  1. I wouldn't be so sure given he's a draft pick from a different regime and not even breaking 20 snaps in their opener.
  2. Nah, Cali actually. Being from a previous regime is another thing I didn't address. That means more than some may think. He isn't a Wilks pick.
  3. It's a stupid reason. The board still acts like every single person on the roster has to have an identical personality & character traits.
  4. Where have you heard this? Everything I've heard is it's more Arizona moving him all over instead of letting him adjust to one position. What what I've seen Arizona just doesn't know how to handle him and I think Dan Quinn had a plan for this when he wanted him last year.
  5. I actually think that's a **** good offer that would be considered
  6. No one ever said he'd be an instant contributor. I said he'd fit much better in Atlanta then Arizona. He'd be a rotational guy with the other 1-2 guys we've brought in/will rotate in wake of Deion's injury.
  7. I don't know about 4-6. I think maybe a 3rd right now would be around his range, I'd be elated if we could get him for less than that. My thing is, Dan Quinn wanted him badly it seemed. We saw sooo many rumors from so many different outlets that we were looking for a trade up if he fell out of the top 15. He went 14. Daniel Jeremiah said we threw out an offer but it was declined. We had a vision for him and I think he fits perfectly. He's better than any of the depth we've brought in post injuries.
  8. Reddick was very underwhelming as a rookie. This year in preseason he didn't do much, didn't even get much playing time. Week 1 of the regular season and he's seemingly fell behind on the Cardinals depth chart behind playing only 19% of their defensive snaps. 14 snaps overall. In Arizona's post game press conference, Steve Wilks was asked about Haason Reddick and why he hasn't been able to land more playing time and his answer was a short, simple "He's still trying to figure out of the position". Reddick's rookie year with the Cardinals was maligned by position moves where he was never able to settle into one spot and really get comfortable. I honestly feel like they've done him a disservice so far. Most teams would be reluctant to trade off a first round draft pick so quickly but if the organization feels like we're truly in "win now" mode, I think it would be worth looking into. Dan Quinn was reportedly in love with Haason Reddick's potential so much that Atlanta considered a trade up to get him. It didn't happen, but Dan Quinn obviously had a vision for where he fits in on the defense and the way he's molded the young linebackers we've had so far and the progress we've seen from a guy who couldn't be more raw in Oluokun, I'm inclined to believe Dan Quinn could put Reddick's career on the right trajectory. I don't know what sort of draft/trade capital we'd have to give up to make this happen, but is this something you'd like to see the Atlanta Falcons explore?
  9. Quinn has a big say in who gets drafted, doesn't he? I thought when he was brought on he was given control of those sorts of decisions although he and TD collab well.
  10. I see what you did there.... And I like the way you think Cole World.
  11. That is encouraging. Especially considering the 2019 DT class is looking absolutely insane at the moment. There's 5-7 guys that all look like they could be top 15 talents. Hard to say now of course, gotta play out next year but watching cut ups of some of these guys from last year is just a sight to behold. TD should sell the soul of the team to get into the top 5 for an Ed Oliver-Dexter Lawrence type.
  12. Care to elaborate or just not much else to it?
  13. I'm not sure how a Front Office in the NFL thinks. Do they have players on their radar in terms of future draft classes? If so, do you think this could have played a factor in lack of DL drafting in the early round for us or do you think Quinn and TD just chose to go with the BPA and let the D-Line sort itself out with the help of Quinn's excellent defensive coaching? I know we've got a lot of college football buffs around these parts and if you're tuned into the college scene, next year could be an out of this world draft class in terms of defensive prospects, especially the defensive line. I can name 5-6 guys off the top of my head at DT/DE that looked like top 10 players LAST year. Guys like Ed Oliver, Dexter Lawrence, Rashan Gary, Raekwon Davis, Christian Wilkins etc. There's 5 guys that could be TOP 10 players in their class and that's just DTs. That's the reason I'm asking the question. Do you think teams (namely ATL) look toward the future or is that way too far out for them to even worry about? My assumption would be they have no idea about these guys as they already have enough to worry about. What do you guys think?
