Synjyn Days to the Atlanta Falcons
Georgia Tech fans are already a little salty that the Falcons did not take Jerry Attaochu when it was a well-known fact that they needed a pass-rusher and Attaochu was available to them.

This season the Falcons are going to need to add to their stable of running backs which has some decent young talent in it.
Devonta Freeman, Antone Smith and Jacquizz Rodgers all bring something different to the backfield for Atlanta and have all been productive in their own right.
But the Falcons still need to get a runner that can be their main ball carrier with the new “run first” philosophy that they are supposed to adopt under new head coach Dan Quinn.
Synjyn Days, for Georgia Tech fans who want to see a local boy make good, would fit that need and would also bring a lot of attention to the Falcons.
There have been rumors that the Falcons may be wanting to bring in Georgia stud running back Todd Gurley come draft day if their much needed pass rusher is not available.
But you already know that Georgia Tech fans would rather have their guy running in the Atlanta backfield than a UGA guy.
