Falcons eye sleeper at safety
Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports that the Falcons are looking at Tennessee State safety prospect Anthony Levine. Tennessee State held their pro day Friday, and while the Falcons were not present, they have to date shown “considerable” interest.
Levine measured 6′ 193 pounds and ran a 4.43 40 time at the pro day. He also did 19 bench reps of 225 pounds, displayed a 35-inch vertical jump, and jumped 9 feet-6 inches in the broad jump. Levine has combined for 5 interceptions and 8 passes defended the past two seasons at Tennessee State. He is considered a sleeper and potential late round draft pick, that may have boosted his stock with his pro day performance. Consensus Draft Services ranks him as the 14th best free safety in the class.
Mike Organ of the Tennessean notes that defensive ends Kellen Woodard and Rodney Fritz also had good workouts at the school’s pro day along with Levine. Although there is no report on any of the numbers they may have posted during the session.
