I honestly think there's a good chance Beasley is there at 8. There's been a couple reports that the Raiders and Jets both have high interest in Dupree. I could see the top 8 playing out like this:

Winston

Mariota

Fowler

Williams

Cooper

Dupree

White

Beasley

Its really hard to say for certain. I know we will see for sure next week.

I would rather the Redskins... They could use the extra pick(s) to repair their team after the RG3 trade, we hop right in front of the Jets who look like they are gonna take an EDGE player or a QB, and they would move one spot ahead of the Giants who have similar needs.

I don't want to, but if we do for Beasley? I'm not arguing with it. God, I want him to be a Falcon so bad. I haven't liked a pass rusher this much since Robert Quinn. And yeah, they're totally different players, and he obviously wasn't the first (or best) one selected in 2011, but he panned out pretty dang well. Beasley is honestly in a class of his own among pass rushers this year and I'm pretty convinced he'll be the DPOY - as he's said he's aiming for multiple times. That kind of player is worth trading up for, even if most "experts" say he'll be available later.

The trade up I'm eyeing most right now is trading up from our second rounder (ideally with our second next year, as much as that'd annoy people) to leapfrog the Colts for Landon Collins. I want that man to be a Falcon. If we somehow land him, Beasley, and a RB in the 3rd like David Johnson (or Abdullah if he somehow slips) I'll go ahead and prematurely chalk it up as the best draft we've had since drafting Ryan.

I like Beasley, but, hypothetical, would it be worth trading up that far if Ray would fall to us? Not so sure.

If we want to trade up, it better be someone clearly better than everyone else at the position *CoughWilliamsCough*, is Beasley that for sure? Eh...

If I was the gm. And I feel that this one guy will upgrade my defense and make everyone better around him then pull the trigger. If Williams falls to 8 then draft him without thinking. That's my first scenario

If Beasley,Ray,Schreef or Gurley fall to 8. I would solely need a pass rusher and there is a drop off in talented pass rushers after the first round. So, I would draft Ray or Beasley. As far as running backs go, this running back is deep enough this year to get a quality back in the 2nd or 3rd round. So, I would have to pass on Gurley. My second scenario

BUT, If Beasley,Ray and Williams is gone. And Schreef and Gurley is there. I'm drafting Gurley,drafting a pass rusher in the 2nd and OG in the 3rd. My third scenario.

With out ? Trade up for a 1 trick pony in Beasley please.Beasley would not even start at least Williams is a day 1 starter folks on this bord kill me.

Who says Beasley wouldn't start day one? He has more talent than any edge player we have on the roster right now. He needs work playing the run, and that can be accomplished this offseason.
