Dan Quinn made the rounds yesterday talking with various outlets, including our own Dukes and Bell. One of the things to come from those conversations was that Foye Oluokun would be asked to step into a starting role alongside Deion Jones.

John Fricke and Hugh Douglas react to those comments about Oluokun's readiness and what that may mean for the Falcons draft plans.

"Linebacker is not really on their list of to-do's when it comes to the NFL Draft and they're comfortable with Oluokun alongside Deion," says John Fricke.

"The one thing Coach Quinn has always been a proponent of is you have to be versatile and you have to be able to cover," explains Hugh Douglas. "The best thing you can do defensively is be able to play multiple defenses with the same personnel"
