Draft Picks

People who know more about the Falcons than I do will probably disagree with the substance of this post. I’m more of a Braves fanatic and follow other teams/sports only to the extent that I can appear somewhat knowledgeable about them to friends and in sports bars.

During my wasiting-time-because-I-don’t-feel-like-working 15 minute break today, I check out the Falcons draft picks this weekend. Though SportsNation is giving the birds a B-C in picks, I think that they are pretty solid. My general feeling was that the Falcons needed another receiver for Vick to throw to and an improved defense. Which, it seems, is what they went out and get. My not knowing any of the picks by name is only circumstatial, as there are only a few college players I know by name (David Green, Reggie Ball).

So those are my extremely uninformed thoughts on our new Falcons. Uninformed mainly because, you know, there is a Braves season going on that constitutes most of my worries.

    I think that this pick is purely a salary cap move. Peerless Price’s contract is huge, and will eventually, if it doesn’t currently, restrict what the Falcons can do in the free agent market. Combine this with the focus of the Falcon’s offense not being the passing game, and the fact that he hasn’t had that much production for the last couple of years, and you get a situation where they are either preparing to release him after this season or move him elsewhere.
