RandomFan Posted June 18, 2015 Share Posted June 18, 2015 There seems to be a sizeable contingent on this board that is still under the assumption that Jarrett is our Nose Tackle of the future, similar to Brandon Mebane of Seattle. Dan Quinn cleared it up once again how wrong that assumption is:Knox Bardeen @knoxbardeen Dan Quinn said #Falcons want to feature rookie Grady Jarrett in their nickel package & utilize his quickness & agility at DT. Jeanna @jeannathomas Says Grady Jarrett has unique quickness. Will feature in nickel package. Compared him to Babs. Andrew Hirsh @andrewhirsh DQ praised Grady Jarrett's athleticism and quickness. Said he'll be used in a similar role as Babineaux. Soliai is our NT/1-tech. As I've been saying for a while now, Jarrett's role is as a backup 3-tech and nickel DT pass rusher. Some other interesting recent tweets: Andrew Hirsh @andrewhirsh Former Seahawk O'Brien Schofield said Atlanta's defensive scheme is the same as Seattle's when Quinn was the DC. No major changes. vaughn mcclure @vxmcclure23 I would say with three days of minicamp with the first team Ricardo Allen goes into training camp as the starting FS unless Kemal changes it vaughn mcclure @vxmcclure23 Also from yesterday, noticed Jalen Collins got extensive time covering in the slot. Didn't do anything outstanding but seems eager. vaughn mcclure @vxmcclure23 Guys I thought looked impressive yesterday were, of course, Ricardo Allen, along with Ra'Shede Hageman, Vic Beasley and Chris Chester. Knox Bardeen @knoxbardeen Interesting note: Adrian Clayborn said he couldn't remember one time when Dan Quinn mentioned the #Seahawks. It's all about the #Falcons now Craig Sager II @CraigSagerJr William Moore says 100% of the film he has been watching has been Seattle Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
