One more thing.
Here's a question and answer from the Falcons' website. Looks like we are looking OL tomorrow.http://www.atlantafalcons.com/team/article.jsp?id=11802
Q: Picks five through seven, can you find some players who you'd be as comfortable with as you are with the likes of Boley and Shropshire from last year?
McKay: Yes. I think we do. And I think that we think we can find some guys who can help us on special teams, which is the way they make it onto the team. Because quite frankly the way it's going now with the guys we've added in the offseason when you look at Abraham..in the first day [of the Draft], really, we've got John Abraham, Jimmy Williams and you've got Jerious Norwood. You're happy with the first day. Course, now you get into the second day and we got Chris Crocker in the fourth round. We're happy to have Chris Crocker. He's the starting free safety, so we're happy there. And then in the fifth, sixth and seventh round you've got to look at it and say, 'Can we get some guys, number one, if there are some offensive linemen we like, or number two, some guys on special teams who can make the team.
Because it gets hard to make the team. 53 becomes a tougher number this year than it was last year.
Mora: I think when you come into the Draft, you have to say our first-round pick was John [Abraham] and our fourth-round pick was [Chris] Crocker. That's pretty good. And that's the reality of it.
McKay: And the first-round pick is not a holdout. So we've got that going for us. So that works out. And part of that trade -- the key to that trade -- is that we got the extra third-round pick, because that gave us the ability to get Jimmy Williams. Because if we don't have that pick, we can't get Jimmy Williams. So that worked out okay, going from 15 to 37 and having the ability to get him. That worked out okay.
