Atlanta Falcons Top Priority Needs:
Mid Priority Needs:
Top Priority Wants:
Mid Priority Wants:
Low Priority Needs:
Positions the Falcons are set:
1 OLB position
LDE (like it or not we're set here for a little bit)
1 DT position
Punter (like it or not we're set here for a little bit)
don't listen to this guy....
WR is not set and TE isn't even close to set either. _________________
WR - We need a guy who can convert 3rd downs and score TDs in the red zone. A big tall possession guy who still gets separation (which has been a problem for our WRs). We'll probably go after a deep threat in the draft as well. Two receivers seems likely. Even though we added Moss and Manningham the only WR signed for more than 2 years is Crabtree.
RG - With Snyder gone that leaves Daniel Kilgore. I think they have confidence in Kilgore but I would think they would want to add a RG early to give him some competition. Especially if we don't add a vet.
Potential Big Needs:
C - Goodwin gave up 6 sacks (by far his worst year). I expect him (and the rest of the OL) to be much better this season. He has 2 years left but we could look for his replacement this year or maybe next. Right now looks like practice squad's Chase Beeler is the only backup.
So I Rank the Needs:
2. WR (x2?)
3. Future C
4. S Depth
5. Depth at LB/DL/CB
Check on 1.
Check on 2 (except only 1)
Check on 3
Check on 4
Check on 5 OLB...
I was right about them not taking a CB early if at all. Seems like most thought it was a 1st-3rd round option. They are happy with DL and CB depth which I figured they were.
Wrong on RB but most of us had a feeling they would I just would have waited until next year.
