ESPN NFL Draft Analyst and Executive Director of the Senior Bowl Jim Nagy joined John and Hugh on Monday and talked about how strong this years OL class is and if that could shape the Falcons use of their 1st round pick

"This is a really strong offensive line class, it's been down for years, and it's looking like it will be thin again next year. I could see 10-12 offensive lineman go in the first round," Nagy said before continuing, "even if it's not the philosophy in Atlanta, I think it would be really smart (to draft OL), there's going to be starter level players into the 3rd round at DL, so that's a need they can address later."

Nagy also feels that the two names most discussed at corner aren't the most talented cover guys in the draft.

"I'm lower on Greedy and Baker than most people are. The one corner that really sticks out is Rock Ya-Sin from Temple."
