- Nice article about Michael on Marcus for any interested. Mike says theres no way we'd draft him, which I think most of us suspected anyway.

Behavior doesn't change in a couple of months like older bro suggests. Still one has to wonder if Blank will take a chance on Marc. If he does,...the Falcons filter is a bunch of bull.

I think the Falcons will have the opportunity to get Marcus in undrafted free agency. Frankly, I only see a handful of teams that have: A) the desire for a QB and B) have a history of not exactly going after humanitarians.

It was very telling to me about Marcus' draft status when he was not brought in for any personal workouts.

My guess is that only Arizona or Oakland would really even think about drafting him, but probably not until Round 7, and if they don't draft a QB in the first 4 rounds (which seems doubtful to me at this point).

I wouldn't be totally surprised to see him eventually land with Denver, Tampa Bay, Pittsburgh, Miami, or Washington as an undrafted free agent, since those are typically the teams that are a bit more willing to overlook character issues when it comes to prospects.

I still wouldn't mind seeing the Falcons bring him in as an undrafted guy and converting him to WR, where I think he could be able to make a much quicker impact in the NFL.
