Fifth-Round Pick Biermann and Falcons Come to Terms


The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is reporting that the Falcons have come to terms on a 4-year deal with defensive end Kroy Biermann, the team’s fifth-round draft selection. Biermann, 6-foot-3, 241 pounds, played in 52 career games at the University of Montana and totaled 220 tackles and 32 sacks. Here is his bio from the Falcons website:

The 2007 Buck Buchanan Award winner as the best defensive player in the Football Championship Series (formerly D-IAA), Biermann will have to make the transition from his customary defensive end position to outside linebacker in the NFL. Biermann used his burst off the snap, instincts and high motor to rack up gaudy numbers last season (72 tackles, 15 sacks, five forced fumbles) in helping lead Montana to a national championship.

He earned eight letters at Hardin High School: three each in football and wrestling and two in track. He was a first team all-state pick and team captain as a junior and senior at linebacker. He was chosen first team all-conference at running back in 2002 and 2003. He participated in Montana’s Annual East-West Shrine Game.

His high school football coaches were Kelly Kinsey and former (1971-75) Griz tight end Duane Walker. Biermann was one of the state’s premier wrestlers at the A level and placed second in the state as a junior and senior. His senior year in wrestling he was team captain, had the most take-downs and most pins, and was voted his team’s Most Valuable Wrestler.
