The Falcons signed former Stanford tight end Levine Toilolo today.

Tight end Levine Toilolo, a fourth-round draft pick from Stanford, signed a four-year contract with the Falcons on Tuesday.

Toilolo, 6-foot-8 and 265 pounds, was selected 133rd overall in the 2013 draft.

He caught 50 passes for 763 yards (15.3 yards per catch) with 10 touchdowns in his 31-game college career.

If you're keeping track, this means the Falcons have signed five of their eight draft picks. Thomas Dimitroff made his intentions regarding Toilolo very clear at the State of the Franchise event. Basically the Falcons would like Toilolo to be the Falcons' tight end of the future. He will have a chance to learn from the best, with Tony Gonzalez assisting in his development while taking the majority of the snaps in single tight end sets.

Toilolo is a solid blocker and an immediate red zone threat. If anything, he needs to improve in the slot, but that can and will come with time.
