    Round 2; Pick 37; DL Ra'Shede Hageman

    Falcons selected Minnesota DL Ra'Shede Hageman with the No. 37 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

    Hageman (6-foot-6, 310) was a first-team All-Big Ten selection as a senior, finishing his career with 24 tackles for loss including 13 in 2013, with two sacks, nine batted passes, and two blocked kicks. A converted tight end and freaky athlete for his size, Hageman ran 5.02 with a 35 1/2-inch vertical and 9-foot-6 broad jump at the Combine, to go with 32 bench reps. Hageman flashed dominant ability for the Gophers, but his college tape is maddeningly inconsistent. He'll be a 24-year-old rookie and profiles as a boom-or-bust prospect due to snap-to-snap effort concerns. The Falcons run multiple fronts, so Hageman could play some one technique or even kick out as a five technique. We suspect he'll play the "five" most, as Atlanta's free agency and draft moves suggest a full-time switch to 3-4.

    Falcons second-round pick Ra'Shede Hageman lined up at left defensive end at rookie minicamp.

    When the veterans report for OTAs, No. 37 pick Hageman figures to compete with Tyson Jackson and Jonathan Babineaux for the two starting end jobs. Paul Soliai will play nose tackle. Hageman should also figure quickly into DC Mike Nolan's nickel defense with an ability to push the pocket on passing downs.

    One of the biggest boom or bust picks in the draft. The stud potential is there......

    Falcons signed second-round DE Ra'Shede Hageman to a four-year contract.

    Hageman, the 37th overall pick, lined up at left end at rookie camp. In the Falcons' transition to a 3-4, we'd expect Hageman to compete with Tyson Jackson and Jonathan Babineaux for the two starting defensive end jobs. Hageman should at least have a role on passing downs right out of the chute.
