Atlanta Falcon to Watch
Both Alex Marvez and Gil Brandt point to rookie OT Jake Matthews, and how he should very much live up to the expectations that come with being the sixth overall pick in this year’s draft:
He’s got everything that you need. He’s got height. He’s got long arms. He’s strong. He’s very, very bright, and he’s been around it. He’s grown up in it […] Anytime you see somebody that’s got great character and has the other things, the athletic ability, and everything that you need to go along with it, they’re safe bets.
