Reasons The Falcons Should Take Cooper Or Gurley At 8

1. A team will never regret taking a great player.

2. The Falcons could really use an offensive difference maker to take pressure off Ryan/Jones,

3. Roddy White will turn 34 this year and should easily transition into '#3 WR' role.(Cooper)

4. Being able to run the ball makes the whole team better. The Falcons were a poor running team the last 2 years. (Gurley)

5. Both players have 0 character questions.

6. Pass rushers are historically risky Draft picks. The last time the Falcons hit on a pass rusher with a premium Draft pick was Patrick Kerney.

7. Who would you be more excited to see in a Falcons uniform? Amari Cooper, Todd Gurley or 'enter undersized DE/OLB here'

8. Nobody would have a problem if the Falcons go 1. OLB/DE 2. offensive skill player, so how could it be a terrible strategy to reverse that?

I could keep going all day, but I'll stop there for now. I eagerly await futile attampts to defeat my argument.

p.s I don't really think Cooper will be available, but a lot of people seem to.

I AGREE 10000% I like your quote "No team will regret drafting a great player" GURLEY!!

1. A team will never regret taking a great player.

Started off with an inaccuracy. Julio Jones is a great player and people still got the nerve to b*tch and moan around here as if we gave up so much for him and he's the reason this team has struggled in recent years. Grass is ALWAYS greener syndrome. JJ Watt is arguably the best defensive player in the league and it hasn't lead to much of anything for the Texans.

Bottom line is we need a pass rusher more than any other position at that stage in the draft. Going Cooper or Gurley would be silly but it's mock draft season and guys just want to stoke conversation.

Anyone that thinks drafting gurley at 8 is a good idea probably thinks 2+2 = jello and believes purple is a food group.

So who should we draft then? You want us to just blindly draft a pass rusher? None of the projected 1st round pass rushers are top 10 picks. Quinn came from Seattle, most of their pass rushers were not big names so we can get maybe a trey flowers, preston smith or the guy from UCLA in the middle rounds.
