Analyzing the Falcons Two Draft Trades

The Atlanta Falcons came into the draft with eleven picks. I was positive that we would not take eleven players in this draft and it turns out that due to trading up twice we only chose eight players. Football Perspective took a look at every draft day trade and here is what they had to say about the Falcons two trades (click on the links for a more detailed analysis)... ...

Draft Review: Falcons put their focus on pressing needs

Grading the picks Round 1: No. 22, Desmond Trufant, CB, Washington Review: Trufant fills the most glaring need on the Falcons roster, that of a starting cornerback. Because the Falcons need him to come in and start right away, the fact that he sounds as NFL-ready as possible makes Trufant a good pick. Both general manager Thomas Dimitroff and head coach Mike Smith pointed to the...

Falcons Fans Sound Off On Robert Alford Pick

With the 60th pick of the NFL Draft the Atlanta Falcons surprised many when they chose their second cornerback of the draft and made Robert Alford SE Louisiana's first ever player to be drafted.

The Sports Hound: 2013 NFL Draft Grades – NFC South

2013 NFL Draft Grades – NFC South   Atlanta Falcons - B- The Falcons went out and addressed their two biggest needs at CB and DE.  They let both Brent Grimes and Dunta Robinson go in free agency and Asante Samuel is aging.  They drafted Desmond Trufant and Robert Alford back-to-back in the 1st and 2nd [...]

Falcons Trade Up for TCU DE Stansly Maponga

As widely reported Thomas Dimitroff wheeled and dealed in the draft, trading up multiple times.  However, the trades were for eight spots in the 1st round and ten spots in the 5th round.  He maintains his strong history of selecting players who have ridiculously difficult to spell names by moving up to take Stansly Maponga, defensive end from TCU. I think Dimitroff tends...

Falcons Draft Two Safties and a Dukie in the 7th

It's compensatory pick time and the Falcons are in for a three course meal. One after another the Falcons just blitzed us with three straight picks and while seventh round players aren't going to have a huge impact, I really like two of the picks (with the other being an unknown to me). With the 37rd pick of the 7th round and 243rd overall pick the Falcons went...
