Flowery Branch, Ga. - Former Stony Brook center Paul Fenaroli '11 agreed to a three-year contract with the Atlanta Falcons on Tuesday morning. Fenaroli will head to Georgia on Wednesday for the start of training camp.

"I'm thrilled for Paul," head coach Chuck Priore said. "Paul was one of the toughest kids I've ever coached. I see Atlanta's blocking schemes as a great fit for Paul."

A two-time first-team All-Big South selection, Fenaroli started 38 straight games for the Seawolves. In his four seasons, he twice blocked for two 1,000-yard rushers in a season.

At an NFL pro-day at Fordham University, Fenaroli bench pressed 225 pounds 34 times, leading all players. He measured at 6-2 1/2 and 300 pounds. He ran the 40-yard dash in 5.15 seconds and recorded a vertical leap of 32 1/2 inches.
