Most well connected Falcons reporter thinks...


Recommended Posts

Tony Pauline knew about Keanu before it happened, Takk trade up, Fowler signing, Daron Payne near trade up, and much more over the years.  If theres anyone to listen too, then uts him. He says QB is a real possibility at 4.

I know its not crazy news, but says a lot considering the source. However, there is a chance his connections to the organization left with the TD regime. Either way, I think it may be Trade down at 4, or Lance.

He could just say, "I don't know."  Pretty much what he is saying here:

What are you hearing in regards to which direction Atlanta will go in Round 1? Are they finally ready to invest a first-round pick in a quarterback?

From what I hear, there is a very real possibility they take a quarterback with their first pick. You’ve got a new coach and a new general manager as well as an aging quarterback.

Pauline had Tavern Bryan as Falcons pick in 2018. 

OP when was he reliable, like 5 years ago?

In his defense, everyone and their mother was reporting our interest in Bryan lol. Thank god it was all BS and we got Ridley instead.

Didn't he fall to almost end of the first round. I was watching him fall that year after falcons picked Ridley . lol.

TBF, him knowing things about the Falcons in the past, means very little when we have a new FO

Also, this report is from almost a month ago, right after FA started

Finally, this isn't him stating that he's heard we're taking a QB or even that we might. The quote states that he's heard we could, ie. he's heard we're looking at QBs, which we already know. He states nothing to suggest that he has internal knowledge of our plans

I love Pauline. He's great, and I visit his site regularly, but misquoting/interpreting his comments that he's very careful in wording in order to push a certain conclusion is a poor representation of his knowledge

Pauline had those sources when Quinn and Dimitroff were running the show. Now that they've cleaned house, its much less likely he still has reliable intel flowing in. 

I could definitely be wrong, but QB @ 4 screams smokescreen to me. Leveraging Den, NE, Chi, Wash, and anyone else that wants a QB by making them think there's a real world chance that ATL takes the last of the top tier QBs. 

Someone is going to overpay here.

Wow, great inside info... man, this is a real breakthrough to know what we'll be doing now... Oh brother...

So basically picking a QB is a real possibility... what a revelation once again!

We already know this & tbh, I'm prepared for most anything come draft night.

When OP wanted to convince themselves there's a "very real chance we'll take a QB" 😅
