Quick Mock To Gauge Opinion

So with the news of Shane Ray potentially going on the PUP to start the season, I've been thinking. I feel like there is a good possibility that Beasley, Fowler, and Dupree are off the board by 8. So what to do? What TD loves to do: trade up. Before you break out the pitchforks and torches, I understand that we need all the talent we can get, however I don't want to go into the upcoming season without a legitimate pass rusher.

Don't worry though, I'm not advising we break the bank, rather something a little like this.

Falcons trade 1st and 3rd to Redskins for the 5th pick. Conditional on Beasley or Williams being available

1st Vic Beasley / Leonard Williams
2nd Damarious Randall FS
3rd Traded to Washington
4th Mitch Morse OG
5th Zach Zenner RB
6th Nick Marshall CB
7th DeAndre Smelter WR
7th Damien Wilson ILB
Well, let me know what you think.

I like your logic along with both Williams & Beasley but I'd likely stay @ 8 (or try to trade down) & take the BPA.

When the run on pass rushers starts & we're on the outside looking in, I want to start looking for value & the BPA:

OL, Gurley, Cooper (or White). Then go pass rusher in the 2nd round or trade back into the latter part of the 1st round.

I could live with it, though I'd rather see us trade down than trade up.

Only pick I don't like is Damien Wilson in the 7th. If we're not going to upgrade on Worrilow, there's no point in drafting another middle linebacker. We already have Stupar, Bradford, and possibly Spruill behind Worrilow on the depth chart.

Here's an opinion-

Mock drafts are TIRED.

Ok.

Wilson is depth/special teams. If 2nd 7th round pick is the only one you don't like, I can live with that. I do see what you're saying though.

Although I would be absolutely thrilled to get Williams, we cannot afford IMO to trade away another high (3rd round) pick to get him. We have too many other depth needs

I can respect that. I just want the pass rush fixed. If the run starts early I just don't want to be left out in the cold. I think Beasley and Williams are the only players who warrant the third.
