NFL.COM gives Falcons an " A" sorryif already posted


Recommended Posts

Neal at LB...HMMMM

Is this the creativity that TD is talking about? Crazy to think the Falcons would use a 1st pick on a project player, but if it is true and it works out then it is genius. However, if it is true and is a failure, and the Falcons miss out on superstars drafted after Neal...I don't even want to think about that.

The reason the Fslcons draft of Neal was rated so high, is because of Sooooorry Akz Worryuslow! Wants Neal in and Low out of here! 

Haha!! Ever heard of Cover Three? Means the Strong Safety can play like a linebacker. If spoon is healthy, we will have Spoon, Worrilow, Wheeler as ILBs

But we need more... so we will probably get a LB with the next pick

NFC South

Atlanta Falcons 
Draft pick: Keanu Neal (No. 17 overall) 
Day 1 grade: A 
The skinny: Neal will likely play as a linebacker for the Falcons, flying all over the field and aiding in coverage. That's exactly what they needed.

BUT, BUT, BUT, the whole POINT of Quin's defense is to use a STRONG SAFETY as a hybrid, not AS a linebacker.........lmao  Neal isnt REPLACING anybody at linebacker, he will be in the box WITH the other linebackers as a strong safety...........

In the TAMPA TWO defense, your middle linebacker plays SAFETY as PART of the scheme. There is a DIFFERENCE in the schemes. How do these writers, never mind.

Kam Chancellor plays more linebacker than Safety for the seahawks, thats just how the 3 deep zone scheme works.

These so-called draft experts seem to only do cursory research before they actually write these things, so its not much of a surprise. Can't blame them really, that would take up a lot of their time, which is usually reserved for writing 10 irrelevant mock drafts. You know, to showcase how smart they are.
