What is the one thing the Falcons haven’t done well in recent years when it comes to building the team? The guys on Dukes & Bell discussed what they think that is, and can the team fix that starting with the 2020 NFL Draft?

Carl talked about how the best teams in the league always get the best player on the board.

“The one thing that we haven’t done well, is we haven’t necessarily drafted the best player on the board.” Dukes said “And that’s what the great organizations continue to do, take the Ravens, take the Steelers, Steelers don’t even have a first round pick. Mike Tomlin we heard it earlier today he was like no big deal, we got our guy, we made a trade and got our first round guy. Some of these organizations it’s how they do business, but the one thing they don’t do is they never go away from taking the best player on the board.”
