It’s NFL Draft Day (…finally)
We’ve been talking about it for months now. At least since the Monday after the Super Bowl. The Atlanta Falcons had the 30th pick then and they have the 30th pick now. Will they make a move just hours from now? Will they give up a 3rd Round pick to draft “their guy” at 18 or 22? Or will they give up their 1st Round pick for a 2nd and 3rd Round pick?
In the morning The Front Row will be talking about him, whoever he is. So will every other sports radio show in the country. What I want to know is, “did they listen to me?”
I said… I’d select a pass rusher with the 1st pick!
Plan A) Get an OLB who can get to the QB. An OLB that can cover a TE would be awesome.
Plan B) A DE who can rush the passer. A DE who can play the run as well would be great.
But if you don’t like who’s left… Here’s the plan…
Plan C) A CB who can start this season. A future Pro-Bowler would be fantastic.
There you have it. I’m a GENIUS!
The BIG QUESTION is: Will the Falcons draft a player from FSU? Will they select one of the available Seminoles to the delight of my friend and co-host Sandra Golden? (Tank Carradine? Bjoern Werner?) You can respond in the comments section
Oh, and here’s a PROP BET for you: o/u 3.5 People who go up to Brian Finneran tonight at Dave & Buster’s and ask, “is FRAN here?” Don’t miss the 2013 Draft Party at Dave & Buster’s, Sugarloaf!
Hope you’ll listen to Sandra Golden, Brian Finneran, and me tomorrow on The Front Row, 9:30am-12n on 680 The Fan!
