I don't think he dropped anything thrown his way and his blocking skills were actually pretty good.Yup, the Milner pick was a head scratcher at the time but to his credit, he was really coming on for us when he got hurt. I was surprised by how well he acclimated to the NFL. He appears to have been a good pick for us at #133, which is something I never expected to type. Laurent Robinson and him were the two picks that were crucified on this board, but each player very well as a rookie. To a larger point, the entirety of this thread is criticizing the Falcons for not drafting a kicker who went in the sixth round. The Falcons could have drafted him with their fifth round pick. Instead, they turned that selection into Doug Datish, David Irons and Daren Stone. I'd rather have the three football players than the kicker.Ahh, finally someone with some sense. It's trade like that one that will get us to be a good team, with a lot of depth, sooner rather than later.yeah,A LOT of sense right there...... not can Datish,Irons, or Stone kick FG's?We would have beaten Jacksonville if we had a FG kicker. Datish got hurt in training camp, Irons has been hurt, and played special teams, did Stone EVEN play at all? I'd rather have the kicker.We got 3 players for ONE. Yeah, we shouldn't have taken Datish since we knew he would get injured :Wow: Yes, Stone played. He played very well on ST. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
