The Falcons are back to practice today, and Kevin Knight will be providing us updates from Flowery Branch. While we wait for things to kick off in earnest there, let’s talk about who has been impressing observers in the early going.
As always, there’s a few things you should keep in mind before we start lauding these players:
- These have been pad-less practices without contact, so some players are going to stand out now owing to their speed or talent who may well struggle a bit in padded practices and live games. You should not lose hope if (or more likely when) that happens, as players worth their salt will show progress as August grinds on and they have to face more contact and an entirely different team.
