  • 2011 Falcons Draft Discussion

    Hey it's been a few days since the 2010 draft concluded. I decided we'll need a brand new thread. As always it's never too early to discuss. What are some of the positions we may fill in next years draft?

    LT (based on what Baker does this year, could be our #1 pick)
    RB
    WR

    DE
    OLB
    CB (sadly)
    24
    Draft an explosive WR/RB
    12.50%
    3
    Draft a TE to replace Gonzo in future
    4.17%
    1
    Draft an OT to protect Matty Ice
    16.67%
    4
    Draft a DE that can get to the QB
    45.83%
    11
    Trade Down and get more picks
    12.50%
    3
    Trade Up and get a better player
    8.33%
    2

    The poll is expired.

    There is going be ridiculous WR talent next year. If Jenkins doesn't rebound this year, I could see him being cut and a WR being drafted. There should be first round WR talent even late in the 2nd.

    You missed off what may be our greatest need next year: TE. I doubt Gonzo will play beyond next year, and even if he does, that will definitely be his last. We could pick his replacement in the 1st or 2nd. Shold be some decent options. I particularly like Saunders' size, since we demand blocking from the TE. We could just get one in free agency, of course.

    DE and CB need will depend on the development of our youngsters, Biermann, Sidbury, Owens, Grimes, and Franks.

    Fingers crossed for Baker; I don't even like our chances if he gets injured this year, I don't see any decent backup.

    Agree RB could well be a need.

        Unless we make a trade for Detroit's 1st rounder, I don't think we have a chance, and I hope we don't: Green's not falling to #32 ;)

          I'd absolutely kill for AJ Green.

            I could see us picking up a guy like Jon Baldwin. One of the big name receivers will drop.

              this year will be an important year for baker, if he can prove he can stay healthy and play consistently, think we may cut our losses and draft another LT high in the draft. still would love to see another CB come in and sure up our pass defence

                You and me both. I would like either an OT or CB 1st rd. I like Matt Reynolds
                and Aaron Williams.

                  I think it's safe to say we're in a need of a WR. I'll re-do the needs just to get this topic going again since college football is about to start.

                  1. WR
                  2. SS
                  3. TE
                  4. LT

                  I'll hold on to DE and CB for now, because if young guys play well it won't be a need. I know Erik Coleman is not the solution at SS and William Moore can't stay on the field.

                    I'd probably move TE ahead of SS.

                      all those could be our first round pick.

                        I would really love to get derrick locke from kentucky. The guy is damn fast, loves going outside.

                          Does anyone have any input? Who do you guys think fits into our roster?

                          It's the 4th week of College Football now, so it's a good time to narrow down and scout some players now. I think Noel Devine has everything we want on the football field, but off the field he's the opposite.

                            at this point I'd say the needs are all offensive. OT, TE, WR and 3rd down RB. the defense looks stout at all the levels. maybe depth picks all over, but that's about it.

                              We could really use a good pass rusher. Abraham isn't gonna last long.
