My working list of #Falcons OC candidates: 1. Dirk Koetter, 2. Mike Martz, 3. Terry Robiskie, 4. Rick Neuheisel and 5. Brian Billick.
What a list!
I think Mularkey is a decent hire for Jax. They already have a VERY solid defensive core. Mularkey should help them build that offense. Right now, all they have is MJD, a raw rookie QB, and TE Mercedes Lewis. They have no receivers or complementary backs worthy of any note to pair for Jones-Drew.
Thing is, Jacksonville I believe has several DB's that are FA's. I think they'll look to keep defensive stability, but..
If I'm Jacksonville, my draft board has to have WR's and RB high up there. If the Rams take Justin Blackmon at #2 overall, it would not be a shock to see both Kendall Wright and Michael Floyd go in the top 10 as well. The Browns, Vikings, and Redskins could all use a top-flight WR just as much as Jacksonville.
OTC--what do you think of this article?
basic argument is that you should never take a WR in the 1st round. I think they make some good points, but at the same time, I'm not sure. I found this by going off the SI website, where this guy had an article very critical of the ATL Julio Jones trade.
