Ra'Shede Hageman is one of Atlanta's most powerful athletes and head coach Dan Quinn wants to continue to put the former Minnesota Gopher in positions to succeed.
The defensive lineman is entering his third season and coming off his most productive career thus far. In 2015, he started 12 games and posted 27 tackles, one pass defensed and registered one sack.
Most of Hageman's time has been spent primarily at defensive tackle, but according to ESPN's Vaughn McClure, he'll be featured at defensive end in the Falcons’ base defense. The versatile player could be very productive at the end of the defensive line for setting the edge against the run.
