When the Atlanta Falcons start up rookie mini-camp a little later on today, it will be the first vaguely on-the-field thing we've had the opportunity to talk about in months. I dunno about you, but I've been starved.
This is a general purpose open thread to talk about these 17 rookies vying for a shot at something bigger than a week working out for the team.
Here's the complete list, from the Official Site:
Florida Atlantic QB Graham Wilbert
Eastern Kentucky S Brooklyn Fox
Alabama State DB Saeed Lee
West Georgia DB Kelly Dawsey
Harvard RB Trevor Scales
Alabama State DB Kejuan Riley
Georgia RB Richard Samuel
Fresno State LB Shawn Plummer
Georgia Tech LS Tyler Morgan
Arkansas-Pine Bluff LB Bill Ross
Central Arkansas OL Corey Howard
Middlebury OL Ryan Moores
Middle Tennessee State OL Micah James
Eastern Washington OL Will Post
Lindenwood WR Andrew Helmick
Tennessee-Martin WR Quentin Sims
Syracuse WR Marcus Sales
There's some interesting names on here, and the Falcons have loaded up on secondary, offensive line, wide receiver and running back for these. One or two or perhaps more may even push for practice squad spots.
