What Carl Dukes dumping on today?

Well, it's Thursday, April 25. And that means that Round 1 of the 2019 NFL Draft is upon us.

What should the Atlanta Falcons do?

"Are we six players away or two players away," Dukes asks.

Dukes explains why the Falcons answering that question (for the record, Dukes believes the answer is two) is of the utmost importance in determining draft strategy for the birds, he also give three players he's absolutely in love with for the Falcons:

  • Quinnen Williams ("Best player in draft.")
  • Ed Oliver plays bigger than his frame and is great against the run ("[He's the] next version of Aaron Donald.")
  • Dexter Lawrence is very quick for his size ("I think Lawrence will be there at 14.")

"I would make a move to go get either Quinnen Willaims or Ed Oliver if I were the Falcons," Dukes said.

Dukes also hands out his version of the Falcons' draft needs:

  • Defensive tackle
  • Corner
  • Offensive line
