The newest Atlanta Falcons pass rusher Takkarist McKinley is one bad, bad man. And no, I’m not talking about his “fine me later” attitude. His success in college is dangerously close to being off the charts.
Pro Football Focus gave us this handy dandy chart, which has McKinley as far and away the most successful rusher of every edge player.

McKinley pressured the quarterback on an insane 21.24% of plays, easily blowing out his nearest competition. We aren’t sure exactly what to expect from his rookie season, with the rookie wall compounded by his injury, but these numbers suggest he has a great chance at making a big impact.
