The Atlanta Falcons running back depth is a big question mark heading into the 2019 season. Devonta Freeman is coming back from injury but remains the team's No. 1 back.

But with Tevin Coleman taking his talents to San Francisco, who will be that No. 2 back behind Freeman?

Head coach Dan Quinn told reporters after Sunday's scrimmage, he doesn't even know who that guy will be.

"Brian Hill is turning heads," Randy McMichael said noting his first preseason game performance.

"He's a much bigger guy that you might want to back up Devonta Freeman. I mean, right now, he's making his case to be the second or third guy right now."

Hill had 57 yards on 11 carries and a receiving touchdown against the Denver Broncos in the Hall of Fame game.
