Falcons Draft 2015: Fans React to Grady Jarrett Pick on Twitter


The Atlanta Falcons have selected defensive tackle Grady Jarrett in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft after trading up with the Minnesota Vikings.

Atlanta gave up a sixth round pick as part of the deal, but they have found themselves a talented defensive tackle with Jarrett. Jarrett will be reunited with his Clemson teammate, Vic Beasley.

This is what Lance Zierlein of NFL.com had to say about Jarrett:

"“Jarrett lacks ideal size for his position but he makes up for it with outstanding quickness, leverage and effort. Against the run, he has the foot quickness to shoot gaps and disrupt and he can stack single blocks at the point of attack. If he gets caught by angle blocks, he lacks the sand to avoid being washed down the line of scrimmage. As a pass rusher, he has an array of quick hand moves and he is relentless with his motor. He should start very early in his NFL career and be a disruptive player versus both the run and pass.”"

After the trade, here are the Falcons full list of picks, as well as their remaining two picks, barring any trades:

Round 1, Pick 8 (8): OLB Vic Beasley, Clemson
Round 2, Pick 10 (42): CB Jalen Collins, LSU
Round 3, Pick 9 (73): RB Tevin Coleman, Indiana
Round 4, Pick 8 (107): WR Justin Hardy, East Carolina
Round 5, Pick 1 (137): DT Grady Jarrett, Clemson
Round 7, Pick 8 (225)
Round 7, Pick 32 (249)
