  • I think Gamble and Dunta should be our two main targets this offseason.... Gamble would probally be alot cheaper but to me Dunta Robinson is a complete stud....He is everything Deangelo Hall is supposed to be but it all depends on how he bounces back from the injury.

    • Dunta is coming off of a big injury. No thanks.

      • What type of injury was it? Do you guys think that Brandon Pettigrew have a chance at fallen into the 2nd round if so I think he will be a nice pick up for us we have to get Matt Ryan a number two option.

          He tore his ACL and hamstring in November.

          Pettigrew has character concerns. I doubt we select him.

          • While i agree that Chris Gamble would be a good addition i guess it would just come down to cap room. I really like every player on our team right now except for Adam Jennings and i think with the chemistry we have going id love to see us resign pretty much everyone except for some of the old journeymen we brought in (moorehead fraser fudge etc) who would be replaced by draft picks/F/A.

            We all know an awesome D Line can make life easier for corners thats kinda why a DT is my main F/A target, i mean just look at how Haynesworth impacts the Titans secondary, they have like the two INT leaders in the NFL. In addition, Fat Albert would completely up-end how other teams block our D Line- the position they once paid least attention to, now would have the most attention paid to it. He is also a 6"6 320 guy. Great Mike Smith body type

            I agree that i wouldnt really be looking at Dunta Robinson

                I will force him to do so.

                • The secondary is the only place I see the Falcons really need help right now. In the 16-20 range I could see them taking a guy like Alphonso Smith of Wake Forest who I think isthe 2nd best CB in this draft. He's undersized but all he does is make plays

                    I like him, but uhhghh. Small corners are making me cringe at this point.

                      I agree. If we go after a corner, he will need to be able to physically compete with WR.

                      Looks like the PR unit could get a shake up, so that may well be one of those ideal events i outlined already in the thread beginning to occur. Give Norwood a shot

                        Bad off field issues, not a player for the Falcons.

                          I agree as well, we need a physical corner.

                            Surely there is a 6"7 255 lb TE with baseball mit hands that catches everything somewhere in college FB. He can even run a 4.8 40 and not know how to block...i just think that is a dimension of player we dont have right now and would be good to add

                            • If we're picking up a small corner, I want Smith from Wake Forest. I mentioned him earlier, but the kid is a flat out stud. He's physically dominant, and quick, he'd be our KR/PR specialist as well, but the kid is a ballhawk.

                              • What ever we get, bottom line is we need to get better defensevly, especially against the pass.
