Today i was told... Watch out for Aldon Smith... If he has another 10+sack season (like he is on pace of doing) ... I was told scouts think he will enter the draft... I was told with Robert Quinn missing allot of games (maybe even the year) , Rom being hurt , and Adrian Clayborn is having a good year despite the sacks but he have off the field issues.... Aldon could be the best pure DE

I think this D is really starting to come together now, and an elite edge rusher to add to that and grown with them could turn this into one of the best D's in the NFL over the next 5-6 years or so. So many young playmakers.

I've never seen this much talent (young talent) on a falcons team... Sidbury is a guy that we all think has that playmaker edge rusher ability and the coaching staff is trying to find away to get him on the field.... We have so much talent now.... TD is looking brilliant.

Well, he's hit or miss in the 1st round(Baker, Jerry vs Ryan, Weatherspoon), but almost all his other picks are golden.

Guys he gets BUSTED for taking look like some of the best value players drafted-H. Douglass, Decoud, C. Owens, C. Peters(OMG, people questioning that pick look ********, Peters is a good starter in the NFL), Beirmann, the kansas wr before he got hurt...

I'd give anything to have the Baker and Jerry picks back though. Those could haunt us, down the road.

Jerry and Baker is not a bust.... or miss... Jerry is in his 1st year basically and baker is not a bust or miss... He may not be the best OT but he is not a bust... I think He could be a really good RT... They guy is really good at run blocking and is a good pass blocker... He just struggle against speed rushers.

You are jumping the gun on Baker and especially Jerry.

The only miss i see as of now is Chevis Jackson in the 3rd round.

It's hard for me to get on a guy for a 3rd rounder who still played in the league for several seasons. It happens.

We'll agree to disagree on Jerry. I continue to see nothing, not even flashes. The best test of whether a dlineman has it is just to watch them get off the snap, and most importantly, what happens when they make contact with an olineman. Jerry gets crumpled, tossed, or washed when he makes contact. I have yet to see him overpower, with either strength or quickness, the guy in front of him. I saw that season 1 from Babs, we saw it from Coleman, from Jackson....we see it from Peters, in HIS rookie year. I see it more from Vance Walker than from Jerry. I see it from Jam Anderson more than Jerry. Corey Peters: 3rd round rookie. P. Jerry- 1st round 2nd year. One is starting and looks good, the other is getting spot snaps and looks...like nothing. His biggest impact was an encroachment penalty.

Sam Baker is a substantially better player than Jerry. I can accept that reasoanble minds can differ on Baker. He's not who you want at LT, but he could be a solid RT, I agree.

Against the Dolphins last year, Jerry was probably the quickest off the snap of all our DLine including Babs and Abraham. I doubt we will see a lot from him until later in the year, maybe next year, when his knee is fully better.

Yea in a interview coach smith said right now Peria and the staff thinks he feel best in our pass rushing packages... TD said Peria is getting around 15-20 snaps a game right now but later on in the year (when he feels more comfortable) Peria will get 25-30 snaps a game (starter number of snaps)....

Some ppl dont get that it just takes time man... Ive seen some flashes from Peria (a tackle for loss and contributed to a tackle for loss with his penetration vs the Cards) ... PPl just need to give the man time to get right (atleast to around or after the bye) ... I have no doubt that Peria will be a big part of our team... We just need to give the man time... I remember when the fans was saying William Moore was a waste of pick.... Just to quick to react.

Could you tell what times those TFL's occured at in those games? I remember the one where he contributed to the TFL, but not where he actually had a TFL.

DTs can play into their mid 30s though. They aren't like DE's or RBs.

Undersized penetrating DT's play that long in good form? There's no power to Jerry's game, at least from what I've seen in the NFL. I have no idea where it went. He crushed the pocket in college, and bullied guys in the run game. HOpefully he figures out how to play with some sand in his pants again.

see Rod Coleman.

it doesn't always translate from college to pro. There is still hope for him.

I saw Rod Coleman. Last year as an impact player was 2005-2006, when he was 29. As a 30 year old, his sack total dropped by nearly 50%, and the next year, 31, was his last in the league. Is there another example? Without having to bring up a hall of famer like Warren Sapp?

DT is the most punishing position on the field after Rb, and they seem to lose quickness and burst a lot faster than they lose power/strength.

Thats becuase the man had a significant injury off the field... Listen to Coach Smith talk about Peria... He is not worried at all... He said we are using Peria on pass rushing downs right now (easing him in) ... By mid-year... He will play around 30 snaps (starter snaps) ..

Just give the man time.
