I wouldn't be upset if that happened, but I have a slightly different opinion on a couple of points. A few comments, positive and negative.

1. I don't really want to pick up Flozell. Another aging tackle on the downside of his career is not what we need right now.

2. I do understand that McFadden is the best player in the draft, and is a lock to be a very good RB. But, even with all that, I would be reluctant to take any RB in the top 5. I just think that the vast financial outlay on a top-5 pick cannot be justified on a position where injury is such a factor (LJ, Caddy, Ronnie...), and especially when even mid-round and undrafted guys can get regular 100 yard games behind a good O-line - see Ryan Grant and Earnest Graham this year.

My view is this: if we have an O-line that creates regular holes, then Norwood and A.N.Other will get plenty of yards. If we don't, then even McFadden will struggle.

3. I like the selection of Brennan in the 2nd. I think, given a year on the bench, he has a decent shot at being a well-above-average QB for the Falcons. Not quite as good a shot as Brohm, but perhaps a better shot relative to draft position than Brohm in the top-5.

4. I don't really like what you've done with the O-line. As I said, I'm not convinced by the Flozell pickup. And while Barry Richardson might be a good RT, I'm really not persuaded that he even has a shot at being a good LT. In this scenario, we haven't dealt with the absence of a LT at all, in my view. It may be that you believe that Richardson can play LT; in that case, I can only respectfully disagree.

5. I like the signing of Corey Williams, though I fear that he may get expensive. Also, I'm always wary of signing FA DT's who have only really stepped up their play in a contract year. See Kemo over at Carolina.

6. Rest of it I'm happy with, especially Hall in the 4th.

Adams is a beast. I really like him. I asked Cowboys fans what they thought the chances he leaves is. Apparently, it's almost a lock that he stays.
