Lt Dan's Off-season 2.0


Recommended Posts

Not a draft wizard or Mock genius. Just thought a fun Mock with off-season would be fun to show the peeps. Took inspiration from some peeps here. Let me know if you hate it or like it. Some of it seems silly and some can be done IMO.

 

CUTS

Brooks Reed – Cap space      - Dead >$1,880,000 / Free >$3,560,000

Matt Schaub – Cap Space     - Dead >$1,250,000 / Free >$3,250,000

After cuts $33,555,070m

 

Extentions

 

Matt Ryan – New 5-year $121,650,000 contract with 2018 number added per year.

Per year number First year 2018 cap hit 10.8m at 21.8m a year

 

CAP – 42,555,070m

 

Jake Matthews – New 4-year 48,000,000 contract. 8m cap hit 2018

 

Vic Beasley – New 5-year $35,000,000 contract. $5,612,118 cap hit 2018

 

DT Grady Jerrett NEW CONTRACT –  6 years, $72,000,000 - $4m 2018 cap hit (current 2018 cap hit IRL is just under $2m)

 

Tevin Coleman - New 5-year 42,000,000 contract - 2018 hit 4,202,500.

 

Cap $39,109,198

 

Free Agents

Needs as of March 14 – LG, RG, QB (Back-up), WR, TE, DT, DE, SLB, CB, FS

 

Kemal Ishmael – 1m or so

Ahtyba Rubin – 1m or so

LaRoy Reynolds – 1m or so

Ricardo Allen – 2,916,000m

Matt Bryant - 1,015,000m

Dontari Poe – 5 years $40,000,000. Cap hit 6m

 

Cap after Falcons resigns - $26,178,198 or so with some slight changes I believe.

 

Needs – LG, RG, QB ( Back-up ), WR, TE, DT, DE, SLB, CB, FB

 

Free agents from other teams

 

Michael Bennett – 3 years 21,000,000 – Cap hit 2018 4m ( After June first signing )

WR Sammy Watkins 5 yr(s) / $36,500,000 – 8m 2018 cap hit.

OL Justin Pugh - 4 years, $24 million - $4m 2018 cap hit.

TE Austin Sefarian-Jenkins – 2 years, $7 million - $3m 2018 cap hit.

Patrick DiMarco 4 year, $8,000,000 – Cap hit 2018 2m ( After June first signing )

 

Just under 6m ( 5178198 ) but some changes could be done. Nothing here is super crazy and most of it seems to fit the talk around the fan bases talking about cuts atm.

 

DRAFT – Needs after FA – RG, QB ( Back-up ), DT, SLB, CB, DE

 

2018 NFL DRAFT

1st - Taven Bryan, DT, Florida ( will start at 3tech for Atlanta with Poe rotating in with him. Gives Falcons future star next to Grady even if we don’t sign Poe back or do and ease him in )

2nd - Kameron Kelly, CB, San Diego State ( Going to go high 3rd or low 2nd and we find a guy to replace Collins )

3rd - Duke Ejiofor, DE, Wake Forest ( Torn labrum knocks him down almost to 4th round )

4th - Tyrell Crosby, OT / OG, Oregon ( The new LG if Pugh takes RG )

5th – NONE ( BOOOO )

6th – Ryan Nall, FB / RB, Oregon State ( Luxury pick and ward replacement  )

7th - Michael Joseph, CB , Dubuque ( Adds a potential slot guy and playmaker with very little depth at CB )

I like where you are going and its very aggresive. I think you are probably spot on for Grady, but I don't think there is anyway that Vic signs for 7M/yr. I think that is going to be closer to 10 then 7. Also, it seems like you are backloading all of those contracts to save space in 2018 which we clearly need to be this aggressive, but I don't know how plausible that would be for being able to do anything for 2019/2020. It will be interesting to see if Blank goes up to TD and tells him to go for it this off season thinking that we may be on the backend of the 4-5yr championship window that usually occurs. 

For 2019 and 2020 we would have 24 and 30 something million respectively if I read that correctly on over the cap after doing these numbers.

It's a very aggressive 2018 Mock and free agency that allows the Falcons to back load a bunch of contracts ( Very TD like ).

I'm not sure all your contracts work out in the real world but, that mock is a thing of beauty.

The only thing I don't think you've accounted for is a replacement for Schaub. Unless your rolling with Chris Sims.

If we pulled off something like this the team would be vastly better.

Lot of moving parts LT.Dan also love your work with Voch Lombardi and I got a say I'm really warming to the Tavern Bryan pick I like him a lot.

Kog see even he's got Sammy Watkins.

I love Christian Kirk myself I still think the Falcons need to find a way to get him on this team.

Thanks man I really appreciate that. Watch and I work together on a lot of stuff and had been partners in crime for a while.

 

Taven would be a stud with Atlanta. Not being biased as a Clemson fan but Sammy needs to be a falcon.

 

Christian Kirk might be a little difficult if we aren't looking at Julio Jones age as a factor. But an exciting player none the less.

I try. Not a draft or free agency wizard, but if Falcons even did half of this I think I'd be happy.

I just hope we get some real talent. Some forget, but every team in the league is working to get better, not just us, so its a lot more than fixing holes. Its making your overall team better.

What pass-rusher would you go after?

I still think that either Davenport or Key will be available. I don't think that both will go before 26. If (by chance) they are both gone, then I believe that either Payne or Vea will fall. After doing a few full first-round drafts, I just think that at least one of those four is going to be there. There may be two of them available then, and I would always choose the pass rusher first. In the end, interior linemen are always easier to find, and a ton cheaper.

 

If all four of those guys are gone, Bryan would definitely be the guy.

I don't understand the infatuation with key since he's more of a Vic Beasley type, but I can see your train of thought with all the other guys.

I don't think he's a Beasley type at all. At 6'5", he's of the Aldon Smith/Danielle Hunter/ Jevon Kearse type. I think he's much more imposing at the point of attack. People think that he's just a speed guy, but the tape shows a lot more (particularly the 2016 tape).

Chuck Smith called Key "The best pass rusher from the SEC in the last 15 years". That's a big statement.

Moreover, Key and Davenport are basically the same size (6'5" 260lb), so physically there is little difference.

That's why I think they won't look at either guy with th Takk and Beasley moving more to DE I don't see the Coaches going DE myself.Reed could possibly be asked to back these 2 up.

Takk and Beasley are the future at DE for the Falcons.

I like this mock alot but are you assuming Dimarco is cut already from the Bills? Would love to have him back.

ASJ is the TE I want out of the free agents. 

There's a very good chance ,coming from the Bills fans and media, that DiMarco will get cut since he only played 25% of snaps all year and the current front office has made it clear they have frowned upon the double fullback purchase that the previous regime made.

 

It would be safe to assume ,to save the most money, that the bills would cut DiMarco after June 1st.

I think after watching a video you put out, I'm now big on Sammy Watkins. I really would be happy with that free agent class you put there. Sefarian-Jenkins always seemed to give the Falcons a lot of trouble.

Like a lot of us, you are thinking that signing a FA guard and drafting another is the way to go. But unlike a lot of us, you have Tyrell Crosby in the 4th instead of Isaiah Wynn in the 1st. I'd sure like a guard to leapfrog Schweitzer and improve the line whether it is Wynn, Crosby or even a new and much improved Wes.

And now I am looking forward to what Alex Gray can do.

I watched Key some last year and he was dominate when I saw him.
