Robert McClain: Falcons Cornerback By Day, Artist By Night

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

And I think we know which one pays the bills.

You all know Robert McClain the football player.

Originally a late seventh-round draft pick of the Carolina Panthers back in 2010, "Bobby Mac" has seen his best NFL days with the Falcons. The 5'9 UConn product has done a solid job the past two seasons as Atlanta's primary slot cornerback and, more recently, a punt returner.

But there's a Bobby Mac you may not know, too. In his spare time, McClain has been working to develop his creative side. If his drawing of Katy Perry tells us anything, he's done a surprisingly great job of that.

First-rate skills, especially for a beginner.

And that's far from McClain's only work of art. He actually has his own website dedicated to showcasing his drawings, and the subjects are pretty darn diverse, ranging from Elmo to sneakers to Kim Jong Il flipping us the nuclear bird.

We also have an awesome throwback sketch of Dragonball Z. So much nostalgia.

McClain can even get all deep and existential on us.

I'll call it "The Heart of the Atlanta Sports Fan." As for McClain, just call him Atlanta's resident Renaissance man. Impressive, no?
