    Exactly. I could definitely see us making 4-5 picks in the first 3 rounds

    Wish list for the first 3 rounds, no particular order, pick 4 or 5 of these top-100 prospects:

    1) Kenny Vaccaro/Matt Elam/Philip Thomas
    2) Khaseem Greene/Arthur Brown/Sio Moore
    3) Brandon Jenkins/Trevardo Williams/Alex Okafor
    4) DeAndre Hopkins/Da'Rick Rogers/Stedman Bailey/Markus Wheaton
    5) Datone Jones/Jon Jenkins/Brandon Williams

    Of that group, give me Matt Elam (1st-2nd), Khaseem Greene (2nd), Trevardo Williams (3rd), Da'Rick Rogers (2nd-3rd), and Brandon Williams (3rd). Probably have to give up the whole rest of our draft and some of next year's to make that happen, but I'd do it for those 5 guys. Huge upgrades at all our positions of need.

    I'm quite fine with this idea. Yes we may miss out on a late round gem, but this year is about filling needs and I'll give that up to fill a need anyday. If we sign a LT in FA and keep Ellerbe than I'd like to get S/NT/ILB/WR (in no particular order) in the first 3 rounds of the draft

    That feeling that I had back Dec/Jan (i.e., Eifert will be on the board for us [whenever we picked]) is back.

    Source confirms Tony Gonzalez is coming back to the #Falcons, as @JayGlazer reported.
    Back to the AFCCG we go. So get ready!

    It would be hard for Eifert not to be a possible BPA at #32. Phenomenal player, IMO the best (most complete) TE of the past 3 years. Don't get all the internet draftafarians trying to put Ertz (vastly inferior prospect) ahead of him.

    He would be a massive upgrade over Dickson as our in-line TE, kicking Pitta into the slot. I don't think the Falcons hanging onto Gonzalez for another year takes him out of the equation for him, though--they could always just run more 2TE sets and have him take over in 2014. Their offense would be scary with Julio, Roddy, Gonzo and Eifert as the top 4 targets.

    Re: All Things Draft:

    I love the idea of Pitta replacing Boldin as the slot reciever with Eifert at TE. Could run a lot of formations similar to the Pats. Jacoby and Torrey on the outside to cause deep zones. Teams are going to be scared of Jacoby after what he did in the post season

    Re: All Things Draft:

    And to compare speed, Pitta is faster than Boldin, not by much, but just to get rid of that argument against Pitta in the slot

    I wouldn't want to face that corps at all...man.

    I'm not a Combine monkey at all, but Eifert demonstrated some serious explosion in Indy.
    There's soooo much that an OC can do with Eifert. Similar to Austin, he could make the entire passing game light up.

    He really could.

    They could run an offense with Torrey, Jacoby, Eiffert, and Pitta. Lots of mismatches there.

    Heard Elam looks great at pro day today, i been back and forth on him because of his height but there is no denying he's a really good football player.
