    Round 7, Pick 253; LB Yawin Smallwood

    Falcons selected Connecticut LB Yawin Smallwood with the No. 253 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

    Smallwood (6-foot-2, 246) was the Huskies' starting middle linebacker for three seasons, tallying 27 career tackles for loss with 9.5 sacks and five forced fumbles. He was a first-team all-conference pick as both a sophomore and junior, before turning pro. Unfortunately, Smallwood trudged a 5.01 forty at the Combine, with a sub-par 9-foot broad jump. He's a better athlete than the measurables indicate, but was an inconsistent college tackler and is still learning to efficiently use his hands. Smallwood has longer-range starting upside, but figures to open his career on special teams.

    Falcons signed seventh-round ILB Yawin Smallwood to a four-year contract.

    Smallwood is a big, thumping inside linebacker whose selection further confirms the Falcons are trying to get more physical up front. We like Smallwood's chances of becoming a quality special teams player with Atlanta.
