Atlanta Falcons: 19 Undrafted FA Signings Confirmed
Atlanta Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff hit a home run in the 2015 NFL Draft, judging it on paper. They have been busy since adding undrafted free agents to the roster.
The Falcons have confirmed the signings of 19 undrafted free agents, per Jay Adams of AtlantaFalcons.com.
It will be interesting to see how these players perform in rookie minicamps and training camp, and it will be equally interesting to see how many make the 53-man roster later in the year.
The Falcons are coming off the back of what appears to be a great draft. The additions of Vic Beasley, Jalen Collins and Grady Jarrett to the defense should really help the unit, while Tevin Coleman and Justin Hardy are good acquisitions on the offensive side of things.

It would appear Dimitroff is not done, and they will be looking to find players who can contribute in the future under Dan Quinn.
There appears to be an even spread of players on offense and defense. Three defensive tackles were picked up as undrafted free agents, as well as three cornerbacks. It’s possible the Falcons could be looking for some added depth.
