24-DT Peria Jerry

ATLDirtyBirds 04-25-2009 05:42 PM

The Atlanta Falcons select Peria Jerry.

Shiver 04-25-2009 05:45 PM

I like the pick. Now Atlanta has a fierce 1-2 punch at UT. You can keep both him and Babineaux fresh and healthy.

BamaFalcon59 04-25-2009 05:53 PM

Dumbass then. It's a ******* horrible pick. I hope this guys favorite tree is the pine. ******* garbage ass pick. ******* Everette Brown is on the board, our biggest ******* need.

ATLDirtyBirds 04-25-2009 05:57 PM

Why the hell did we not exhaust every possible option to try and get Dorsey? Instead, we now have a 25 year old DT who doesn't have much potential.

georgiafan 04-25-2009 05:58 PM

I got no problems with the pick, as DT was a bigger need the DE in my book. I trust TD

BamaFalcon59 04-25-2009 06:23 PM

We got a guy who will never even ******* start.

He has a great ******* motor. Wow. I could pay my best friend millions of dollars and he'd have a great ******* motor.

He's going to start. It's just the fact that we got a guy who is 25 years old, not very big, and maxed out that upsets me. I think he's going to be a solid player, but nothing special. I'm not sure why we'd want a one-gap penetrator only with durability concerns. **** me, why didn't we go harder after Dorsey? Or even trade down when Peria Jerry is the best option.

We just re-signed Babineaux. He won't start.

If he starts the ball will be run down our throat.

There is no doubt he starts. This isn't Amobi Okoye. He's 25 years old, and our first round pick. No shot in hell we would draft a rotational player to backup our Iron Man of the DL with #24.

pr0d1gy 04-25-2009 07:27 PM

You know what Jerry would be great for? Pass rushing 3-4 DE on the opposite side of OLB John Abraham. Our pass rush becomes instantly credible, but not having Grady at NT would hurt us up the middle....and we'd need a couple big MLB's...one down in Lofton.

Which is why I'm mad at the pick. I can't see him, or Babineaux, starting at nose tackle.

I would rather have selected Ron Brace.

Physically, and in a needs based perspective, we obviously should have taken Brace if we were going to stick with the 4-3 defense. I smell a change coming. Most of the pieces are there, especially with Brooking out of the way....as much as it pains me to say that.

Jerry is 6'2", Babineaux is 6'2". The defensive line would still be undersized.

I would have expected us to take Rey Rey Maualuga if we were moving to a 3-4.

D-Rod 04-25-2009 08:00 PM

I like the pick.

Discussing whether he's going to "start" is narrow minded. We rotate our DTs heavily on a situational basis. Babineaux and Jerry are both going to get a lot of snaps, at the right times.

It does show that we are leaning on Trey Lewis to play plenty of snaps as well.

Also, our rotational strategy will negate Jerry's durability concerns.

Good pick, good value. And who gives a crap that he's 25? So what, we are paying him on a rookie salary during his peak years, that's actually better?

Not the perfect pick - I'd love it if he had 10 pounds extra - but good.

Also, impossible to say what it would have taken to get Dorsey. It sounds like we at least discussed it. Obviously the Chiefs wanted more than we were willing to give.

Overreact much?

It's all I could come up with given the players we have and Perry. Chauncey at ROLB, Abe at LOLB, Babs & Perry at DE's, Moorehead at NT. Play it tight along the line and run it like a speed based cover 2 type of 3-4, could be something to see. Kind of a gritz blitz rebirth?

pr0d1gy 04-25-2009 08:06 PM

Well, lookie here, Rashad Johnson and William Moore are both sitting there and we're up in a couple of picks. Can you say fill a need? I like Milloy, but we need someone that is more of a tone-setter at that 4th LB/ ITB SS.

You know, this draft is weak where we need depth....lol Oh well.

D-Rod 04-25-2009 08:08 PM

Willy Mo, Rashad, Michael Johnson???

D-Rod 04-25-2009 08:09 PM

I think this would be a great place to take Johnson, and then try to get a S in the third, maybe trading up a bit.

D-Rod 04-25-2009 08:11 PM

Willy Mo, happy with that.

Let's hope that it was all about the foot injury, and we get the Junior season Willy Mo.

D-Rod 04-25-2009 08:12 PM

Will fight it out with DeCoud for the starting spot.

kiranadwaney 04-25-2009 08:13 PM

I really like the william moore pick

pr0d1gy 04-25-2009 08:15 PM

We've spent way too many picks on Safeties in the last 5 years, same with D linemen. This guy really needs to step up.

Good news is he is a big boy and looks more explosive than your usual big Safety. He could be a quality strong safety for years to come. I was never sold on DeCoud anyways, but you never know how these things will turn out.

ATLDirtyBirds 04-25-2009 08:21 PM

Michael Johnson would have been perfect.
