Falcons finally get a developmental tight end who sat behind Zach Ertz last year but still managed almost 400 yards and 4 touchdowns last year. Russ Lande loved Toilolo's blocking and thought some teams may consider him as a tackle. He is definitely a project and raw as a blocker and pass catcher, he remains a very athletic tight end with great size.
