Tevin Coleman breakdown

The Falcons have found themselves a possible first round talent in the third round with running back Tevin Coleman. Vaughn McClure of ESPN breaks down the pick.

"“The Falcons addressed defense with their first two picks in drafting pass rusher Vic Beasley from Clemson and cornerback Jalen Collins from LSU. With Coleman, the Falcons addressed a need in the backfield. Coleman was a 2,000-yard rusher for the Hoosiers and told me he should be considered the best running back in the 2015 NFL Draft.”"

Coleman intriguing fit

Joe Soriano of NFL Spin Zone believes Coleman is an intriguing pick for the Falcons.

"“In the third round, the Falcons got their man at running back by drafting Tevin Coleman, who was viewed by many as the top back behind top-20 picks Todd Gurley and Melvin Gordon.”"

Day 3 Predictions

Who will the Falcons select on day three? Scott Carasik of Bleacher Report gives his predictions.

"“Atlanta’s biggest starting need remaining is at left guard, but other than that, it has almost all of the starting roles in the offense and defense taken. Depth and future talent throughout the roster needs to be enhanced through the third day of the draft.”"
