6 Ways The Falcons Could Pass On A Pass-Rusher At No. 8

Actually with this draft being as strong as it is, this might play out to be the best option.

maybe but it is nothing that has ever been done in Atlanta Falcons history and it is the antithesis of Thomas Dimitroff - who always gets locked in on one player in the first round. We will know things really are different if we see Falcons trading down multiple times.

No way would I trade out of the first round. But a trade to 20 with Eagles could be an interesting haul of picks--particularly if it's Mariota.

That would be great to trade back with the Eagles and take full advantage of Kelly, but I mean how realistic is it that Mariota is even there for the Jets at 6 let alone to us at 8. I think our more realistic trade partners are Cleveland, San Fran, or Miami if Cooper is there at 8 and someone falls in love (49s)

agreed. seems momentum is on Mariota's side now and most think he will be taken in the two spot, whether by Titans or trade-up. Titans, Skins, Jets, Bears and Rams all have top 10 picks and could use a QB.

Actually Belichek has. Lol but he was choosing at 29 or better

I really dont know why the Titans wouldnt draft Marriota. If Whisenhunt is hitching his wagon to Mettenberger hes beggng to get fired.

I think Whis is trying to auction this pick to the highest bidder and it seems to be an ever increasing bid as Mariota's stock is some how soaring lmao even though he was already touted top 2.

Trade back to 20 w/ Eagles,

gain a 2nd rd this year and a first next year,

draft Gurley @ 20, and the 2 BPA on Defense in the 2nd rd.

2016 two 1st rd. picks would be DE.

Since this is a 2-3 year defensive rebuild, this would be a great for The Falcons while picking up their RB of the future. I'm not a Gurley wh0re btw.
