07:37 AM ET 04.03 | Atlanta recently signed Osi Umenyiora, but it may still draft at the position later this month. On Tuesday, the Falcons had one of the top defensive end prospects, Florida State's Tank Carradine, in to visit the facilities and meet the coaches. "I've always liked the Falcons since I was a little boy and they had Michael Vick," Carradine said Monday via phone before his visit. ... Carradine, is a pass-rushing defensive end who's battling back from ACL knee surgery. He moved to Houston after the season in order to train with Russ Paine of IronMan Sports Medical Institute. Paine supervised Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson's dramatic recovery from a similar injury last season.

The Falcons are thinking defense...this is good for Falcon fans. Although I live in the Atlanta area, I am not a fan per se, but I like to see them doing well.

Yeah! But I have to wonder if that's his real first name and if so I'd have liked to have been a fly on the wall when his parents had that naming discussion.

I bet he's glad they didn't call him "Armored Personnel Carrier." Or "Hummer."

When your given name is Cornellius, you let them call you anything else.

If that ACL surgery does not work out they will be calling him Septic Tank.

It's not really about the kid. The mom was totally tanked when she got pregnant, that's all.
