Isaiah Wynn to the Falcons?

At least one NFL.com draft analyst thinks so!

Would love to see the big man with the big grin in ATL!

    Falcons need guard help, so its a definite possibility.

  • SoFL_DawgSoFL_Dawg Posts: 11,084 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Falcons need some DB help first.

    They need to upgrade the Guard position bad, wouldn't mind seeing him as a Falcon next year!

    I will be legit shocked if the falcons take a dawg that high

  • coastaldawgcoastaldawg Posts: 1,411 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Don't see him falling anywhere near this far, but would love to see Roquon playing alongside Jones at, would be maybe the fastest pair of inside linebackers ever. Would love to see Wynn replace Schweitzer at guard, him and Schraeder we terrible this season.

    I have prayed that none of our Awesome DGD’s do not get drafted by Cleveland!

  • WCDawgWCDawg Posts: 17,293 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    Das Birds need a OG badly. The other position I'd look at is CB in the 1st rd, but only if there is a potential all star available.
    I think Wynn will be an all star OG sooner than later.

    It is a definite possibility that Isaiah is drafted in the 1st round by the Falcons. I think he would be a great fit in a position where they have a huge need. I saw another mock where he was gone before the Falcons draft. It is very hard to predict what happens that late in the 1st round. I doubt Sony will be there when they pick in the 2nd round, and RB is not really a position of need for the Falcons in this draft. One mock had Sony and Chubb both going in the second round to Jets and Giants - guess they could still share a place together in NYC if that happened.

  • Dakota_NesterDakota_Nester Posts: 398 ✭✭✭✭ Senior

    Falcon's are probably not drafting a CB first round. They're paying both Alford and Trufant $8.5 millions + each

    If they get Wynn and steal Sony in the 2nd round I may start watching them again.

    Falcons don't need Sony. Even if they did, Sony will be long gone by then. Freeman is the clear starting RB with the Falcons and Coleman is a great back as well. I don't know what the franchise will do with him.

    It would be great to have either Chubb ( we're both Cedartown bulldogs as well as Jawga Dawgs, or Sony, but it's not a position of need so neither will be Falcons.

    I’ve never understood why the Falcons never seem to draft any Dawgs. You’d think the fan appeal would be worth a third or fourth round pick. It isn’t like there aren’t a lot of Dawgs in the NFL or we are Vandy.

    Never understood this either. Similar when they took Brooking. I know he was a nerd, but if their is talent in state...why not take that instead?

    I understand why an NFL team would be careful to not favor the local team.
    Doing something for the wrong reason can lead to a bad result in just about any endeavor.
    It messes with judgement. Just look at the entire field of choices equally.

    The Braves have favored looking close to home because there is far more ground to cover in baseball with college, high school and international players, plus they had an old scout who admitted he didn't like to travel.

    Well for me it’s not about favoring the local team...it’s about taking a flyer on the local guy when all things are equal. That’s all

    I agree. UGA is obviously the local team, but one could argue that AU and UA are as well. Atlanta is closer in proximity to those schools as well. Julio was an “obvious” take, but other than him, it seems the Falcons try to “steer clear” of local teams’ players. If all is equal, I’d like to see the Falcons give a little more credit to their “local team” talent.

    I'm not sure about stats on this....with only a few Dawgs going in any particular draft, and given that positional needs are important to teams when they draft, and with 32 teams drafting, what are the odds that the Falcons would have a good opportunity to draft a Dawg in any particular draft? Math guys?

    I don’t know the history, I just know they could’ve had Reshad Jones and he could’ve helped them and they passed on him.

    But this year, let’s say they were looking for them to take an RB...I’d fully expect them to take a hit like Guice from LSU instead of Sony

    that's part of my point...with 31 other teams selecting, availability might not be in the Falcon's favor to get a kid they want. In this case, Guice who they might want (I don't think they ate looking for RB's especially) might well be gone by the time the Falcons take their first pick. Same with other positions, including Wynn at guard.

    The Falcons rarely select UGA players. It used to bother me but after their Super Bowl flameout, and Julio Jones’ negative comments about UGA, I hope Wynn winds up on a contender, not a pretender.
