Insider Talk – NFL.com:

“Really, really talented player. You won’t always see it on every play so that is going to be a coach’s job to get that out of him. Rushers with his size and athleticism are hard to find and they usually go very early in the draft.” — AFC executive

Staff Reaction:

It seems like we do this every year with the Falcons. Haven’t they needed a pass rusher for like the last 20 years? Taco Charlton is a good one at least, and hopefully (for Atlanta’s sake) he can make a difference. ~ Ben Almquist
