    Another edge, DT or OL would have been preferred but what do I know.

    To me, this screams bust. Can’t tackle as a linebacker after playing four years in college. Ain’t good

    I typically look for linebackers who have trouble tackling. Always a desirable trait

    Really a baffling pick.

    clearly the guy is an athlete but I’m not sure what he is going to do for us other than special teams.

    It just feels like Atlanta can never do the easy thing, the consensus thing. Whenever there is nearly universal agreement on 1-2 top guys, we'll jump for some distant 3rd choice instead. Our GMs are the real life equivalent of the fantasy guy who starts taking "sleepers" in round 2

    not that this is a measure of anything, but I bet mock drafts have a terrible track record with the Falcons

    I had convinced myseld that Willis was a good value here.. Well we took a qb, but a white and intend to play him at lb. :ded:

    Arthur should fire everyone and turn on autodraft. I suspect he's a dipshit too though.

    We just took Ridder.

    Is it time to lock this thread and we all go our separate ways?

    My only guess is that the falcons didn’t think Johnson, Williams, Wilson, Dean, or Willis would be available when they picked so they just didn’t evaluate them

    You guys are weird. How often do these guys that fall like crazy turn out to be good? Everyone in the league is passing on them, not just us

    What does that have to do with anything? My point is, that we have no idea what we are talking about. They are drafting the positions we want, just not the specific players. Maybe we are wrong

    It has to do with you saying guys that get passed on turn out to be underwhelming draft picks. And you stated that Ridder is your favorite QB of the class. Well, he went in the third round, so he was getting passed on. I’m sure you see my confusion now

    Like the wku kid. We could have drafted same position and different kid each round and I would have been ecstatic.

    I don’t know why I keep arguing, we are drafting high upside dudes at positions of need. You guys don’t want to be competitive next year anyway. Let the kids develop a year. Guys like this turn into good players all the time

    I think it’s safe to say we are all beyond worn out by this franchise.

    We did target the right positions but it’s impossible not to when we need immediate help at literally every position.

    Anderson was drafted 100% on traits bc even his best HL are simply just OK. There really isn’t much great tape at all. Maybe it works, maybe it doesn’t but a falcons fan being skeptical of a small school honkey is completely justified

    Arnold E has really good tape and measurables. This was a very very good pick
