With the draft finally behind us, the next phase in putting together the 90-man roster for camp is the signing of college free agents. The minutes after the close of the draft are hectic, as teams scramble to sign players who were dubbed "priority" free agents. With that, the Falcons made 22 of the signings official today.

UGA fans will recognize the name Josh Dawson, who played DE for the team. In his time at UGA, he netted 38 tackles and 6.5 tackles for loss. Fellow teammate Chris Mays - a nose tackle - has also been signed.
The Falcons are also bringing in several offensive lineman, no doubt in hopes of shoring up the depth of the unit. Alex Fifita (Fresno State), Cody Elenz (Lamar), and Jake Reed (Indiana) will compete for a spot on the final 53.
There are several interesting prospects on the list and we'll no doubt have analysis in the coming days of names you may want to pay attention to during camp.
What are your thoughts on the Falcons free agents?
