Found April 27, 2013 on Grits Blitz:
How do the Falcons manage selecting players at this pace?  Just a few minutes after taking a new defensive end, Dimitroff picked up gigantic tight end Levine Toilolo out of Stanford.  Outside of Keith Zinger in the 7th round back in 2008, Dimitroff has never drafted a tight end.  I just checked and Toilolo is the tallest tight end in the draft at just over 6'8" while still just 260lbs. 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.
