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 part one and then click here and here to read about the first four UDFA's in this series.... UDFA #5 This UDFA has two brothers and two sisters and one of his brothers played football at Ball State. According to Scout.com, this player was a two-star prospect coming out of high school.  He red-shirted in 2008 and played sparingly until his senior season. Going into his senior season he had a total of 28 solo tackles. As a senior, he had 81 solo tackles and 145 total tackles which led his team in both metrics. As a senior he earned All-Conference honors on the field and a bachelor's degree in communications off the field. He went to the same school as Falcons QB Matt Ryan.    UDFA #6 This player is from Waller, Texas. Much like UDFA #5, Scout.com had this player rated as a two-star prospect coming out of high school and he also red-shirted during his freshman season. When he arrived on campus his college was a member of the FCS but upon leaving it had moved up to the FBS level of college football. As a senior, this player had 61 tackles, 34 assists and 5.5 sacks (which led his team). This player will wear #59 for the Falcons. This player went to the same school as former US President Lyndon Baines Johnson, country musician George Strait and actor Bill Paxton.     UDFA #5 is Nick Clancy, LB, Boston College   UDFA #6 is Joplo Bartu, LB, Texas State
