Falcons Training Camp: Todd McClure Talks O-Line, Continuity

New, 1 comment

Veteran center Todd McClure has a front row seat for one of the biggest battles of Falcons Training Camp. No matter who wins the battle at right guard and and along the rest of the offensive line, McClure says that it is important that the line function as a unit.

"Guys that are competing for positions, they're helping each other out," he said. "If they see something they're doing wrong or if they see something that can help them, they're pointing it out. I think that's the way it's got to be. In the long run, there's going to be guys starting and there's going to be guys backing up, that's just the way it is. If you build any type of gap in there, your unit is not close and you're not good on Sundays if somebody's got to fill in."

The battle at right guard is expected to be one of the most contested of the fall with rookie Peter Konz expected to push Garrett Reynolds for the job. Left tackle is another position to keep an eye on as Sam Baker tries to work his way back from offseason back surgery to reclaim the left tackle job.
