We’ve got a Falcoholic quickpod for those of you clamoring for more first-round draft pick analysis and thoughts. Today, DW is joined by The Falcoholic himself — Dave Choate — to talk about the surprising pick by the Falcons: Alabama wide receiver Calvin Ridley.

With players like Taven Bryan and Maurice Hurst still available, the pick of Ridley seemed more like a luxury pick. Some would argue it was the team taking the best player available, which is not something they’ve traditionally been known to do.

Here’s what you’ll find in the podcast:

  • Thoughts on the surprising pick
  • The scouting report on Ridley and how the Falcons may be a good fit for his weaknesses
  • Why the team passed on defensive tackle in the first
  • Whether or not fans should panic
