Falcons Movin' On Up In The Draft

The Falcons are now picking 24th in the draft.

While this isn't exactly prime real estate in the NFL Draft, there have been some decent picks at that very spot in the last few years. Back in 2005, Aaron Rodgers fell all the way down to the Packers there, while the Titans scooped up wunderkind running back and Matt Ryan hater Chris Johnson there just this last year. With so many teams with new coaches who really need offensive playmakers right gosh darn now, there's a very good chance the Falcons will get a shot at a guy like B.J. Raji.

Several mouth-breathing intelligent analysts have us taking a guy like Brandon Pettigrew at TE, a course that I just can't support no matter how hard I try to talk myself into it. If a super talented defensive tackle like Raji or one of the top safeties in the draft is sitting there at 24 and we go skill position on offense, I'm going to be apoplectic. As you know from last year, that involves more cursing than a Quentin Tarantino movie.

Now that we're clear, though, who do you see the Falcons taking at 24?
