  • Could Matt Ryan end up a bear?

    I'm just thinking that if the ravens choose to go for Clady its foreseeable that all the best OTs worthy of the 14th pick are gone by the time chicago is on the clock. Its even possible that Albert is gone as well.

    Matt Ryan would still be on the board providing KC, or Atlanta don't select him (which seems likely).

    I think they would have to trade up. NE will sure listen to any offer at no.7 if the No.1 rated QB is still available.

      For some reason I was thinking that you were asking if Matt Ryan could be a bear, probably because you didn't capitalize Bear. I think he would make a very poor bear just because he isn't ferocious or big enough. Now JaMarcus Russell would make an excellent bear with a powerful body and a strong arm. Russell should be a bear, not Matt Ryan.

        First, I don't think Baltimore passes on Ryan. I'm not going to say no chance, as there's always a chance. But I'd put it awfully low. My guess is if Ryan is on the board, they'll run the pick up.

        But let's pretend it happens. At that point, I think a team will deal up, particularly if Ryan falls to the teens. Atlanta would be a strong possibility. So would Minnesota. Certainly, a darkhorse team could emerge .

        If he falls to the Bears pick, I think the Bears would probably pull the trigger, unless a superb deal came about. Now, that said, Atlanta could certainly offer a quality deal that could intrigue, so this isn't exactly like last year, as teams always prefer present value over future value.

          LMAO.

          Good thoughts on Russell. It seems he's been ravaging a few too many campsite picnics though.

            I think if Ryan got out of the Top 10 you'd see Carolina take him or perhaps Minnesota trade up for him. I still don't see it. I like Ryan in the Top 5 still.

              I would love to see Ryan as a Bear. Perfect fit imo. I doubt him and Clady would both be there but Clady is probably the only guy that could make us not got Ryan.

                I thought the exact same thing, LOL.
                The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''

                “We know that no matter the adversity, be it the lockout, be it the suspension or be it a hurricane, our men will pull together and defend the honor of this city. We’ve shown we’ve been able to do that.” - Jabari Greer

                  I don't think Ryan gets past the Falcons. The Falcons haven't addressed the QB position at all this offseason. Arguably not their most important need, but the most obvious, definitely, and in the eyes of many of the fans, not addressing that need is insanity.

                  The Falcs might wait to pick up their QB in the second round, true. Rumor says their O-coordinator has an eye for Brohm, but he might not last to them. Too much risk that the Phins might snap him up. And trading up into the first would cost them valuable picks.

                  Would the Falcs choose to trade down from #3 to get a QB later? Wouldn't please their fans to pass on the elite talent.

                  I'm still 80% convinced the Falcons have Ryan locked in their sights.

                    I could see the Bears trading up to get Ryan if he stated to slide. They NEED a QB and if they have a chance to get the top QB in this draft they have to do it. I think now there probalby think that they will be taking a OT with their pick but if Ryan is there why not get him because this years draft is loaded with good OTs.

                      The Falcons fans here will tear you up for that.

                      With the third overall pick the front-runners seem to be shaping up as: Jake Long and Glenn Dorsey. Matt Ryan is certainly possible, and I wouldn't be shocked or disappointed to see them go in that direction.

                      I'll say, if they are all there...

                      45% Jake Long
                      35% Glenn Dorsey
                      20% Matt Ryan

                      So basically what I'm saying, after breaking it down like that, is that right now I see an 80% chance of the Falcons NOT selecting Matt Ryan. In a new, run heavy offense I can see why. Chad Henne or Joe Flacco in the 2nd would make plenty of sense and should be available. Brian Brohm may have to be traded up for...

                          Well that shuts me up.

                          In my defense, I don't personally know any Falcons fans. :)

                            hah I wasn't trying to embarass you at all or anything. Through the draft process things have certainly changed and developed. A team like the Falcons could look more system specific for a guy like Long at Left Tackle or Dorsey at Defensive Tackle and know they can still get a solid player in the 2nd.

                            There still is a chance the Falcons take Ryan, just not as great as it once was.

                              Quinn fell to the early 20's, and teams passed him who could "use" a qb, I think Ryan could easily be there at #14 with no problem, and he wont require a team trading up, nor do I think his stock is worthy of trading up...Baltimore has mroe of a QB then Miami had last year and Troy Smith looked decent, who could be better with a better offense.

                              Ryan going to Chicago with no O line or running game would be brutal, but they probably intend on playing Grossman this year so they could hold off on an elite LT talent or some offensive weapons.
