NFL Draft Fantasy Fallout - Thomas Brown, Jalen Parmele, Xavier Omon



The Falcons drafted Thomas Brown (172nd overall) but with Michael Turner and Jerious Norwood, they don’t really need a running back.  Brown could catch on with special teams, but that’s about it.







Jalen Parmele (176th overall)
is a powerful fullback-type, but with both Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams on the Dolphins’ roster, he’ll be lucky to see any playing time.






Unlike the first two guys, the awesomely-named Xavier Omon (179th overall) actually has a chance to see some playing time.  He rushed for 2,337 yards and 37 touchdowns in his senior year at Northwest Missouri State and had over 1000 rushing attempts over his last three seasons.  He’s the definition of a workhorse back.  If Marshawn  Lynch were to go down with injury, the only other backs on the roster are Jonathan Evans, Fred Jackson and Dwayne Wright.  No, I don’t know anything about them either.  Considering that, it’s not impossible that the rookie could get a lot of carries – even several starts  -- if there’s a serious Lynch injury.
