The Falcons acquired three additional sixth round picks from the Jacksonville Jaguars by trading them their lone fifth round selection. With the first of these three acquired picks, they chose Auburn cornerback David Irons.
Irons (5’10” 190) has good speed (4.44) and was a productive two-year starter for the Auburn Tigers. He tallied 90 tackles, 23 pass breakups, and 2 interceptions over that span after transferring from Butler County JC.
He’ll have a chance to compete on special teams and bolster the nickel cornerback position on the Falcons.
