I'm going to disagree with Alford being better in the slot than McClain, Arenas, or Wilson. And i would be absolutely irate if we took another CB in the 1st round after using a 1st and 3rd for Tru two years ago and then a 2nd on Alford.

If Peters were to fall to the 2nd though...

I still would prefer to go another way, but i guess it depends. If we end up picking mid-late in each round and the guy has some insane fall to where he is available near the back part of the 2nd and we also did a good job in free agency taking care of needs I could LIVE with it

But that Tru/Alford deal in the draft cuts me deep. I made a thread right after it happened and have bitched* about it countless times on here.

I'm actually not hating our CB's at all. Tru is a beast. Alford had a down year, but i dang sure don't want to throw the towel on him already or i will be even more salty about drafting him in the 2nd. McClain, Smith, Arenas all looked good in preseason. And these dudes have been playing behind one of the worst pass rushes in the league. I just have to imagine them looking even better with a quality front 7 in front of them.

I like both Trufant and Alford. I'm just a fan of Peters is all, have been since long before this year. I think that he's a 1st round talent with some issues. If we could get him in the 2nd, or even better, the 3rd, that would be a steal. Add him to our current CBs and a pass rush, and we could have a beastly defense.

I would be happy if he came in and was beastly enough to win the starting job, but would be even more pissed that Alford (a 2nd round pick) was already sent to the bench because he dang sure is not built to be a NB in my opinion.

And thats all assuming that we get a stud pass rusher in the 1st or either a FA pass rusher.

We need a pass rush in the 1st and free agency and in the later rounds somewhere too me man. I think we need too focus on in the trenches, focus on winning at the point of attack and forget about CBs.

And I don't see in any way possible that Peters becomes a second round pick coming up this year. Just don't even see how you can even consider that happening.

Kroy Biermann leads our team in sacks with 2.5, we need to double up with the first 2 picks as far as the pass rush. Been saying this for years, get the point of attack straight and all the other positions outside of that will improve on there own.

No we don't I'd prefer we double up with pass rushers in FA,then this opens the draft up for us significantly.

Yeah, you could go that route too, but too me regardless of what we do, the first pick needs too be a pass rusher in my opinion.

It could well be BUT I personally would take the experience before going the rookie route.

If Justin Houston decides he wants to test the waters I'd have a Kings Ransom of a contract waiting for him.Not Mario Williams but a 6 year 80 odd mill would do it for me.

It won't be Houston's choice.

In my opinion, off season needs include:

Interior OL. I think that the re-tooling of the OL needs to be completed. It is time to acquire Blalock's replacement. We can add a free agent for an immediate fix, or we can draft an eventual replacement. I would go for the draft option.

TE. It is clear that Toilolo is not a reliable target for Ryan. He is slow and lumbering and he misses way too many blocks. I don't know how that position stacks up in the draft, but I get the feeling that we may have to sign one in free agency. I suggest Pettigrew. He will not command a lot of money, but he would be an upgrade from Toilolo.

RB. I know that we have a RBC situation and that we have underused Antone, but quite a few of this unit will become FA's this off season. S Jax and Rodgers do not offer anything special and should not be retained. Freeman has potential and needs to step into the rotation. We need to draft a young RB that is heftier than Freeman. I would target one such player in the third round.

LB. We might re-sign Spoon, but I would not advise it. While he is a decent/good player, he is too injury-prone. For this reason, we need to add two LB's this off season.....one in the draft and another in free agency. The pass rush must improve and I think that a permanent switch to the 3-4 will require that the pass rush come from the LB position.

As a surprise, I would also draft a raw QB. Matt Ryan is at his peak right now, if this franchise has to go through a rebuild, we might as well start looking into the deep future.

Bro I don't want to build for the future I want to get it done player wise next year.We seem to have a base of players we need to take the BPA approach Draft and FA.Basically add more talent and go for the win now attitude.You notice that with teams like the Aints & the Ravens.

If we take the long term approach I believe we bypass Ryan's career.Like you stated Ryan is at his peak right now if we take another 2 seasons mucking around building Ryan's career path may well be on the downside.Finding another QB will as good as he is will be a nightmare and then truly we are back to the Falcons of old.
