meh...this is a very talented draft.

not much in the way of elite talent, but quite heavy with solid starters and players.


Aside from 3 OL and Jordan and Miliner... no one is really a solid starter.

I'd trade with them, but the price would be steeper than any other team (besides the bucs and saints).

This is not the strongest draft but even in weak draft years a good portion of the first 16 or so can start pretty much immediately if needed. Or at least sometime during the season. I think most of the top half can start in 2013 at some point.

As an example, whoever we draft at #14 will be a starter at some point (unless we hurney the draft)

It's a numbers game. If we are improved at least as much as ATL is it is a net benefit. And even if ATL gets more out of it than we do it's a possibility given that we only play them 2x/yr.

If you ever trade with the enemy, you make them beg and you shaft them.


This. If you trade within the division, you better make damn sure that you "win" the trade on paper. It would be a crazy ballsy move by Gettleman to make in his first draft.

The Falcons showed that they're not shy to pay a big price to move up in the draft for a prospect that they covet when they traded up to take Julio Jones. I think that will work against them if they start calling around to try to trade up this year.

In the Beason trade with the jets we went from 14 back to 24 IIRC and picked up a 2nd. Dropping to 30, I want a 2nd and a 3rd in the least

There is no room for pessimism on this board.

Until we realize that we are still a 7-9 team next year :(

What? This draft is full of potential starters even well into the third round.
