      Well the reason i asked is because in the forum mock, i had the falcons pick and they had the #1 overall. I took a freak DE, (Michael Johnson). I dont see Jaamal Anderson doing anything any time soon and DE is a very important position.

        Yeah its a fine pick. You can never have too many good defensive ends.

          Yea true, just ask the giants. IDK if i see anything in jaamal and hopefully MJ produces this year so he can be a #1 pick because he has the tools.

          • Yeah. He looks like a legit pass rusher and even if he is weak against the run, it would be nice to see a guy bring the heat on the opposing QB.

            • If we're selecting #1 overall...gah that sucks...no one merits #1 right now, except there are a couple of guys I'd target just to trade after we picked them. There's no way Tebow and Stafford aren't tradeable. If we HAVE to pick a guy to keep here, I don't know wtf I'd want. I want a DT because you guys all hate Anderson, but you'll all be cooking some crow up by week 6 of the season when Anderson is ripping people. His hand violence is WAY up...from non existent (even with a sack in the first preseason game) to pretty impressive in week 4 against Baltimore. He's going to get sacks, and plenty of pressure. Him being 'slow' is BS, watch him line up at DT against the Ravens and get locked up, then run around his partner at DE, around the tackle, guard, and get the QB on the move.

              Watch Jam beat the double team and force the throw that lead to an INT by Decoud. So, I'm not going DE, even though I really love Michael Johnson as a prospect, he's a friggin stud and I think he'd be great to come in behind Abe and give us an insane rotation. (I like Bierman too though)

              I guess I'd have to look at a LT prospect, but Baker is just fine, and actually going to be an excellent LT (short arms and all) but I'd end up playing Oher or someone at RT. Baker is our LT.

              WR playmakers make me want to go that way, but I like our WR corps. We'll likely need one because I doubt we get to resign everyone. So we could be looking there.

              • Getting the #1 pick would be a nightmare.

                If it were me, I'd trade down, for minimal compensation if necessary, with whoever wanted to take Matt Stafford...

                I am desperately hoping that we can push ourselves at least outside the top 5 picks. #10 would be fine. A win against the Lions would be a great start.

                  • I would like to see us go after Brandon Pettigrew if he was to drop till the 2nd round. He seems to be the best combo of blocker and receiver from what I've seen.

                    • I dont believe we will have a top 5 pick. I think we will get a pick that we can select our DT and it wont be a reach, well that's what i hope. There is really no other position thats even close of a need other than DL, especially DT.

                      • I know he is only a sophmore, but we need to get Terrence Cody (Alabama nose tackle) when he comes out. He is Grady v. 2.0. He was like 420 (yes, 420) in junior college but is down to like 350 I believe. He wrecked Clemson's running game and has demanded double teams in his first two collegiate games. Of course, he isn't on the field as much as possible due to his size, and he is not an amazing pass rusher. But he is a Grady clone as far as his size, power, and runstuffing abilitys are concerned.

                        • An absolutely sensational draft, in my view, would be:

                          1. William Moore FS (Coleman to SS, we'll have a fantastic S pairing. Maybe Milloy will stick around as a coach...)
                          2. Alex Boone RT (also great depth for the first year while he learns)
                          3. B.J. Raji NT (great rotation with Grady until he takes over full time)
                          4. Eric Wood C (someone to groom behind McClure)

                          • I'd really like to get (at this point) assuming picking 20th overall

                            1.) Phil Loadholt
                            2.) Victor Harris
                            3.) Rashad Johnson

                              420lbs, my God! That would be so cool. Imagine like a 6"8 420lb NT. Kinda like you kept Gradys Proportions but made him 6inches taller.

                                20th? That's pretty optimistic, but hey, anything's possible.

                                Not interested in Loadholt. Character questions, which is a major turnoff. He'd be a fantastic mauling RT, sure, but someone that massive with motivational issues is a bit of a red flag.
