Atlanta Traded 6Th To Move Up For Jarrett.


Recommended Posts

WE still need a starting Guard.

true. I think Falcons are high on this Mike Person that they signed in free agency - none of us were counting on him but Quinn/Shanny must be.

We were NEVER going to address all our holes in this draft. OLine is not the hole I thought would be left - but it is.

Great move... Great pickup, so late in the rounds.

ANALYSIS

STRENGTHS Jarrett lacks ideal size for his position but he makes up for it with outstanding quickness, leverage and effort. Against the run, he has the foot quickness to shoot gaps and disrupt and he can stack single blocks at the point of attack. If he gets caught by angle blocks, he lacks the sand to avoid being washed down the line of scrimmage. As a pass rusher, he has an array of quick hand moves and he is relentless with his motor. He should start very early in his NFL career and be a disruptive player versus both the run and pass.

WEAKNESSES Undersized, despite his well-built frame. Relies on initial burst off snap to generate pass rush. Plays hard but will wear down in the fourth quarter. Might not be able to carry too much more good weight on his frame.

DRAFT PROJECTION Round 2

SOURCES TELL US "Grady will take you on a ride when he gets into you. I think grades on him will really vary since the only real fit for him is in a 1-gap 4-3 defense on the nose. Teams will beat him up over his size, but someone is going to get a good football player with him." -- NFC North scout

NFL COMPARISON Earl Mitchell

BOTTOM LINE Jarrett is built like a refrigerator, but he's hardly a stationary player. He lacks the overall size to be considered as a nose by most base 3-4 teams, but he's a perfect shade-nose fit for teams looking for a disruptive force in a one-gap, penetrating front.

Seattle typically has a patchwork O-line by league standards with random castoffs and transitioning players from the D-line to the O-line.

6th round pick is chump change to move up for a guy who was a projected 2nd-3rd rd pick to get him in the 5th. Thats good business right there.

Sensational pick-up this late in the draft. Well worth giving a 6th round pick to get. Falcons killing it in this draft.

I don't know where I'm at right now.

I know all these players and have seen them in several mocks.

We're drafting players below where most people had them projected instead of the other way around.

TD trades up and everybody is like HELL YEAH

I'm scared.I don't understand what is happening.
