Falcons Rookie Minicamp Day Three Recap

Rookie minicamp has concluded for the newest Falcons. Here's a roundup of the news from the third and final day of minicamp.

Kevin C. Cox

Rookie minicamp has concluded for the newest Falcons, and a couple of players really stood out to those in attendance. It is probably not surprising to anyone that Jake Matthews was one of those players. The fact that Atlanta's last pick in the 2014 NFL Draft was the other standout player may be mildly surprising to some. What's particularly interesting, as Jay Adams of notes in his summary of the last day of minicamp, is that Starr was particularly explosive out of the four-point stance.

Head coach Mike Smith even seems to be impressed with the seventh rounder.

ESPN's Vaughn McClure also praised undrafted free agent Jacob Pedersen, a tight end out of Wisconsin.

D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution pointed out in his minicamp wrap-up that Yawin Smallwood and Marquis Spruill spent time at inside linebacker and both seemed to adapt well to the position and the communication it requires.

Another fun fact--Spruill is being asked to bulk up starting now. Vaughn McClure has the details and nine other observations from the final day of rookie minicamp.

Let's let rookie running back Devota Freeman have the final word on rookie minicamp.

What do you think about Atlanta's rookies so far? Who are you most impressed with at this point, based on reports out of minicamp?
