  1. A lot of talent went off the board on day 2 but who are your targets for Day 3 and beyond? Here are a few of mine, in no particular order: Kenny Willekes, Edge Trevis Gipson, Edge Alton Robinson, Edge Curtis Weaver, Edge Bryce Huff, Edge Jonathan Garvin, Edge Jason Stowbridge, DL Leki Fotu, DT Rashard Lawrence, DT Khalil Davis, DT Chris Williamson, DB JR Reed, S Geno Stone, S K'von Wallace, S Cameron Brown, LB Kamal Martin, LB Akeem Davis-Gaither, LB Troy Dye, LB Ha
  2. Hello and welcome Falcons fans! My name is Lt Dan and this ladies and gentlemen is the 2020 Falcons Prospect Tracker !!!! This Thread is a 4 year project started by myself in (2015/2016) and I would like to thank the members of TAFMB for allowing me to post this each year and provide quality content. So here's how it works. We take all the information we can get from Twitter, Draft sites, Media members, Scouts, and Guys and Gals on the ground at Pro-Days to uncover the Falcons interest in players and who they have worked out to get a better understanding of how they utilize the draf
  3. Lots of trading down. Maybe my favorite overall draft. Have at it. Please don't whine that this isn't "realistic". No kidding. This is just what I would do given the opportunity. https://first-pick.com/NFL/Share.aspx?id=2b8060a5-c579-49be-8440-d942516e6787 Round 2 Pick 22 (K.C.): ONeill, Brian, OT, Pittsburgh (A-)Round 2 Pick 30 (MINN): Ragnow, Frank, C/OG, Arkansas (B+)Round 2 Pick 31 (N.E.): Miller, Kolton, OT, UCLA (B)Round 3 Pick 7 (DEN): Gesicki, Mike, TE, Penn State (A+)Round 3 Pick 14 (K.C.): Smith, Braden, OG, Auburn (A)Round 3 Pick 19 (BALT): Thomas, Ian, TE, Indiana (
  4. Calling all Falcons fans. Why do certain people/or yourself think we need a Tight End(TE). Because I'm under the belief we don't need a TE. Tight End is not a need for the Atlanta Falcons. The people trying to make this a need is mind boggling to me. So help me understand. Because Austin Hooper in a sophomore year was decent. And average around where the Veterans were averaging in the league. Considering the entire offense was lackluster. He was decent. And if the team gets back to the offense we know they can be(It doesn't have to be Shanahan offense) but back to the g
  5. I did the draft game just now, traded down a few times to gain more picks to address the Falcons needs properly, and to draft more bodies in case guys bust. What do you think of my first few picks? Round 2, Pick 14 = Harrison Phillips, DT, Stanford Round 2, Pick 32 = Braden Smith, OT/OG, Auburn Round 3, Pick 11 = Jeff Holland, DE/OLB, Auburn Round 3, Pick 13 = Anthony Averett, CB, Alabama Round 3, Pick 20 = Frank Ragnow, C/OG, Arkansas Round 4, Pick 5 = Mike Gesicki, TE, Penn State Round 4, Pick 14 = Bradley Bozeman, C, Alabama Round 4, Pick 24 =
  6. Did you ever think we would see the Falcons draft someone that drops the F bomb on National TV? LOL Dude has some passion.... hopefully he channels it in the right direction!
  7. http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/cowboys-starting-right-tackle-reportedly-decides-to-retire-after-10-seasons/ Cowboys starting right tackle reportedly decides to retire after 10 seasons Doug Free has decided to hang up his cleats The Cowboys might need to call an audible on their plans for free agency, because all of the sudden, they have a gaping hole on their offensive line that they’re going to need to fill. According to ESPN.com, starting right tackle Doug Free has decided to retire. The 10-year veteran had been a mainstay on the Cowboys’ offensive line since becoming a
  8. My 1st post here after lurking for a while. I thought post draft was a good time to defend TD. I’ll start my case with GMs that are clearly worse than TD. 1) Bucs - A kicker in the 2nd? A kicker?! And they traded UP??? This is the biggest reach since the jags took that punter in the 3rd. This board would have a meltdown of epic proportions if TD did that. 2) Rams - Desperately needed a QB, but gave up WAY too much after basically stealing high picks for years. Goff has potential, but not a sure thing. Julio was a slam dunk no question sure thing. 3) Eagles - See: Rams 4)
  9. http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000657564/article/2016-nfl-draft-9-remaining-gems-left-after-day-1 CHICAGO -- Day 1 of the 2016 NFL Draft is in the books, and now it's time to turn our attention to Day 2. There are still plenty of talented players remaining for teams in the second and third rounds on Friday, many who will become starters in the NFL. Below is a list of nine players I believe are the best remaining prospects on the board (with my original overall ranking in parenthesis): 1. Myles Jack (5), OLB, UCLA It wasn't physical ability with Jack but his
  10. FIRST ROUND (17TH OVERALL) Traded to the Bengals for their 1st round (24th overall), 3rd round (87th overall) and 5th round (161st overall) NEW FIRST ROUND PICK (24TH OVERALL) FALCONS SELECT: KARL JOSEPH, SAFETY, WEST VIRGINIA Ironically, Joseph's play style of a complete lack of respect for his own body was not the reason he missed more than half of his senior season. He injured his knee in a non-contact practice drill, putting a stop to his best year to date, where he led the FBS in interceptions (five) after four weeks. Joseph flies into the backfield and attacks recei
  11. I was going through the various top 50 prospects from various writers on NFL.com and it occurred to me that I'm not excited about any of the draft prospects. I feel like the dropoff is not great from the highest rated to the 3rd rated. Maybe this draft is the perfect time to trade back and accumulate future picks or take the chance on someone injured like Jaylon Smith for example. I was really high on him and he was one that actually stood out prior to his injury. What feeling/vibe are you getting from this years draft prospects?
  12. OK so this will be a dream ideal situation that could tremendously help outo and boost the team we all truly love and care so much for in to deep playoff and even SB conversations. I know you will all have different options but welcome all fellow Riser upers to comment. ENJOY!!!! So basically I'm not going to give you guys a long read (Actually maybe A Lil ). I'm going to get right to the point. With 5 picks in the draft, 4 being in 1st 4 rounds, I say we gamble back picks and some of next year's picks for 4 bonified picks in the 1st 2 rounds of the draft. Sounds crazy? I
  13. WR With Sanu signing a 5 year deal, I really feel like that eliminates the possibility of drafting a WR, at least in rounds 1-3. DQ already said at the combine that Hardy had made some good strides and was excited for his production to improve in year 2. Julio/Sanu/Hardy are now our 3 WRs is most packages for the next 2+ seasons. We may draft a WR late still. C Kelly and Martin were both trendy picks for the Falcons in the 2nd round but with Mack's arrival neither will be taken there. G Extremely surprised we didn't go after any guards, RG is a crying need for us. Osem
  14. So from the way FA is shaking out, it doesn't appear that we will be landing a starting SS, and given our needs at LB it also seems unlikely that we will go SS in the first round. So that leaves the big question of what we're going to do there... -- SS is very important in Quinn's scheme (IMO) - I would think this would not be left to chance. Maybe they are high on Ishmael and aren't as worried about it - I hope so. -- That leaves the questions: Are there any starting quality SS's that could be had in the 2nd or later this year? If so, who? And if not
  15. I see so many people on these boards excited for this team and while I'd love to be, the realistic part of me will not allow me to be. We have a lot of holes which I don't see being fixed by the current braintrust of this organization. In my opinion we only have one bona fide star on this team and that's Julio. I was confident in Matt Ryan before we destroyed him by bringing in Kyle ******* Shanahan. Let's breakdown all of the issues with this team that I see. Our offensive line is extremely weak in the middle and our front office has shown that they do not know how to evaluate o-linemen
  16. I've been watching some games from last season from I few guys I think that the Falcons should be interested in.I'd like to share some of my thoughts and see what everyone thinks. I watched 3 games for Jonathon Bullard against Tennesse, Alabama, and Vanderbilt, and I think he might be my favorite pick for the Falcons in terms of scheme fit. Dan Quinn coached him at Florida and he plays next to Brian Cox Jr on the line so I'm sure our coaching staff has some interest. The guy has Michael Bennett written all over him He plays all over the line, but mostly at 3 technique. I think he could st
  17. Just thought I would start a thread asking you what you are expecting to hear or see out of the Falcons players here in the off season???? Getting cabin fever already missing the regular season.... What are your expectations for the players in the off season? Should they eat pies and hamburgers or should they stay in contact with fans and work out 24/7? Are you expecting them to be quiet and not say nothing? Is that a good thing if so? Or are you expecting them to act and speak out loud with the upcoming super bowl in the media? Ya know Matt Ryan I think I heard was going to be on
  18. The logical takeaway from this draft is that we're trying to keep our window open longer and win NOW. If we would have taken Bobby Portis, he wouldn't have helped us be better this year. Same with Oubre or Grant or really anyone who was drafted after about pick #8. Nobody drafted was going to come in this year and get 8+ rebounds and 12+ points from the 4 or 5 spot. And nobody was going to come in this year and get 5+ assists and 15+ points from the 2 or 3 spot either. THj saved us a bit of money AND he can come in and have an IMMEDIATE impact. Coming from the black hole that is the NYN wh
  19. Having read the article below this is how I see our current front 7 depth chart. What stands out to me is that all of our players seem to fit for what is required to make this a success, at least on paper. For example the description of the LEO fits Beasley perfectly. What do you guys think? NT: Hageman, Soliai DT: Babineax, Jarrett LDE: Clayborn, Goodman/Jackson LEO: Beasley, Schofield/Biermann SAM: Reed, Shembo MIKE: Worrilow... WILL: Durant, Bartu Creating the Position Archetypes Having re-written an entire new scheme from scratch, Carroll had to also re-write each position o
  20. I was just looking at a cached version of the roster (www.atl.com is offline for Draft) and we only have 3 players designated as DTs. They may move players inside but Hageman looks to be the only potential. Also the offensive RT could be upgraded since most of the guards are off the board. We have a nice stable of backs and need to give them the best opportunity to hit a home run. I'm thinking we trade up for T.J. Clemmings or hope he falls. And if he doesn't, we select DT Gabe Wright whose upside is high. I was also thinking safeties like Adrian Amos and Derron Smith but I believe they'll be
  21. just 2 rounds and 2 picks, but it tells me something, something I hate to admit - Coach Dan Quinn has seen things in people, positive things in players already on the roster. Many of us fans, you and me, were thinking about slightly different draft priorities. Coach sees good in players (and BAD). Some of us were surprised by news of cuts or people released, news coming near the draft. Must be that those players who were already on the roster WERE NOT ready to show the speed and energy in these recent practices (OTAs or voluntary?) the reason I say "hate to admit" is because I would have t
  22. It's day 2 and the best chance for value is here. There are a lot of quality players still on the board but the most interesting is Randy Gregory. Simple poll question...if he is still there when we pick do we take him. I will say up front, that I am not a fan. Showing up to the combine and positive testing pushed him to "not serious" for me and not worth picking up but I would not be mad if we did. What does TAFT think?
  23. Adam Schefter ‏@AdamSchefter 38s38 seconds ago Dion Jordan, 3rd pick in 2013, is being suspended for 2015 season for another substance abuse policy violation, league sources told ESPN. Just goes to show you that being popped IS an important issue for teams.
  24. I'm just not sold on the guy. I live up in BIG TEN country and saw a few Minnesota games this year. But Williams just didn't stand out to me. Maybe I'm missing something, but I just don't see it. I'd be disappointed if they took him in the second round, especially over guys like Perryman, Mckinney, Dorset, Stephone Anthony, Ogbuehi, Tomlinson, and Demarious Randall. Anybody else think more of him?
  25. I am not too knowledgeable about the game or the team, but still I am a fan. Here in JAPAN I do a little gambling, but generally I know nothing about gambling on football. I have heard this expression related to gambling on sports - "over, under" Has something to do with something being close to a 50/50 chance of happening. This to me is more fun than a mock draft. Tell me I am wrong, but I say there is a near 50 percent chance that the Falcons trade UP on draft day. The only motivation would be to please fans that want whomever that monster pass rusher may be. Since that would be T
