Traded down twice in the first... Watch the magic!


Round 1 Pick 32 (DAL): Sidney Jones, CB, Washington (assuming Alford I'd playing for someone else, Truant, Jones and Collins is gonna make it hard on folks to find weak spots in the secondary like this year.)
Round 2 Pick 25: Taco Charlton, DE, Michigan (our Michael Bennett.)
Round 2 Pick 29 (K.C.): Chris Wormley, DT, Michigan (Our run D has so many holes, this kid will plug the run and provide a little interior pass rush)
Round 3 Pick 25: Eddie Jackson, SS, Alabama (comp for Allen on the back end of our pass d. Allen is good but not a great fit there, I think Eddie could be.)
Round 3 Pick 32 (DAL): Zach Banner, OG, Southern California (Our only whole on the OLine is at OG, Banner will fill that.)
Round 4 Pick 25: Charles Walker, DT, Oklahoma (Did I mention that our run d ducks...)
Round 4 Pick 31 (DAL): Daeshon Hall, DE, Texas A&M (Too good to pass up here, another player on the edge to get the QB of his spot and on his back)
Round 5 Pick 25: Stacy Coley, WR, Miami (Fla.) (BPA here, not that we need another WR at this point, but it wouldn't hurt)
Round 6 Pick 25: Pharaoh Brown, TE, Oregon (I think Tammie might be done)
Round 7 Pick 25: Psalm Wooching, OLB, Washington (depth at a position where we could use it.)

I don't get the need for CB in the first round. I just don't see it. I'd rather see the Falcons just re-sign Alford. The need for a CB isn't until later and even then, it'd just be for depth.

I disagree, Alford is a walk PI and a liability is coverage. Collins is coming on but we need some depth and quality depth at CB, with Tru out the question of who the next man up is is to much of a question. I'd like to wait till later to get one as well but with ho what fell in the draft he was the best choice.

Because alford is a average to maybe slightly above average starting corner, and he can be improved upon.
