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 good offense we remember in the Matt Ryan years. Then Austin Hooper will be fine. But if you feel different, let me know. So I can see where people are coming from with this need at TE. That nobody see but fans.
Hey guys just updating the 2013 Mock Draft (Planned to do it tomorrow but I have surgery I forgot about and I have other stuff. 1st Round, 28th Overall Pick. Kawann Short, DT, Purdue. 6'3 310 LBs. I really like Kawann Short as a prospect, he's a monster on the interior of the Purdue line. I thought about making John Banks the pick here, but I think we'll get Brent resigned to a multi-year deal. The only real knock I have on Short is that he isn't very consistent in terms of his play, when he's on he dominates nearly anyone he's lined up against, but when he goes cold he disappears at times. Either way Jerry hasn't really done much, Corey Peters is a FA in 2014, and Babs is getting up there in age. We need to go ahead and add some depth here. 2nd Round, 59th Overall Pick. Shayne Skov, LB, Stanford. 6'3 243 LBs. I really like Skov as a prospect he looks like a mix of Karlos Dansby and Weatherspoon, but he has the versatility to play all LBs spots in both the 3-4 and 4-3. Skov had 62 tackles as a freshman playing ILB for Stanford. He really broke out his sophomore year when he recorded 82 tackles, 7.5 sacks, and 5 Passes Defended. He was off to a blistering start his junior year before a knee injury ended his season in week 3. Before that injury Skov had compiled 19 tackles, 5 TFL, 1.5 Sacks, and 1 PD. Skov is an excellent blitzer he's just to quick for most interior lineman and he uses his hands well. Overall he takes very good angles but he could polish up his tackling technique. He's very good in coverage. Seems to be high character, had one arrest for a DUI, but from interviews he seems very well spoken. 3rd Round, 92nd Overall Pick. Levine Toilolo, TE, Stanford. 6'8 265 LBs.Toilolo is a big and athletic TE from Stanford, he spend time battling with fellow draft prospect Zach Ertz for time behind Coby Fleener last year at Stanford. He seemed to be Andrew Luck's go to guy in the redzone as he recorded 6 TDs on 25 catches. Toilolo's athleticism and size should make him an immediate contributor but he'll need some polishing before he reaches his full potential. 4th Round.123rd Overall Pick. Cameron Marshall, RB, ASU. 5'11 223 LBs. Cameron Marshall is an underrated back out of Arizona State University. Marshall has the size and durability to be a 3 down back in the NFL, he has better movement and cutting skills compared to other big backs. While he doesn't have great straight line speed he possesses very good burst from the LoS. He needs to work on his pass protection, but overall he's a very solid prospect that could go from rounds 4-6 much like Robert Turbin last year. 5th Round, 156th Overall Pick. Roy Roundtree, WR, Michigan. 6'1 176 LBs. The Falcons need to add WR dpeth and Roy Roundtree does that plus provides a home run threat. Roundtree is very fast and agile, he put up 966 yards in 2010. Although his production tipped a ton last year to only 355 yards, Roundtree has never played with a real passing quarterback. Instead he's had to work with Denard Robinson and has performed well during his time there. He needs to add some weight to his frame, but he could be a potential steal. 6th Round, 189th Overall Pick. Ryan Nassib, QB, Syracuse. 6'2 230 LBs. Nassib is quarterback from Syracuse, even though he is a bit smaller he still shows good ability to see over the line. He lead Syracuse to a big upset win in which he looked like a 1st round QB after throwing for 230 yards and 4 Touchdowns with a 75% completion percentage. Nassib has good physical tools and would serve well as a backup in the NFL while he develops. 7th Round, 220th Overall Pick. Dustin Hopkins, K, FSU. Matt Bryant is long in the tooth, and he may want to retire to spend time with his family after this year or like Elam his play could dramatically fall off. Hopkins is an accurate kicker with a huge leg from Florida State he should serve well to lock down the K position for the next 15-20 years.
