Matt Ryan’s Cousin in Atlanta for a Pre-Draft Visit with the Falcons

The Falcons had a few problems last year on the offensive line and might be looking to add some depth in the draft in the form of a swing tackle or guard.


Notre Dame tackle Mike McGlinchey, as reported by the AJC , was invited to Atlanta for a pre-draft visit. McGlinchey does have a connection with Atlanta as he is Matt Ryan’s first cousin which could bode well for chemistry. Unfortunately McGlinchey is currently projected to go in the first round so if the Falcons were to pick him, they would have to ignore their top 3 needs.

With Jake Matthews becoming a free agent next year, is this a pick you would like to see the Falcons pull off? Let us know in the comments or on twitter @BirdsInTheBenz!
