With their top selection, the 19th overall pick, the Falcons took Missouri linebacker Sean Weatherspoon. Weatherspoon was highly rated as the top outside linebacker in this year’s draft. He will re-join former Tiger teammate William Moore on the Falcons defense. He was one of the few prospects that the Falcons reportedly worked out twice in the off-season, as the Falcons showed a lot of interest in him from the start.
