I love the fact that you can get on Twitter and immediately take the temperature of a fanbase. In the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft, the Atlanta Falcons traded their third and sixth round picks for the right to trade up from #30 to #22 and pick Washington CB Desmond Trufant. As always there is some mixed reaction but overall the majority of the response was positive for the pick. Some didn't like the pick....  @gritsblitzblog I don't wanna talk about it — Zach Kidd (@GBBZach) April 26, 2013 @gritsblitzblog I hate it. — #DBN❗❕◾◽SHINE◽◾❕❗ (@DirtyBirdNation) April 26, 2013   Some thought we didn't necessarily need to trade up to get Trufant @gritsblitzblog Liked it better when they first reported we traded our 3&6... Not 30 overall and 3&6...not a bad pick but overpriced — David Grant Davies (@falcsfan) April 26, 2013 @gritsblitzblog I like it...but Idk we hadto move up to get him...good pick though! — His Majesty The King (@BestntheWorld) April 26, 2013 @gritsblitzblog Love it but rather would've traded one of our 4th rounders instead of our 3rd — Tony Bereznak (@chyeahhhtone) April 26, 2013 @gritsblitzblog didn't need to trade up to get him dumb! — Sohn Collum (@scollum21) April 26, 2013   And of course the positives....
