NEW YORK -- When the Atlanta Falcons moved a pile of picks to the Browns to grab Julio Jones, GM Thomas Dimitroff said, "We are not one player away from anything." He's probably right.
But in the fifth round, Atlanta got another player closer towards being that much more explosive offensively, when they drafted Oregon State running back Jacquizz Rodgers.
Shortly after the pick, highlights from Rodgers' career with the Beavers started flashing on the big screen and the crowd went nuts -- as they should have, because Rodgers was plowing over people, breaking ankles and fighting his way into the end zone.
Is he likely to be a feature back in the NFL? Probably not. But the Falcons have Michael Turner to be their main guy and Rodgers just might compliment Turner perfectly.
The knock on the Atlanta Falcons heading into 2011 was a lack of offensive explosiveness. With their addition of Jones and Rodgers to the skill positions, that problem could already be eliminated.
And the Falcons, despite having given up some substantial future draft picks, might have suddenly revamped their entire offense in an offseason that wasn't supposed to be made for revamping.
