Falcons players, coaches discuss work-in-progress edge rusher development 

After the very first day of training camp on Wednesday, Arnold Ebiketie was candid about where he feels like he was coming into his very first professional practice.

“I think the more I go, the better I will become over time,” the Falcons second round draft pick said.

After Friday’s practice, outside linebackers coach Ted Monachino doubled down on this note saying the young edge rushers – Ebiketie and DeAngelo Malone, particularly – are coming along, but they’ve got a long road ahead of them.

If you take a look at the Falcons outside linebacker position you’ll notice fairly quickly how young it is. Ebiketie and Malone are three practices into their rookie year. Ade Ogundeji is only in his second season after slotting in rotationally last year. If you’re looking for a veteran, that’s Lorenzo Carter. Even Quinton Bell is a second year player.
