Our ongoing podcast series reviewing the Thomas Dimitroff years for the Falcons continues today with his efforts in the 2017 season. The follow up to his incredibly strong 2016 season featured a disastrous set of draft picks and some decent moves in free agency.

To examine this season, I was joined by Aaron Freeman of the Locked on Falcons podcast. We talked about the moves made by the GM and why this season was an incredibly mixed bag.

Topics include:

  • Trading up to draft Takkarist McKinley and the fact that T.J. Watt was available to them
  • Why not retaining fullback Patrick DiMarco didn’t make any sense
  • The Dontari Poe signing and why it was an underrated move by the former GM
  • The great value of a guy like Blidi Wreh-Wilson and why he’s the Wes Schweitzer of the defense
  • So much more
