It is never too early to start thinking about the draft (reason for this update). The Falcons will get the 19th or 20th pick; a coin flip with the Texans will determine the order. Toolbox.com has a handful of mock drafts.
The Falcons have to go defense with their first couple of picks; remember they traded away their 2nd round pick for Tony G. I am not sure that this draft will have a shutdown CB; those are rare. The Falcons will be in good shape if they can find a solid CB that can start right away and anchor the secondary for years to come. The Falcons also have to get better on the d-line, speaking of which, it looks like Peria Jerry’s rehab is going well.
They say Jerry is taking part in a rigorous rehab routine at their facility virtually every day. He’s mostly working on strength and flexibility. He is not running yet, but that appears to be the next step.
It would be a huge win for the Falcons if Jerry can be back to full strength by the start of the 2010 season.
