Claiming he has had just one good season (by comparing him to Anderson) and stating that his sample size is small is misguided. He has been one of the most consistent players in all of college football since the start of last year. Not every player is a four-year starter; a two-year sample size is not really small. If he had just one good year like Anderson, then yeah, there is some concern.


I don't know what you not listening to your marketing teacher has to do with football and from your post it seems like you are in high school? That explains a lot. Anyway your opinion is your opinion. I don't agree with it at all. I think that Barr's sample size and position change poses a question mark to his translation to the NFL. You like Barr. Great. Nothing I say will dissuade you from that. That's good as well. We will have to agree to disagree. When you get older you will learn that has to happen sometimes.
Lol, the (not so) subtle jabs are cute.

I'm a junior in college, since you're so curious.

You would have been better off admitting you were in high school. Now it's truly just sad lol

Gotta go Oline(meanest and nastiest in the draft) if the plan is to win next year. We need ALOT more on defense than on offense(DE's,DT's,LB's,FS, etc......) and that'll take some time.. Hell, we can just try to outscore everyone for the time being. Smile Matts really good when he has time. But weve seen what happens when he doesn't trust his oline. (And I cant really blame him to be honest. A drop back pocket passer HAS to trust his Oline to be successful. And TD knew this when he drafted him, but still put together this train wreck up front) We can try to fix the defense in FA and in the 2014 draft(and hopefully stay healthier next year). But the oline is the biggest priority imo. Gotta be able to score points in this league. And if you cant block, youre in trouble. Still cant believe they went into the season thinking this Oline could take us to the SB(pre-injuries). Weak azz Konz, sorry Garrett Reynolds, and an unproven Mike Johnson as starting Olineman on a SB contender? Wow! And were they really counting on Baker staying healthy? I blame TD waaaaay more than Smith for this btw..... But that's Smith's defense out there though. And has been for 6 years.........But again, TD handpicked the ingredients.

I posted this poll and have given it a few days to run it's course, so now I'll weigh in. Unfortunately, it looks like we are in top 10 pick for the 2014 draft.

My observations and predictions with the draft of 2014:

1) With only one QB drafted in last year's round 1, 3-4 QB's will be drafted in round one..... hence, more of a QB heavy draft

2) Very deep O-line class (at least compared to the last couple)

3) The thought of waiting around and 'hitting' on a TE in the later rounds has become a myth... teams are evolving to a tandem TE set due to the diversity of formations

Hopefully most agree with those statements....

I want ATL to focus their draft on impact defensive players (pass rushers or cover / complete linebackers) round 1. Draft an offensive lineman round 2 then follow that up with best player / need available.
