I'm sure this has been talked about a good bit but I'm of the belief that we are a big NT type guy away from being a good run stopping D.

Our D is very athletic and fast and when teams run sideline to sideline on us IMO thats playing in our favor. We plug the middle and force teams into our strength.

I know people want more pass rush but Nolan's forte is when teams are in 3rd and long and confusing the QB. We plug the middle vs the Niners and I don't believe that game gets close like it did.

I believe John Jenkins is our guy. Eat up the middle of the field and let Nolan go to work on 3rd downs.

Falcons need someone smaller and quicker than John Jenkins... and I say this as someone who watched every down he played for Georgia. Jenkins is deceptively athletic for his size, but his endurance has not followed his development as a true 3-4 NT. This could change/improve once he gets into a full NFL strength and conditioning program, but I don't think he's a good fit for the Falcons regardless.

Jenkins is strictly a two down player to me. So I guess it wouldn't make sense to draft a guy for 2 downs in rd 1 unless he is a certain run stopping space eater that can hold the point every play.

But I didn't think he was expected to go that high because he IMO will only be a 2 down player for a while.
