NFL Network draft analyst Charles Davis joined Dukes & Bell to talk about the 2019 NFL draft, and what players might fit our Falcons at the fourteenth pick.

Davis said he doesn’t see any way Kyler Murray isn’t the first player taken next Thursday.

 “I don’t see where it goes any other way at this point." Davis said "I know the Cardinals have said they haven’t made up there mind, that’s fine say what you have to say, but can you imagine a scenario where the Cardinals announce they’ve drafted Nick Bosa number 1 overall? Bosa to me is the best player in the draft but there has been no real indication from the Cardinals to hit the brakes on them drafting Kyler Murray.”

Charles told the guys what defensive tackles fit the Falcons in the draft.

  “Ed Oliver thing is going to be very interesting." Davis said "He fits a lot of things that Dan Quinn likes to do with the speed and getting up the field, but he may not make it out of the top 8 right now. Dexter Lawrence is great but I feel he is a two down player and that’s why I like Christian Wilkins better for what I feel the Falcons like to do.”

When asked about potential defensive ends that the Falcons might take at 14.

 "Clelin Ferrell would be there at 4." Davis said "He’s not a dynamic pass rusher so to speak, but he’s fundamentally sound, he reminds me of when Joey Bosa came out and people said he’s really good but can he get you more than 8 sacks and we saw how that worked out for the Chargers."
