  1. This isn't what I would have done, but there's a very clear strategy to it. The Falcons have quality skill positions on O and D, and subpar lines. They've invested multiple first round picks in the DL lately. They've wanted to draft OL early, but have commented on how difficult it is to project OL, and how it takes awhile for them to transition to the pro game. They decided they needed to take the steps to make a better OL now. Without the FA money to "buy" great guys, they put a development plan in place. They'd go out and get 2 to 3 OL who should be current upgrades and sign them to short contracts. They'd then be able to get early OL and not have to throw them to the wolves. They can slot them in as they're ready and have an upgraded OL throughout. This is the type of thing that happens when a new coach comes in...hire stopgap FA's and double up in the draft. They decided it was time to remake the OL as if they were starting new after last year's debacle. Throughout his tenure, Ryan has shown if you give him time, he'll shred you. And just as clearly, last year we showed we couldn't pick up a 3rd and 1 to save our lives. So this was the plan it seems. Personally I would have doubled up on DL and taken one OL. But at least you have to say this...the Falcons dedicated themselves to fixing the OL now and over the long haul.
