And now that it's official, the Atlanta Falcons select:
Arkansas RB Darren McFadden.
With the need to both rebuild a team and an image, the Falcons couldn't pass up a chance to bring in arguably the brightest star in this year's draft. Without a true marquee name at QB, and needing far more than one player or one year to turn things around, Atlanta will at least be able to start building around a dynamic player who should re-energize both their offense and their marketing department.
And with 2 second round picks, and now back to back picks in the high 4th round, they are confident they can address their QB,Oline and DT needs later in the draft.
