Falcons | RB Notes

Charles Odum reports for the Sporting News new Atlanta Falcons RBs coach Ollie Wilson was the position coach in Atlanta when they had three 1,000 rushers: Erric Pegram in 1993, Craig Heyward in his 1995 Pro Bowl season, and Jamal Anderson in 1996. RB Maurice Smith will have arthroscopic surgery to clean out his right knee. Smith played through the knee injury and other ailments last season, but while playing at less that full speed his production suffered. The Falcons have needs elsewhere but might use their first-round draft pick to draft a RB, even if both Anderson and Smith return in 2002.
