NFL RUSH
Draft Smack: Falcons vs. Saints

Passions run deep in the South! The folks in Atlanta and New Orleans LOVE their Falcons and their Saints. 

 

But these two NFC South rivals do not like each other.

 
So which one gets to talk the smack of having a better draft?
 

Atlanta Falcons Draft Highlights

With their first pick the Atlanta Falcons selected OT Jake Matthews. Matthews is not only a big, strong, and talented blocker but he's also the son of NFL Hall of Famer Bruce Matthews.

  

On defense, they added the giant DT Ra'Shede Hagemana, a hard-hitting S Dezmond Southward and helped their linebacker corps by taking Prince Shembo.  


Fourth round pick, RB Devonta Freeman is a tough runner with pass-catching abilities.

 

New Orleans Saints Draft Highlights

As if they needed another weapon on offense, the New Orleans Saints took game-breaking WR Brandin Cooks with their first pick.  


Their defense got an infusion of talent with the additions of big and physical DB Stanley Jean-Baptiste, thumping LB Khairi Fortt and S Vinnie Sunseri.



Which of these two rivals had the better draft?

    Saints got a wespon, but falcons improved on a bad OL, So Matty Ice can make a pass now. They can finally sack with new LB.

    It doesn't matter about the draft, it matters about veterans. Every draft pick should be a backup for one year. But I think Saints had the best draft. #BRANDINCOOKS!
