Ruke Orhorhoro, DT

Stat prediction: 4 sacks, 9 TFLs, 30 tackles

Ruke Orhorhoro's production should show up in his tackles for loss column. He will be asked to be a disruptor along the line of scrimmage.

The length of Ruke should allow him to bring some guys down in the backfield and put up a few sacks. Having seven tackles for loss as a rookie along a loaded defensive line would be a more than respectable number for the Clemson product.

Bralen Trice, EDGE

Stat prediction: 6 sacks, 14 QB hits, 25 tackles

Bralen Trice figures to be a big part of the Atlanta Falcons defense. They lack proven edge rushers so Trice needs to produce early and often.

Edge rusher is a position that has always been a tough one for rookies. Six sacks as a third-round rookie would be respectable—especially considering it would have tied for the team lead last season.
