Falcons Select Takkarist McKinley

The Atlanta Falcons have just selected Takkarist McKinley with the 26th overall selection of the 2017 NFL Draft. Takkarist McKinley, outside linebacker from UCLA, is one of the best pass-rushers in the draft and is going to a team that needs help in that area. Despite Vic Beasley Jr’s incredible year pass rushing last year, Atlanta was still one of the worst teams at puting pressure and bringing down the opposing quarterback. This was also a key reason the Falcon’s lost the super bowl down the stretch. In order to acquire McKinley, the Falcon’s gave Seattle their 3rd and 7th round picks along with the 31st overall pick.
