  1. Evan Silva, do you ever proof-read what you post?
    This statement is false, “1989 No. 5 overall selection Deion Sanders was arguably the best draft pick in Falcons franchise history.”
    I point you to the 1991 draft, Round 2, No. 6 selection by the Falcons: Brett Favre.
    Although, you might have posted it to get people to comment on your post. If that is so, then you probably accomplished that.

  2. Girthy- you aren’t too bright are you?
    1. He said “arguably” which makes it a correct statement.
    2. Favre wasn’t great FOR the Falcons, Sanders was.

  3. Thanks for the mention Evan. I appreciate it.
    As for the Falcons Best Draft Pick article, LiKWid SiLVer is right. I based the criteria on what the draft pick did for the Falcons and not what they did for other teams. Favre wasn’t around long to make the list.
    Thanks for reading.
