Falcons QB Matt Ryan will be reunited with another first-round pick from Boston College, Bucs RT Gosder Cherilus, who blocked for him with the Eagles.

"Goz is one of my all-time favorite college teammates," Ryan said last week. "A guy that was as tough as it gets, was an offensive lineman that would protect you no matter what. And he's an even better person, too. Just a really, really good person, great teammate."
