Performance of Falcons' rookies have team close to turning corner


The Atlanta Falcons' 2022 season is not off to the best start. They are 0-2, but both losses have come in one-possession games and some of the younger players on the team are providing reason for hope that things will improve during the course of the season.

92.9 The Game Falcons reporter Joe Patrick discusses the Atlanta draft class and the impact they have had thus far and will continue to have as the season wears on.

Without question the rookie having the biggest impact is receiver Drake London, and as the team's top pick, he should. But Arnold Ebiketie has already seen his fair-share of success. RB Tyler Allgeier was tied for the team lead in carries in the loss to the Rams, and LB Troy Andersen had a key punt block leading to a special teams TD.

This of course doesn't include rookie QB Desmond Ridder, who many fans expect to see before the end of the season.
