Updated to add Harold Landry.

Anyone know of anyone else we've met with in the last couple days?

Well, we'll meet with Calvin Ridley sometime in next day or two.

:rolleyes:

Go to the Falcons site and watch the latest video of Quinn and TD speaking about the Ridley pick.

They said we did meet with Ridley, but apparently it was kept secret and not made public.

As I said earlier, this was a possibility.

This is per the interview that TD and Quinn just gave where they confirmed they will not pick anyone in rounds 1-4 that they haven't held a private workout/meeting with.

The only other possibility is that this list is incomplete and there are additional guys they have worked out that for whatever reason have not been reported or made public.  Which is, of course, a strong possibility that some of their private workouts have not been made public.

And Ridley fell into this category.

At the 2:10-2:26 mark, TD confirms that Ridley met with and worked out for our scouts.

Some how this didn't go public, though.

Only goes public if someone says something. Wonder if they asked  Ridley to keep quiet?

Beef, you got time to let us know how the falcons met with the 2nd-3rd round DT prospects before we get to our picks?

As far as has been reported publicly, these are the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th round meetings we've had.  Obviously we have no way of knowing where these guys are on our big board, so these are just guesses as to what rounds they might be picked.

And again, this list could be incomplete and we met with players that have not been reported publicly.  Obviously the Ridley pick proved this is quite possible... maybe even probable.

 

2nd round possibilities:

EDGE Harold Landry, Boston College  (probably going early 2nd)
CB Isaiah Oliver, Colorado  (probably going early 2nd)
WR Dante Pettis, Washington  (probably not since we got Ridley)
RB Ronald Jones II, USC
RB Nick Chubb, Georgia
DL B.J. Hill, N.C. State  (could fall to 3rd round)
DL Nathan Shepherd, Fort Hays State  (could fall to 3rd round)
OC James Daniel, Iowa  (probably going early 2nd)
OG Braden Smith, Auburn


3rd round possibilities:

DL Breeland Speaks, Mississippi
DL P.J. Hall, Sam Houston State  (could fall to 4th round)
DL R.J. McIntosh, Miami
DL Folorunso Fatukasi, Connecticut  (could fall to 4th round)
OT Tyrell Crosby, Oregon
OT Brandon Parker, North Carolina A&T
RB Kalen Ballage, Arizona State  (could fall to 4th round)
RB Nyheim Hines, N.C. State  (could fall to 4th round)
TE Ian Thomas, Indiana  (could fall to 4th round)


4th round possibilities:

WR Keke Coutee, Texas Tech  (probably not since we got Ridley)
WR DaeSean Hamilton, Penn State  (probably not since we got Ridley)
WR Deontay Burnett, USC  (probably not since we got Ridley)
CB D.J. Reed, Kansas State
CB Grant Haley, Penn State
FB Jaylen Samuels, N.C. State
LB Dorian O’Daniel, Clemson
LB Jack Cichy, Wisconsin
LB Fred Warner, BYU
LB Genard Avery, Memphis
DL Deadrin Senat, South Florida
TE Troy Fumagalli, Wisconsin

Thanks ,but what I meant to ask for is the details of the meetings with the DT prospects. Wondering if they had 2 meeting for example with one, and just had a senior bowl conversation with another. Just looking for clues who they value.

Bump this thread.  I love it!

We have drafted two first round talents.  We have not been slaves to team needs.  

This is what a strong roster and confident leaders can do to a draft!

Yes, didn't waste picks by trading up, didn't reach in either round, found good guys that had dropped because of the way that the draft broke. 

Great draft so far. Bet that they still double dip on DT.

I wonder why Senat was predicted so late 

Same reasons Grady fell really... a lot of folks have the idea that these guys are too short to fit anything but a 4-3 nose. So 3-4 teams have no real use for him, nor do 4-3 teams looking for someone they can occasionally kick over to DE to give different looks.

When the number of teams that could actually use a player is small, that player falls because the demand just isn't there like it is for guys that are considered good fits for multiple looks/positions.

McIntosh, but probably needs a season before he is really ready.

I prefer Settle if he can stay dedicated to Pro conditioning.

Seems ridiculous that some more teams haven’t caught up to this inefficiency by now though.

You'd think so but then again there will always be trends in the NFL and half the teams will be leading the way on those trends while the other half is still clinging to antiquated ideas & wondering why they aren't winning.

Im just thinking about leverage.  Probably makes oline uncomfortable trying to block guys this short. Only down fall i see is not batting balls down, but how often do you see that in the nfl even with tall d linemen?

We should just keep drafting short strong DT bowling balls then. No need to waste money in FA
