The Case for Corey Ray: Or Why Kyle Lewis Dropped on My Draft Board

June 9, 2016 Micah Smith 0

In looking at the top of the Draft, there’s a lot of hype around Kyle Lewis and his massive numbers. There should be. His triple slash in 2016 of .395/.535/.731 is quite impressive, and 20 home runs in 296 plate appearances sure suggests he’s got some legit game power. It all added up to some prestigious…

2015 Falcons Draft: Tevin Coleman, RB

May 8, 2015 Brent Blackwell 0

It's no secret that the Falcons needed a running back. With the departure of Steven Jackson and Jacquizz Rodgers, the team entered the draft with only 2014 4th round pick Devonta Freeman and deep threat receiving back Antone Smith in the fold. Rather than pursue the two big name first round backs, Atlanta waited until…

2015 Falcons Draft: Jalen Collins, CB

May 4, 2015 Brent Blackwell 0

With their 2nd round pick, the Falcons selected LSU cornerback Jalen Collins. Collins is a polarizing prospect for several reasons, but there is no doubt about his raw talent. There's considerable upside to his game, but he's far from a finished product, and there are off the field risks as well. Let's take a closer…

2015 Falcons Draft: Vic Beasley, Edge Rusher

May 1, 2015 Brent Blackwell 0

It was the most obvious need in the draft. Everyone knew the Falcons needed an edge rusher. If you're taking the time to find your way to a little-visited corner of the internet to read about a guy the Falcons just drafted, you probably knew this too. Now, I'm not a big proponent of chasing…

Falcons take OT Mathews….now what?

May 9, 2014 Chris Jervis 0

Last night, in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, the Atlanta Falcons made many people happy when they selected OT Jake Mathews from Texas A&M with the 6th overall pick. Rumors had swirled of a potential deal to move up and take DE Jadeveon Clowney, but the Falcons wisely did not bite. The…

Falcons Draft: Round 1, #6 – Jake Matthews

May 9, 2014 Brent Blackwell 1

Once the Texans selected Jadeveon Clowney first overall, there was very little drama to Atlanta's first round pick Thursday night.  Sure, there was mystery.  Jake Matthews, Taylor Lewan, and Anthony Barr all made sense, but the drama wasn't really there.  Falcons fans understood that if the team stuck with the 6th pick, it was really…

Time to go mockin’…..

May 8, 2014 Chris Jervis 0

I was originally going to do a collaborative 2014 NFL Mock Daft with Brent Blackwell, but AT&T Uverse and their severed fiber optic data lines had other plans. Bastages. As Brent said, mock drafts are a pretty useless exercise. There are hundreds of variables that go into a team's decisions (well, maybe except the Raiders')…
