Si Draft Grade For Falcons


Recommended Posts

Atlanta Falcons: A

Only the Bengals had fewer sacks than Atlanta's 22 last season, and the Falcons went about fixing that issue right away, taking Clemson speed-rusher Vic Beasley with the eighth pick. Beasley put up 12 sacks and 21.5 tackles for loss on the nation's best defense last season, and he's no one-year wonder—he finished with 13 sacks and 23 tackles for loss the year before. He'll make new coach Dan Quinn very happy within Quinn's multiple fronts. The Falcons got a potential steal in the second round with LSU cornerback Jalen Collins, who started just 10 games for the Tigers but looks very comfortable on the field and projects as a physical No. 1 cornerback. Third-round back Tevin Coleman out of Indiana is a pure speedster who can add some real dynamism to a ground game that's been stuck in recent years. But the most interesting late-round pick for the Falcons—and a guy who might be one of the steals of this draft—is Clemson defensive tackle Grady Jarrett, who many had with a second-round grade. He's a highly productive three-tech, and to get him in the fifth round is a gift. Pairing him with Beasley means that the Falcons' formerly dormant pass rush is about to get a lot more interesting.​—DF

Isn't Jarrett a one-tech?

Nah, he's a 3-tech UT

I could have swore that when Pioli was talking about him he was talking about him being a penetrating 1-tech.Of course I am just beginning to try to understand the different types of techs and the nuances of a 4-3 Under so...

Edit:Just watched the video again and he said a one gap player not 1-tech.

It's funny that the homers on the NFL Network keep shining the helmets of four to five other clubs:

Rams

Jets

Browns

Bucs

Titans

I thought we had the best draft (looking at it objectively). The only pick they could poke holes at is Jalen Collins, but that is due to his character concerns.

let's see,

Rams-gurley

Jets- New York team=media attention, plus Leonard Williams

Browns-Manziel

Bucs-Winston

Titans-Mariotta

There's why NFL network is focusing on those teams
