(Top 16 NFL Draft Selections)

1-1) The Cincinnati Bengals select QB Joe Burrow, LSU

  • The Bengals grab a bonafied franchise QB.



The Atlanta Falcons have traded: 


  • The 16th overall pick in the 2020 1st Round (1000 points)
  • The 47th overall pick in the 2020 2nd Round (430 points)
  • The 78th overall pick in the 2020 3rd Round (200 points)

  • Their 2021 2nd Round Pick (270 points)
  • Their 2021 3rd Round Pick (116 points)
  • = 2606 points

1-2) (From Washington) The Atlanta Falcons select DE Chase Young, Ohio State

  • 5e9e263bcd3cc.image.jpg?resize=1200,800
  • The Falcons grab arguably the top player in the draft, and hope he is a generational talent, like the "Julio Jones" of Edge Rushers. As we saw with the 49ers last season, drafting a rookie pass rusher took their defense to the next level. The Falcons, their front office, and the fans could badly use a jolt to take their team to the next level this season.

1-3) The Detroit Lions select CB Jeffrey Okudah, Ohio State

  • The Detroit Lions grab an elite cornerback to boost their secondary after losing Slay.

1-4) The New York Giants select OT Jedrick Wills Jr., Alabama

  • The Giants hope to have found a franchise offensive tackle to protect Jones.

1-5) The Miami Dolphins select QB Tua Tagovailoa, Alabama

  • The Dolphins get their "Tank for Tua" target, even at 5; they hope his health doesn't complicate his career.

1-6) The Los Angeles Chargers select OT Tristan Wirfs, Iowa

  • The Chargers need to get better along the offensive line for their rebuild, post-Rivers. 

1-7) The Carolina Panthers select LB Isaiah Simmons, Clemson

  • The Panthers get the heir to Luke Keuchly, continue to prioritize their defense.

1-8) The Arizona Cardinals select OLB K’Lavon Chaisson, LSU

  • The Cardinals get a talented edge threat to attack quarterbacks.

1-9) The Jacksonville Jaguars select DT Derrick Brown, Auburn

  • The Jaguars hope Brown can take them back to defensive dominance.

1-10) The Cleveland Browns select OT Andrew Thomas, Georgia

  • The Browns want to give Mayfield all the help he can get at this point.

1-11) The New York Jets select WR CeeDee Lamb, Oklahoma

  • The Jets hope to have grabbed an elite number one wide receiver for Darnold.

1-12) The Las Vegas Raiders select CB C.J. Henderson, Florida

  • The Raiders continue to add talented youth to their rebuild, take a covet-worthy cornerback here.

1-13) The San Francisco 49ers select DT Javon Kinlaw, South Carolina

  • The 49ers replenish their strength along the defensive line, after sending Buckner packing.

1-14) The Tampa Bay Buccaneers select OT Mekhi Becton, Louisville

  • The Buccaneers will attempt to give Brady everything he needs to succeed.

1-15) The Denver Broncos select WR Henry Ruggs III, Alabama

  • The Broncos add a speedy deep threat to Sutton and Fant, and hope Lock can take the next step.

1-16) (From Atlanta) The Washington Redskins select WR Jerry Jeudy, Alabama

  • The Redskins select a very talented running mate to help Haskins and McLaurin. 



4-119) The Atlanta Falcons select CB Kindle Vildor, Georgia Southern

  • Dvw0q-QUUAA2SiK.jpg
  • A talented, speedy and productive cornerback from a less prestigious school, the Falcons hope to have found a hometown gem to boost their young secondary.

4-134) The Atlanta Falcons select C/OG Tyler Biadasz, Wisconsin

  • Biadasz.jpg?fit=1200,800&ssl=1
  • A quality starter when healthy, an injury led to a surgery that he didn't bounce back very well from last year; a good risk here in the 4th, and if he can regain prior form, he could be a starter for years.

7-216) (From Washington) The Atlanta Falcons select SS/LB Tanner Muse, Clemson

  • 1196444826.jpeg
  • Muse was a productive playmaker, albeit a "tweener", for a high-flying program; he will get the opportunity to develop his speed as a project at linebacker and work on special teams early.

7-228) The Atlanta Falcons select FS Luther Kirk, Illinois State

  • FB_11_17_18_216.JPG
  • A well-regarded captain of his team, this twitchy ball-hawk has good range from the free safety position; will need some coaching to refine his tackling and coverage techniques, but he could prove useful, even if he ends up being just a speedy special teamer.

7-229) (From Washington) The Atlanta Falcons select C/OG Calvin Throckmorton, Oregon

  • Calvin-Throckmorton_Craig-Strobeck.jpg
  • The definition of a "jack-of-all-trades", "do-it-all" offensive lineman, he is a very smart player and a popular teammate; worth  taking here in the 7th to see what he can become at the NFL level with some hard-effort and coaching.

"Atlanta looks to be a popular destination for un-drafted free agents and the team should look to be active recruiting young and hungry rookie competition..."

Put faces to the trade.. Are you saying you wouldn't trade Takk, Duke Riley, Harlow, Ridley, Oliver and Senat for Young? 

I'd do that in a heartbeat... Some of these cats isn't even on the team anymore. 

Would you trade Lindstrom, Ridley, Oliver, Hooper, Senat, Foye for Young?


Shoot, would you trade Grady & 16th for Young?

I would do option 1 in a heartbeat... None of those are foundation players

The allure of Young is putting him on the line with Jarrett and Fowler, not replacing him. 

For some reason the notion of draft picks in these discussions seem to value more than the players actually selected. So six draft picks seems crippling but in reality it's not. Plus, if you have a core defense with Jarrett, Young, Jones and Fowler that will allow ball hawks like Kazee to flourish

Add Young, Got us a potential C. Got Tanner Muse...  another Clemson player that is going to exceed his draft rating; I like him here as either SS in the box role or in the LB role. Think he can do either one. I'm not a fan of Vildor; his film shows a guy that makes a lot of 'business decisions' on the field and he has holes in his coverage skills (lesser talented version of CJ Henderson to me). Good job overall.
