  • If Jake Long and Dorsey go 1, 2 and the Falcons don't think Ryan is worth #3..

    ..I see no problem with them taking Chris Long or Vernon Gholston. The Giants showed that a team can overstock with DE's and find a way to get them all on the field. Besides, John Abraham is never a guarenteee to stay healthy and who knows if Jamaal Anderson will develop into the player the Falcons hoped he will become when they drafted him #8 last year. Thoughts?

    What about Sedrick Ellis?

      He doesn't seem to be viewed as a top 5 prospect by anyone, so he would seem a reach at 3, but he is a top 10 prospect who fits a need so I wouldn't have a problem with him.

        I imagine that they'd take Ryan if Long/Dorsey went one and two. That said, if they didn't think Ryan was worth the 3rd, and if they couldn't deal down, yeah, I could see defensive end. Abraham isn't exactly a spring chicken.
        DE would be the best value, but if they didn't want to go DE, I could see them make a reach for OT (Jeff Otah) or DT (Sedrick Ellis).

          If Jake Long and Glenn Dorsey are gone at #3 (which is very possible) they have to take Ryan.

            Well, that may be so, but according to you he's the 7th best prospect and the Falcons have 10 other picks, including 34. They could just wait to see who is on the board then or even trade up for someone like Brohm or Flacco. They certainly have the ammo to trade up. I'm not a big fan of trading up and the Falcons haven't done well at it in recent years(Vick, Mike Jenkins, Jimmy Williams), but there seems to be so many mixed opinions on Ryan. Some say he's a franchise QB and some says he's not. I guess it all depends on what they think of Ryan.

              I'd say either Sedrick Ellis or even Ryan Clady. They should take Ryan though.

                  It will be interesting if the Rams take Dorsey with Chris Long on the board. I don't think they would do that because of their DE situation.

                  Although if you really look at the scenario: would you rather have Glenn Dorsey at 3 tech and Adam Carriker at RDE, or Adam Carriker at 3 tech and Chris Long at RDE? I'd want the former personally, it fills the most needs to the best ability. I'd rather have Carriker at RDE, maybe.

                  Granted, you could have a great pairing of Chris Long at RDE and Adam Carriker at LDE, but then that opens up a hole at 3 tech after veteran La'Roi Glover. They'd have to draft a guy there, or who knows, Claude Wroten finally gets it and fulfills some of his potential. He's certainly spoken like it this offseason, hopefully it really happens.

                    I would not say that they have to, Ryan to me just doesn't seem like he is a fanchise QB. They could go with Ellis

                      I would say they go with Chris Long, that might be the definition of taking BPA

                        If Jake Long and Dorsey go 1 & 2 Al Davis is calling the Falcons to trade up to number 3 to lock in Chris Long.

                          Taking another DE is not a good thing..after you spent a top 10 pick on one last year..And you dont have NO QB!

                            If Jake Long and Glenn Dorsey are gone then I personally think that my Falcons would take Chris Long or try VERY hard to trade down to pick Ellis or Clady or Chris Williams
