Common traits for Falcons draft picks


Recommended Posts

Not the whole truth though.

They didn't pick just athletes this year. They picked guys with urgency and passion for the game with good mental makeup and intangibles. Quinn and TD haven't prioritized that in the past. Seems like they have this year.

They also picked three guys (Davidson, Walker, Hawkins) with some crazy in them.

Desire and “want to” mean a lot.

Whatever it takes to rid the locker room of the culture/attitude that led to the 1-7 record to start last year

That was 90% on Quinn for having absolutely no clue what type of defense he was trying to build, leaving his players lost, literally lost, on the field the first half of the season.

What picks 2-4 have in common? They are all very good, yet versatile.

Davidson- could play DE on run downs or spell Davison at DT

Hennessy- drafted at Center, but could start at guard

Walker- can play inside as well as stand up LB, also a ST ace

Hawkins- started out on offense as WR, then corner, then safety . 

This should not be overlooked! Too many times an injury completely paralyses a position for us. These picks, not as flashy as some of us would like, make us a better football team

When asked what Dimitroff likes about any of his picks, Dimitroff states athletic, big, fast, ideal size, etc. 

Cares more about prototypical  size and speed rather than actual football skills.

That's not necessarily a bad thing as long as they are football players and know what they are doing, you miss the Smitty era where we had slow plodding players that couldn't make other rosters?

Who are the short, fat players with "actual football skills" that td is snubbing?

And the winner for worst draft post goes to the guy who doesn’t understand a thing about the evaluation process. WoW!

C’mon man, at least wait & see rather than troll the picks like a miserable wretch.

 

Been here long enough to know they drafted similar “prototypical athletes or Size” with limited football instincts, see below. 
 

3rd rounder Desmond Southward

3rd rounder Duke Riley

2nd rounder Jalen Collins

3rd rounder Lamar Holmes

3rd rounder Akeem Dent. 
 

I’m not saying the current draft class will suck but pointing out what Dimitroff says about his picks.

Southward, Collins, Riley and Holmes were all projects. Dent was a play it safe pick. 
 

I dont think any of our picks are projects as of today. They all played a ton of college snaps and multiple positions (except Terrell).

They all are extremely intelligent and instinctual.

None of them are "Raw" as a prospect
