g-dawg Posted May 31, 2015 Share Posted May 31, 2015 I know the Falcons Draft was over a month ago but......I'm still having a hard time containing my euphoria.The Draft was simply.......RIDICULOUS!!!!While nothing is guaranteed and the players have to stay healthy and realize their potential, I see a minimum of 5 serious contributors and maybe a few stars included in the 5.I am not great at player comparisons but here is what I see - just to give you an idea:NFL Player Comparisons:Vic Beasley = Robert Mathis (Bill Polian made this comparison)Jalen Collins = Antonio Cromartie (Mike Mayock made this comparison)Tevin Coleman = Darren McFadden (Mayock comparison again)Justin Hardy = Danny Amendola (but hopefully healthy) - my comparisonGrady Jarrett = Jonathan Babineaux - my comparisonI even believe Akeem King might be a sneaky good player in time. I won't project him because that seems a little over-the-top given his draft status, but I have a good feeling about him.History tells us that at least 2 out of these 5 players will likely bust, but I don't know - if they can stay relatively injury-free - I believe this draft will beat the historical odds.While there was no franchise QB drafted (nor needed), I believe this 2015 Falcons draft haul has the chance to be the best in the 49 years of Falcons history. We got the right players and I believe we have the right NFL head coach to get the most out of our players.I am sure there will be some struggles in 2015 season and our overall roster still is not where it needs to be, but we definitely made a significant down payment on the talent needed to be an upper echelon contender for the SuperBowl in the next 3-4 years.Happy, Happy, Happy.
