  • Character of Atlanta propsects

    One think we've done here in Atlanta is actually cares about character. And TD wants only high character guys to be drafted for this team. A look at every pick under the TD reign:

    2008:
    QB Matt Ryan - team captain for 2 years in college
    LT Sam Baker - team captain for 2 years in college
    MLB Curtis Lofton - leader on his college team
    CB Chevis Jackson
    WR Harry Douglas
    S Thomas Decoud - team captain on his college team
    MLB Robert James - team captain on his college team
    DE Kroy Biermann - team captain on his college team
    RB Thomas Brown
    CB Wilrey Fontenot
    TE Keith Zinger

    11/11 were known as hard workers
    10/11 were seniors
    6/11 were team captains or leaders on their college team
    0/11 had character issues

    2009:
    DT Peria Jerry - Team Leader on his college team
    SS William Moore - Team Captain on his college team
    CB Christopher Owens
    DE Lawrence Sidbury - Team leader on his college team
    CB William Middleton
    OT Garrett Reynolds
    LB Spencer Adkins
    DT Vance Walker - Team Leader on his college team

    8/8 were known as hard workers
    8/8 were seniors
    4/8 were team captains or leaders on their college team
    0/8 had character issues

    2010:
    TE Tony Gonzalez - not a pick, but traded a pick for the best TE ever and one hell of a leader.


    Summary of his 2 drafts so far:
    19/19 were known as hard workers
    18/19 were seniors
    10/19 were team captains or leaders on their college team
    0/19 had character issues

    so when looking at prospects, it makes more sense to look at guys who are known leaders and captains on their teams. But we are for sure drafting known hard workers, with a huge lean towards a senior, and a huge lean towards needs in the first 3 rounds. This tells us what kind of character we need and will draft here.

    We are looking at the following in a players character:
    1) Hard working on and off the field
    2) no character issues at all
    3) Maturity. The high % of seniors tells me this. (95%)
    4) Leadership. while not essential, would be nice to have.

    then again, this is all based on 2 draft classes and only 19 players to base data off of.

      just did some more research... Atlanta Falcons draft picks from the past 2 years have combined for ZERO arrests before getting drafted. so no Everson Griffen or Sergio Kindle here.
