New Falcons coach Dan Quinn mentioned Kemal Ishmael first when discussing the team's free safety opening.
Dezmen Southward wasn't mentioned at all and appears ticketed for cornerback in Quinn's Cover 3/press system. Ishmael struggled at free safety last year, but looks like the favorite to start in Week 1. Quinn also mentioned Charles Godfrey and converted CB Ricardo Allen as in the mix at free safety.

Falcons signed seventh-round S Kemal Ishmael to a four-year contract.

Ishmael (5-foot-11, 206) produced on the field at Central Florida, but he isn't a great athlete. At the Knights' Pro Day, he ran a 4.63 forty, posted a 35 1/2" vertical, and did 21 bench press reps. Ishmael will compete for a special teams or practice squad role this season.
