The Atlanta Falcons are looking for the right mix of defensive playmakers still, but it seems that one rookie has carved out a nice role for himself.

According to D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, head coach Dan Quinn has stated that defensive tackle Grady Jarrett will see more playing time.

While Jarrett hasn’t seen a ton of playing time to this point, he seems to be making the most of the time he has been on the field. At the very least, he’s impressing coaches enough to work his way into a consistent rotation at defensive tackle.
