The Falcons started their three day mini-camp today with two practices. There was a walk-thru this morning that was closed to the public and a practice this afternoon that was open to the public. We were not able to attend but here are some tweets around the Falcons twitter-sphere...

 

First pass of Minicamp was a screen. Second was a 15-yard dart to Julio. #atlminicamp

#Falcons WR Julio Jones made a nice catch over the middle with Asante Samuel in coverage.

#Falcons DE John Abraham and undrafted rookie TE Adam Nissley got into a little minicamp scuffle.

1-on-1 drills just ended. Julio brutalized Chris Owens once and Roddy had his way with Grimes a few times too #Falcons

- Knox Bardeen (@knoxbardeen)

One thing I personally notice from this Nolan D unlike other years is how much they're talking before the snap. #atlminiamp

- Daniel Cox (@FalconsDCox)

HD just made what will probably be catch o' day. In double coverage he jumped high to catch a pass. Probably around 40 yards. #atlminicamp

- Daniel Cox (@FalconsDCox)

Stephen Nicholas has been wearing a giant bucket hat this entire offseason. Just got a look at him. He's got a massive beard. #atlminicamp

- Daniel Cox (@FalconsDCox)

Asante Samuel wants an interception during team period bad. Just had one go high off his fingers. This dude is fun to watch. #atlminicamp

- Jay Adams (@FalconsJAdams)
