The "shitty" falcons signed Danta Robinson, and got rid of Houston.

That should go a long way in helping their effort.

Don't be a hater just becuase Vick left them in a bad situation. Oh, that's right. Your a Vick fan.

I watched a couple Boise games this year and didn't hear his name called, which is good (of course, Boise doesn't exactly have the Gators and Bama on their schedule) , but if he runs a 4.6....
I hear ya. He only did the bench at the combine because he tweeked a hamstring. So will be interesting to see what he can do at his pro day. He is flat out quick and from what I saw of him at the Senior bowl, it looks like he can run with anybody. My guess is something like a 4.4.......but we never know until he gets timed huh?

I disagree that we have all this depth at RB. Because none of these guys you mentioned could find their way off the bench last season sitting behind a Moore and a oft injured Willie P. RB is not high priority in this draft but 4th round or later I wouldn't mind seeing us pick up another young back to deepen the competition.

Kyle Wilson is from New Jersey and went to Boise.........pretty far from Hollywood. Plus his 25 reps at 225lbs shows he puts in the work at the weight room.

Here's some of his play from the Fiesta Bowl, including a devastating sack and fumble.

We could get Earl Thomas for 2 years at Corner then move him to starting free safety... and have joe burnett or william gay as the cornerback after that if they fufil there potential.

yeah Im not opposed to that either, but Im starting to fall into the trap of getting to attatched to a certain player/position


its crazy, for years Ive been screaming O-Line and year after year Ive been disappointed we didn't get a stud early......now Im at the point to where I'll almost be mad if we don't find a way to come away with a good db early

To trade up that far we would have to give up like our 1st 2nd 3rd and maybe another. As much as i would like to see Eric Berry with the Steelers i would never give up that much for one player.

ooh I like the man and would love to have him. But withthe issues we already have with Ben we dont need any more diva's. I'd take him for sure but the only Cb to take in the top 18 is Joe HAden. Thats why we should take Pouncey he's ranked 17th on Mel Kipers big board.
