Tevin Coleman and Devonta Freeman will compete for most of the playing time, but Smith's blazing speed and skill as a perimeter runner makes him a viable threat for Kyle Shanahan's outside zone scheme. Injuries and running backs go hand-in-hand, which makes Smith a player to monitor as a free agent pickup or late-round pick.

Summary

Antone Smith is a lightly-utilized backup who had seen a total of six rushes during his four-year career in Atlanta through 2013. Last year, in his fifth season, Smith flashed big-play ability while scoring five TDs over 10 games (23/144/2 rushing with 15 targets for 13/222/3 receiving) - a broken leg cut short his 2014 season, though. He was re-signed by the team on March 10, 2015 and will continue to be a complimentary play maker in the Falcon's 2015 running back stable. (May 14)

Falcons | Antone Smith progresses to running (Thu May 21, 08:33 AM) - Atlanta Falcons RB Antone Smith (leg) has began running during his rehabilitation from a fractured right leg he suffered Nov. 16, 2014. Smith said he is almost running full force. It is unlikely he will be cleared for the beginning of organized team activities Tuesday, May 26, though.

Our View: Smith is more notable for his five touchdowns in ten games last season before the injury. He showed some big-play, home-run ability, but will fight with Tevin Coleman and Devonta Freeman for playing time. Still, his speed and ability to get outside fits well with offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's scheme. He's worth watching as a late-round flier or free agency acquisition.
