The fullback position may be looked upon as an unimportant position, but don’t tell that to Patrick DiMarco or Collin Mooney. DiMarco was the Falcons’ starter at fullback in 2014, but may not be for very much longer. Army vet Mooney has quickly stepped on the heals of DiMarco and has seen more and more first-team reps over the last few days.

Mooney may have the largets biceps on the team. The dude is a freak. That is the one guy on the team that I would hate to get into a fight with. Will that translate onto the football field? We will have to wait and see. But, at the moment, DiMarco needs to step it up in order to keep Mooney out of his spot.
