    Arkridge got a reaction from Osiruz in Marlon Davidson is the real deal   
    Throughout the process he’s always been viewed as a back of round 1 / early round 2 guy. 16 would’ve been way too rich, but at the same time not many expected him to fall to the middle of the second. Great pick imo.

    And the staff loves Senior Bowl players. We take at least one every year it seems. I could definitely see this guy as a 3rd-4th round target. I like him better then Cole Kmet. I don’t get it at all what scouts see in that guy.

    Yes absolutely. I was o n the Devin train last year. Simmons amd Moses look j ust as athletic to me. Kenny Willeke s is the Maxx Crosby of tnid draft so we cou ld get our D E late 2nd or even 3rd.

    As mock off-seasons and drafts start popping up as we come toward the end of the year, one position most people seem to be neglecting is linebacker. I rarely see any drafted to us but it's one of the biggest needs the team has. The LB unit has been able to get by but this season it's been a big liability and I think that's largely in part to Keanu Neal's injury given he plays so well around the line of scrimmage.
    Other than Deion Jones, we don't have many starting-caliber guys on the roster. If we're in the position to grab a potential starter at linebacker like Isaiah Simmons or even Dylan Moses, that may be the move. I think it's just as big of a need as a pass-rusher or a corner like all these media guys are projecting us to take. These are the linebackers the team currently has under contract:
    Deion Jones
    Foye Oloukon
    Jamal Carter
    Richie Brown
     
    That unit is looking rough going into next season. What do you guys think?

    Keanu's had a few bad injury breaks but he's still a great young player. You'd be crazy to want to move on from him at this point in time.

    Thank goodness someone brought up the topic of our needs at LB.
    Thanks Arkridge.
    I am disappointed in Atlanta for not getting a great middle LB to pair with D Jones.
    Imagine D Jones at weakside LB, and having a thumper at MLB.
    Was hoping for that with the last draft.....

    I’ve posted this before, but Simmons was at the very top of my preseason watchlist.  I watched a lot of his games and most of my mocks were centered around having him as our #1 pick.  But the more I watched him it hit me that the way he plays reminds me of our very own Vic Beasley.  Yes, they play different positions, but i saw more finesse than I’d like to out of a guy with his physical attributes.  He makes a lot of from behind/shoestring/clip at the toes kinda tackles, and while he is obviously on the higher end of the spectrum of triangle numbers in college I think he’ll be just a guy in the NFL. 
     
    Looks like Tarzan, plays not like Jane, but not like Tarzan either.  As an LB I like Kenneth Murray a lot more, who is just as fast but more physical (okay dan Quinn).  I would like Simmons a lot more at safety than LB.

    Good post. But if we had the chance to get 
    Brown, Delphit,  Swift, Blazz, Juedy, Epenza do you still go Moses or Simmons with your 1st?

    I agree that things have been looking better on that front, but I think another CB added to the mix would help our pass rush immensely.

    I agree that we need DL just as much but I think the secondary isn't as big of a need. Especially if we keep Trufant around I think both Oliver and Sheffield have shown plenty of flashes.

    Agreed.  I've been thinking this for awhile, but it is hard to fix every position group at once. Right now we need DL & Secondary help more.

    I'm still saying Isaiah Simmons. I think he falls a tad due to his lack of a perfect fit, but I think he'd be a HUGE upgrade in Campbell's spot. He has the size to cover any TE, he can rush the passer, he can drop back in coverage. He can do it all from that spot.

    “Nonetheless, Moses is still the better prospect. The Simmons hype is understandable. He’s 6’4″ and can move like a gazelle, but the 6’3″ Moses’ athletic traits are arguably on a par with those of Simmons.
    Ever since he was a young boy Moses has been busting his you know what to become the best football player he could be. Through waking up at 4:30 am and getting in a work-out that consisted of 400 pushups, 800 situps, 10 minutes of jump rope, and a one-mile run, Moses was able to run a 4.46 40-yard dash as a 6’1″, 215-pound, 14-year-old middle school running back.
      After shocking coaches and scouts with his 40-time, word quickly got out about the young phenom from Baton Rouge

    Arkridge got a reaction from Chitown2ATL_Falcon in How Would You Feel About Daniel Jeremiah As Our New GM?   
    While it isn’t a foregone conclusion that TD is out when/if Quinn is out but it’s a real possibility. I’m of the opinion that you wipe the entire thing and if they do, I think Daniel Jeremiah is an under the radar candidate.
    He was already getting some buzz around some sort of position with the Jets this offseason and with Mayock getting the Raiders gig I think DJ is “next up” regarding media members. I love his talent evaluation and philosophies regarding team building.
    On his podcast a week or so back he described Atlanta as a team with major talent but no identity/direction and said if there was a GM/Coaching change that it would undoubtedly be a coveted position because there are already pieces in place and a good draft pick incoming it seems.
     
    Could DJ be one of those potential candidates and how would you feel about him as potential GM of the Atlanta Falcons next year? I’d personally love a Daniel Jeremiah / Eric Beinemy pairing.. or DJ / Josh McDaniel.

    I actually like the idea. He played QB for Appalachian State in the 90s and served as a scout for the Ravens, Browns, and Eagles. So he's got playing experience and he's got actual NFL experience to apply to the job.

    Jeremiah has been a pretty good scout but if we were to go the route of hiring  a GM from the television ranks I would rather have Louis Riddick. He has solid scouting and front office experience.
