Round 1.26: Rashaan Evans, LB, Alabama (NFL comparison Lawrence Timmons)
Round 2.58: Mike Gesicki, TE, Penn State (NFL comparison Jimmy Graham)
Round 3.90: Tim Settle, DT, Virginia Tech (NFL comparison Vince Wilfork)
Round 4.126: Antonio Callaway, WR, Florida (My comparison is Tyreek Hill)
Pairing Rashaad Evans with current Falcons LB star Deion Jones would instantly upgrade their LB corp so that they are not waiting for the emergence of their former rookie (now 2nd year player) Duke Riley who had been more miss than hit.
Falcons had not had a viable threat at TE since Tony Gonzalez left, Austin Hooper does not scare anyone at all, and with Julio and Sanu on the outside and having lost Taylor Gabriel in the slot, they needed someone with good hands for the seam routes. Mike Gesicki is that guy, has all the traits like a Jimmy Graham and if he improves his blocking, could end up like Gronk, he has a great ceiling.
With the departure of Dontari Poe and Adrian Clayborn, they needed someone in the middle light enough on his feet but also make plays vs the run and pass. Tim Settle seems like a natural fit for that.
Last but not least, had to wait till day 3 of the draft to take a chance on a guy with questionable character. With enough veterans on the Falcons squad, feel like Antonio Callaway will be in check and this was a chance taken with huge upside, much bigger upside than what Taylor Gabriel gave them, IMO.
I felt that lots of talent was indeed added to the Falcons squad and a lot of their issues last year were offensive woes.
