Falcons Sign 16 Undrafted Free Agents

The Falcons agreed to sign with 16 undrafted college free agents on Monday. Here’s the full breakdown of Atlanta’s eight new offensive players, seven new defenders, and one long snapper:

Stanley, a wide receiver at Georgia, will aim to show his stuff as a cornerback for the Falcons. The 6’2″, 207-pounder didn’t see a ton of playing time with the Bulldogs, but the Falcons are curious to find out whether his athletic skills can translate to success on the other side of the ball.

    Man I do not remember ever seeing Jayson Stanley at UGA. It’s like a 12 or 14 year run the Falcons have never drafted a dawg, makes no sense at all…

    Falcons have drafted 9 from Georgia and 6 from Georgia Tech over the years. Most recently selected was Akeem Dent (Georgia) in third round of 2011.
    During the early years of the NFL it was important to have homegrown talent on the roster to attract attendance but games are watched globally now so there isn’t the same need.

    Not many guys on this list that have a shot. There was some pretty decent talent still out there when the draft ended the falcons could have gotten, but didn’t. A little frustrating.

    Start drafting and signing more uga boys, heck even local kids like the previous comments suggest. Some pretty good players come out of it. Heck, the kicker from ga southern that played for the legends might be a solid addition as a backup or replacement for Bryant….
