Former Georgia State player to visit Falcons 

Ulrick John played at Georgia State 

Former Patriots tackle Ulrick John, who played at Georgia State, is set to visit the Falcons on Monday, a source familiar with the situation has confirmed.

Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle first reported the visit citing “league sources.” 

John was selected by the Indianapolis Colts in the seventh round of the NFL draft in 2014.

He never played for the Colts. He has bounced around the league and has made stops in Miami, Arizona, Green Bay and New England. He played in 10 games and made three starts.  

John, a 6-foot-6, 300-pound offensive tackle, was the second player in Georgia State history to be drafted. Defensive lineman Christo Bilukidi was picked by the Raiders in the sixth round in 2012.

John, a native of Hinesville who played at Bradwell Institute, played several positions on the offensive line during his career at Georgia State. He earned honorable-mention all-Sun Belt honors after starting 11 games at left tackle last season.
