Falcons May Be Eyeing Move For D.fowler?


Recommended Posts

What if they trade up and he's...not that good?

Just stay at 8 or trade down. I wouldn't want them making an aggressive trade up for any player in the Draft. Maybe a trade that only involves one 4th rounder or later, but not anything more than that.

Jesus Christ I hate the football media sometimes.

D. Led writes a (tremendously poorly written/edited) column about how TD trades up at some point every year. HE WRITES THIS COLUMN EVERY YEAR.

Somehow, this turns into a rumor?

D. Led is comfortably the worst beat writer I've ever seen, regardless of sport. I don't understand how he still has a job...

No way Q risks getting his first head coaching tenure off to a rocky start by trading away a bunch of draft picks for 1 player who may or may not be mediocre in the NFL. If he does this, then Fowler or Williams must surely be a SURE THING in his eyes.

But I thought Clowney was too last year.

Again, it's that time of the week: SMOKESCREEN for the Saints to think we are more focused on Fowler than Beasley, who they're in love with....ALLEGEDLY.

Quinn just set the league on fire w a defense made up of primarily mid-late round guys. Dont think he will feel he needs to give away picks for a certain guy to make the D work. Especially since we werent willing to get into bidding wars for free agents on D.

I wouldn't like it. Fowler has a high floor because I think he can always play LB and be good at that. There is no guarantee that he will be a good Pass rusher though. Obviously no guarantees in the draft about anyone, but I believe we can stay at 8 and get a good pass rusher. I prefer not to trade up for anyone, not a knock on Fowler.

Quinn coached Fowler. If he wants him, I'm okay with getting him. If he's okay moving up for him, then I am too.

But I'd bet that precisely because Quinn coached Fowler, this isn't likely. Most draft pundits seem to think he's the best pass rusher in the draft, but not a few have said he has holes in his game and a high bust factor. Remember when everyone assumed we'd get Amobi Okoye because Petrino coached him?

Remember when we didn't? Sometimes familiarity isn't a plus for the prospective draft pick.

I am *this close* to waging a social media war in an effort to have him removed.
