1. EDGE Lorenzo Carter could lose his starting job to rookie Bralen Trice

The Falcons have huge hopes for rookie third-round pick Bralen Trice. They waited until the third round to take their most pressing need and they were ecstatic that they could land a player of Trice's caliber on day two.

Lorenzo Carter is a fine player who went into the draft slated as a starter. However, the rookie out of Washington immediately becomes a strong bet to demote him on the depth chart.

Trice isn't going to be your normal rookie. He comes out of college with a lot of experience and production. His excellent technique will help him crack the starting lineup at a position that has always been difficult for rookies.
