When looking at this year's draft order, Atlanta is in a tough spot. True, we have 11 picks, but 6 of those comes in rds 5 through 7, and there is very little value in those picks when one wants to trade up in the power rounds. Thomas Dimitroff have done a wonderful job in getting value in the late rounds and this year, hopefully, would be more of the same. Now is the time for Atlanta to decide on its' future in whether or not the Falcons are devoted to being Super Bowl contenders every year. This year's draft can help us sure up holes on both sides, especially on defense.
Many experts are predicting that Georgia's own, Alex Olgetree, will fall in our lap and we will pass on him. I hope this is not true! Alex has proven his worth as a 1st rounder, remember Tech and the SEC Championship games. He would provide both talent and skill to a line backer core that desperately needs it. Reuniting him with the "Dream Akeem", he would have chemistry and experience in the middle and would help Atlanta in 3-4 schemes. Just saying.
With our second pick, I would get Rambo, plan and simple. He would provide depth at the safety position and at line backer. Rambo is a versatile player that Coach Nolan can use right away. Alex and Rambo are not strangers to Falcon nation, we know that they can play. They have proven for years, not only in blowouts but in the games that we had to have. I'm all for picking the best player for each pick, but why pass on someone who we know isn't perfect.
