Now that the draft is behind us, it’s time for endless analysis and speculation on what these players bring to the table. Some of our writers got together on Facebook Live on Thursday and did exactly that.
Our Kevin Knight was joined by DW, Eric Robinson, and Jeanna Thomas to discuss the Falcons’ draft approach and the players they ended up with in the draft.
Overall, we’re really happy with the draft. If you look objectively at the team’s draft results over the time that Dan Quinn has been Atlanta’s head coach, he’s earned the expectation that these players will be a fit. Cases in point: Keanu Neal, Deion Jones, Vic Beasley, Grady Jarrett, and the list goes on.
Spoiler alert: we love the Takkarist McKinley, Duke Riley and Damontae Kazee picks. We’re pretty neutral on Sean Harlow, we like what Brian Hill brings to the table, and we see the high ceiling and potential in Eric Saubert.
This is the first episode of The Falcoholic Live, and it’s something we plan on doing on a regular basis. Kevin is the one who has put it all together, and if you had the opportunity to watch the live show during the draft, that was our first effort. But we all have a lot of fun getting together virtually and talking about the Falcons, and we hope that you’ll plan to join us in the future.
