It's something about our Falcons that don't sign these players, and some of the best talent in the NFL Today and years past. I'm asking our fans....why is that?

Do you see us drafting finally....Bulldog players this coming draft? Fran Tarkenton called us " stupid" for not doing so. I would have to agree with him.

Are we soo incompetent like myself, to not sign them with Bill Belichump coming to Atlanta and swooping them up? Geez! Keep that guy outta here!

I think on UGA pro day the Falcons didnt even have scouts present. Maybe they will have someone there this year. I have to imagine they will with the best non-QB player in the draft (Andrew Thomas) coming out of UGA. And if LeCounte comes out we definately need to be there. LeCounte is a better Safety than Delpit and he will be available when we pick 37.

Bill Belichick gives Georgia football and Kirby Smart a big-time recruiting pitch

In recent years, Belichick has taken to drafting or signing a number of Georgia players. He signed David Andrews after the 2015 NFL Draft; Andrews has since gone on to become one of the best centers in the league. In 2018, he drafted two Bulldogs — Isaiah Wynn and Sony Michel — in the first round.

And while speaking at Super Bowl Media Day, Belichick explained why he’s grown so fond of Georgia players.

“I think Kirby’s program is excellent to prepare guys for the National Football League, Belichick said.  The way they practice, the way they prepare and hold each other accountable. It's certainly similar and consistent with what we try to do."

It is REAL! I've seen on ESPN a few years ago they asked TD why he doesn't draft the Dawgs. Not because they are local but if they can help?  Tell me at RB could we have used either Gurley, Chubb or Sony? Now N E and future HOF BB thought enough of GT's Shaq Mason who has started at OG and was a 4th rounder GT and against us in the SB they started undrafted Dawg Center David Andrews (I know Andrews is injured now but he might could have been Mack's replacement) OT Harrison Wynn when not injured maybe could have given us another OT. LB'S Carter, Raquan and  Ogletree, though not great are better than some of the people we have. Mecole Hardemen told friends he wanted to play for us. The  point is TD is playing games, he has a preference to players from the Northeast.  It is a  Undeniable pattern.  He and DQ are so stubborn and won't move from their ways. It might could have made a difference (maybe) to us going to the SB

Its funny I'm a huge Bulldog fan since the 70's but can only remember a few times being really pissed they didn't draft a Bulldog #1 was they draft WR Jammi German in the 3rd round with WR Hines Ward on the board. Jammi German!!!! LOL

Jammi Stats G 35 Rec 20 Yds 294 TD 3

Hines Ward  G 217 Rec 1000 Yds 12083 TD 85

Then, of course, was the Herschel draft where the Cowboys drafted him in the 5th round in 85 while the Falcons drafted the forgettable Emile Harry WR from Stanford. Falcons were atrocious drafting Herschel would have at least energized the fan base, not to mention what Dallas got by trading him. Or by the Falcons trading the then star RB Gerald Riggs .

Certainly their stock has been improved by none other than Dante Scharneccia

It actually is a fair question regardless of.anyone's opinion. Personally I.dont.care where it.comes from as long as it's talent, but I'd much rather get it from.UGA than LSU

It's definitely fair, but that won't stop anyone from crying about homerism, even though some on here have actually watched these guys.

Tell it like it is bro.  They're all over the nfl & have a nice hit rate coming out of UGA, oftentimes outperforming their draft position.  We could use a few dawgs on our roster.
