After Cameron and Gresham, there really is no one worth picking up in free agency for the Atlanta Falcons. Maybe after failing to pick up Niles Paul and Lance Kendricks, Dimitroff has his sights set on targets through the draft.

There is talent in the draft too, but of course tight ends that comes out of college are a huge risk.

Possible targets include:

  • Maxx Williams, Minnesota: ” Makes tough catches seem routine and produces highlight reel plays seemingly game in and game out. Registering eight TD’s in a run heavy offense, Williams is a mismatch waiting to happen especially in the red zone at 6’4, 250.”
  • Jeff Heuerman, Ohio State: “Underutilized in the Ohio State offense most of his career, he did have 10 TD his last two years in Columbus and could blossom in a tight end friendly NFL offense. The one Kyle Shanahan will install featured Jordan Cameron in Cleveland the past two seasons.”
