This board is hilarious. 

If this question was asked before the draft it would have been 90% Wilkins/Baker and 10% Lindstrom/McGary... 

We pick them and it magically changed everyone's opinion. If you would have said we're spending our 1st 3 picks on 2 OL people would have called it ridiculous

I get WHY the Falcons made their picks.  You have to have solid lines on both sides of the ball to be elite.  The reason I don't like the direction they went is the fact they could've had Christian Wilkins and Deandre Baker instead.  If you can move back into the first round to draft McGary you can move back into it and grab Baker at the bottom of the first round.  Lindstrom and McGary may or may not become pro bowlers or solid starters but my thinking is it means nothing if you can't stop anybody. 

Baker played in the SEC and was a true shut down corner that knows HOW to play he position.  He was rated the number 1 defensive back in the draft.  Wilkins graded slightly higher by the pros and would have fit nicely next to Grady as the " attack" tackle in that 4-3 under that Quinn runs.  I REALLY don't get the Falcons.  They could've had TWO of the best rated defenders in the draft and immediately transformed that defense but instead went the safe route and patched the offensive line up.  Again, it doesn't matter if you can't stop anybody.  What makes this look bad is the fact that both players were reachable with minor trades but instead the Falcons REACHED on the offensive line.  

And still allowed Matt to get sacked another 42 times we win thru Matt we sustain the lead thru the defense. So if Matt can't put up points because of poor protection we don't win. Simply put. Also we reached for the best Guard and Top 5 Tackle.

Of course it would have.  Those were more popular players around here predraft, but doesn't make it right.  It seems people are looking more into the players we picked and finding things they like.  That's a far better approach to this than deciding that you hate the picks because they weren't the guys you wanted, but there's plenty of that here too.

Because neither player was available where we picked, dude. It's a non issue. We would have had to trade up for both, even from where we did pick.

It's like if the thread asked if we'd rather have Ed Oliver and Andre Dillard. Like...that's cool and all, but how?

The OP asked which players would you rather have. I think it's disingenuous for folks laud these 2 players with our 1st 3 picks now that our team has drafted them when they'd half lost their minds if it was suggested before the draft. 

I can't go off someone else's scouting. I trust my own eye. I think there were better players available. That's just my position. I might be wrong,  but what I won't do is pretend I like a move solely because my team makes it.

That's not the question. The OP is asking who you'd rather have and I'm answering honestly.  I'd rather have Wilkins/Baker. 

That's not considering the fact that TD said himself that multiple teams called with interest in trading down from 6-12. So we absolutely could have drafted Oliver or Wilkins.

Then spend more draft picks to draft Baker too?

Look, we all know the OPs underlying whiney motive, that's why no one wants to play this game of unrealistic revisionist history.

I mean think about it. We spent 1-3 on 2 OLinemen. We could have packaged our 3rd to move up to #12 and got Wilkins. Getting Baker would have been difficult and probably cost too much. But Wilkins and Justin Layne was totally possible

You know, I've thought about it, and I think it'll be easier to just go grab a Publix sub than cook tonight.

Seems like the typical "TATF didn't like this and now TATF does" stuff as if everyone shares the same opinions around here.  Personally, I didn't know much about our first round picks predraft as I thought we'd go a different direction.  As I've learned more about them, I view them more positively. 

If you looked into them in depth predraft and decided you don't like them, that's fine, but it's not fair to assume everyone did and is now being disingenuous.

Again, that’s not what I’m saying. This board was clamoring for Oliver. Then when it became apparent we’d have to trade up considerably to get him everyone wanted Wilkins. I don’t believe that there was a cataclysmic shift in approval for Wilkins over just about every prospect outside of the ones we KNEW would be gone by our pick because the team picked an O-Lineman. I saw maybe one guy on this entire forum wanted at #14.

Yet this poll has the Board wanting Lindstrom/McGary over Wilkins/Baker at almost 80/20?? 

I call BS. This is why some folks just call guys homers. Because few here have the stones to be honest and the ones that do are vilified. I can’t just blindly agree with a pick because our team made it.
