FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- The Falcons had a slew of one-on-one battles between the offensive line and the defensive line during a pretty competitive period on the fifth day of AT&T Atlanta Falcons Training Camp.
The highlights of the session were two matchups between star defensive tackle Grady Jarrett and first-round pick Chris Lindstrom. Lindstrom, who has been working with the starters throughout camp, was beaten pretty soundly by Jarrett the first time around but recovered nicely with a good showing on the second attempt.
Atlanta's newest defensive lineman, Allen Bailey also went up against Lindstrom on Saturday. The 6-foot-3, 288-pound defensive end showed just how strong he can be while rushing the passer, giving Lindstrom all he could handle.
These one-on-one sessions between the offensive and defensive lines are one of the easiest ways to evaluate the trenches. While one rep is certainly not indicative of a player's talent, they are certainly important and a lot of fun to watch. So, here are a few more of the battles between the offensive and defensive linemen.
Friday marked the first day off for players during 2019 AT&T Atlanta Falcons Training Camp. Let's take a look back at the best images from the first week of camp before getting back to work Saturday.
