A few things stand out about this list. First, between the draft and the three undrafted prospects the team is bringing in, that's a lot of linebackers. Secondly, there is a receiver named Julian Jones. A friend of The Falcoholic, StevefromBrooklyn, has some good advice for everyone.
Be VERY VERY careful with your fantasy football drafting this year RT @vxmcclure23 Falcons now have a receiver named Julian Jones.— Steve (@SteveInBrooklyn) May 12, 2014
There are quite a few intriguing prospects on this list. The Falcons have Roosevelt Nix listed as a fullback, but he was a beast of a defensive player in college, posting 48 sacks over four years at Kent State. Donte Rumpf is gigantic, 6'3" and 320 pounds, and could be a backup to Paul Soliai. Also, I guess the Falcons really like tight ends from Wisconsin.
Which players on this list stand out to you? Who do you think will have the greatest chance of making the 53-man roster?
