Which Atlanta Falcons Rookies Could Make An Impact In 2014?

3 of 8

DT/DE Ra’Shede Hageman

When we drafted Hageman in the top of the second round, I immediately questioned our strategy.  I thought for sure that the Falcons would take an edge rusher to compliment their new base 3-4 scheme.  Instead of an edge rusher, Dimitroff decided to bring in someone who can literally eat offensive lineman opposite of Tyson Jackson.  Ra’Shede brings with him similar athletic explosiveness to that of Jadeveon Clowney, and could end up being a major steal for Atlanta.  He will definitely contribute from day one in 3-4 sets at DE, and 4-3 sets at DT.
