FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - The 20 undrafted college free agents who have signed with the Atlanta Falcons have good reason to believe they'll have a chance to play or even start.
One year ago, college free agents made 31 starts for Atlanta. The 2013 group included the team's leading tackler, linebacker Paul Worrilow, who was undrafted from Delaware, and linebacker Joplo Bartu of Texas State, who made 13 starts and was third in tackles. Offensive tackle Ryan Schraeder of Valdosta State started four games.
The Falcons announced Monday they have signed five wide receivers, including Boise State's Geraldo Boldewijn. They signed Syracuse running back Jerome Smith, Cornell quarterback Jeff Mathews and two Wisconsin tight ends - Jacob Pedersen and Brian Wozniak.
The Falcons will have rookie minicamp Friday through Sunday.
