The Falcons signed DE Jonathan Massaquoi, a fifth-round pick from Troy, the team announced Friday.

The 6-2, 264-pound Massaquoi, who left Troy after his junior season, was a two-year starter at left end, notching 13 sacks in 2010 and 6½ sacks in '11.

In PFW's 2012 Draft Preview, personnel analyst Nolan Nawrocki wrote of Massaquoi: "Immature, inconsistent, enigmatic rush end who showed legit pass-rush skills as a sophomore, but bulked up as a junior at cost of play speed."

All six Atlanta draft choices have now signed.
