197 he has the size Dan Quinn covets.
  23. Surely someone takes him before the Falcons are on the clock.
