Falcons | Atlanta takes TE in Austin Hooper

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 19:33:05 -0700

The Atlanta Falcons selected Stanford TE Austin Hooper with the No. 81 overall pick in the third round of the 2016 NFL draft on Friday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Hooper isn't flashy, but he's versatile and can be flexed out as a receiver if the Falcons want to go that route. Jacob Tamme and Levine Toilolo remain in Atlanta, but Hooper hasn't the most pass-catching upside of the group. However, it'll likely take some time for him to develop at the next level, so don't expect to see Hooper have any fantasy value in traditional leagues in Year 1.
