Takk McKinley is kicking asses left and right at training camp

New, comments

Atlanta’s first round pick was cleared to play two days ago and has already been making a ton of plays.

We typically try to temper expectations for rookies. It’s easy to forget that regardless of how good they were in college, it takes a lot to get up to NFL speed. In Takk McKinley’s situation, he’s coming off shoulder surgery and only started with team drills in the last 48 hours.

It’s been an eventful 48 hours.

McKinley off to a nice start showing some speed and power in drills.

That was no fluke. Early reports are McKinley looks like an early contributor. From what we have seen so far in camp, he plays angry. Temper expectations, but this defensive line could be nasty this year.
