William Moore wants Falcons to draft Calvin Pryor

New, comments

Fact: William Moore speaks and then you can't hear anything. Ever.

Our own Alec Shirkley kicked butt and took names breaking down Louisville product Calvin Pryor a few weeks back. Read his post, if you haven't already. Basically Pryor is a stud, and while success in the NFL is never guaranteed, betting on him isn't a bad idea.

Pryor is not who the Falcons will draft with their first pick in the draft, unless they trade down. He likely won't be around in the second round either. If the Falcons could find a way, he'd be a great fit; he'd step right in and have an impact. If you ask William Moore, Pryor's potential partner in crime, the Falcons should find a way.

I'd guess Moore's opinion won't force the Falcons to do much of anything. But it's interesting that Pryor has Moore's stamp of approval. Could it be a sign of things to come? Probably not. He's probably just screwing around on Twitter. Let's be honest though, Moore is obviously a good judge of talent. He also has a vested interest.

Your thoughts?
