Hooper had some things moving in the right direction last year - more games, more starts, more snaps and more targets. His YPC dropped almost four yards, despite a glorious 88-yard catch-and-run touchdown against the Bears in Week 1. Hooper only scored twice the rest of the season and didn't have another reception longer than 24 yards or a game with more than 50 yards. After finishing with nine straight outings (including playoffs) catching three or fewer passes for no more than 38 yards, Hooper's case for a Year 3 breakout took a hit when the Falcons drafted WR Calvin Ridley in Round 1. The Falcons also didn't consider Hooper much in the playoffs, giving him just six targets in two games (4-18-0). That sounds like someone who should be forced to play his way onto our rosters in September, not someone we should proactively draft in August.

Hooper was mentioned by head coach Dan Quinn at this week's NFL owners meetings as one player who the Falcons expect elevated performance from in 2018, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. "I'm really looking forward to where Austin Hooper is going to go," Quinn said this week at the NFL owners meeting, "In the run game, he can get better... (but) he's a really committed football guy. I think there will be a big jump."

  2. Austin Hooper 2017 Preseason Outlook
    The Falcons brought Hooper along at a gradual pace during his rookie year as he only had three games with more than three targets. But there were occasional highlights -- an 84-yard spike at Oakland, a snappy touchdown at Tampa Bay on national television and a score in the Super Bowl. With Jacob Tamme not expected back, Hooper likely will enter Week 1 as the starter, or at least as the top pass catcher at TE. Stanford has produced a number of NFL starting tight ends in recent years, with Hooper another one to feel good about. He checks the pedigree box -- a third-round pick in 2016 -- and he doesn't turn 23 until late October. Atlanta's offense is built around matchups and spreading the ball around, but Hooper has plenty of room for growth in his second season. He belongs on everyone's potential-breakout list.
  3. Austin Hooper 2016 Preseason Outlook
    Hooper was selected by the Falcons in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft, and the team hopes he can help bolster a position that's been a point of weakness since Tony Gonzalez retired. He comes into a clustered-yet-unimpressive situation alongside Jacob Tamme and Levine Toilolo, who combined for just 66 receptions, 701 yards and one touchdown in 2015. The Falcons clearly have plans for Hooper if they were willing to take a chance on him in the third round, but it seems like they'll roll with Tamme at the beginning of the season. Toilolo is more of a blocking tight end, so Hooper could see some work in clear passing situations should they opt for some double-tight end sets.
