XXVIII-III Posted May 1, 2015 Share Posted May 1, 2015 When I talked to Atlanta coach Dan Quinn on SiriusXM this week, it was pretty clear he wanted to improve the defense and the run game. Personally, I thought he should've addressed the latter -- not the former -- at No. 8.Vic Beasley struck me as a major stretch there. Yes, he put on a show at the "Underwear Olympics" (also known as the NFL Scouting Combine), but I thought he was a mid-first-round talent. While Quinn can coach him up, Todd Gurley should've been the pick. The Georgia running back would've been the perfect guy to complement Matt Ryan and keep the Falcons' defense fresh -- akin to what DeMarco Murray did for Dallas last year. Atlanta does not employ a legit starting NFL running back.This was odd. And a blown opportunityhttp://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000489584/article/2015-nfl-draft-raiders-browns-highlight-firstround-takeaways Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
