Second-year Atlanta Falcons general manager, Terry Fontenot will have a special draft assistant shadowing him this year in his 10-year-old son, Caden.

Like father, like son, Caden is a football guru and a big fan of mock drafts. So much so, Caden spends his weekend watching college film with his dad and uses a mock draft simulator, according to NFL Network’s Cameron Wolfe.

Fontenot claims his son’s mock drafts are actually “pretty good” because he spends time learning about the prospects.

Caden will, in fact, be in the Falcons’ war room on Draft Day wearing matching suits with his father, except instead of wearing dress shoes, he will be rocking a pair of Jordans.

Mock drafts, father-son bond and Jordan’s. A fun small behind-the-scenes look on a fun day at how family intersects with #Falcons GM Terry Fontenot draft process:
