Good size and speed. Don't really know anything about him but at least we are looking at any and every option available.

Apparently he has more career receptions than McNutt but less than Pilares. That's...cool?

every other team in the legue looks at this guy (and every other guy in our WR corps) and thinks, maybe i can squeeze them into our practice squad.

 

meanwhile, we have to ask if he is the next victor cruz and/or if he'd make a decent starter.

 

sad.

This guy's measurables are sick.

"First of all, Cone has quality speed. He ran about a 4.4 40 yard dash and never had his wheels questioned in college out of Georgia Tech's vaunted triple option, though he didn't catch a ton of passes. What makes him really intriguing as a slot receiver is that speed paired with sure hands further paired with excellent size (6'2", 215 pounds). Putting him inside on a nickel corner seems almost unfair.

Of course, you may be skeptical given his lack of production and the fact that he's one year off of being a UDFA, which I understand. But the Falcons are going to sink some serious money into the offensive and defensive lines this off-season and may need to replace a couple of pieces at linebacker, which isn't going to leave them a ton of money to go after a top-flight slot guy. With Julio, Roddy and Tony Gonzalez dominating the attention of other teams' defenses, putting a high-upside matchup problem at the slot just creates more headaches for those teams. I think all he really needs is a shot."
