  1. They will definitely be there at our pick and having two explosive elite LB’s would do wonders for our 2nd Level. We already resigned Allen Bailey and I feel like we have a good bit of money invested on the first level and I think we have a good bit of young talent on the 2nd so how about Kenneth Murray? I know he’ll be there at 16...
  2. Jonathan Taylor would be nice for this offense. We have needed to control the clock for the longest but you can not do that with an RB. Matt Ryan is at his best with play action so I think it’s time for a real feature back.
  3. Mock Draft 1.0 Cut Devonta Freeman HB James Carpenter OG Luke Stocker TE Ty Sambraillo OL Free Agency Robert Quinn DE Emmanuel Sanders WR Kevin Johnson CB Re-sign Adrian Clayborn DE Steven Means DE Tyler Davison NT Blidi Wreh-Wilson CB This is using the SI example of trading back to the 21st pick due to PHI wanting a WR1 desperately. Picking up an additional 2nd from em. Also yes I think picking up Sanders could be a significant upgrade at WR and help propel our offense. Kevin Johnson still has potential and could benefit from our scheme if Tru
  4. I feel when it comes to the draft this year this is the most separated the board has ever been. Normally the majority is in board with a certain position being picked in the first but maybe two different prospects are liked. This year there's people who want DT people who want DE. Then you have a Group for RT and CB and some who even want a LB. There is such vast opinions that different which is so unlike any other draft I've seen since I joined this board hack in 2004. I think with all this different thoughts that it proves that this draft is just gonna he crazy because there's no obvious
  5. When we’ve talked defensive player options in regards to the NFL draft, everyone has brought up defensive tackle in the first round. To me, there are only 2 DT’s that could make an immediate impact on our defense day 1. Quinnen Williams Ed Oliver Both will be gone by the time it gets to #14. Which leaves us with 3 options. Reach for a defensive lineman (Yes, all other defensive linemen options will be a reach in the first round), take an offensive lineman, or trade down. I will definitely be fine with the latter two ONLY if the front office makes it up to us by picking up this p
  6. Well, this should be fun: https://www.ajc.com/sports/michael-vick-announce-falcons-second-round-nfl-draft-pick/fRaoTN5FE34sp7BiVNW3kM/ Former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick will announce the team’s second round 2018 NFL Draft pick, the NFL announced Wednesday. Vick, the 2001 NFL Draft’s No. 1 overall pick out of Virginia Tech, played for the Falcons for six seasons from 2001-2006 and racked up 22,464 passing yards and 133 passing touchdowns as well as 6,109 rushing yards and 36 touchdowns in his 13 seasons in the League. After announcing his retirement in February
  7. NFL reportedly won't fine Takkarist McKinley for F-bomb on TV during draft The newest Falcons defender won't be fined for swearing on television The 2017 NFL Draft got pretty wild on Thursday night, with multiple trades for quarterbacks going down and a slew of surprise picks coming across. But nothing was crazier, maybe, than the selection of Takkarist McKinley by the Falcons. Not because "Takk" was a surprise there -- he was a great pick by the Falcons, earning an A from Pete Prisco for the selection . It was a surprise because McKinley got on stage with a framed portrait of hi
  8. Is there a bar/restaurant that anyone has discussed getting together for the first round of the draft Thursday night? I've gone/helped organize these in the past and they're very fun and a great way to help build AFMB camaraderie. If not, let's talk locations and I'll see if I can call and get space set aside for us once we have a headcount. I'll throw the BWW At Kennsaw or Cumberland or the Taco Mac off Cobb Pkwy near Vinings as potential spots.
  9. Version 1: Needs Based/Better LB value 1st Round, 17th Overall: Andrew Billings, NT, Baylor Rationale: Billings shores up an unsure position at NT that was vacated by Paul Soliai leaving. With Beasley, Clayborn and Shelby manning the DE spots - we have a powerhorse Aaron Donald type presence in the middle to boost the production of our DEs and Hageman/Babs/Jarrett. This gives us superior DT depth and also makes Tyson Jackson expendable as a late cap-saving cut. I take Billings here over Lee/Floyd because there's better value at LB in future rounds. LB class is very deep, DT draf
  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 know a lot of people have done full mocks and I thank them for their time. Personally, I find that only the first pick is the only one that is even remotely predictable. With that said, I'd love to know everyone's pick list (with priority) for #17. Mine is as follows: Lawson (DE) Dodd (DE) Jack (LB) Lee (LB) Ogbah (DE) Floyd (LB) I figure at least one of those 6 will be there at 17 and I'd have no serious problem with any of these guys (Floyd needs to stay above 240 imo).
  12. I find this kid to be super raw but also an altheltic freak. For some weird reason, I believe in our staff's ability to coach up and develop talent, which we haven't done in years. If we have to trade down, I won't have a heart attack with someone like this kid being on the board late in the first. I had hoped he'd be there in the 2nd to give us added flexibility in the first, but it looks like Mike Tomlin is already looking at him as an OLB in the first. Thoughts? Defensive end Danielle Hunter (6-5 1/4, 251) had a 36 1/2-inch vertical jump and 10-foot-10 broad jump. He did the 20-yard short
  13. I keep looking into this kid and he's not going to make it to round 3. As we know, linemen have been the jewels of the draft for some time now; thus OG and OTs are going to fly off the board in the first two rounds. I think this kid is worth the risk given his measureables. He's extremely athletic, fast (4.98 40ty), versitile (Both OGs,C,RT) and strong as a bull (30 Reps 225). People complain he's from division 3 but he held his own in the senior bowl. I think he fits what we need to improve our oline and run game. To sit back and wait until round 3 because the scouts say we should would be th
  14. The WRs, DEs and DTs "are what we thought they were" as far as the known candidates are concerned. If we thought TE was weak this year, the LBs just joined them (Not counting DEs playing OLB). If you were the GM, what players would make you stay at pick 8 and which ones would you trade and acquire extra picks for if the "Stay At 8" players are gone? Stay At 8: 1. Leonard Williams 2. Vic Beasley 3. Dante Fowler Jr. 4. Randy Gregory 5. Kevin White 6. Amari Cooper Or Entertain Trade-bait: 1. Eli Harold 2. Bud Dupree 3. Landin Collins 4. Arik Armstead 5. Brandon Scherff
