Atlanta Falcons Draft Mistake?
Did the Atlanta Falcons make a mistake in the 2008 NFL Draft in 2007? I think the Falcons might have just missed a golden opportunity at one of the top players in the 2008 NFL Draft. They finished their season by beating the Seattle Seahawks in the last game of the regular season. The Seahawks sat out some of their questionable players for the game and that was enough for the Falcons to get a win at home.
Now one of the players the Falcons could have landed was Darren McFadden out of Arkansas. Many felt he would be there at the 2nd spot in the draft for the Falcons to take so they could replace the veteran Warrick Dunn. Dunn has annoucned he will back for next season, but he might not be in a Falcons uniform. McFadden would have been a solid addition to the Falcons offense, along with Randy Moss who the Falcons hope they can snag during free agency. The Atlanta Falcons will have the top offer in terms of money to offer for Moss’s services in Atlanta and don’t be surprise if Bob Sanders from the Indianapolis Colts also lands in Atlanta next year too.
The Falcons win will probably leave them out of the Darren McFadden sweepstakes and you might see the Falcons trade down and just take a QB in the late first round of the 2008 NFL Draft. A lot of good quarterbacks will be in this draft and someone will be there for the taking in the late 1st round. I would have to say Andre Woodson from Kentucky looks like a good bet on who the Falcons might add to their team for next year. So Falcon fans might have to give up hope on Darren McFadden, but Randy Moss and Bob Sanders could both be picking up paychecks in Atlanta next year!Click here for reuse options!
