Lamar Holmes is the Key to Falcons 2012 Draft

As the 2012 NFL Draft comes to a close and the grades are handed out to the teams, Atlanta's draft hinges on their most questioned pick, Lamar Holmes.  Holmes was universally seen as a reach by Atlanta. Many draft prognosticators had him as a sixth or seventh round prospect. Many fans questioned why Atlanta had passed over prospects like Alameda Ta'amu, Ladarius Green, and...

Falcons hire ex-Colts GM Chris Polian

It may not be overseeing the new-look, Luck-y Colts, or anything luxurious like that, but at least former Colts GM Chris Polian can say he's no longer unemployed. As first reported by ProFootballTalk.com, the Falcons hired Polian to work in their personnel department. An official announcement is expected Monday. Along with his dad, Bill Polian, formerly the Colts VP, he...

Akeem Dent, Lofa Tatupu will compete to start at middle linebacker

According to ProFootballWeekly.com, both Lofa Tatupu and Akeem Dent will battle to become the Atlanta Falcons starting middle linebacker since Curtis Lofton left in free agency. There’s some belief that if Tatupu stays healthy the job will be his to lose, but the Falcons coaching staff was impressed with the way Dent played last season, so he’ll get a shot to prove himself.

Falcons Select Bradie Ewing in the Fifth Round

Much like the pick before this one (Lamar Holmes), this pick came as a bit of a surprise.

Holmes had been designated by many draft sites as a late round project, and here the Falcons a team that desperately needed a left tackle had just taken him in the third round. It suggested they thought much more highly...

Falcons add twenty undrafted free agents

The Falcons added twenty undrafted free agents according to SB Nation Atlanta. In addition to the team’s six draft picks, that puts the Falcons roster one shy of the 90-man limit allowed in the off-season. It’s likely that the Falcons will release their official list tomorrow. The Falcons signed wide receivers LaMark Brown (Minnesota State-Mankato), wide receiver Mike Calvin...

Chris Polian to be added to Falcons front office

Brought to you by: FalcFans.com Pro Football Talk reported yesterday that former Indianapolis Colts Vice President and General Manager Chris Polian will be joining the Falcons front office in a currently unknown capacity. Polian was at one point a candidate for the Falcons own general manager position in 2008, but removed his name from consideration and a week later the Falcons...
