That we are looking to move up in the draft. I hope not but if we do I hope it's for Mack. Think we need to stand still for now.

Right now I don't really care who we draft as long as they can come in and make an immediate impact. I'm not a huge fan of Clowney (because of the desire issues) but if we do move up and get him I hope he proves me wrong. Come in like a raped ape and dominate.

I do think we need to go defense, but if TD surprises and goes OT then same thing, come in and make an impact. Keep Ryan's backside clean and blow open holes for the RB's.

I'd still like to see Atlanta grab one of the top 2 offensive tackles in the draft. I would much rather see Baker start at RT or server as top backup to both LT/RT. He'd be a damn expensive backup but I don't really want to rely on the dude fulltime at LT.

I was listening to a local sports talk show here in the ATL on Friday and one of the hosts (Chuck Oliver) suggested we take Matthews at 6 and potentially trade up from 37 to 29 (Pats pick) and maybe get Dee Ford as well. I wouldn't mind that at all but if Ford isn't there, stay at 37 and see who falls to us.

My ideal draft, we stay put and get Mathews at 6 and Ward at 37, both can start right away, both are high motor, high effort guys, if we need to trade up a few to take ward and give away a 4th I'm fine with it. Long term this should give us two solid starters both of which could be pro bowlers in 2-3 years....
