Buried beneath the rubbish of arguably one of the most exciting offseasons in Falcons history between a substantial amount of action in the FA , the draft and what do ya know the Falcons are going to be on a TV show. Theres the story of a 7th round draft pick with a chance to become a star. That guy is Tyler Starr, the OLB/PassRusher from South Dakota.
Quite honestly this was the only pick in the draft that I liked. And im am completely serious. Tyler Starr is 6'4 250 with a relentless motor and a chip on his shoulder. I love kids like this because he is just thankful to have the opportunity and hungry enough to want more. We've already heard about the impact he has made at OTAs. I think its a no-brainer that he will make the roster. I refuse to believe that the Falcons are going into the season thinking that Johnathan Massoquoi will suddenly turn into Demarcus Ware. And while I love Kroy Beirnman so much, he is player that does every thing well. Theres nothing he's particularly good at. As far as pass rush up the middle goes, I doubt Rashede Hageman even starts week one. Im no where near sold on this guy not in his rookie year at least. So all of that leads me back to one guy, Tyler Starr.
If he can get a little bigger and stronger guys watch out! You heard it from me first!
