He did not miss any time as a rookie. The Falcons have deemed the procedure "minor." McKinley could be full-go for organized team activities in the spring. The No. 26 overall pick of last spring's draft, McKinley played 401 promising snaps as a rookie, notching six sacks.

The Atlanta Falcons traded up with the Seahawks to select University of California-Los Angeles linebacker Takk McKinley with the No. 26 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft. In order to get their guy, Atlanta gave up picks No. 31, 95 and 249 to move up just five spots. McKinley is an experienced tackler and excellent speed -- he ran track in high school. He's recovering from shoulder surgery in the offseason, but he figures to be a very good all-around 'backer for Atlanta in the long term.
