Mock Your First 3 Rounds:

138 posts in this topic

This is a big offseason & draft the Falcons have coming up.  So there has been lots of intelligent debate on who we should draft and what position should be prioritized.  So put your name on the first 3 Rounds.  No trades allowed;

 

•  1st Round, 4th Overall: LSU - Grant Delpit 
       *  Analysis: I almost pulled the trigger on Okudah because I believe boundary corner will be our biggest need of Trufant is gone.  But the defense lacks a playmaker.  It lacks a tone setter.  It lacks a game changer.  Delpit checks all the boxes, especially if we keep a single high safety look.  Delpit plays like Darwin James with unique size for the position

 

•  2nd Round, 36th Overall: Boise State: Curtis Weaver

      •  Analysis: We miss our on Chase Young sweepstakes but settle for someone very dynamic in his own right.  His career stats, in the same number of games, eclipse those of Young.  He averaged over 1 TFL per game and nearly 1 sack per game for his career.  Consistently disruptive since Day 1. 32 sacks and 42 TFL in 34 games

 

•. 2nd Round, 63rd Overall: Clemson - AJ Terrell

    • Analysis: I almost went flash with Etienne (surprised most projections have him mid to late 2nd) but our need at CB is too great.  The position in today’s NFL is too important to not prioritize it every single draft.  Terrell is a long and talented 5 star corner who many believe will end up the best NFL corner after Okunda.  
 

•  3rd Round, 67th Overall: Ohio State - Malik Harrison

     • Analysis:  very physical LB who is an opportunist.  Very smart.  A Belichick kind of player who simply does his job.

Yeah no secondary help is gonna matter if the opposing QB has enough time to steep some mafckin tea in the pocket

This draft is all about DL

Weaver is a disruptive monster.  Has played at 300 pounds & 260 pounds.  Pay attention to #99

Round 1: Bust

Round 3: Traded to move back into Round 2 to reach for a Bust.

I’m referring to the safety and corner you think would fix this D (they wouldn’t).

I mean, who do you want at corner for us next year?  Oliver #1 and who beside him?  Who at SS?  Who at NB?  Our secondary is the biggest concern in my opinion.

Do you watch the games? You could have Deion Sanders at CB1, 2, 3 and both Safety spots. Would not matter if the QB and WRs have all day to throw/get open.

We have 6 sacks in 8 games bro. How can you evalaute anything about our secondary given the current situation? Pass rush is EASILY our #1 concern with or without Trufant. Give Sheffield and Oliver a chance when they don't have to cover for 12 seconds a play and see the difference. Both have shown glimpses but are set-up to fail with this pass rush.

Do you think a DL of Grady, Takk, Clay, Bailey, Crawford, Beasley, Cominsky, Davison lacks talent or lacks proper coaching/scheme?

Half of those names won't be on the team next year.

Both. Outside of Grady none of those names have done anything spectacular both here or anywhere else.

Crawford & Bailey we’re both solid B players last year.  Clay was a B player the last 2 years.  Vic was an All Pro.  Takk first rounder who many projected would get 10 sacks and be our Breakout Player of Year.  Is talent really the issue on the DL?

1st Derrick brown DT Auburn

2nd Curtis weaver de bois state

2nd jake Hansen c/g oregon

3rd chubba Hubbard rb Oklahoma state

 

I know in reaching for derrick brown but maybe we trade down to say 6 or 7 to select him and pick up an extra 2nd but we need help on the trenches as grady is on life support and we find the heir to Alex mack

If we get Brown & Weaver with our first 2 picks, I would be very happy.  Don't know much about the other two...

@FalconsIn2012  you are on fire - and not in a good way! :o

LOL...my Trae Young takes on Hawks forum have been on point.

What don’t you like about It those 4 picks?  I trust your eye for evaluation.  Tell me why they aren’t solid picks for us?  
 

Bear in mind, Young isn’t on the board when we picked so he could not be selected.

The two guys I'd like to land based on our slot...

 

Derrick Brown, DT, Auburn

D'Andre Swift , RB, UGA (even if it requires some kind of trade to move up a few spots)

And Bailey and Clay are very likely. That leaves what? Takk and Grady? You say we have no starter at cb when we cut Tru which might not even happen, well Beasley is a much more likely to be gone than Tru so who's the starting de? We don't have one.

I would like Edge, CB/Safety, LB in that order but would also look at BPA on the defensive side of the ball at each pick. F the offense getting any picks this draft.

I would have Takk, Weaver & Clay as my DE’s in 2020.

I would try and move up for Chase Young - dangle the Patriots/Sanu 2nd rounder which was a gift pick - and if that didn’t work, probably would trade back a few spots and take Derrick Brown.

If couldn’t trade up or back, then I probably just take Derrick Brown at 4/5 or whatever our pick would be.   There should be a decent corner in early 2nd round.
