The Falcons must really just love a feel-good story.
Last year, it was Takk McKinley, who was the Falcon’s first-round draft pick. This year, it came in the third round with Deadrin Senat.
Just got done a conference call with Deadrin Senat and wow is he excited to be a Falcon. Deadrin shared how special this night is & how much he wished his parents were here to enjoy it with him. His mom passed when he was 13 and his dad passed when he was 20.

I did not realize, when we picked him, what he must have gone through, both mentally and emotionally, growing up. He clearly has faced plenty of adversity. This video (tweeted from @AtlantaFalcons) shows his passion and love for his family. Though his parents may be gone, he clearly loves those still with him:
I would love to see the full video there, but how heart-warming is that? You can tell he has worked hard to get to this point and will continue working hard to overcome adversity.
