I watched the first seven or eight picks of the draft, and then took the better half out for dinner. I figured that was pretty generous of me … giving up the draft and all. Hopefully she will reciprocate later tonight.
The Falcons managed a bit of luck by landing Peria Jerry, DT Mississippi, with the 24th overall selection. I really thought Peria would be gone by the time Atlanta selected, and I saw very few mock drafts that had Peria lasting this long.
Hopefully they will go secondary with the next selection, followed by linebacker, and then depth on the defensive and offensive lines.
Shaping up to be a great draft for the Falcons. At a minimum, Peria will be a day one starter.
