Scouting Report: Levine Toilolo

Let’s look at what I thought was an underrated tight end prospect in this year’s class in Levine Toilolo. Height: 6-8 3/8 Weight: 259 School: Stanford Class: Junior Speed: 4.86 (Combine) Toilolo continues the trend that the Falcons apparently adopted in 2013 by selecting a player with NFL bloodlines. Three of his uncles: Dan Saleaumua (1987-98), Edwin Mulitalo (1999-2008), and Joe Salave’a (1998-2006) all played in...

Scouting Report: Malliciah Goodman

Here’s my take on defensive end Malliciah Goodman, the first of a pair of fourth round picks by the Falcons in 2013. Height: 6-3 5/8 Weight: 273 School: Clemson Class: Senior Speed: 4.87 (Combine) Goodman was a highly recruited prospect at Clemson, and finished his career strong with a 3-sack effort against LSU in the Chick-fil-A Bowl. In that game, he was working against a true freshman who began the season as a backup and...

Scouting Report: Desmond Trufant

Most years I will break down anywhere between three and six games during the course of the year for scouting draft prospects. This year, I did not do that much. In recent weeks I did go back and watch a pair of games that Trufant played this past season, and also did scout him in three games as a junior. But here’s my take on Trufant as a player: Height: 5-11 5/8 Weight: 190 School: Washington Class: Senior Speed: 4.38 (Combine)...

Scouting Report: Asante Samuel

Last week, I started things with scouting Sean Weatherspoon. Now it’s time to look at the Falcons only major pre-draft off-season addition still with the team: Asante Samuel, and what skills he brings to the table in 2012. Pros: Samuel is an instinctual cover corner with good ball skills, awareness, and excellent anticipation. Does a good job challenging throws when he’s in position, and makes quarterbacks have to work to...
