  1. This is why you don't draft running backs in the 1st round.
  2. Every position but QB (all-in with Ryan) and RB (never pick a RB in the 1st round) should be in play. The thing to remember is by the time you get to the end of the 1st round, roughly two out of the ten players picked between #26 and #36 are going to be studs. It's an absolute necessity to get one of those guys and not the next Sam Baker or Peria Jerry. If the next Deandre Hopkins (#27 in 2013), Alec Ogletree (#28 in 2013), Travis Frederick (#31 in 2013), Harrison Smith (#29 in 2012), or Devin McCourty (#27 in 2010) is available, you pick them. You can never have too much talent.
  3. I'm largely fine with this but hate the idea of using decent mid round picks on a QB when you have a franchise guy. We're all in on Matt Ryan. Every move we make needs to be with the aim of winning a Super Bowl with Matt Ryan. Drafting a developmental QB doesn't help you win a Super Bowl with Matt Ryan.
  4. I hate the idea of picking the third best interior offensive lineman in the draft at #26. Normally the best interior player gets picked between #15-20. It's terrible value to get the third best guy at #26. If Wynn is gone, pick a different position. Don't reach for need.
  5. When considering whether the Falcons "need" Smith or not, the thing to remember is by the time you get to the end of the 1st round, roughly two out of the ten players picked between #26 and #36 are going to be studs. It's an absolute necessity to get one of those guys and not the next Sam Baker or Peria Jerry. If Smith is one of those studs, you pick him and find a place for him. It beats the alternative.
  6. They didn't rotate Poe and Jarrett because they're studs and you want them on the field. You only rotate players who aren't studs.
  7. Great point you can at least partially scheme around lack of an elite DT by rotating. A guard has to be able to play every snap. You can't play one guy on running plays and another for passing.
  8. Whoever the Falcons draft in the 1st round has to be a 10-year player. We can't pigeon hole ourselves into a lesser DT who may only have the career of Corey Peters and miss out on a Pro Bowler at another position.
  9. I can agree with this. LGB is a unique player, like the Robert Horry of the NFL. It doesn't seem he really cares about touches and regular season stats. It seems he really likes being a post season wildcard who can go crazy and make a huge play at any time.
  10. There's definitely something to the money aspect. The Falcons are already paying Mack a ton, Schraeder and Levitre a decent amount, and are close to giving Matthews a big raise. I know the cap has been going up a lot lately, but generally NFL teams are not able to dedicate that many high salaries to one unit. Whether the solution is Wynn or not, one way or another the Falcons need a good value and not top of the market money on the OL.
  11. Yeah, it would seem the only hope would be to be able to trade back to around #35 and still get him.
  12. Minnesota had a legitimately talented defense but for whatever reason they just didn't show up and weren't mentally invested. New England has a few really good players on defense but overall averge talent. They have excellent coaching but average talent and excellent coaching on defense against excellent talent and excellent coaching on offense will lose.
  13. It's very likely both Neal and Tak would have been 1st round picks if the Falcons didn't draft them.
  14. I'm not interested in 1st round bust reclamation projects like Joeckel and Fluker. I don't know too much about Omameh these days but I know he used to suck. Mewhort is the only one I would be kind of interested in. He had a good pedigree as a left tackle at Ohio State and while I'm pretty sure he hasn't been that good with the Colts, he's on an overall terrible line. The Falcons wouldn't need him to be a savior, just middle of the road.
  15. I remember him being completely overrated at FSU.
