Defensive tackle breakdown for the Atlanta Falcons
As stated previously, the Falcons have added some quality depth at defensive tackle. While the names may not be very familiar or names may bring back some bad memories, there is still a lot of talent among this group. Once we move past the starters in Grady Jarrett and Jack Crawford, here are the guys that will make this roster as the depth pieces.
Tyeler Davison – The fifth year pro was taken just 17 picks after Grady Jarrett in the 2015 NFL draft. He has spent the first four year of his career in New Orleans and is looking for a fresh start after New Orleans decided to move on. In those first four years, Davison accumulated 48 starts, 95 tackles and three and a half sacks. Not eye popping numbers, but good enough to make this roster and provide quality depth.
Deadrin Senat – The 2018 third round selection by the Atlanta Falcons, is not going anywhere any time soon. While he was not on the field as much as fans wanted him to be, the undersized defensive tackle had some great moments as a rookie and all indications are that he is putting in the work to push for more playing time.
Ra’Shede Hageman – The former second round pick of the Atlanta Falcons is back for another opportunity. He will be suspended for the first couple of games of 2019 due to a DUI, however, Hageman seems to have grown up during his time away from the NFL and is said to be in the best shape of his life. While making the roster is not a guarantee, if all those things are true, he will be the final defensive tackle on this roster.
