The Atlanta Falcons’ pick is in, and they have selected running back Tevin Coleman with their third draft choice. Here are your reactions to the Falcons’ first pick of the 2015 NFL Draft.
Coleman is an explosive back and he will fight for every yard.
Atlanta needs to improve a number of areas on their roster if they are to have any chance of winning the NFC South. Have they done so?
Here is some of the reaction from Twitter:
So there we have it, the Falcons have turned to offense and found themselves a powerful running back. In three seasons in Indiana, Coleman rushed 452 times for 3,219 yards and 28 touchdowns. He also added 54 receptions for 383 yards.
The majority of the picks here are positive. There is plenty of reason to believe Coleman can be the workhorse back in the Falcons’ system.
The fact he’s fallen to the third round highlights how deep the class of running backs is this year. The likes of Melvin Gordon, Todd Gurley and Ameer Abdullah have all been taken, but the Falcons have found a possible star themselves.
With young Devonta Freeman also in the backfield, have the Falcons found themselves a dangerous 1-2 punch that will take the offense to a whole new level?
Let us know your thoughts on the pick.
