In looking for an underrated speedster at linebacker with potential to be a coverage specialist, the Falcons should have Kevin Pierre-Louis at the top of their list of guys to check out. He's a mid-round talent on the field with first-round measurables.
The Boston College linebacker showed speed that is easily relevant when you watch him on film. However, he also showed that he has good hip fluidity and solid strength on top of it. The Falcons could easily use a solid linebacker in the mid-rounds of the draft, and Pierre-Louis is a solid option.
At the combine, Pierre-Louis stood out from the masses of linebackers in every single drill that he did. The only physical limitation an NFL team could potentially see is that he's just 232 pounds. But Atlanta doesn't seem to have that issue, as Paul Worrilow and Joplo Bartu were in the 230- to 235-pound range in 2013.
