atljbo Posted September 22, 2010 Share Posted September 22, 2010 linkSean Weatherspoon (LB-Atl)The Falcons first-round pick out of Missouri has stepped in as the starting strong side linebacker in Atlanta and already has 17 tackles in his first two games. Weatherspoon also added a sack against the Cardinals and has made an immediate impact defensively for the Falcons.His size (6-1, 239) was the major knock on Weatherspoon out of college and had many, including Draft Insider, projecting him as a more productive weak side linebacker. But Weatherspoon has held his own in the early season, showing a nose for the football and sure tackling ability. If he can continue to improve his ability to play the inside run, his sideline-to-sideline speed and overall athleticism will be a nightmare for offensive coordinators around the league.
