I know Fluker is not a LT hence him on the depth chart behind Clabo. He is without a doubt the best RT in the draft, my idea of drafting he and Warford on the right side will allow us to run on anyone anytime we want. If you go back and look at all the games which we struggled to run the ball we got no push on the oline. Clabo will be 32 this upcoming year with his best year behind him making 4.5 million for the next two years, not necessarily money well spent.

I noticed that Fluker was there but the Falcons need is for a LT not a RT. Fluker struggles in pass pro, perhaps too much even for a RT.

I agree that he does have some work to do in pass protection which is why he will play behind Clabo (who also struggles mightily in pass protection) for a year and allow Pat Hill to develope him. There are no prospects that we will draft in the first nor second that will not have some flaws in their game which is why they have fell that far in the draft. However I do disagree with you on priority LT vs RT.

Right now with Baker playing much better this year and Holmes developing on the bench I don’t think we are in the market for a LT. Our problems stem on the right side of the ball at guard and tackle. My thought process is if we side Konz over to center, draft Warford and Fluker at guard and tackle. The size and power we would possess would dominate any dline which would open up the field to more one on one cover for White and Jones.I could be wrong but I just think the good far exceeds the bad for drafting Fluker, if he is available in the 2nd.

Cowboys, 1st Saint, and Raiders games were all bad games for Clabo and it is not just about protection for the RT position you also have to look at running lanes. A great deal of our running problems are due to the fact we do not get any push on the line of scrimmage.

i like this draft. not flashy but it upgrades our lines on both sides of the ball.

Thanks ideally that was something I was trying to accomplish.

Clabo had a couple of rough games earlier.... He has looked good lately

I will agree that Clabo does look a lot better now than earlier in the season, but the truth is he will be 32 at the begin of next season with a price tag that is starting to out weight his skill set. I figure keep him another year until Fluker can get acclimated to the NFL and cut or trade him in 2014 which ever is possible. If he is willing to restructure his contract great keep until he is no longer capable of starting and haven him mentor Fluker.

But having the ideal of having Fluker, Warford and Konz has to excite everyone on the board. Depending on the development of Holmes this would arguable be the best oline in the league in 2014.

I dont think we have a 1st round pick to kind of waste for a year.... We will most likely get a guy that can help us in a needed position from day one

This is where we disagree, this team having very few holes and there are only selected positions and players in this draft that could fill those needs that will even make a pick in the first round worth it. I can't see any rookie coming in and starting other than TE (if Gonzo retires) or RG, either position is worth a 1st pick.

Wasn't just Konz thou, Clabo own a piece of that as well. Bennet the DE had a pretty decent day too!

The Bucs were playing us hard as if their season was on the line, didn't seem like the OL studied much this week. Take a look at a meaningful game when we played them last time - Bennett against Clabo week 12: 0 tackles, 0 sacks, 0 hits, 0 hurries. This is just a slight anomaly for Clabo. First multi-pressure day since week 10.

So you ok with him taking the day off?

And it is not just about giving up pressures or sacks, most of your premier pass rushers play on the other side. Its more about opening holes for the backs on 3rd and 1 getting a push on the line to pick up the tough yards. Behind this right side we can run the ball when we need to.

A lot of our players took the day off, it was like the Carolina game.

We also average the highest run yards going behind and either side of Clabo. He's not the problem.

LE: 3.1

LT: 3.7

LG: 3.2

ML: 3.1

MR: 2.7

RG: 4.3

RT: 5.0

RE: 4.7

Our rush yards per carry average, we seem to do a lot better running behind Clabo than any other place on the line. ML means middle left and MR means middle right in case you're wondering.

Looking at all the buzz some of my late round have been getting this might not be that bad of a mock draft.

not drafting a DE kind of kills it, but yeah, not bad overall. Be nice if we could land that trade down, but I don't think TD has ever traded down.

Well I have us sign the best DE pass rusher in FA (Cliff Avril) we still have Massaquoi who I suspect will get significant more PT?

Well before the trade for Julio we never traded up in the draft either.

The reason why I think the trade with Miami make so much sense is because they need playmakers. I can see Miami surrounding Tannenhill with weapons, use their first pick for a LT Fisher to replace Long, resigning Bush and signing Jennings. I think they will need to add another player to take the pressure off of Jennings like a Terrence Williams or DeAndre Hopkins. Just makes too much sense to me.

Avril isn't all that good, and even if he was, we still need somebody to spell Abraham on the right side. Massaquoi has shown very little in the playing time he's gotten.

Also, we traded up in our first draft with TD to get Sam Baker.

Cliff Avril is the best pass rusher available are we talking about the same guy?

So you don't think if someone is good in their first year that there is no opportunity for growth and developement?

William Moore

Spoon

DeCoud

Just to name a few!
