Kerry Meier was not QB quality in college, he certainly isnt one in the NFL. Why cut Redman, hes an at least average backup QB in this league

It's just for fun, but I have a TON of faith in Keenum's skills. If I didn't the move wouldn't have been made. I expect Keenum to be a quality starter in the NFL one day... I am also not on the Redman train to say the least. I don't think he is an average backup. He's not the worst, but he is not average to me either (it might be that I went to a game where he started and it ended with Michael Vick chants and the Falcons lost by 25+)..

I have Meier on the depth chart at QB more as like a wildcat option. I expect him to line up at QB sometime during the season and I also expect him to throw a pass in the season. Nothing more than that. If our top 2 QBs got hurt in no way did I mean he would be the starter.

Just made a trade with the Dolphins..

The Atlanta Falcons Receive:
35th overall pick
67th overall pick
99th overall pick

The Miami Dolphins Receive:
22nd overall pick
86th overall pick
150th overall pick

I was happy to get out of the first as I had a player in mind to target that will almost surely be there at 35.

With the 35th pick in the 2013 NFL draft, the Atlanta Falcons select.... Tyler Eifert, TE Notre Dame



Quote:
With this pick the Atlanta Falcons select this year's top TE. Tyler will be a great fit in our offense and locker room. He has proven himself to be this year's top TE and is a very good pass catcher and can also block very well. Welcome to the organization Tyler!

With the 54th pick in the 2013 NFL Draft the Atlanta Falcons select... Jonathan Jenkins, NT/DT Georgia.



Quote:
With this pick we get a versatile defensive lineman that can fit what we are planning on doing in the future, and can fit in our 4-3 base and our 3-4 looks as well. Welcome to Atlanta Jonathan!

With the 67th pick in the 2013 NFL draft, the Atlanta Falcons select... Arthur Brown, LB Kansas State



Quote:
We picked another versatile defender that can play more than one position. It also strengthens our LBing core depth. Welcome to Atlanta Arthur!


Thoughts on my draft so far guys..?

Yeah, I was trying to find positions we needed starters or rotation players at but there really isn't many. Hopefully that's a good thing for us this year Very Happy

With the 99th pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the Atlanta Falcons select.... Eddie Lacy, RB Alabama.



Quote:
We feel as if Eddie Lacy could step in and play big for us from the beginning which is enticing, but we also have a good RB core so this just adds to our rotation and depth. We think Eddie can be a special player in the NFL. Welcome to the Falcons Eddie!

I was just going to go BPA at a couple of positions. I was either going to go Swope or Lacy but Swope was taken a few picks before mine so I just got Lacy. Either way worked for me. Appreciate the feedback.

Double-Dipped at TE. In real life TE situation would be Eifert/Ertz/Palmer, but in this we are not considering retirements so I had to cut Michael. Either way our TEs would be phenomenal.

With the 118th pick in the 2013 NFL draft the Atlanta Falcons select... Zach Ertz, TE Stanford.



Quote:
With this pick we are keeping up our mentality of being explosive. Zach is a great young man with great receiving skills for a big TE. I think he can add a good element to our current TE core. Welcome to Atlanta Zach!

Buyer Beware! UGA has serious discipline problems currently. The intelligence of the athletes there is definitely below average at best. Maybe he is not like the four to be kicked, I would just stay away right now. Hopefully Richt gets the program straightened out. Wink
