FLOWERY BRANCH — The Falcons are already preparing for the end of the draft.
They have posted a sleek video devoted to talking about the virtues of the coaching staff. The video was sent to agents or prospective undrafted players from the team’s scouting department at 11:19 a.m. Saturday.
Last season, three undrafted players made the team in safety Robensen Therezie, running back Terron Ward and defensive tackle Joey Mbu.
At the end of the draft today, the Falcons will start trying to fill out their undrafted rookie class.
The undrafted rookie reservation is $92,021 per team this year, which is a 5.82 percent increase. It was $86957 per team last year.
