397 posts in this topic

MODS COULD YOU PLEASE UN-PIN THE 2017 POST AND PIN THIS ONE!

 

So for 3 years now I have made a thread dedicated to the scouts looking at players for the upcoming draft. 

You may Post here and update findings on players the Falcons have visited, scouted, and any info you may find on social media so we can get a better idea about what the Falcons are looking for.

 

I will be listing them by position below. I will also do Vids on players we are looking at on my YouTube channel if they are heavily scouted by the Falcons draft team.

A berth in the SEC Championship Game will be at stake on Saturday when Alabama visits Auburn for the 82nd edition of the annual Iron Bowl. Scouts from seven NFL clubs will be on hand to watch the bitter rivalry with more of a long-term eye, specifically for future NFL drafts.

0ap3000000877356.jpg

Among the top draft prospects to watch include Alabama DT Da'Ron Payne, DB Minkah Fitzpatrick and WR Calvin Ridley, while the Tigers will feature QB Jarrett Stidham, OG Braden Smith, the SEC's leading rusher in RB Kerryon Johnson, as well as one of the nation's elite kickers in Daniel Carlson.

Here's the list of teams credentialed to attend, per Auburn:

» Falcons 
» Bills 
» Browns 
» Colts 
» Rams 
» Raiders 
» Steelers

They forgot about CB Carlton Davis from Auburn

Exactly what I was thinking. Seems they are thinking about life after Ryan.

Tbh, I'd be down with this. He's been falling on a lot of draft boards (like, falling to late 2nd and sometimes even worse) but I still think NFL teams probably have high 1st round grades on him. But if he does fall...he reminds me a bit of Favre or Roethlisberger when he's on...with ugly shades of Paxton Lynch when he's off. Coming in and being able to sit with Ryan ahead of him for a few years would be terrific. Set us up long term. He has all the potential in the world. Good character and maybe the best arm in the draft, especially on the run. Evades pressure, keeps his eyes downfield...needs to slide more/have better ball security, and people will hate some of the gunslinger mentality, but I love his playstyle.

I know that won't be a popular opinion, though.

I see him as a less polished version of Andrew Luck, but maybe with a stronger arm. 

I think he ultimately ends up as a top 10 pick. He could even go #1, as his upside is higher than the likes of Rosen and Darnold

If Blank was there in Miami I would assume they were scouting coaches???

Looks like they have multiple scouting visits for solid prospects at the following:

Notre Dame - OL

Ohio State - OL, DL, DB

NCST - Chubb & TE

Oklahoma - OL & TE

LSU - Defense

UGA - Defense

Louisville - 3 visits? CB?

If I had to pick one from this as far as a 1st rd pick, I would say Ohio State and Billy Price.

Agree. With so many teams in dire need of a QB, I think he’ll be out of our reach.

For the record I'm not saying we should pick him or any QB for that matter. Jokingly I stated that there was no one on that Wyoming team outside of Allen worth watching on 5 separate occasions.

I do like Allen though. I prerer him over both Josh Rosen and Sam Darnold.

Just finished watching Allen. He's Matt Ryan except he has much more mobility and escapability. He's the perfect heir apparent to Ryan. If they took him in the 1st, I wouldn't be mad.

I definitely would be open to doing it if he were still there in late 2nd. But I seriously doubt he gets out of round 1.

It's a Falcons don't resign dontari Poe then I would be looking at Vita Vea. But as of right now there are no visits to any of the Washington games this season by the Falcons scouting Department. Maybe there will be more activity during the off-season.

Josh Allen huh? That’s weird. If he falls, it’ll be the best for him to sit for a long time behind a very good QB. I don’t like him, but he’s got the tools. If he is given the keys to a franchise, I have very little doubt he will be a huge bust. But he could be something here. Now if we drafted Lamar Jackson, who we have seen at Louiseville, I’d be over the moon. 

I really like Fumagalli from Wisconsin. He’s a pretty good blocker and has great hands. He’d let us dump Toilolo’s contract and get a much better receiver.

I hope we get an OG in the FA. Would rather not have to wait for him to develop.

Unless it’s Quentin Nelson. The kid is as good as I’ve seen. So good that we might have to do a Julio type trade to get up that high. That’s not going to happen, nor do I want it to. But the fact that a guard is that highly regarded says a lot. Tbh, I’m fine rolling with what we have a guard. It worked fine, and there’s only a couple guys I’ve seen so far that I think could set in and do better.
