DeAngelo Hall was a no-brainer, but hte rest of the Falcons 1st day picks have all been surprises, at least to me. Jenkins, White, Babineaux, Beck, and Schaub. In all 5 cases, either I felt we might take a player at that position, but not that early (e.g. Jenkins, Babineaux, Beck), or we took a player at a position that I thought was hardly a need (e.g. White & Schaub).
It seems likely that our first selection will be a OT, RB, S, or CB, but it just seems to me that McKay is going to take the best player available, which could wind up being a position like WR, G, or DT.
I'm many of us will disagree on whether that particularly player is the best available, but I'm sure we're going to get a good player nonetheless. I have yet to be disappointed with a McKay pick on the 1st day. Beck & Schaub seem to be the only ones that may not be starters here in Atlanta, but I suspect once both players have moved on from Atlanta, we'll be able to look back and say that they perhaps weren't starters, but did manage to contribute significantly to the team.
