Atlanta Falcons training camp 2015: First day tweet round up

Fact: Dan Quinn can only smell out of his right nostril

The Atlanta Falcons havee officially finished day one of their 2015 training camp. Huzzah! It was an eventful day, so let's run down some of the highlights.

We all have our reasons to look forward to training camp. The DW is no exception.

Vic Beasley cramped up early on in practice. He was hobbled after running downfield on special teams. It was a scary moment, but he quickly shook it off, returning to practice.

It sounds like the offensive line is going to work hard this season. We knew the conversion to a zone blocking scheme wouldn't be easy, but these guys really do have a long road ahead. The coaching staff is wasting no time getting them up to speed.

That said, the Falcons may not be 100 percent comfortable with their existing personnel. They may look to add some additional depth to the offensive front in the weeks ahead.

The starting secondary may be a little fluid this year. With camp battles at free safety and cornerback, we're sure to see several different combinations in training camp.

It's always scary when your presumptive starter at right tackle goes down. Ryan Schraeder had a "strain" that the coaches seemed to downplay.

There's going to be a whole lot of talk about Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman, but don't overlook seasoned veteran Antone Smith. By all accounts, he's healthy and looks great.

We now have a sense of what it will take to get through a Dan Quinn training camp. He's emphasizing effort above all else. Make your mistakes now, when it doesn't count.

That was just the first day, folks. There's a whole lot of practicing and camp battlin' ahead. So strap in and get comfortable, because it's going to be quite the ride.
