    On the Defense side I don't see Brent Grimes or John Abraham back next season. Grimes burnt some bridges sitting out in the playoffs and Abe is 34 and not worth investing a multi year deal on with the production he showed. The defense needs to get younger and meaner.

    Offense Michael Turner is not worth $7.5 Mil towards the cap, so he should be gone. And yes, Carl Nicks is great but you don't pay guards the Left Tackle salary that he wants.

    With the money saved on cutting Turner and Abe leaving I see a big DE signing this offseason hopefully.

    That would be a good mid round pick. I am a little jaded with him being a huge georgia fan but I have seen him play allot and although he won't come into the league a superstar by no means I think he can become a very solid starter he has amazing speed and is an excellent returner which might be weems replacement. I would not be upset at all if they draft him.

    This does make sense if their looking to add a young talented good tackler to the backfield. Boykin has a good head on his shoulders too and good leadership skills I think he would be an excellent nickle back from the start.

    Guard should never be your highest to second highest salary on a team, that's just not smart football. Yes he is a great player but an average tackle can play a good guard. Would you rather have Mario Willaims or Carl Nicks? DE is an elite position that you pay big money for.

    ^ You know Boykin played some of his best football in UGA's biggest games too, defintely rises to the occasion. He damn near won the Michigan St bowl game by himself (got a safety, 7 tackles, punt return TD, and a TD reception).

    A great guard can make a running game. I would rather have Nicks considering Mario will cost more and has missed time with big injuries both of these last two seasons. Nicks will get about 7 million per season and Williams will probably get about 13 million per season.

    Yeah I would rather have Nicks too than Williams. We have already put so much time, money and effort into the DE position, I really dont want to see us sign another big FA. I would rather see us put it into our backfield or LB corps. Nicks to me is worth the 7mill a year and could make everyone else on our line better than they are.

    I also saw one time during a game and I don't know how accurate it is but boykin this year intercepted the ball and ran it back for a td. Well they timed him but not in a second timing mannor. They acually did it in a Mph manner. They said and again I don't know how accurate it is but they clocked him at 21.2 or something. Which if its correct is pretty damn fast.

    The Atlanta Falcons also reportedly spent time scouting former Louisiana-Lafayette tight end LaDarius Green at the Senior Bowl. Green caught 51 passes for 606 yards this season to go along with eight touchdowns for the Ragin Cajuns. Green is thought to be one of the top tight end prospects in the draft. In his career he totaled 149 receptions for over 2,200 yards and 22 touchdowns.

    Atlanta gave a one-year contract extension to tight end Tony Gonzalez this season but the Falcons will soon be looking for a long-term solution at the position. Gonzalez caught 80 passes for 875 yards and eight touchdowns this season for the Falcons but has recently discussed retirement.

    Found one scouting report:
    LaDarius Green, tight end from Louisiana-Lafayette, is one of the most underrated players at his positions and in the draft. I saw a lot of good and very little bad at the R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl. For starters, his hands are absolutely great, made a remarkable catch in the 1st quarter on a play where his defender was called for pass interference, making it all the prettier. A few things to consider though are that he is constantly targeted by his QB, drawing many defenders. He was still able to make a lot of plays even in double coverage, but at the same time was shown that if you get good coverage on him and execute, you can shut him down, which could be a major concern to his draft stock. But for the teams that may choose to take a tight end that also has good blocking abilities, Green is their man. He blocked very well for the QB which could be super beneficial. Although SDSU doesn’t have a super strong front 7, he still shut them down.

    Something else I did like though about Green was that when he saw the defender had the advantage, he switched roles and played defender which is very unappreciated in today’s game. He also displayed attributes of both wide receivers and lineman, making him a perfect tight end.

    If Green makes it to the next level, which he could easily do, I expect him to excel early. Not many teams will cover him when he comes in becuase he will likely be a 2 TE at best in his first few years, or even a three, but could be a silent weapon. Put light coverage on Green, and he becomes explosive. If he has a strong combine, watch out world, this kid is absolutely explosive. Right now, I see Green falling anywhere from the early-late third round to anywhere as low as the early 6th round only because of the low competition he faced.

    Reporting from the Senior Bowl, AJC said Dimitroff spent extra time looking at all of the South team DBs.
