As the Atlanta Falcons get closer to the start of training camp we take a look at three players who could be the talk of the offseason preparation period

There’s an awful lot for Atlanta Falcons fans to be happy about heading into the 2017 NFL season. They have the reigning NFL MVP in quarterback Matt Ryan and the sack leader from last season as well in outside linebacker Vic Beasley, Jr. There’s also the leader in career reception yards per game in wide out Julio Jones and the best two-headed monster at running back in the game today with Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman.

In addition to those stars they added former Kansas City Chiefs star defensive tackle Dontari Poe in free agency and UCLA defensive end Takakrist McKinley in the draft. With all that, it’s hard not to feel optimistic about their chances this year.

The exciting new version of the Falcons can be seen on the field very soon now as training camp is just around the corner. Each year during these practices fans are stoked to see the big name players back in action, but there’s usually someone else who comes in and draws some attention for themselves. Here are three possible players that could garner much of the attention during the Atlanta Falcons training camp.
