g-dawg Posted April 16, 2015 Share Posted April 16, 2015 Mark and Randy interviewed Mike Mayock this morning. link to podcast: http://atlanta.cbslocal.com/audio/marc-randy/I will summarize for you below the stuff Mayock said in response to questions asked:Falcons need an edge rusher at #8Dante Fowler the best edge rusherRandy Gregory has top 5 talent (in the draft)Doubts Falcons will go Randy Gregory because of character concernsMayock said Randy Gregory is ultimate boom-or-bust - he would not take him if he was GMVic Beasley and Shane Ray would have to learn to play OLB on 1st/2nd down as neither are stout enough otherwise. Both are more "specialty" players as passrushers.Bud Dupree probably fits what Dan Quinn wants to do on defense (better than Beasley/Ray). talented playerIn 2nd round, at #42 - Falcons likely look to go Offensive Line or CornerbackWhen asked about BPA vs. Defense, Mayock brought up Vikes/Zimmer and drafting of Anthony Barr. Vikes went from #31 defense to #11.Thinks Falcons can get a good RB in 3rd or 4th round - said Falcons should wait until those rounds to get a RB.Todd Gurley not worth a team trading into the top 10.Likes Dan Quinn a lotQuinn will bring tremendous energy and competition to the Falconslikes Big/Strong playersShanahan is smart w/ offensive weapons and should do well w/ Matt Ryan.
