Connecticut's Yawin Smallwood would be a great fit for the Atlanta Falcons need for depth at linebacker. He's someone who can play inside in either scheme and would be the ideal fit for the Falcons at strong-inside linebacker and middle linebacker.
The Falcons have met with the Huskies' linebacker, according to Fox's Ross Jones. Atlanta doesn't tend to meet with players unless there are questions about scheme fit or off-the-field concerns or if the front office is legitimately interested in the player's talents.
