The moment every Atlanta Falcons fan has waited 4.5 months for is finally here – the 2019 NFL draft. Like a roller coaster, there are sure to be ups, downs, turns and moments that scare you.
Today speculation becomes reality; today Atlanta Falcons fans will welcome in new members to the Brotherhood. A reminder, whether you agree with the pick or hate the pick, exercise nobility and respect toward those chosen by Thomas Dimitroff and trust that the reason behind their selection is due to thousands of hours of scouting and interviewing and not made on a whim.
Trust that starters will be found and depth will be had over the next several days. Believe that each of these young men bring something the franchise that the Falcons do not already have. Hope that these 22 to 24 year olds are meant to help bring a Super Bowl championship to the city of Atlanta.
Keanu Neal and Deion Jones have shown we do not have to like the pick for them to become instant impact players and stars in the National Football League. Grady Jarrett has shown that you can find top talent deep in this draft and Damontae Kazee has shown you do not need to come from a school in the Power 5 to help an NFL franchise.
Whether Thomas Dimitroff and the Falcons move into the Top 5, move back into the mid 20’s or stay put at 14, there is a plan of attack and the ultimate end goal is help this franchise get to Miami in February and bring the city of Atlanta its first ever Lombardi trophy.
Enjoy the next few days and the roller coaster of emotions; chances are you will experience many of them.
