No he can't. Why is it so many here think "big back = fullback"?

He got blown onto his *** by backups trying to play fullback.

That was my initial though when he was drafted. That he would probably be asked to gain a few and play some linebacker. That was a dead guess right there

I'm glad they kept him at RB, 230lbs is plenty of size and he can wear down defenses as the game goes on. He's the type of back to go for 3.6ypc during the 1st-3rd but by the end of the 4th he's at 4.8ypc.

He can. He has experience there and has done it for a few years. Weird we kept Ortiz. 

Yeah it is. Must be more to it

I’ll take it

Naah, can take hours for transactions to  get announced.

They played well enough for lower level teams to take a shot at them -- pretty much any of the teams in Florida.

He looked good in the senior bowl practices. 

Sure did! Hes got some length and some speed. Could be worth developing.

O.Z. already earned his spot and made the team. He beat Blake fair and square. Get outta here with this. 

That’s not really my point.

I was thinking about by next year.

We had Marvin Hall get on the roster 2 straight years and then he was let go.

Just covered all 3 possible ways; barring injury, he would conceivably want to stick around and try to make 53 by next year.

Hopefully, that’s Zaccheaus and Blake next year together! :tiphat:

I believe Dan Quinn and Thomas Dimitroff assessment on Ollison than anyone on this board.

I dont believe Ortiz is going to finish season with falcons.

I was really rooting for the guy in preseason, he was very disappointing in my eyes. He might just need seasoning, but it won’t be with us right now.

He pretty much sucked.

Well they kept Ortiz so obviously they didnt see anything from Olly to suggest he would be a good FB.

Dont be surprised if it gets changed in forseable future.

Why not on Ortiz?

Nice to see us bring back Larkin, JTM, and Zimmer. All were solid during the preseason. I feel like Harlow could've been upgraded but it is what it is

Here is the current list of practice squad players for Atlanta:

  • WR Christian Blake
  • S Chris Cooper
  • QB Danny Etling
  • OL Sean Harlow
  • DE Austin Larkin
  • DT Jacob Tuioti-Mariner
  • DT Justin Zimmer

Good start.  Definitely need one more DE since so few DL are under contract next year.

If we could develop a couple it would be radically helpful.
