The Falcons agreed to terms with third-rounder Deadrin Senat today—just in time for rookie minicamp, which begins tomorrow. That means the team will have at least three defensive tackles in their rotation to start spring workouts.

Senat, the bulky defensive tackle out of USF enters 2018 as the heir-apparent to Dontari Poe’s spot adjacent Grady Jarrett on Atlanta’s front four. Built like a D-battery, Deadrin Senat figures to be a big part of the Falcons’ plans on the defensive line. If you haven’t checked out our own Eric Robinson’s scouting report on Senat, now’s the appropriate time to do so.

Senat is now under contract for the next four years for a tad under $2.5 million, leaving Calvin Ridley as the only Atlanta draftee yet to put pen to paper. Ever the optimists here at The Falcoholic, we expect that contract to be signed within the next week.

Deadrin Senat is now officially a member of the Atlanta Falcons — we expect big things from the big man.
