brown bomber Posted July 23, 2015 Share Posted July 23, 2015 If the Falcons get back into contention this season, it will largely be due to their rookie class playing at a high level. Vic Beasley gives the Falcons the explosive pass rusher they've desperately needed since John Abraham's departure; he could post double-digit sacks as the "Leo" in Dan Quinn's scheme. Jalen Collins is the long, rangy corner the Falcons need to contend with the big-bodied receivers (Vincent Jackson, Mike Evans, Kelvin Benjamin and Marques Colston) who rule the division. Tevin Coleman is pegged for a complementary role as a rookie, but new offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's scheme could showcase his skills as a dynamic, one-cut runner, leading to a number of home-run plays for the Falcons. Justin Hardy is a crafty route runner with strong hands and ball skills. He could develop into a nice sidekick to Julio Jones and Roddy White as a part-time slot receiver.
