Free Agency To Date And Its Implications On The Draft

18 posts in this topic

Greetings Falcons fans,

Been a while since I posted here but just looking at the handshake deals that are going on and am quite happy with the way the 7 picks ahead of us are looking in free agency.

1. Bucs - Jamies Winston would have to be a lock here

2. Tennesee Titans- Could go with Mariota, but BPA here would have to be Leonard Williams.

3. Jacksonville Jaguars- I think they give *Bortles another toy and take Kevin White or Amari Cooper to go along with Julius Thomas.

4. Oakland Raiders- They get whoever the jags don't take.

5- Washington Redskins- If we do indeed sign Orakpo they will need someone opposite Kerrigan, Fowler jnr for them would be a great pick.

6- New York Jets, Already been said if Mariota is on the board they are trading the pick, if he isn't they really need help on the OL and at CB. Schreff off the board here?

7- Chicago Bears, With Stephen Paea set to depart for the Skins this and the signing of McPhee this tells me they will most likely be looking at Danny Shelton.

8- Atlanta Falcons, We will be sitting pretty at #8, I really really really really really really really want Beastley!

I'm sure the landscape will continue to change throughout free agency but a couple of moves gave me a better idea of where teams prior will be heading.

Bortles is Jags QB...

So not much has changed...

Gabbert is no longer with the Jags, and I don't understand why people are saying Jags need a receiver. They've got three young receivers, two being 2nd rounders in Marqise Lee, Allen Robinson, and Allen Hurns. Give them time.

The Bears will be losing Briggs too. They need another linebacker/pass rusher as well. That is the team I'm most worried about taking the guy we want.

I too am worried about the Bears. Everyone has Shelton as their guy right now, but that could change. They are contenders for Knighton though I think he goes to Oakland. Basically, hope they don't sign a big DT in FA.

They're also going after Julius Thomas pretty hard. What they need is talent in the secondary and O-line.

I think you could be setting yourself up for the big letdown bro. I just checked 10 different mocks and only two had Beasley going to us. Five of them had him going to WAS, and believe it or not, three had us passing on him and taking either Ray, Gregory or Scherff. Boy if that happens there will be a bunch of sick puppies around here.

I'd be shocked if the Redskins didn't go offense, especially with the talent at WR in this class.

Definitely O-line, but no lineman deserves to be in the top 3, and not even top 5 this year. They allowed the most sacks in the league this past year I think. They gave up 71 sacks.

It's why I've been expecting them to spend heavily in free agency to fix their O-line and they've already got the ball rolling on that front.

I'm still expecting them to take Beasley though.

1-TB-Winston yes

2-TEN-Mariota- I just have to think they take the chance on a QB that wont come up again.

3-JAG-Williams-They are begging for SOMEBODY to take Mariota at 2. If Williams does go 2 which would not be a surprise, they upgrade Abry Jones to Danny Sheltons back up. They drafted WR twice in rd 2 last year and found UDFA Hurns.

4-OAK-White-They need a WR and it could be the BPA.

5-WAS-Fowler-I think they will replace Orakpo in the draft despite Trent Murphy last years 2nd rd pick.

6-NYJ-Trae Waynes-Wishful thinking but they desperately need CB's. I think Waynes is a bust. Justin Gilbert went 8 last year..

7-CHI-Beasley-I hate it but Fox will get Beasley, Houston, Ferguson, Allen and may sign Knighton and Mcphee to start ahead of Ferguson and Allen. They might cut Allen who knows.

8-ATL-Amari Cooper-BPA and will save us money for next years FA period as we can cut Roddy.
