John Fricke and Hugh Douglas are joined by NFL Insider and SiriusXM Host Adam Caplan to preview the NFL Draft.

Caplan on if the Falcons would trade up to the number eight pick with the Detroit Lions to pick Ed Oliver, “I think you are in the right spot. When you look at the teams that are picking in the Top 10 you are looking at teams that are going to pick based on draft needs. Then you start to look at the teams in the Top 10 that are going to pick defensive tackles. Quinnen Williams will not go past four overall.”

Caplan on who the sleeper edge rusher is in the NFL Draft, “Brian Burns from Florida State. The question with Brian Burns is why he put on so much since the end of the season. His speed off the edge is tremendous. Not a lot of people are talking about him. He is going to go late 1st/Early 2nd and is going to surprise a lot of people.”

Caplan on if Kyle Murray is going to go number one, “I think it’s a lock. Once the Cardinals GM said Josh Rosen is our ‘quarterback for now’ that’s all I needed to know.”

More on Murray, “If Murray doesn’t go number one it changes the entire draft.”

Caplan on who will be the round 1 bust in this year’s draft, “A lot of guys around the league that I have talked to are concerned that Dwayne Haskins won’t be ready to play in the first year.”

Caplan on who the Falcons should take between Christian Wilkins, Jonah Williams, Deandre Baker and Dexter Lawrence, “It has to be Wilkins. He is a plug and play guy and that gives you two really good defensive tackles. You look at their needs and the Falcons have to pick up a defensive end at some point in the draft.”
