A dark horse name that not a lot of fans have heard of is potentially emerging in Atlanta.
Brad Holmes, the Rams director of college scouting, is expected to interview for the Lions' general manager opening, sources tell ESPN. Holmes also is a candidate for the job with the Atlanta Falcons. He's spent 18 years climbing the ranks with the Rams. https://t.co/GfM9kDWu5f

The 41 year old Holmes currently lives in Atlanta and won a National Championship at NC A&T. Holmes has done a good job of finding value later in the draft — especially considering LA’s recent lack of draft capital in the early rounds. Holmes notably oversaw the drafting of possibly the greatest defensive lineman of all time in Aaron Donald.
We’ll keep you updated with any more rumors, and it’s being reported Rick Smith is the frontrunner at GM for the Falcons.
