    With the 6th overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Atlanta Falcons have selected Alabama WR Julio Jones. Julio Jones was a three-year starter who was awarded all-Conference honors since his freshman season and named an All-American last year. When focused in on his game, Jones can be a one-man show at receiver and looks unstoppable. However, inconsistency remains a significant question. Jones possesses all the tools necessary to be a top receiver in the NFL if he remains focused on the field and plays to his level of ability.

    Atlanta gave up a boatload for Jones. I like the selection, but I like Cleveland's half better...1,2,4 in 2011 draft, 1, 4 in 2012. Damn...

    sounds like an old saints deal.
  8. come on guys it was hardly the whole draft. *rolls eyes* you saints fans need to get ready. Imho this move makes atl the favorite to win the super bowl.

    What? Not sure how a rookie receiver makes them the favorites now. Roddy White and Julio Jones will be lethal, but come on.

    Was willing to give up some picks on AJ, and the news that Atl was close to having a deal done w/Cinci made me sick, but haven't been sold on Jones. Thought he was overrated for a while.

    I think it's a great pick for the Falcons. Not sure the price they paid was worth it. Obviously they have the win NOW attitude...but I initially feel like Cleveland got the better end of that trade. What the Browns do with those picks is another question.

    I think they could have gotten a better proven wr like lets say Fitzgerald for all they gave up. Know thaey can't pick any defensive help. Which they desperatly need
