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..... UDFA #1: His hometown is San Antonio, Texas but he played his college ball in what is considered the Midwest. His father played at Texas State and his cousin played at Texas (and later for the Cowboys). In 2012 he was named to first team honors for his conference. As a senior, his team played in a BCS game for the first time in the school's history but they came up short. Also as a senior, this player caught passes from someone who finished seventh in the 2012 Heisman voting and received three first place votes for the Heisman. In his career, this player caught 179 passes (75 as a senior) for 2549 yards and 24 TDs. Who is he?   UDFA #2:  This player is from St Louis, Missouri. In high school, according to Scout.com, this player had scholarship offers (but did not accept) from Alabama, Illinois, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri and Oklahoma. As a senior in high school he was a member of the Rivals.com top 250. In college this player majored in Sociology. In 2010, this players team went to a BCS Bowl although they came up short losing to a team that would later vacate their wins for that season. His best game in college was arguably against the Troy Trojans in 2011 when he ran for 109 yards and 2 TDs and caught three passes with one TD. As a senior, this player played in only five games carrying the ball just 12 times for a total of 59 yards and 1 TD. Who is he?   Who are they?
