Falcons sign first-round pick Chris Lindstrom

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- The Atlanta Falcons announced Thursday that they have signed rookie Chris Lindstrom; he is the seventh and final draft pick to sign a deal with the team.


Lindstrom, who was selected with the 14th-overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft, was viewed as the top offensive guard in this year's draft class. A versatile and athletic interior offensive lineman, Lindstrom should fit nicely with the Falcons' zone-based run scheme. After selecting Lindstrom with their first pick, the Falcons traded back into the first round to draft offensive tackle Kaleb McGary, signaling a significant investment in their offensive line.

Lindstrom is the final draft pick to agree to terms with the Falcons, meaning the team now has all of its rookie picks in the fold heading into the summer.
