jamnesiac34 Posted March 3, 2008 Share Posted March 3, 2008 It's interesting how we all have our opinions on who the Falcons will draft with the #3 pick and now that Free Agency has begun it kind of throws a wrench in our ideas. I was thinking for sure Jake Long would be the pick but I really think there's a 2% chance that he makes it past St. Louis. So it all depends on who the Dolphins take with the #1 pick now. If they take Matt Ryan, don't the Falcons have to take Chris Long? If so, what happens with Anderson? Move him to DT? Or make him a backup DE and rotate them? The Giants proved that you can't have too many good DE's on your team. But what if the Dolphins take Chris Long #1 overall? Jake Long is still going to St. Louis so that leaves us having to choose between, in my opinion, Sedrick Ellis, Glenn Dorsey, Ryan Clady, Vernon Gholston, and Matt Ryan. Personally, I take Gholston or Ellis and don't look back. The Falcons passed on an elite athlete last year when they passed on Patrick Willis and I hope they don't make the same mistake this year. Dorsey would be nice but he's got the nagging injury concerns. Clady would be a great addition to the offensive line but can you justify taking him at #3? Ellis would be a solid pick too. He's definitely motivated and is known as a film buff. Then there's Matt Ryan. The Falcons need a QB worse than any other position but is he worth the #3 pick? Many on this board think he's not. So what do the Falcons do? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
