Atlanta has a need for some solid linebacker depth in this year's draft. Jordan Tripp of Montana would be an ideal fit for the Falcons' needs, as he can play multiple spots in both the 3-4 and 4-3 defenses. Ideally, he would play on the inside of a 3-4 or at weak-side linebacker in the 4-3.
According to Gil Brandt of NFL.com, the Falcons brought Jordan Tripp in for a visit during the week of April 7. This makes a ton of sense, as Tripp could be an asset for defensive coordinator Mike Nolan in his hybrid defensive scheme.
