Falcons 2012 Draft Board


Recommended Posts

The NFL draft is in 2 weeks and I know everyone is wondering who the next player to join the Falcons will be. Everyone has been posting their mock drafts, this is how I do my drafts. This is what I believe the Falcons draft board looks like this year. From this board I will make my draft picks for the 2012 season. You can view my mock Draft Board and compare your draft picks to where I ranked mines. I will make my draft selections sometime next week before the NFL draft.

Why would they go and get a 5'8, 194lb RB?

If you don't think LaMichael James is on the Falcons draft board. You don't know the Falcons. James is the most explosive RB in the draft. IMO the best back in the draft after Richardson. 5'8" 194 is good for a RB. Warrick Dunn 5'8" 187lbs, MJD 5'7" 208lbs, LT 5'10" 210lbs, Jamal Charles 5'9" 198lbs, Chris Johnson 5'10" 191lbs, LeSean McCoy 5'10" 206lbs, our own Micheal Turner 5'10" 244lbs and JaQuizz Rodgers 5'6" 193lbs. He is same height as most of the NFL RBs and he'll gain weight once NFL trainers get a hold of him.

If we go RB in the 2nd, I'd prefer Chris Polk. I really think he'll excel in the NFL.

His upright running style scares me...he has a Matt Forte ceiling but a Chris Brown floor.

fyi...Chris Brown the former Titans running back not the woman-beating R&B singer.

I think Falcons are sticking by their word and want to get more explosive. LaMichael James is exactly that, while Polk is more of an inside runner and not as explosive. He's a nice player and he is on my draft board. I think we look, but do we pull the trigger. This is becoming a passing league

Last year was explosive, this year is girth.

James is a good fit for a team that needs an outside running threat, like us, but I don't think you can make a decision like that, given the lack of premium picks in the 2011/2012 drafts. This is our next biggest pick, outside of Julio, in consecutive drafts. It needs to be more impactful and relevant.

I'm not sure draft boards look like that. M Smith said the position coaches each develop a vertical list and then he, the Coordinators and TD develop the hortizontal list.

These are mixed vertical lists for each round.

But what do I know --just repeating Smith

I'm pretty sure they don't look like this either. But it can't be that far off. My list is based on the round ,when we pick, what players other teams may pick, then what holes we need to fill. Then I listed the players that we could pick from to fill those holes. On draft day I believe these will be the players we will be looking at.

Never said who I would select, just a list of players that will be available to us at #55 that we could use on this team

Yea I probably could've worded it better or gone into more detail, but I hate when people ramble on about nothing on this board. Who do you have in your draft.

Haven't done one. With us having no 1st round pick, I couldn't find the motivation to delve into this year's draft. Players like James and Crick, I find very polarizing.
