The Atlanta Falcons have a bunch of undrafted rookies that they have signed to their roster. The odds are slim that these players will make the team but who knows....one of them could be the next Jessie Tuggle (undrafted in 1987). With that in mind, this series will focus on the undrafted rookie players that the Falcons have in camp. We will go through them and give facts and information about them and then reveal their identities at the end of the article. See how many you can guess as you read along. If you missed parts one through three and then click here, here and here to read about the first six UDFA's in this series.... UDFA #7 This player is from Wilmington, Delaware.
