404area has new update 1 day ago Daniel Jeremiah’s 2nd 2024 NFL mock draft: Falcons draft a quarterback
Photo by Perry Knotts/Getty Images Finally, some good news in a mock. Right? It is mock draft season and, in all honestly, any mock sending a quarterback to the Falcons is notable. It has been a loooooong time since Falcons fans have seen anything close to respectable quarterback play, and an even longer time since the Falcons made the playoffs. It really should be time to fix both problems. Enter: Daniel Jeremiah’s mock draft. NFL dot com analyst Daniel Jeremiah is a former scout, and long-time current NFL Draft analyst, who has wide-ranging sources across the league. In fact, we cover his mock drafts here pretty regularly, because he tends to make them based on what he’s hearing around the league rather than simply what he thinks is a good fit. Just to do a quick check, let’s circle back on Jeremiah’s mocks I could easily pull up we covered. 2015: Amari Cooper (Falcons took Vic Beasley) 2016: Shaq Lawson (Falcons took Keanu Neal) 2017: TJ Watt (Let’s not discuss this) 2018: Taven Bryan (Falcons took Calvin Ridley) 2021: Trey Lance and Justin Fields (Falcons took Kyle Pitts) 2023: Lukas Van Ness (Falcons took Bijan Robinson) That’s a lot of misses, but I should mention that Jeremiah does a handful of mocks every year. Assuming he doesn’t just roll out the same mock every time, those names change from time to time. I say all of that to say his selection for the Atlanta Falcons is alarming and concerning to me. Here’s his pick from his second mock of the offseason: A lot of people around the NFL expect the Falcons to be aggressive when it comes to finding a quarterback in this year’s draft. They could trade up or, as they do in this case, stay at No. 8 and bet on [Michigan’s J.J.] McCarthy’s traits. Yikes. That’s a grim pick with the Falcons only spots away from the likes of Jayden Daniels. First, Jeremiah references a lot of room for trades in the 2024 NFL Draft. But Jeremiah doesn’t start predicting trades until his last mock draft of the year. After Atlanta’s quarterback play last year, and the year before, I’m not sure the team can stick at 8 and wait for the draft come to it. After all, the last guy tried that and he was fired about six nanoseconds into Black Monday. Secondly, J.J. McCarthy may not be highly regarded in all scouting reports from draft analysts, but there are early rumors indicating McCarthy is well-regarded around the league. Scouts (who I cannot stress enough, should not be believed to represent any consensus) compared him to Joe Burrow, while many rumors and mocks are frequently placing him in the top half of the first round. Ultimately, the Wolverines never had McCarthy do too much, while having a supporting cast the Falcons would hope to offer. On the other side of the coin, SB Nation analyst and confirmed Michigan hater Joeanna Kelley said McCarthy is not a top-10 pick. For context, Michigan beat No. 2 Ohio State 30-24 in November. McCarthy could be one of the “late risers” that get pushed up because of the need for quarterbacks. We’ve seen it happen recently with Trey Lance and Zach Wilson, or less recently with the likes of Justin Herbert. The Falcons, if somehow stuck between Desmond Ridder and McCarthy, would likely be hoping he comes through more like Herbert than Wilson. For the Falcons, it feels unlikely the team sticks at 8 if it is looking for its quarterback of the future in the draft.
Peachtree Hoops has new update
1 day ago Hawks gear up for final stretch of season
Photo by Scott Cunningham/NBAE via Getty Images The Hawks have a difficult schedule to end the season; let’s break it down. The Atlanta Hawks, it’s safe to say, haven’t enjoyed the season they’ve wanted to up to this point at the All-Star break. The Hawks sit 10th in the Eastern Conference with a record of 24-31, and they occupy a weird space where, barring massive upswings in form for either themselves or their rivals, they are basically all set for a 9-10 Play-In tie with Chicago Bulls. Atlanta is two games adrift of the Bulls for ninth, six games adrift of the Orlando Magic in eighth, with another 2.5 games ahead of the struggling Brooklyn Nets, who have just made a coaching change, so it’s possible they could see a turn in form under Kevin Ollie. Or is it as simple as all that? What does the road ahead look like for the Hawks? Let’s take a look at the Hawks’ remaining schedule across February, March, and April and see how things are laid out and if there’s any hope of at least having home court for a Play-In game. Starting with the remainder of February: Total games: 4 Home games: 3 Road games: 1 Back-to-backs: 0 Longest road trip: 1 game Longest homestand: 3 games Opponent winning percentage: 43% A light return to action for the Hawks, all things considered — three of these four games against Eastern Conference opponents who surround the Hawks in the standings. The Magic and Raptors are on opposite ends of the spectrum of Atlanta reach, with wins or losses either way not likely to change matters significantly. However, the Brooklyn game does have some bearing on affairs, as the Hawks have the chance to put them at distance — denting Nets’ hopes of making the Play-In game — and a loss keeps Brooklyn within touching distance. The two sides have produced close games this season, the Hawks prevailing in overtime by two points in November (Mikal Bridges going for 45 points) and the Nets securing a one point victory in December with Bridges scoring the winner with five seconds remaining, so this will be a match of intrigue. The Hawks will also welcome John Collins for his first game back in Atlanta since being traded last year as the Utah Jazz roll into town. The Jazz are also in urgent need of a victory with their own Play-In prospects beginning to look a little bleaker as their struggles have coincided with the Lakers and Warriors finding some form, so there will be pressure for the Hawks to take care of business. Now onto March: Total games: 15 Home games: 7 Road games: 8 Back-to-backs: 2 Longest road trip: 5 game Longest homestand: 5 games Average projected opponent winning percentage: 52.6% Safe to say a very difficult March lies ahead for the Hawks. Some very winnable games, such as the two games against the Trail Blazers, a game against the struggling Hornets and Grizzlies, but basically everything else on the table is a lot more difficult in prospect. Another hugely important game against the Nets to begin the month — either to strike back or to extend the advantage. If the Hawks can win both of those game against the Nets, it’s basically a done deal that the Hawks will be back in the Play-In. But it’s hard to escape all of those good teams after that: the Knicks, the Cavs and the Pelicans are all playoff-bound teams before the Hawks embark on a five-game Western Conference trip with three tough games to end on in L.A. and Phoenix. While a five game homestand awaits the Hawks when they return, it can’t exactly be called a pleasant homecoming: two of those fixtures are against the league-leading Boston Celtics, as well as the Milwaukee Bucks. The one saving grace, potentially, for the Hawks in those Boston fixtures is that with the lead the Celtics currently enjoy, they may already be deciding to rest some key members prior to the playoffs — but that’s mere speculation as of right now. Finally, to April: Total games: 8 Home games: 3 Road games: 5 Back-to-backs: 2 Longest road trip: 2 games Longest homestand: 2 games Average projected opponent winning percentage: 48.8% This is not the easiest of weeks to finish, including road games against playoff-bound teams as well as an early preview of the likely Play-In game with the Bulls which both teams will likely know prior to the game itself. Will they face each other at full strength or keep something in reserve for the Play-In game? Some very winnable games at home to the Pistons and Hornets will help boost the Hawks’ win tally, but will it be enough to either put them in a position to overturn the Bulls or stay ahead of the Nets? In terms of strength of schedule, the Hawks have the 16th most difficult schedule remaining, 50.2%. The Bulls are right alongside the Hawks at 17th, but it’s the Brooklyn Nets that are an interesting mix here: they have the second easiest schedule remaining and face the Pistons twice, the Raptors three times and the Grizzlies twice, as well as the Hornets and Wizards. While many will be quick (for very good reason) to pencil the Hawks into a Play-In matchup against the Bulls, it may not as simple as that. There’s a tricky schedule ahead for the Hawks with the Nets not a million miles away, and now with a coaching change, there is a possibility that the Hawks have to factor the Nets into the equation. But how much so will certainly depend on those two early games they play against each other in the run-in here. That’s how the road ahead looks for the Atlanta Hawks. Do they have another level to reach, or is their destiny set no matter what they discover after the break? We shall soon see...
