Thanks Gang! I always appreciate the feedback from you guys: good & bad.

Thanks! Always enjoy your vids. I have to say I don't understand why u gave us a B tho.

Thanks! I'm not as sold on Collins & Coleman as others. IMO, there were much better options available than those two. Not saying they are bad players, but there were 'better' ones (again, IMO)

Name a better option in the 3rd round than a 2000 yard back in a terrible offense to a RB needy team

Thanks for the vid tho

Loved Coleman pick.

See his point on Collins, coulda got a Day 1 starting TE in Max Williams, a stud OG Marpet, or gone even crazier with Randy Gregory together with Beasley to form a duo pass rush we haven't seen since days of Kerney and chuck Smith.

I don't like Williams, Gregory would've been cool, but that's a stretch comparison and Marpet is far from an immediate stud although I would've preferred him to Collins as well

Yeah Em I would have gone with Gurley, Gregory and Diggy in the first three. That would have been quite a haul. Many had all three projected in the first.

Not mad at Beasley, Collins and Coleman though.

Who would you have taken for the Falcons? We had needs at DE/OLB, CB, RB, WR, OG and FS.

It was hard for me to believe Diggy was there for us in the 3rd. It was even harder to believe we passed on him, even for a player as talented as Coleman. RBs were all over the place in FA and the draft, we might...just might...have gotten Coleman in the 4th. The Giants wasted no time turning in Diggy's card, I think they got their next Strahan.

Yeah I believe we blew that one. We could have gotten Ajayi, Cobb or Allen later.

When Quinn and TD tell you they were seriously considering taking Coleman in the 2nd round over Collins, but decided against it; and then Coleman is still sitting there in the 3rd round. I think it's preposterous to suggest they didn't get the player they wanted with that pick. I'm very sold on that selection at that spot.

The Collins pick, I'm still not so sure about. But what I am sure about is that Quinn knows defense, and seems to have a plan. So I'm riding it out and hoping he knows what he's doing with Collins.

Em had us picking Nate freaking Orchard at #8 in his mock. I have a VERY tough time accepting his evaluations on anything. Especially when he believes we had "much better options".

We killed this draft. Everyone with half a brain knows it's a top-5 draft and an overwhelming "A" grade. But the guy who thinks Nate Orchard should have gone #8 gives us a "B". LOL. Okay. Sounds legit.

Time to find a new hobby, Em.

Everyone can have an opinion and I accept Gameplan's but I don't really think anyone could convince me we could have really done much better in the draft. Changing one pick shuffles the board as taking someone will almost always re-prioritize some other team's picks unless reaching. Grading the draft should never be done in a vacuum. I would also only grade picks 1-6. It should be an evaluation of the following:

1. Is the pick a standout at their position?

2. Did the pick stand out against quality competition?

3. Is the pick reliable/stable? (multiple years of production/minor or no injury history/no off-field issues)

4. Did the pick fill a potential hole (or upgrade) in the team's scheme?

5. Was the pick a "reach" for where they were drafted and expectations? (1-2 = day 1 starter, 3-4 = solid contributor, 5-6 = developmental, 7-UDFA = Lottey Pick).

If you can largely answer yes for most of those, it's a quality pick. From my seat, Collins is really the only one I would not be able to go "Yes" down the line relative to their draft position but I'd say we got A's for everyone else.

Beasley(1) = A

Collins (2)= B-

Coleman (3) = A-

Hardy (4)= A

Jarrett (5) = A+

Rogers (7) = No Grade

King (7) = No Grade
