Jones continues to have a stellar camp and hauls in nearly every catch with ease. Leonard Hankerson finally has a quarterback capable of throwing him the ball and rookie Hardy is starting to come into his own. Hankerson gives the Falcons a big body with solid speed and could be White’s replacement once he hangs it up. At just 26 years old, Hankerson appears to have a lot of life left in him. Hardy has struggled at times, but has caught nearly every pass thrown his way in the past two practices, especially in the middle of the field.
The Falcons still have a long way to go in training camp and will continue to battle through the ups and downs just like every other NFL team does. So far, so good.
