With the 16th overall pick in the 1st round of the 2011 NFL draft, the Atlanta Falcons select.............
LB - UCLA 6'4 255 lbs
The falcons love the versatility of Ayers. He's an outstanding blitzing\rushing LB that plays equally as well in space and in pass coverage. A smart and savvy defender with a nose for the ball. Has a knack for making big plays at key moments. Very athletic, great hands and has good size and speed. He can get stronger but should have no problem doing so with an NFL training program.
