Every year after the draft concludes, the undrafted free agent frenzy begins. Several notable names go undrafted every year due to several issues like injuries, character concerns, and questionable work ethic. The other UDFAs are guys who flew under the radar or didn't put up the numbers that would get them drafted. Every year an average of one UDFA beats out the odds and makes the team. Last year for Atlanta it was Darrin Walls, who became the #6 CB and recorded an INT in limited action. This year Atlanta has a very promising group of UDFAs and more then one could make the roster in my opinion. So let's take a look at some of them.
Can Cody Pearcy Make the Squad?
The first guy I want to talk about is former Huttingdon WR Cody Pearcy. Pearcy is mostly known for his insane pro day at which he posted mind boggling numbers in the 40 (4.31), Vert (44"), 3 Cone (6.67), and Short Shuttle (3.76). Of course at 161 lbs, Pearcy will need to add quite a bit of bulk to hold ...

The Atlanta Falcons released veteran fullback Ovie Mughelli, paving the way for rookie Bradie Ewing to take over the starting role.
Mughelli was coming off a season-ending MCL tear and was due to earn $3M in 2012, so while it’s tough to imagine Ewing immediately filling Mughelli’s shoes, it’s a move that made financial sense.
Ewing was the top-rated fullback on my board with...
The Atlanta Falcons have released former Pro Bowl fullback Ovie Mughelli in a move that clears salary cap space and creates an opening for fifth-round draft pick Bradie Ewing.
The 31-year-old Mughelli was due to earn a base salary of $3 million in 2012 before Tuesday's move. His 2011 season ended when he hurt his right knee in Week 7 at Detroit and was placed on injured reserve...
The Atlanta Falcons had very little to work with as a result of their trade for Julio Jones in last year’s draft. As a result, I’ll evaluate this class based solely on the picks with which they had to work. That said, the Falcons did absolutely nothing to help them in 2012 and added very little by the way of developmental prospects.
Peter Konz was the best center in this year’s...
Former Atlanta Falcons running back Jamal Anderson is facing a tax lien of more than $1 million from the Internal Revenue Service, TMZ reported. Anderson didn't pay his federal income taxes in 2007 and 2008, according to documents obtained by TMZ, and he reportedly owes $1,105,263.51 from those two years. The IRS has placed a lien on his property, according to the report...
Atlanta Falcons defensive end Ray Edwards treated one lucky fan to a dream vacation in Las Vegas.
The weekend trip was the prize in Edwards' "Dare To Be Different" contest and also saw the lucky winner scoop ringside seats during Saturday's Floyd Mayweather fight against Miguel Cotto, TMZ reported.
A spokesman for Edwards said he paid for two first-class tickets...
Fullback Ovie Mughelli was released by the Falcons. The 2010 Pro Bowl lead blocker for Michael Turner suffered a season-ending knee injury in October last season. Atlanta signed Mike Cox after Turner's injury and drafted Bradie Ewing in the fifth round out of Wisconsin.
Hot News for FB Ovie Mughelli
According to Zach Klein of WSB, a reasonably well plugged in reporter, the Atlanta Falcons have cut long term fullback Ovie Mughelli. Many expected Atlanta to pull in a fullback this offseason to replace Ovie, who tore an MCL last year and has about a $3 million salary this season.
The Falcons picked up Bradie Ewing, a Wisconsin Badgers fullback, in the 5th round of the draft...
