Solid Draft! Long, Detailed, & Realistic with 1.5 FULL Rounds!


Recommended Posts

:::: The Atlanta Falcon s 2008 Off-Season ::::

::Resignings::

LOLB Michael Boley

Reasoning: He was arguably our best defensive player last year, he is young, and he never quits.

ROLB Demorrio Williams

Reasoning: Brooking is aging and Demorrio has a knack for making plays. Though he is undersized (cough Singletary, Zach Thomas, *cough*) he is athletic and has a head of steam that Coach Mike Smith will be very attracted to. He led our team in tackles some years ago.

S Chris Crocker

Reasoning: He has only got better since his first year. A huge hitter and who is improving in coverage, Crocker may actually become a great Strong Safety when Milloy is spent.

OL Tyson Clabo

Reasoning: A young and talented lineman. He has shown his value by doing well at all 3 positions we have tried him at. He is a true competitor.

QB Chris Redman

Reasoning: The only QB to make our team look NFL worthy this year. He will hopefully sign on and be our 2 guy.

DE Chauncey Davis

Reasoning: Although he is not starter quality, he provides a good rush when given the chance, and quite possibly would have faired better than Anderson this year at LE. He will continue to be good depth, or may work his way into the starting line-up. He will come cheap.

K Morten Anderson

Reasoning: When he is no longer bloody accurate from inside the 35, let's cut him. But as long as he is automatic, why not use up everything he has in the tank while letting a young kicker learn under the all-time leading scorer.

TE Dwayne Blakely

Reasoning: Blakely makes big catches down field and is a serviceable blocker as well. He could be solid for us if Milner doesn t progress.

::Released or Not Retained::

HB Warrick Dunn

Reasoning: Age, lack of size, declining skills, and unwillingness to accept a declining role will spell doom for Dunn's days as a Falcon. TO BLANK: He is NOT the power runner we need, no matter how great he is in the community.

LT Wayne Gandy

Reasoning: Age, immobility, and recent injury give Gandy a good chance of being cut. Although he was a team captain...

RG Kynan Forney

Reasoning: A player who once showed promise, has become a weak point. He is being paid too much to be a back-up.

CB Lewis Sanders

Reasoning: Old and no longer of use.

QB Joey Harrington

Reasoning: A weak arm and lack of downfield vision don't help Harrington's chances with our team. Although his passion and likeability may win the coaches for a short time as they did me.

QB Byron Leftwich

Reasoning: Slow mechanics and poor durability spell a no for this once heralded QB.

DT Rod Coleman

Reasoning: Similar to Keith Brooking's position, Coleman is a former great with declining skills, but there is not too much love attached to the recently injured DT. With a similar feel to the releasing of Kerney, Coleman will get the axe after two sub par, high paid seasons.

TE Alge Crumpler

Reasoning: His better days were behind him, and he would have been receiving the 2nd highest salary among all NFL tight ends next year. Yikes.

:: Possibly Restructured: But For Now Cut::

LB Keith Brooking

Reasoning: A huge salary, age, and declining skills tell me that he should be outright cut, but a fan favorite like Brooking will be given a chance to retire playing for fans that remember what he was. I say he gets cut.

WR Joe Horn

Reasoning: He was huge. Just not as a receiver. I believe he is a large part of why Roddy saw so much success. He showed Roddy how to prepare. That's what Horn said he would do, which tells me that he may be willing to be the team guy and rework his contract, with a possible Receivers Coach future deal in mind.

:: Free Agent Signings ::

WR Bryant Johnson UFA out of Arizona

Reasoning: Overshadowed by stars Boldin and Fitzgerald, Johnson should out perform all of our receivers except for Roddy and possible Laurent. He would be a solid addition to our WR core. Roddy, him, and Laurent would be a great 1-2-3 combo.

OL Maurice Williams UFA out of Jacksonville

Reasoning: The front office hopes to get some good play out of the versatile lineman.

KR/CB B.J. Sams UFA out of Baltimore

Reasoning: If you remember what he did to us in our game against the Ravens, you know why he is special. He s a relentless return man, who should come relatively cheap because of injury questions.

RG Rex Hadnot UFA out of Miami

Reasoning: He is a versatile veteran who will be especially solid for us as a reserve and at right guard.

CB Fernando Bryant UFA out of Detroit

Reasoning: A veteran corner to play our nickel back until we develop Irons well enough.

DE Jevon Kearse UFA out of Philadelphia

Reasoning: We take a big chance, but we see how he performs as a reserve for John Abraham. Together, they might keep each other healthy and fresher. We sign him for very cheap.

HB DeShaun Foster, UFA, out of Carolina

Reasoning: We give the talented, but often injured power back a second chance, which may rejuvenate him.

:: The 2008 NFL Draft ::

17- Minnesota selects Reggie Smith, CB/S, out of Oklahoma

Reasoning: They cut Dwight Smith& enter another Smith.

18- Houston selects Derrick Harvey, DE, out of Florida

19- Philadelphia selects Sam Baker, LT, out of USC

20- Tampa Bay selects Brian Brohm, QB, out of Louisville

Reasoning: Gruden gets a great quarterback prospect for the post Garcia-era, even though he may prefer the older ones.

21- Washington selects Kenny Philips, S, out of Miami

Reasoning: A tragedy leads Washington to try and help the pain, with a fellow prospect from the U.

22- Dallas selects DeSean Jackson, WR/KR, out of California

Reasoning: With Owens and Glenn, the Cowboys need depth, they get exceptional depth and an immediate contribution in the return game with this pick.

23- Pittsburg selects Jeff Otah, RT, out of Pittsburg

24- Tennesee selects Limas Sweed, WR, out of Texas

30- Green Bay selects Aqib Talib, CB, out of Kansas

Reasoning: This is a great situation for him, because he won't be forced into the lineup behind Harris and Woodson, but both will need replacing soon.

31- New York (Giants) selects Dan Connor, OLB, out of Penn St.

Reasoning: With the retirement of Strahan, the Giants will need an OLB so Kiwanuka can go back to his natural position.

:Round Two (Fight! Just my own lame humor& ):

Reasoning: They missed out on Vernon Gholston, but get a poor man s version here.

Reasoning: Carolina needs a better Playmaker and Decision Maker than Deke Cooper.

44- Chicago selects Anthony Collins, OT, out of Kansas

Reasoning: They have two old tackles, so they take two great young ones this year.

45- Detroit selects Chris Johnson, RB, out of East Carolina

Reasoning: The Barry Sanders look-alike will hopefully bring some talent to a position that has been lacking in it for some time.

46- Cincinnati selects Lawrence Jackson, DE, out of USC

Reasoning: The Bengals had 22 sacks all of last year& .

47- Minnesota selects Devin Thomas, WR, out of Michigan State

Reasoning: Minnesota realizes where they are weakest, they really want to fix that.

::**ATLANTA s 4th PICK**::

:Trade:

Atlanta trades the 48th pick in the 2008 Draft

Green Bay trades the rights to DT Corey Williams

Reasoning: Mike Smith wants more talent on the defensive line and accesses that Williams here, is better value than selecting a defensive lineman high and missing out on Jake Long. Green Bay has a deep Defensive Line and can afford to let Williams go. Williams is one of the top pass-rushing Defensive Tackles in the NFL and he is only 27 years old. This is similar to the Rod Coleman signing. He will elevate the game of DE Jamaal Anderson.

::The Rest of Atlanta's Draft::

3-066) Joe Flacco, QB, out of Deleware

Reasoning: The Atlanta Falcons new quarterback, Joe Flacco. He has very impressive tools such as speed (4.76 in the 40), Size (6-6 and 230), and a Big Arm. Bill Musgrave will have to work on his accuracy but he may end up being a great one.

3-099) Jonathon Goff, MLB, out of Vanderbilt

Reasoning: Fastest interior lineman, and my pick for future Atlanta middle linebacker for a long while.

4-105) Frank Okam, DT, out of Texas

Reasoning: An underachieving defensive tackle who can flat out mow over offensive lineman! Great Value Here.

5-138) Cory Boyd, RB, out South Carolina

Reasoning: TD finds great running back talent in the later rounds. HE IS VERY UNDERATED. A GEM. The strongest back at the combine (25 reps), quick (4.51, had a 4.47 time), tremendous receiver at South Carolina (35 receptions for 406), and he Runs PEOPLE OVER. Youtube him people. He will compliment Norwood beautifully.

6-177) Brandon Coutu, K, out of Georgia

Reasoning: A dominating performance in a skills competition gives him the nod to be our future kicker.

6-197) Jayson Foster, KR/PR, out of Georgia Southern

Reasoning: Everybody wants their own Hester& We can only hope.

7-220) Jamal Lewis, SS, Georgia Tech

Reasoning: A player with a lot of promise. A local kid. Why not?

QB Redman, Flacco, Shockley

RB Boyd, Norwood, Foster, Snelling

FB Mughelli, McIntyre

WR White, Johnson, Robinson, Jenkins, Jennings, Foster

TE Blakely, Milner

LS Schneck

:: 2009 Outlook::

In Flacco Atlanta has a very talented & young prospect to compete with Shockley for the starting job.

In Boyd, Atlanta has a new, powerful runner to compliment Norwood.

In Johnson Atlanta gained a former round one wide receiver from Arizona two be our solid number two option.

In Hadnot, M Williams, Long, and Rachal Atlanta has 2 new and extremely talented offensive lineman to develop into the starters as the veterans get the last bit of good play out (Hadnot and Maurice.)

In Okam and Williams, Atlanta gained a proven run stopper from Texas, who will only get better and a young, talented veteran pass rusher to shine and help Anderson develop.

In Kearse Atlanta has a solid rusher to spell Abe, who can spell him well if injured or tired. They may keep eachother healthy and become a deadly combo for 2-3 years.

In Goff Atlanta got one of the best 4-3 middle linebacker prospects who will grow on the fans.

In Bryant Atlanta has a proven corner who is valuable as a nickel.

In Coutu Atlanta got a talented kicker to kick the long ones while Mort enjoys his last days as an NFL kicker.

In Sams and Foster Atlanta got a proven punt returner who will hopefully return to form after an injury and a dynamic Hesterlike freak who will hopefully meet his potential.

::What We Have In Our Future?::

A Competitive Football Team!

how can it be so much work when you put out a new one every day?

i understand that these all take a long time to finish, but they would be much better overall if you spent more time A. reading about the prospects and their strengths (for instance carl nicks will not be playing LT at the next level imo, especially not right away) and what positions they project to and B. making sure they fit in with all the teams needs. and your falcons mock drafts have all been very similar.

i think it would be more beneficial for you to just edit these more instead of just typing them up and throwing them on here, because (even though it is just my opinion) i see some picks that i certainly would not have made and therefore disagree with. whether it is the 2 round mock or the falcons mock.

Well I have to go through and bold and italicize.. then I make all of the changes.. Which there are usually a lot.. Then I double check.. Takes some time.. Well your opinion is all well and good. But many experts do see Nicks being a dominating Left Tackle at the next level. My drafts are have as much bearing as anyone elses and many think they are rather close to being the way things might go. Ofcourse i don't feel this is what will happen. It's fine that you would not have made a selection that i made or if you choose to disagree with them, because i made this mock to show what i feel. Not what i think would make you happy, but what would make our team better in the future. You opinion and my opinion are equal, and we don't have to agree. I spit them out often because some people like reading them. If you don't like them, then don't like them and go on your way....

I spit them out often because some people like reading them. If you don't like them, then don't like them and go on your way....

it doesnt look like you changed very many 1st round pick selections from the draft you made a whole 24 hours ago. though i did not read it after i didnt recognize any differences near the beginning anyways, but as i glanced at the selections the majority seemed to be unchanged. that is what warranted my comment.

I don't care what the experts think, i can make my own analysis. what i think is that he has all the tools to be an absolutely dominant RT, but could be a good LT with time. he is raw and i think the transition would be vastly easier as far as immediate production in the NFL if we played him at RT versus LT. Im sure he could play LT and be a dominant run blocker, but I would rather have a very good pass protector at LT than a dominant, man-handling blocker. i think most people would agree with that. if you can get both though, then that is the best of both worlds (i think thats what we could have in Jake Long, after i gave myself a bit of a reality check).

I dont remember saying that your mock drafts had less weight than anyone elses or even mine for that matter. what i DID say was that i think your mocks would be substantially better if you spent more time editing them. As I said before, there are picks that i disagree with quite a bit, and some that I think you could/should change if you read up on what the teams biggest needs were. But that is just my opinion. In any event, I realize you didnt make the draft (or the drafts) to make me happy. But the only reason I replied to any of them in the first place was that i thought the effort you put in (at least to the first one) warranted a reply that constituted similar effort. I only question some of your picks to try and help you improve your drafts and to challenge you to make them better.

All I can say is read up on the team needs and maybe take a deep breath and wait 48 hours before your next one. People might like reading them but the more you post them (especially if they remain as similar as they have the last couple days) the less interesting they will be, especially 3 days in a row. I had that problem too man, so its not like im talking out of my a**. it just takes patience.

Keep doing what you are doing Falconblood. I enjoy reading them. And after reading some of Mr. Offseasons posts, I get the feeling that he fancys himself as the Draft guru.(which he isn't by a long shot)

Don't let anyone on this board sway you from doing what you enjoy doing and if its posting an updated mock everyday, then do so.

I feel that I am just as good at mock drafts as you, "Mr Offseason", and you obviously didn't read my mock because theirs 20+ Changes, but next time you go off on someone because you feel they shouldn't post good mocks too often (as you hinted you've done before), remember that there's a lot of people who could care less what you think if it's not constructive. Which it wasn't. You can question my picks. But I have others with opinions that weigh more heavily for me, so your wasting your time. I got all of our team needs filled fool. DT, OL, MLB, QB, RB, etc. Take a hike.

if you want to make it personal, go ahead. thats not what im about. if you have a problem with some constructive criticism that is not my problem. if you post mocks because you want people to "ooh" and "aah" at them then that is what you will do. i thought you posted them to get other peoples thoughts on your selections, and possibly give you advice. you cant know everything, and there are a lot of people on this board that live in different cities that know a lot more about teams (such as the dolphins or the browns, i have gotten a lot of advice from people on here regarding their needs) than i would from just trying to read about them. i can say i am the same way about the vikings and the packers, living in minnesota.

i dont "fancy myself the draft guru". i just decided that instead of telling falconblood that it was great, that i would offer him some criticism to help make it better. but evidently it was already so good that i should have never thought of such a thing.

i didnt intend to turn this into an argument falconblood, and i think taking some constructive criticism regarding your mock is a good thing, not a bad thing. you wont make the same mistake twice and you will have learned something. asking questions about selections youve made instead of writing them up and assuming they are correct is a good idea, and im not saying that is all you have done. i just thought id try and critique your draft instead of telling you it was perfect and what an amazing job it was. those comments have never really been of interest to me, and i didnt know if they would be to you either. i would much rather have discussions regarding a selection someone either A. disagreed with or B. wondered why i made or C. didnt think would happen, regarding an opposing teams need that i may not have known about. but if all you want is me to make a cliche post about what an amazing job it was, then ill try to do better next time.

I'm probably coming late on this, and I'm fairly new (well not that new I just don't post frequently), but I've read alot of Mr. Offseason's posts and they tend to be pretty informative, and he's one of the minority of people on this board who appears to be respectful and doesn't insult people.

Looks like he's just offering some constructive criticism. JMO :cool:

thanks for the props ATLBrave, but some of this was kind of stupid on my part. i havent slept for more than about 5 hours a night in the last week, so i was on a pretty short fuse if you get my drift. ive been super busy with schoolwork (which drives me nuts because as a 2nd semester senior i dont feel like doing jack sh** when it comes to school). its not really an excuse for being a jerk to you though falconblood, so i just wanted to apologize. im still very short on sleep, and im going to go to bed very soon, but im awake enough to know that i was being a jerk, and thats not cool.

i do that every once and a while though, but i still shouldnt have gone off on you. sorry about that. i hope we can get past this, but it sounds like you are already doin alright anyways. it sounds like we were both in bad moods.

Flacco will go in the 2nd round. In the area your picking a QB were are probally looking at Booty or Johnson.

Okam was a solid 2nd round choice last time I saw. I don't see him Falling that far.

I would much rather keep our pick than trade them. This will work out the same way with probally less money spent.

Draft Dorsey instead of Long and the pick that was traded use to take Anthony Collins or possibly Nicks.

Just my opinion, decent job with a lot of effort.
