Atlanta Falcons Training Camp: Will Rookie Bradie Ewing Win Fullback Position?

Atlanta carried five backs last season if you include the fullback position. This season, the Falcons know what their rotation at running back is supposed to look like, with Michael Turner leading the way, and Jacquizz Rodgers and Jason Snelling in the mix as well.

But fullback will be an interesting position for the team to figure out during training camp, as Daniel Fox explains here:

The real decisions will come at fullback between Mike Cox and rookie Bradie Ewing. Cox filled in admirably last season when starter Ovie Mughelli went down. He's a predominately block-first option in the backfield. Ewing is a draft pick and was regarded as the best fullback in the draft. In addition to excellent blocking, Ewing, according to head coach Mike Smith, has better hands than many realize.
