My favorite defensive player at Bama for a while has been CJ Mosely. I never brought him up because I didn't see him as a clear need. Thing is I hated about him, was he sometimes seemed to play soft and players around him were looking to him. Spruill plays like a man who wants it all badly. He's not coming heret o just win baby, he's coming here to take some guys down! I love his desire.

Exactly. I'm really liking what the Falcons are doing.

Shembo and Spruill both look like they could fit well behind the type of defensive line that we have assembled.

Doesn't matter what we do at this point. I honestly think this is by far the very best offseason in a long long time. Through the front office additions, coaching changes, free agent signings, and now the draft.

It definitely is. I'm actually feeling good about a falcons draft since ever. Lol

Hey man I'm definitely with you on that one!

But now YOU don't forget about Goodman either! biggrin.pngAdded 15 pounds muscle and already seemed like a good run stopper!

But yeah man I agree with you, I'm excited about what the Falcons are doing!

Yea I'd love to see Goodman be productive as well

Its really on Hageman in my opinion he has top 10 talent but was very inconsistent and didn't have good stamina( and we all saw how that hurt Homles last year) if he's as disruptive as he can be the. We got a steal and just maybe the DROY but I will say I was in favor of Ealy as he has that work ethic and Hageman may not.

Peters has always played out of psotion when Nolan came here he was forced to play the NT to much and was able to play the 3 tec in 4-3 sets as that was Babs

But now with Soliai I can see Nolan moving not only Hageman but peters as well all over the line in both 3-4 and 4-3. Be interested to see if Hageman gets so looks as a rush LBer in passing downs to help get Babs and Jackson on the feild as there decent rushers.

Please don't tell me you're complaining as well.

Mayock said at this point in the draft, the difference between now and udfa are so minimal that all it takes is one or more teams to project the guy higher.

Did you see the Saints picked a LB right after us? It's very possible they were about to pick him

it has more to do with Dimitroff's past history in later rounds than anything else - I really don't care if we take "no-name" players - as long as we convert on some of them and hit singles w/ the occassional home run.

In rounds 4-7, you are looking for diamonds in the rough....Maybe Marcus Spruill is that player - but Dimitroff has not hit on these picks very often.

I think he will be a rush specialist. He has incredible explosion. If the dline plays to their abilities this season he will come up big in situational football.

Yep yep.I too think a lot of it falls on how well Hageman doe, the dude has a ton of potential but now he has to earn it. It's great that he already has a little connection with Coach Cox from the Senior Bowl and seeing how passionate he was last night when he got drafted makes me like him a lot more. Would love to see us get Zach Kerr to backup Soliai at NT.

the vid looked good but everybody in the draft has good highlight video. agree, Spruill looks like his forte is as a run stopper - he will be a special teamer only for rook year - most likely.

Spoons days are numbered now.

Possibly but I would not start filling out depth charts with out him.... He has to stay healthy...if he does that then I think he sticks around a long time.... With the way the new defensive front is shaping up he's going to have the most freedom to roam around that he is ever had here

Probably so. I want one more big guy up front. McCullers or Kerr.

I have the unfortunate distinction of being a diehard Syracuse basketball and football fan. The football program is at least back to being average, as I watch every game on Saturdays. This guy is a beast, he has been their best defensive player since arguably his freshmen year. Now whether or not he just looks great because he wasn't surrounded with excellent talent is a possibility. But I can honestly say this is the best pick they've made if you don't count the first two rounds.

glad to hear.....always good to know someone who has followed the player's career. We don't watch a lot of Syracuse football down here in the dirty South.
