Falcoholinks: All the Falcons news you need for Monday, Feb. 25

It’s NFL Combine time.

NFL: Atlanta Falcons at Philadelphia Eagles Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Draft Scouting

The NFL Combine kicks off tomorrow, giving us a week’s worth of NFL-related action. There will be risers and fallers and guys running 40-yards real fast, and we’ll of course be tuned in with a keen eye on the performance of the prospects that could be on Atlanta’s radar.

With a bevy of players attending the Combine, The Falcoholic’s Kevin Knight has been scouting the positional groups that may be addressed during the draft. Offensive tackle, the interior O-line, running back, and tight end position are all possibilities on Draft Day, so be sure to check-in on Kevin’s always astute scouting reports for these Combine attendees.

Trade Forecasting

Draft Day traditionally provides some additional intrigue in the form of trades, and if Thomas Dimitroff (a man who loves a good trade) gets his way, what moves could the Falcons make to add to their defensive line? Cory Woodroof took a stab at some potential moves during the 2019 NFL Draft.

Forgotten Falcons

Another week, and another couple of entries in our offseason Forgotten Falcons series. This week we looked at the Atlanta career of a 2008 free agency acquisition in the secondary, and an undersized return specialist from the late-nineties.

A Clash on Crossfire

Your favorite new podcast is back, with Eric Robinson defending his title against guest combatant Aaron Freeman of The debate was lively, as usual, as the two went head-to-head on a litany of topics. Be sure to vote for the victor once you’ve listened!

Blidi Back

After cutting Robert Alford and allowing Brian Poole to walk, the cornerback position was suddenly thin. The Falcons addressed that lack of depth on Friday, signing veteran corner Blidi Wreh-Wilson to a one-year deal. Wreh-Wilson has always played particularly well when given the opportunity to see the field, so it was a smart move to bring him back to bolster the cornerback corps.
