Michigan S Jabrill Peppers' fit in an NFL defense seems to be more of a concern than his diluted urine sample, according to Tom Pelissero of USA TODAY Sports. Peppers is believed to be viewed as a fringe first-round pick, but the likelier outcome is that he will be taken in the second round.

Fantasy Tip: Gabriel emerged as a big-play threat last season by scoring seven times on only 39 touches, including six touchdown catches. He's likely to remain the third receiver in Atlanta again this year behind Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu, but his role shouldn't change much even with the departure of former offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. He's worth a look late in drafts.

Atlanta Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff believes there will be opportunities to move up from the 31st overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's D. Orlando Ledbetter, Atlanta has heavily scouted pass rushers. Missouri DE Charles Harris or Tennessee DE Derek Barnett are among those pass rushers who could be available in the 20s.

Atlanta Falcons RB Devonta Freeman is expected to receive a contract extension, but a deal is not anticipated in the near future. It is not likely that the two sides will commence negotiations before training camp and negotiations could spill into the regular season. Freeman has one year remaining on his rookie contract.
Fantasy Tip: Freeman undoubtedly deserves a big, new extension. He has averaged 1,587.5 total yards and 13.5 total touchdowns over the last two seasons and is comfortably in RB1 territory again this year. He has added value in PPR leagues.
