2105 Atlanta Falcons Draft Pick Analysis
by The Game
#8: Vic Beasley, DE, Clemson
The Falcons haven’t drafted or had a pass rusher like Vic Beasley since John Arbraham.
Beasley give the Falcons a athletic pass rusher who can come off the and edge create havoc for opposing team offense. He will play the LEO in Dan Quinn 4/3 defense.
#42: Jalen Collins, CB, LSU
Jalen is a tall physical cornerback who has the speed to press cover the way Dan Quinn likes for his corners to play.
There are question about Jalen past failed drug test but he will more than likely be the starting cornerback.
#73: Tevin Coleman, RB, Indiana
Coleman has the size and speed to become a good running back in the falcons zone blocking scheme. He has the ability to be patience and wait on the offensive line to make their blocks.
He lacks great vision but that will come with coaching and experience.
#107: Justin Hardy, WR, ECU
Hardy is a slot receiver. He's what the Falcons need when Matt Ryan get in trouble. He not an elite receiver and he doesn't have burning speed but he's quick and has good hands.
With the lack of a good slot receiver on the roster, Hardy has good blocking skills that will
get him playing time on the field. He most likely will be a core special team player.
#137: Grady Jarrett, DT, Clemson
Jarrett is a low to the ground player that disrupt the offensive line.He's very active and has the potential to be a interior force on the defensive line.
He has the skill set to be three down player and great genes, Jessie Tuggle is his dad, who played Middle linebacker for the Falcons for 14 years.
#225: Jake Rodgers, OL, Eastern Washington
Jake Rodgers is a project right now and with the help of this coaching staff will more than likely be a serviceable offensive guard. He will see very little
action this year and may end up on the practice squad.
#249: Akeem King, S, San Jose State
King is the type of player that Quinn is looking for to groom into good or great safety or cornerback. He has the height (6"3), good range, good speed and the physicality to be a good player.
