Unless you John Carney.

Who would you rather have Carney or Hartley?

If it ain't broke don't fix it.

Hey dude, I've got the Falcons for our mock draft. How would you rank these guys if available?
DE-Clowney
OT-Robinson
OT-Matthews
OLB-Mack
TE-Ebron

Or are you guys targeting someone else perhaps?

1. DE Jadaveon Clowney
2. OLB Khalil Mack
3. OT Greg Robinson
4. DT Aaron Donald<-- Other Falcon fans would tell you to trade down for him, but I think that if we do that he wont be there when we pick. He's going to be taken higher than most people think.
5. OT Jake Matthews

All of those guys are players that we're most likley trying to get at least one of in the draft except Ebron. For the first few rounds you shouldn't even consider a skill player ouside of a LB. We're having an overhaul this season in the trenches.

Thanks for the info, I would have thought both OT's would have been 2 and 3 behind Clowney.

There are many Falcon fans on the OL boat for the draft, but what the Falcons need is proven vets on the Oline. Offensive linemen often stuggle in years 1 and 2 of their careers before they hit their stride in year 3, whereas youth doesn't play nearly as much of a factor on the defensive line. IMO, we should pick up offensive linemen in FA. We've lacked pass rush for years and it's time we get a premier pass rusher.

I'm more concerned about pass interference. The way it's being called is ruining the game more than anything else.
