Falcons address void, add undrafted fullbacks McNitt, Marx

By The Associated Press

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) — After completing the draft without a fullback on their roster, the Atlanta Falcons have added two candidates who were undrafted college free agents.

Among the 27 undrafted players who have agreed to terms with Atlanta are fullbacks Luke McNitt of Nebraska and Daniel Marx of Stanford. Barring other roster moves, one of the two could open the season as the starter.

Fullback was a priority position in the Falcons' search for college free agents because 2017 starter Derrick Coleman was not re-signed.

The Falcons also agreed to terms with running backs Demario Richard of Arizona State, Emmanuel Smith of Vanderbilt and Malik Williams of Louisville and Virginia quarterback Kurt Benkert.

Two in-state players, Georgia kicker David Marvin and Georgia State defensive end Mackendy Cheridor, also agreed to terms.
