This draft was BEYOND disappointing

Hello Falcoholics, if you are like me than you are very disappointed with what T.D. and the Falcons FO did at this years NFL Draft. As much as I am trying to convince myself that these picks were good, I have come to the realization that I just can't. This was no ordinary 2nd round this year and ALOT of 'Blue Chip Talent" fell to within our reach. What makes it worse is that those guys who fell were what we needed. Guys like Mike Adams(OT), Jonathan Martin(OT), Cordy Glenn(G) and Coby Fleener(TE). The stars were aligned for the Falcons to have one of the best, if not THE best draft they have ever had. All we had to do was one thing.. We had to trade something to the Rams for their 3 second picks (which were all in the first 15 picks of the entire second round). I mean the situation could literally have not been any better for the Falcons. The number one TE was right there and exceptional O-line talent was right there for the taking. Granted the Rams were asking for something huge in return. I say we should have pulled the trigger. Who cares if we would have had to give the farm away, this was no ordinary 2nd round and everything we needed WAS RIGHT THERE. T.D. talks about 'versatility', well Cordy Glenn, who was the top Guard(Certainly top 3) in this years draft can play 4 DIFFERENT POSITIONS! A player can't get anymore versatile than that. Oh, and did I forget to mention that he is something our O-line "Needs" . Another player, Coby Fleener(who most people projected to be a 1st rounder) fell to within our reach and we could have had an already good TE mentored by the greatest TE of all time. If only the Falcons had played their cards right we could have had those "sexy" picks AND fix that O-line at the same time. It's just ridiculous what good of a position we were in but we just let it all get away. And as a major Falcons fans I just can't stress enough THE HUGE OPPORTUNITY we let get away. Life is tough being a Falcons fan, what's new.
