Here is my preference for the falcons in the draft this year.
1st round- Sean Weatherspoon, OLB, Missouri Best pure outside linebacker in the draft. Plays excellent in coverage and can be deadly with his speed in blitz packages.
3rd round- John Jerry, OG, Ole Miss Has great size at 6'5" 328 and solid speed running a 5.15 40. Could play guard or right tackle.
4th round- Ben Tate, RB, Auburn Ran a good 40, very strong and athletic, could be a good compliment to the other runners.
4th round Comp- Ted Larsen, C, NC State Can be the future center of the franchise. Has good quickness and strength as he was a former DT
4th round Comp- David Gettis, WR, Baylor Big, athletic receiver. Needs some work on his route running, but that can be taught. You can't teach size.
5th round- Nate Byham, TE, Pittsburgh Very good blocker, needs some work with his receiving, would complement Gonzo nicely
6th round- Kevin Basped, DE, Nevada He is a project. Has great size, could be good one day. Needs a lot of work on technique. Who better than a veteran like Abe to help him get started.
7th round comp- Walter McFadden, CB, Auburn I know, another corner, but at this point, I had pretty much addressed every other position of need and who knows, maybe he could suprise a person or two.
I know, I know, no pass rushers until the 6th round. I believe we already have depth at DE in Bierrmann and Sidbury. If there is not an elite pass rusher available in the first round, I don't think there is anyone worth taking until a later round and attempting to develop him. Besides that, I tried to address needs along with BPA. Hate it, love it, let me know what you think.
