    Falcons to pick third in draft, followed by Raiders and Chiefs

    [size=12pt]Falcons to pick third in draft, followed by Raiders and Chiefs[/size]

    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Atlanta Falcons won a coin toss for draft position on Friday, meaning they will pick third in the April 26 draft with Oakland fourth and Kansas City fifth.

    All three teams finished at 4-12 and their opponents had an identical record, the first tiebreaker.

    There will be 31 picks in the first round, with New England losing its choice, taken away as part of the penalty for its illegal taping of opponents' signals.

    Whew, was worried about that but I guessed right and have them in that order on my mock draft.

    Lucky guess

    Lets hope that's not all you get right in your draft

    I was actually being series.


    Not that big of a deal when you rotate them in the first round but they alternate throughout the rest of the draft.
    Would have really messed me up to go back and rethink every pick for each team in the later rounds.


    Not sure if I wanted to do that at this stage of the game.
    Well not without the right amount of beer. ;D

    Congratulations to Atlanta, who won the right to pay an obscene amount of extra millions of dollars.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    well least if they can recover some of the obscene amount they paid out to the resident dog handler masquarading as a QB, then that will offset the move up the draft list.

    well thats what happends when your franchise gets plagued with all those wonderful things that can help hurt a football team and help it in having a 4-12 record.

    now the ATL can get McFadden, i think they would be dumb to not take the best player on the board, then they can get either henne or flacco in the 2nd rd.

    If Ryan should slide, I think I'd rather take my future franchise QB if I were them.
