Atlanta Falcons beat writer D. Orlando Ledbetter was at rookie minicamp and told John and Hugh on Monday morning why he felt a mid-round pick may actually be the key when grading the draft down the road.

"John Cominsky is the key to the draft class," said Ledbetter. "(He's) 6-foot-5, 286, really good speed and a guy that might be able to impact the defense over the long haul. They may have hit another home run."

D-Led continued to discuss what he saw from the rookie linemen Lindstrom and McGary, and then pivoted to what changes to expect with Dirk Koetter taking over the offensive coordinator role.

"Dirk ran a lot in Jacksonville and that's what they want to do here," said Ledbetter. "Inside and outside zone will be the keys to that. Screens and short passes to the backs will be a big part also. They've made it very clear they want to throw off of the run game."
