With Training Camp approaching, Falcons Rookies look to make immediate impact
With the Falcons looking to drastically improve their defense from last season, the team used their first two picks to draft DE Takkarist McKinley and LB Duke Riley. McKinkley, a product of UCLA, brings an element of passion that the “Brotherhood” feeds on. Whereas Riley joins his former teammate from LSU, Deion Jones, and is thought to play along side him week in and week out.
McKinley known for his emotion and trash talk didn’t disappoint on twitter when he tweeted a video of himself intercepting Russell Wilson at the Kid’s Choice Awards and projected many more to come.
Riley, more of the quiet type, silently has been working hard this offseason with Deion Jones doing sand drills in order to speed up his footwork along with spending time with his daughter who he says is all the motivation he needs.
Both gentlemen look excited and ready to get to work at Training Camp that starts July 26th in Flowery Branch. Training Camp is open to the public on certain days where fans can go and get a look a first look at the team and how they will stack up this upcoming season.
