Joe Haden: What would it take to bring him to ATL?

Postby mattlanta » Mon Mar 01, 2010 3:36 pm

I really want Joe Haden in this draft, and it looks like the Falcons have shown interest in him too. I know he's way out of our reach, but does anyone think it is anything but unrealistic that Haden can come to ATL? Scott Wright said he reminded him of Derrelle Revis when Revis was coming out of college. I would love to have a Revis here in ATL! I haven't watched this draft class too closely though so I'm not as informed as I was in the past years about the prospects, but I do know that Joe Haden is one of my most wanted prospects!

I like him as well, but it would cost to much to move into the top ten, where he will most likely be taken.

If only we would have drafted Revis when we had the chance and not taken JA98 then we wouldnt even be having this conversation.......McKay thank you for all you have done for this franchise :roll:

IMO, Revis wasn't as polished as Haden when he came out of Pitt. Revis was closer to Vontae Davis IMO. Revis had loads of potential, but at times seemed to be going through the motions because he knew he could "out-athlete" most receivers he faced in the Big East.

In hindsight it seems obvious, but Revis wasn't a Top 10 pick in 2007.

We'll have to see about Haden. If the Browns and Raiders don't take him at #7 and #8, then he could drop enough that he would be in trade-up range. I doubt TD would pull the trigger, but if he was to be there at #13, he would at least have to think about it.

Heard Haden ran a 4.59/4.60... good sign that he drops down to a more realistic pick for us?

There is no way he drops far enough for us, unless they find out he has been running a dog fighting ring for the past three years :lol: .

I can't see Haden dropping past 15 and that would be a steal if some how TD could manage to pick Haden up but I am not getting my hopes up. On NFL Network they had a show with 2 NFL lineman talking about the corners. One said Kyle Wilson reminds him of Courtland Finnegan. Finnegan wasn't that highly rated so just maybe their is a steal in this bunch somewhere.

If the Falcon's only had to give up a 1st and 3rd for Haden I would do it in a second. How often can you find a solid no1 corner. He may not be Champ Bailey but how often is the deep pass used in the NFL? If your technique is so good you don't need the recovery speed.
Sometimes running the Mularkey offense makes me feel like I'm in a prison.
