The SportsXchange

Tight end Levine Toilolo, a fourth-round pick out of Stanford, signd with the Atlanta Falcons. Terms were not disclosed.

Toilolo, 6-feet-8 and 265 pounds, was used mainly as a blocker with the Cardinal but did catch 24 passes for 393 yards last season. He also has three uncles -- Dan Saleaumua, Edwin Mulitalo and Joe Salave'a -- who played in the NFL.

"At Stanford we ran a pretty pro-style, West Coast offense," Toilolo said after the draft. "So we utilized a lot of tight ends which was big coming out of high school for me. This year we ran a lot of two tight-end sets for me and Zach (Ertz). For me, I was more of an inline tight end with my hand down the majority of the time."

Toilolo caught 50 passes for 763 yards (15.3 yards per catch) with 10 touchdowns in 31 career games at Stanford.
