I think ATL's WR's are fine, better then alot of teams with alot of room to grow...If you want to add a guy, it certainly won't be top 3, I think Crabtree is just a dream, especially with losing another corner, having holes at RDE if Anderson moves, possibly NT, and along the line, with the weapons at WR a TE would help Matt Ryan alot more then somebody else outside.

    I do not see any elite TEs at this point. And we already have a LT. His name is Sam Baker. The guy we traded into the first round for.

        There was some highly touted TE being talked about. Saw him go top10 in a mock. Forgot his name. Had something to do with a P though.

        We dont know for sure how productive Baker will be at LT. I would like to think that he can come in and be a Matt Light type player and that is probably the best case scenario for him. He isnt a boom or bust type guy so what we see out of him in his rookie season, is probably what we will get out of him long term (more or less. he will probably get better). There is a reason why he dropped to 21 and there is a reason why many considered that pick a reach.

          I like the idea of Jenkins...a lot...but we'll just have to see how well Houston and all our other new CBs do. Jenkins seems like he'd be a super pick...

              Same as Bama, but I'd have Andre Smith (to play OG) instead of Duke Robinson. Robinson is a great guard, but Smith is just as much of a beast, with better athleticism.

              I'd have Baker-Blalock-(McClure/Datish?)-Smith-Oher

              (If I could have a 6th, I'd take Alex Mack to finish off the line; but I wouldn't take him over Mays, Woods or Jenkins)

                1. WR Michael Crabtree
                2. OT Michael Oher
                3. OT Andre Smith
                4. S Taylor Mays
                5. Not sure...


                I didn't see a ton of Woods, so I can't really say much on his part. Duke Robinson and Phil Loadholt are two guys that I really like, but they need to put it together this year.

                        Gimme that Crabtree. I said it before, and watching that last preseason game really did it in. Matt Ryan is best throwing in between the numbers and letting the WR's have space to run. Crabtree is deadly in space.

                            Sure. Let's keep our franchise QB with only one real weapon to throw to. It will be interesting to see if Laurent can be a number 2. He didn't play at that caliber last year. Jenkins is nothing more then a tall guy. Same goes for Finn, just add in crummy knees. And Douglas is what he is. A slot/#3 WR.

                              the NCAA football season is just around the corner, i think we as falcons fans should look tightly at WR, TE, OL, DL (esp DT) this season.

                                really? you think we need to take a #2 WR with our first pick? that makes no sense financially or even addressing our needs. if we need to get Matt a weapon it's at TE, not WR. our WR's are good for us and Jenkins might even light it up and be the possession #2 we need. with Laurent and Douglas as slot and #4, we would have a very formidable WR group
