Falcons star Julio Jones was praising fellow wide receiver Aldrick Robinson even before Robinson went out and starred for the Falcons in the exhibition opener against Washington on Thursday.
That performance by Robinson, who rates as no better than the No. 4 receiver, is an indication of the potential depth the Falcons have at wide receiver.
“He had a great game for us,” Jones said. “But there is more to come from Al. Also, a lot of the young guys. J.D. (McKissic), great guy, you will see a lot of him. Of course, Mohamed Sanu (and) myself. Just a lot of guys. We are out here, we are working and doing a good job.”
The story went on to say with Jones, Sanu and Justin Hardy set as the top three wide receivers, Robinson is in competition with four others for what likely are two more spots: McKissic, Nick Williams, Eric Weems, and Devin Fuller.
