Falcons bringing in Alabama's Reggie Ragland for two day visit

The team might get a lot more physical.

One of the favorite mock draft picks for the Atlanta Falcons has been Alabama's Reggie Ragland. Ragland was dominant at Alabama, and the intimidating middle linebacker would fix the problem created way back when Curtis Lofton left.

The Falcons are widely expected to address the position early in the draft, and according to ESPN's Vaughn McClure, Ragland is spending two days with the Falcons brain trust.

Alabama linebacker Reggie Ragland is scheduled to visit the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday and Monday, according to a league source.

The team is likely considering Ragland to remedy Atlanta's struggling run defense, but many evaluators have questioned his speed. Will he be a liability in passing situations that could cause the team to consider Ohio's athletic but raw Darron Lee?

Do not be surprised if the team brings Lee in for a visit as they try to decide which of these two top linebackers will best fit on the roster.
