Ryan to the Falcons at No. 3

With the No. 3 Overall Pick in the NFL Draft

The Atlanta Falcons select…

Matt Ryan, Quarterback, Boston College.

Ryan is 6’4” 228 lbs and ran a 4.92 40-yard dash.

Ryan did a lot at Boston College with very little around him. 4,500 yards passing in his senior year. But he also threw 19 interceptions. That worries me and I might have trouble selecting a quarterback this high in the draft, and for the Falcons, who will be basing an entire franchise around him, this is a huge risk. 

I think Brian Brohm is the best quarterback in this draft. That’s no slight to Ryan, who I think will be a good pro. I just think Brohm is being undervalued here and the Falcons might have been better off to wait until the back end of the first round to take their quarterback. 

Now at No. 4 will Al Davis take the speed demon in Darren McFadden?
