Ranking Best and Worst Drafting Teams in Round 1


Recommended Posts

7. Atlanta Falcons

Surplus AV per pick: Plus-3.5
Biggest hit: Matt Ryan (No. 3, 2008 draft)
Biggest miss: Peria Jerry (No. 24, 2009 draft)

The Falcons gave up a lot to draft Julio Jones No. 6 overall in the 2011 draft, but Jones has exceeded the already-lofty expectations of a top pick. Recent drafts also have been effective with Atlanta's past three first-round picks -- Vic Beasley Jr. (2015), Jake Matthews (2014) and Desmond Trufant (2013) -- each starting at least 15 games in their rookie seasons.

TD has done a good job where it really matters.......... Injury's have killed us.....

If we'd have traded down more, we could have survived injuries through depth.

Maybe tonight is when the front office finally figures that out.
