Falcons add Stanford's Toilolo in 4th round
April 27, 2013
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - The Atlanta Falcons have selected Stanford tight end Levine Toilolo in the fourth round of the NFL draft.
The 6-foot-8, 260-pound Toilolo (pronounced Toy-lo-lo) is Atlanta's first offensive player of the draft after the team used its first three picks for defensive help. Toilolo will have a chance to be mentored by veteran tight end Tony Gonzalez, who put off his retirement plans to return for the 2013 season.
Toilolo had 24 catches for 393 yards and four touchdowns in 2012. He had 10 career touchdown catches.
The big tight end was the Falcons' first of four compensatory picks on Saturday, including three in the seventh round.
