We are going to relax our filter some and will make some riskier picks just not at 8. So with Fowler, Beasley, and Gregory off the board we look else where. We feel that we did enough in FA that we can go BPA at 8 with the depth on defense in this draft. Arguably the best player left on the board will be an offensive player. We would like to trade back and get Gregory or Dupree but no one will budge.

1.)Scherff, Brandon OG 6'5" 319 Iowa

Patience pays off and we get a DE at number 2 with some 1st round potential and a guy that would probably go round 1 a lot of years.

2.) Smith, Preston DE 6'5" 271 Mississippi St.

This pick is a no brainer for anyone that has been paying attention. You may not have got many looks at him because Gurley was the offense the last couple of years, but when you did see him it was pretty impressive.

3.) Conley, Chris WR 6'2" 213 Georgia

Could take a RB or safety here. Instead though a good fit a LEO is on the board that has everything but the sack numbers. This really is not that unusual though because playing in the SEC as a lineman you are always thinking run first. His hands are very active but need polish. He is long and athletic and with some coaching and time possibly a steal.

4.)Hunter, Danielle DE 6'5" 252 LSU

Letting the draft come to us and being patient is really paying off and we jump at the chance to draft a pretty good ILB that can play well in about any LBer spot.

5.) Ryan, Jake OLB 6'2" 240 Michigan

We get a RB that should be a good fit for the outside zone in the 6th.

6.) Zenner, Zach RB 5'11" 223 South Dakota St.

Still around in the 7th figured he was going in the 6th. Yes please lets have him and hope he is even more motivated with a chance to get playing time on a reforming Oline.

7.) Shepherd, Austin OT 6'4" 315 Alabama

Here is the project a converted QB with one year experience at TE. Seems very coachable and someone will give him a shot late. Has some serious upside for where we draft him so it is worth a shot and see if his game can translate to the NFL.

7.) Bell, Blake TE 6'6" 252 Oklahoma

Big fan of Preston Smith's talent. I'm also a fan of Conley, but 3rd round seems to be reaching a little.

Who is gonna play FS for us, now and more importantly, down the road?

Good job overall. I'm not a believer in waiting to address edge rusher anywhere besides pick 8, but you make a great case for it.

I've tried really hard to like a couple of FSs in this class and really no one I would reach for. There is one I would love to take in the 4th but I do not think he gets past the middle 3rd but taking Derron Smith at our pick is a bit of a reach. If not for some drops at the combine I had Conley going in the 2nd I think we are darn lucky to get him in the 3rd.

IMO this draft would let us cut ties with Baker after this season if he can not come back and then take out the rest of the trash on the Oline next year. It will also allow us to cut ties with any of the guys we gave it make it or break it contracts to on defense the if they do not make it. It however will leave us with the biggest question mark at free safety.

I was going to mention Derron Smith, who for some reason I think we might get in 3rd round.....

I think you see the big picture well, falcons have too much work to do to fix everything in one year.

Good job.

I love this draft with an exception of Jaquiski Tartt at the 3 instead of Conley. I like how you refused Gregory and Ray who are to dumb to not be smoking pot , ( its cost both millions] neither one will do us any good being suspended and sitting on the sideline, I'd definantly draft neither till after the 5th round. Great pick at !, love his nasty. Great job!
