I like the falcons getting a stud OL in the 1st round as well.I don't want any part of Mack. I'd rather grab an OT in the 1st and grab 2 pass rusher in 2nd. I trust Dee Ford or Attaochu more than Mack especially considering Mack @ #6 has to be a hit. Jackson Jeffcoat might slip to the 3rd round and I like that value also.
We are paying Matt Ryan over $100MM. Let's get the OT to solidify the OL (Baker, Blalock, Hawley, Asomoah, Matthews/Robinson/Lewan) and make it a team strength. What if we are able to run the ball for the first time in 3 years? What if we give Ryan time to throw a deep ball on occasion?
1st: OT (Lewan, Matthews, Robinson)
2nd: Dee Ford, Attaochu, or Safety
3rd: Jackson Jeffcoat, Safety, etc
4th: Zach Mettenberger (if he's here. I think he's the best QB in the draft. We get a 2nd, at worst, in 2-3 years)
I think Julio’s done. Those ankle injuries are career ending especially when you’re 6’3. He may be able to pull out a year or 2 but chances are it will linger around.I like the falcons getting a stud OL in the 1st round as well.
Also, your second,third & fourth round pick choices are good too. I like our backup QB so I would go after some WR's in this draft. It is a hidden need. Roddy White is getting old and while Henry Douglas is a good option...I think they need some more talent on the roster to potential step up. If no one else steps up this year then we need one taken in the first two rounds next year. Also, Julio's health worries me..
IIRC it was a foot injury not an ankle injury. But thag worries me even more because the place he injured is known to reinjure frequently, sometimes becoming a career ender.
