Nothing but positive things can be said when it comes to full back Patrick DiMarco. DiMarco has made block after block to help the Falcons’ run game and has turned a lot of heads. DiMarco was expected to be beat out by Collin Mooney, but an injury to Mooney allowed DiMarco to keep his job and boy has it worked out.

DiMarco has yet to have a single rush attempt, but that’s not what he is here to do. He is here to make key blocks for the likes of Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman and that is exactly what he has done. Hats off to you DiMarco. Keep up the good work.
