Falcons Draft Position In Peril; Dimitroff May Not Be Able To Draft Amari Cooper If Falcons Lose 48-21

A food for thought is if Falcons make playoffs at 7-9 instead of missing playoffs at 7-9, it could change draft position by at least 8 spots. Making into the playoffs with the worst record will cause the Falcons to have the 21st pick at best.

Packers had the 21st pick last year at 8-7-1. Had they missed the playoffs at 8-8, they would have cycled draft positions with 5 other teams, potentially giving them the 14th draft position. At 7-9, the drop off may be even worse. At 6-10, it could be a matter of drafting in the 20s or within top 10.

Another example is the Seahawks in 2010. Had they missed the playoffs, they would have drafted 14th as opposed to the playoff minimum of 21.

In other words it's impertinent that Falcons at least make a run in the playoffs if they make it.

Not a bad list at all...but draft position really means nothing if you can properly evaluate talent.
