I like this draft, I think it’s a sneaky draft that’ll be better down the line.  Justin Houston in the first was taken before the drug test failure became known, he was a tweener/ 1st round bubble guy to begin with, but I do like his fit in Atlanta.  Second round they moved up two picks to secure Randall Cobb, I like him as a compliment to Roddy White I think it’s a good pick.  Third round they got Marcus Gilchrest, CB/S tweener.  I think this addresses a need.  Lawrence Wilson in the fourth is also nice value, he’s a good player that fits their system really well, can be a reserve LB, maybe a rotation guy down the line.  Da’Rell Scott in the fifth is a little high for him, he does have a fast 40 time, and will compliment Turner.  Arkin is a solid pick, small school guy, could have a big impact. Solid draft, not necessarily dynamic, but I think they did very well.
