Please forgive the outages today.
As a token of my appreciation for fighting through them, here's a discussion post. You guys and girls love those, right?
It's a pretty simple question I'm posing. Will the Atlanta Falcons draft to fill needs—say left tackle, defensive end, backup quarterback—or will they go for the best player available? Previous drafts under the current brain trust have been built more around filling need than pure BPA, but I think that may change a bit in 2012. You're welcome to disagree.
I recognize, as many said when I posed this question on Twitter last night, that there's a lot of off-season still to come before we hit the draft, and that could significantly change things. Factor what you assume will be the outcome of free agency into your comments, if you would, and we'll go from there.
