Falcons hosting 35 locals for workouts today
The Falcons are scheduled to hold their local pro day today, set to feature 35 players. It will feature a chance for the team to get a closer look at some of the lesser known products with collegiate or prep ties to the state of Georgia. Last year, Clemson tight end Michael Palmer was able to emerge and land an undrafted free agent contract that led to him making the Falcons roster.
While the names of those players have yet to be officially disclosed, we do know of a few players that will be on hand. Georgia Tech RB Anthony Allen, Georgia LB Akeem Dent, North Alabama DT Nate Frazier, East Carolina WR Dwayne Harris, and according to the National Football Post, South Dakota State CB Cole Brodie’s name has been added to the list. North Carolina QB T.J. Yates’ agent Brian Ayrault also confirmed he will be on hand. It is yet unconfirmed, but suspected that Montana QB Justin Roper will also be on hand to work out.
We previously reported on some of the players that have local ties that could be on hand for the workouts. D. Orlando Ledbetter of the AJC also provides his own list. You can check that out by clicking here.
