Falcons Select Tight End Levine Toilolo at Pick 133

How do the Falcons manage selecting players at this pace? Just a few minutes after taking a new defensive end, Dimitroff picked up gigantic tight end Levine Toilolo out of Stanford.  Outside of Keith Zinger in the 7th round back in 2008, Dimitroff has never drafted a tight end.  I just checked and Toilolo is the tallest tight end in the draft at just over 6'8" while still just 260lbs.

Levine obviously excels at snatching those high balls.

Falcons finally get a developmental tight end who sat behind Zach Ertz last year but still managed almost 400 yards and 4 touchdowns. Russ Lande loved Toilolo's blocking and thought some teams may consider him as a tackle. He is definitely a project and raw as a blocker and pass catcher, he remains a very athletic tight end with great size.
