I am typically all about pass rush, but looking at how flaccid our stacked offense is, we desperately need to get our running game going again.  I like Hill and Ollie, but I don't see either as anything more than change of pace backs.

Let’s think about something.

3 of the 5 Falcons oline are 1st round picks.  The other guy is a high priced FA and they spent big in FA for the other guard spot.

When it comes to investing in the run game there’s not much more they can do.

We can get a good RB in the 2nd or 3rd or sign one as a FA. Freeman needs to be cut.

Give me an adequate and competent OC, watch the run game come alive.  I'm ok with taking a RB in mid to late rd's, but I want to fix this defense.  The offense has been Koetter'd and can be corrected with the right caller who understands his personnel and how to utilize them.

Yeah, Koetter is definitely going to hamstring our running game.

It just seems like under this regime, we are pouring alot of early picks and FA cap into our lines and have treated RB as an afterthought.  The league seems to be readjusting again and the RB position is becoming a more vital peace (particularly against defenses that are getting smaller). 

Just feels like it is time to spend atleast one offseason to polishing off some of that neglect.

Get rid of Free, draft another RB to go along with Hill and Ollie.

If we move on from Dirk, I'm fine with keeping Free and I think he will be fine in another scheme.  If we don't then we need to move on from Free because he doesn't work in Dirks' scheme.  Didn't in 2014 as a rookie, hasn't in 2019 either.

We took Lindstrom at 14 and he was considered a 2nd rd pick. If we are picking 14-17 I know Brown and Simmons are gone. I would take the best LG in Shane Lemieux and then Marvin Wilson 2nd. Or even Gallimore 2nd if he is there. But LG is an issue.
Some say Gono but he can’t beat out Schweitzer evidently. If they took Lindstrom at14 I would definitely take Lemieux to hold down LG. We can still get a good DT round 2.

I think Gono has not learned LG yet.  He’s learned 3 spots so far.  I’ve said Gono on the left side is his best side.  I think he will crush it at LG.  He was a man among boys in the 1 game he played RG.  Play Gonobeast.  He’s been ready.  Wasting $ going anything ol in draft except for a young C maybe.  Plug the holes elsewhere.  But Falcons have to consider finding a future Qb as well.  Burrows is good!

We do need pass rush help, but our OL is still the weakest area on the team.  Can't pass protect, can't run block.  Just terrible.  Lindstrom showed a lot of promise, but Mack is getting old, Matthews is just slightly above average, LG is a trainwreck and McGary has a way to go.   I wouldn't be at all upset if we double dipped on the OL again this year like we did last year.  I know everyone will completely disagree, but we need OL help desperately.   Look at the long runs the Saints and NE have been on.   One constant for those teams is rock solid OL play.
