Falcons sign two draft picks

The team announced today that they signed two of their eight draft picks, cornerback William Middleton and defensive tackle Vance Walker.

Middleton was the teams’ fifth round pick out of Furman. Walker was the seventh round out of Georgia Tech. Both players are expected to fill depth roles with the team this year. Middleton and Walker are among the first rookies around the league to sign, as only a dozen or so have signed contracts thus far.

  1. Wow, I obviously haven’t been over here in way too long. Nice looking digs, gentlemen!

    I see good things ahead for both picks, though not necessarily this year. Middleton’s intriguing in a wide-open corner competition.

  2. Yeah, got the face lift earlier this week. Both are depth guys, but I think could be decent depth options, particularly Middleton if he can impact on special teams.

  3. @Pudge
    I think he’s got a real chance to do so. Sounds like a smart, tough kid.
