Round 7 – FS Tre Boston – North Carolina 

After an atrocious 2013 campaign, the Falcons could decide to save $3 million by parting ways with Free Safety Thomas DeCoud.

Tre Boston is a playmaker with sound coverage abilities.  He isn’t the best tackler, but he isn’t afraid to come up and at least slow down the ball carrier and make it easier for his teammates to bring him down.

Atlanta may rather attempt to pursue FS Jairus Byrd this offseason, but for now, Boston looks to be a solid prospect here in the 7th.
