Falcons add depth with Middleton

The Falcons added another cornerback in the fifth round (138th overall) by taking Furman cornerback William Middleton.

Middleton was a stud at Furman, earning Team MVP honors with 95 tackles, 5 sacks, and 4 interceptions as a senior. The 5’10” 193-pound corner is an Atlanta native that has the size and potential to possibly play safety as well.

The Falcons already added another cornerback in the third round, and have added another defensive back that can potentially help out right away on special teams.
