Most Significant Rookie Addition: TE

The Footballguys staff examines the significant rookie additions at tight end

Austin Hooper, Atlanta

Fahey: Kyle Shanahan knows how to get the most out of his tight ends. In the Atlanta Falcons play action heavy, misdirection approach, the tight end is often the receiver put in position to catch big plays while left uncovered. Shanahan hasn't had the combination of quarterback and tight end to get the most out of his approach but Hooper and Matt Ryan will give him a chance. Hooper gets the nod over Hunter Henry primarily because of his target share. He should feature more than the San Diego other receivers.
