Akeem Dent, the 6'1" senior from Georgia, weighs in at 242 pounds.

This guy had a very productive senior season and is known for playing hard all the time. Dent has a strong lower body and is stout, also possessing some leadership qualities. 

However, Dent has shown to have some issues eluding blockers and is mainly a run-stopper. His ability to recognize and diagnose plays is a problem, as he is easily fooled on misdirection plays. 

He's not really mentally tough. He does, however, have an upside of being a solid contributor for the Falcons.

Dent should also add some depth to a fast-improving defense and should be able to figure out the the Falcons' schemes with the help of the Falcons coaching staff.
