Falcons close out draft with Walker
With the team’s last scheduled pick, the team took Georgia Tech defensive tackle Vance Walker with their seventh round pick (210th overall).
Walker was a productive player at Georgia Tech, known mostly for his pass rushing ability. As a junior, he had 8.5 sacks, 14 tackles for loss, and 3 forced fumbles. But his production slipped somewhat his senior year, falling to 3 sacks, 8.5 tackles for loss, and 1 forced fumble.
The Falcons already took a defensive tackle with their top pick, and add more depth with their last pick.
All in all the Falcons wrap up the draft with 8 draft picks, all but one of which were defensive players.
