Falcons have top-30 draft visit scheduled with Illinois tight end

The Atlanta Falcons have a top-30 draft visit scheduled with Illinois tight end Tip Reiman, according to the Draft Network’s Justin Melo. Reiman finished the 2023 season with 19 catches, 203 receiving yards and three touchdowns.

While his college production was relatively modest, Reiman’s athleticism was on full display at the 2024 NFL Scouting Combine. The former Illinois tight end earned an elite relative athletic score (RAS) of 9.92:

Reiman is currently ranked as the 187th prospect on Pro Football Focus’ big board for the 2024 NFL draft. He lined up in the slot about one-third of the time in college.

Even after signing free agent Charlie Woerner to a three-year deal, the Falcons need some additional depth at tight end. The team released veteran Jonnu Smith ahead of free agency and could use a quality third option behind Kyle Pitts and Charlie Woerner.

In our latest mock draft of Round 1, Atlanta trades down before upgrading their defense.
