The Falcons, who selected nine players in the 2014 NFL Draft, have signed 20 rookie free agents, the club said on Monday.

Wisconsin tight end Jacob Pedersen is among Atlanta’s post-draft signees. The 6-foot-5, 240-pound Pedersen caught 39 passes for 541 yards and three TDs for the Badgers in 2013. The Falcons also signed another Badgers tight end, Brian Wozniak (6-4, 255), who caught six passes for Wisconsin a season ago.

The Falcons have also added a rookie quarterback, signing Cornell’s Jeff Mathews, who threw for an Ivy League-record 11,284 yards in his four-season career (2010-2013).

The Falcons’ other undrafted free agent signings are as follows: Boise State wide receiver Geraldo Boldewijn, Hawaii linebacker Brenden Daley, Auburn defensive end Nosa Eguae, Utah State cornerback Devonta Glover-Wright, Miami (Fla.) fullback Maurice Hagens, Arkansas State wide receiver Julian Jones, North Greenville wide receiver Freddie Martino, Vanderbilt outside linebacker Walker May, South Carolina safety Kimario McFadden, Kent State fullback Roosevelt Nix, Toledo wide receiver Bernard Reedy, Kentucky defensive tackle Donte Rumph, Tennessee outside linebacker Jacques Smith, Syracuse running back Jerome Smith, Tennessee center James Stone, Kansas State wide receiver Tramaine Thompson and Pittsburgh punter Matt Yoklic.

    Several were confused by the contract sent to them. They had never actually played football, but they decided to accept, since it sounded like it could be fun and was way more money than they were currently earning.

    Falcons just signed a complete JV squad to beat up in practices.

    One of hose guys might end up having a big impact like undrafted rookies Joplo Bartu and Paul Worrilow.

    If Arkansas State wide receiver Julian Jones makes the team they are going to have to use his full name on the back of the jersey. Not sure Julio is going to be ok with this.

    Way to go Pederson! Keep on making your fellow Yoopers proud! We’ll be watching.

    I think the Falcons had a very decent draft. And Jeff Mathews looks like a very good developmental QB. Strong arm, good size, and leadership as 3 time team captain. Just needs to be coached up on some mechanics.

    So… three wideouts, two fullbacks, and ONE O-lineman??? I thought we needed depth there?
