Just looking at Scott Wright's board rankings at the top players in the draft and it looks like this is a 9 man draft and the falcon's draft 10th. Unless Brian Brohm enters the Falcon's might be out looking in trying to trade up to get a player other than safety that could help. It is very possible that Anderson and Adams are taken before one slides to 10th. I thought Jarvis Moss was in there league but wright thinks other wise. Now yes these players have to go through workouts and tests but look at the players. This isn't to say all is lost if the top 9 get taken but consider def end a pass rusher is a must for a top defense and anderson and adams seem to be the best.I doubt if a player liike alan branch drops but could there be 3 QBs if Brohm comes out in the top 10? Its possible someone will drop but as of right now would you want to just miss out on a corner like hall,def ends like anderson and gaines and settle for landry or nelson? Let me put it another way who would have more of an impact Hall,Adams,anderson or landry or nelson considering how difficult it is to find quality corners and def ends?
