If Maroney tears it up the rest of the year there is a very good possiblity all 3 running backs are gone in Bush,Maroney and Deangleo Williams.It would be a no brainer if they were available to trade up or just draftthem at the falcon's 1st rounder. Now if they are all gone who do the falcon's draft? Are there any def ends worth it in the late first round(which is where I think the falcon's draft).What about corners? Blackmon who doulbes as a recevier is projected 20-30 in the first so no chance of getting him even in the second round.Players drop but it is always best to have a backup plan.
Also consider rookies usually take awhile to break in and the way dunn has performed it would be hard press for any rookie to take his spot and produce like dunn has the first year.
All three backs gone....
Both DE's gone.....
Jimmy Williams obviously gone....As of now
I would lean toward CB Hester or S Landry. A possible trade up or down could also be likely.
Yeah I have been thinking more & more about getting Hester from Miami if he's available. He has game breaking speed and the ability to become a shutdown corner. My only problem with him is that although he has great speed (4.3), it is not that special ukind of speed the would justify a first roudn project-type of player.
If Landry is the Safety from USC (or was it LSU?) then I wouldn't bother with him either as he has not impressed me. In fact, none of the safeties have really impressed me this year in the NCAA except for Ko Simpson...who I would give my right leg for Atlanta to somehow pickup.
