Folks, Atlanta Falcons training camp is just two days away! While several teams have already gotten underway in their respective camps, the Falcons are preparing to brave the Georgia heat and start building the roster for 2015. Training camp is exciting in many ways. It gives a chance to up and coming players to compete for a job as well as allows the fans to come out and get a taste of what’s to come for free!

‘The Branch’ is one of a kind. Located about one hour north of Atlanta, the Falcons’ practice facility is located in Flowery Branch, Georgia. Anyone and everyone is welcome to come out and watch practice which will last from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm on most days. The food is dirty cheap. Almost everything is just a dollar and the camaraderie is priceless.

On top of watching the Falcons put on a show, you will also get to grab some great autographs at the end of practice. Feel free to bring anything you want to get autographed. Footballs, pictures, hats and even pizza boxes. Yes, pizza boxes. There isn’t a schedule as to who signs and who doesn’t which is a little disappointing, but you are guaranteed to get a few sick autographs from your favorites no matter what day you go.

To make your experience even better, I, Colin Hubbard will be on hand for practice almost every day. Feel free to hit me up on twitter and meet up with me at any time during camp! Now, let’s get into some battles at every position that you should look for while at camp.
