Dirty Bird Daily: Latest Atlanta Falcons News


Good morning, Falcons fans. Do the Atlanta Falcons have the worst offensive line in the NFL? Will Tevin Coleman be a ‘boom’ pick? That and more in today’s Dirty Bird Daily.

Do the Falcons have the worst offensive line? — Vaughn McClure of ESPN

"Do the Atlanta Falcons have the NFC South’s worst offensive line? They made improvements last season with the addition of Jake Matthews, but the group still had trouble. Now the linemen have to adjust to a new scheme under offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan."

RB Coleman viewed as ‘potential boom pick’ — Andrew Hirsh of AtlantaFalcons.com

"WalterFootball.com, one of the more reputable independent NFL publications, awarded Thomas Dimitroff and the Falcons a B for their seven selections, and has been especially impressed with their third round choice, Tevin Coleman."

Ranking the NFL’s top 10 return specialists — Ian Wharton of Bleacher Report

"The role of specialists in the NFL has evolved as rules have changed in recent seasons. When a player is a masterful return man but offers nothing else to the team, his roster spot could be in danger. But return specialists can still offer great value in the limited chances they have."

Falcons: Who’s the best TE in 2015? — John Buhler of ATL All Day

"The Atlanta Falcons look to improve on a down year from their tight ends in 2014.  The team was not able to replace the production that came from former All-Pro TE Tony Gonzalez who retired after the 2013 NFL Season."

Falcons linebacking core needs to become more consistent — Jake Perper of Today’s Pigskin

"Worrilow will be joined by No. 8 overall pick Vic Beasley Jr. and offseason addition Brooks Reed. Beasley gives the Falcons a huge boost at outside linebacker. He will likely man the weakside in his rookie year while Reed will lineup at strongside."
