The outstanding question with Bradie Ewing, all along, was whether or not he would be healthy enough and effective enough to seize the starting role he was drafted for a year ago.
We appear to have our answer, in an AJC item from last week quoting Mike Smith:
"Bradie has made a very swift recovery from the ACL injury that he had during the season. He’s way ahead of schedule. He’s 100 percent and I think he’s probably better now than he was when he got here in terms of his strength. He’s done a great job with Marty and A.J. in our athletic performance group. He’ looks really good.”
He'll still have to win an honest competition, but the Falcons didn't spend a draft pick on Ewing because they didn't like him. An excellent blocker with some athleticism, he has to be considered the favorite to be the team's full-time fullback.
Your thoughts on Ewing?
