Who Should The Atlanta Falcons Draft in 2019?
Time to be general manager and make the draft picks for the Atlanta Falcons.
If I was personally the one in charge I would be looking to trade out of the first round.
The Falcons defense has too many holes.
As of now on NFL.com they give up the 4th most points per game.
There is no single player that is going to fix that so trading down would be the most ratinal thing to do.
I think keeping the first round pick is not worth it generally for all teams as you can trade down for at least 1 top 100 prospect in this draft and get a random first rounder next year from the team you trade with.
Plus even the lowest first round pick could easily be turned into four third round picks which doesnt sound all that amazing but they would be 4 top 100 prospects vs 1 top 40 prospect and when your team busts badly on your first round pick it makes you wonder why trading down did not happen.
If I had to keep the first round pick I would probably pick the best defensive prospect.
As for round 2 I would trade down for a lower pick and try to get an extra 2nd or 3rd next draft.I would attempt to get at least 2 picks for every one of mine for all 7 rounds.
The Falcons could fully fix their defense with my strategy.
You can either keep the extra picks or trade them for a quality vet and if you really really like one prospect you can even trade up for them with that extra pick but I would generally avoid that.
The Falcons need help on defense that is where I would focus in the draft.
Leave me a comment at the bottom of this page and tell me what you think and what you would do if you were the general manager of the Atlanta Falcons?
