FLOWERY BRANCH – Here are six quick takes from the first day of Falcons rookie minicamp:

  1. Falcons first-round pick Jake Matthews won two battles with second-round pick Ra’Shede Hageman in one-on-one passing drills. Both players were impressive.
  2. Fourth-round pick Prince Shembo lined up at RDE in the nickel package. He looked good coming off the edge as a rusher.
  3. Former defensive tackle Adam Replogle has been moved over to the offensive line. He played some left guard.
  4. The defensive drilled in the 4-3, 3-4 and 5-2-5.
  5. Veteran cornerback Jordan Mabin, safety Sean Baker and Replogle, who were all on the practice squad last season, participated in the drills.
  6. Running back Braden Wilson (Kansas State, tryout), cornerback Devonta Glover-Wright (Campbell High, Utah State, undrafted rookie), and defensive lineman Byron Jerideau (South Carolina, tryout) were injured and watched most of the drills.

Please check back later. We’ll post a video, coach Mike Smith’s comments on the practice and a story on third-round pick Dezmen Southward.

Few thoughts from minicamp - 1) Jake Matthews is real fluid in his movement and footwork is better than it should be for first day #Falcons

2) Ra'Shede Hageman was dominant in one on one drills until he met his match in Jake Matthews. So big and tall. Overpowering. #Falcons

3) UDFA alert - keep an eye on center James Stone out of University of Tennessee. Held his own for most part in one on ones. #Falcons

Saweeet news for Matthews. Kid's gonna be special. Hageman needs to step up! I also love hearing Stones doing well.

I don't know if it's cynicism, but I hope Hagemann and Matthews looking good against each other in one-on-ones is different from our OL and DL looking good against each other in years past. I'm still anxious for the year to start. Just cautiously optimistic at this point...
