Falcons sign third-round pick Zach Harrison

Chris Simms explains to Mike Florio how Desmond Ridder improved last season to make the cut for his Top 40 QB Countdown this year and outlines where the QB needs to prove himself.

The Falcons and third-round defensive lineman Zach Harrison have agreed on a contract.

Harrison signed a four-year deal with the team on Tuesday. The pact has a total value of over $5.568 million.

Harrison comes to Atlanta after playing at Ohio State. In 40 games for the Buckeyes, Harrison had 97 tackles, 24 tackles for loss, 11 sacks, an interception, nine passes defensed, four forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery.

The Falcons have also signed first-round running back Bijan Robinson, fourth-round defensive back Clark Phillips III, seventh-round safety DeMarcco Hellams, and seventh-round offensive lineman Jovaughn Gwyn. Second-round tackle Matthew Bergeron is the only unsigned pick left in Atlanta.
