The Atlanta Falcons just announced they have signed three of their draft picks to contracts and added an undrafted free agent.

Matt Bosher, a punter/kicker selected in the sixth-round, Andrew Jackson, an offensive lineman taken in the seventh round and defensive end Cliff Matthews, another seventh-round choice, have agreed to four year contracts.

The Falcons also signed undrafted free agent Jacob Harfman, a punter from the University of Southern California. Harfman and Bosher will likely compete for the punting job. Bosher also can handle kickoffs, and the presence of these two means the Falcons likely will let punter/kickoff specialist Michael Koenen leave via free agency.

Place-kicker Matt Bryant remains an unrestricted free agent. Although Bosher and Harfman each have done some place kicking in the past, neither has a consistent track record like the veteran Bryant.
