The Falcons missed out on a promising tackle prospect in the supplemental draft. The St. Louis Rams decided to take forfeit a draft pick to select Isaiah Battle, per Adam Schefter.
Former Clemson OT Isaiah Battle goes in 5th round of NFL Supplemental draft to...St. Louis Rams.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) July 9, 2015
Battle, who stands at an imposing 6'7" and clocked in at 320 pounds at his pro day earlier this week, found himself off the Clemson team after some murky issues, including citations for marijuana use. He's easily the best supplemental draft prospect since Josh Gordon, and while no one's suggesting he has a Gordonesque level of risk, there are question marks here. He also had a fairly short career in Clemson and was not necessarily a standout player.
Battle had been linked to the Falcons and was the most intriguing supplemental draft prospect. Were you hoping for Atlanta to land Battle?
