Zach Kidd’s “What Would I Do” Mock

HHCD

I’m not Thomas Dimitroff, so obviously I have a differing view of what the team should do come draft day. Those plans are probably drastically different from the ones Atlanta has. However, I’m my own special brand of evil genius, and during this exercise where I demonstrate what I would do if I were the GM of Atlanta, (All 7Read the Rest…

All Along the Watch Tower: A Guide to 2014′s Atlanta Falcons Free Agency

An unexpected storm has thrown the ships off course for the Falcons franchise: a team that just a year prior was five yards from the franchise’s 2nd ever Super Bowl berth. The bubble finally burst in 2013, the age, the years of luck, and some might say karma finally caught up to the Falcons, and neither cared for mercy. TheRead the Rest…


Senior Bowl Notes: North Practice

I missed the beginning portion of the North practice because of traffic and how the practices were staggered, but I got plenty of notes on the trenches despite that. First of all, Aaron Donald was completely whipping Cyril Richardson all day today. Whether it was 1 on 1′s or team, he was beating him consistently and only lost a fewRead the Rest…


Senior Bowl Notes: South Practice

At the beginning of the practice I watched the DB’s to get a feel for a couple of the guys I hadn’t seen much of, and was intrigued by Walt Aikens and Lavelle Westbrooks. Westbrooks looked smooth and made some nice catches fully extending his arms which isn’t typical for defensive backs. Aikens didn’t look quite as smooth, and heRead the Rest…


Senior Bowl Weigh-In Notes

Here are some of my brief thoughts on the Senior Bowl Weigh-In: There is one quarterback here over 6’3″ and that is Logan Thomas. Aaron Murray measured in at just 6003 (6 ft 3/8). Derek Carr was just over 6’2″ with 9 1/8 inch hands, which is not good as far as hand size goes. David Fales came in atRead the Rest…


East-West Shrine Game Preview

Today is the day the East and West rosters will finally play in an actual game. For most of these players that aren’t being called up to the Senior Bowl next week this is the last college football game they will ever play, and it’s their last chance to give NFL and CFL teams a chance to see them inRead the Rest…


Shrine Game: West Practice: Day Three

The West practices continue to be very slow and often not beneficial until near the end of practice. They nearly put me to sleep during the first half, but I rallied and came away with these notes.   Quarterbacks The quarterbacks on the West roster had a frustrating day, particularly in 1 on 1′s. The wind wasn’t strong, but itRead the Rest…


Shrine Game: East Practice: Day Three

The East were back in pads for the third day of practice and the last one they will have in front of the majority of NFL scouts. Here are the players that stuck out to me today: Quarterbacks Jeff Mathews continues to perform well and certainly has to be reminding scouts of what they saw coming into the season. HeRead the Rest…


Shrine Game: West Practice: Day 2

Unfortunately the East practice was moved inside to the pavilion in the team hotel thanks to rain, though I personally didn’t think it was bad enough to warrant moving the practice indoors and consequently turning a valuable day of practice into a walk-through. As a result of this all of the scouts and evaluators will only have two days ofRead the Rest…
