Falcons Pro Day Round-Up 3/11
The Falcons scouts and coaches continue to travel to various pro days this week.
Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports that the Falcons have shown interest in Minnesota QB Adam Weber, who held his pro day on Tuesday. Weber reportedly had a good workout on Tuesday. He is projected as a potential late round/free agent prospect due to high turnover rate and question size and arm strength.
On Wednesday, the Falcons were in attendance at the pro days of Alabama, Wisconsin, and Georgia Tech.
All 32 teams were on hand at Alabama’s pro day, according to the university. There, they saw RB Mark Ingram improve his 40 time from the Combine, running in the 4.47 to 4.53 range in the 40-yard dash at the pro day.
All but the Cincinnati Bengals were on hand to watch several Wisconsin prospects according to Tom Mulhern of Madison.com. There the Falcons were able to see RB John Clay and TE Lance Kendricks improve their disappointing 40 times from the Combine. As well as get a look at offensive lineman Bill Nagy, who had a nice workout alongside top blockers Gabe Carimi and John Moffitt.
D. Orlando Ledbetter tweeted that Falcons head coach Mike Smith was on hand for Georgia Tech’s pro day, as the team typically sends its top officials to local pro days. WR Kevin Cone surprised with a 4.37 40 time despite only catching 6 passes last season.
The Falcons were also on hand for Fort Valley State’s pro day yesterday, taking a look at wide receiver Ricardo Lockette who emerged at the Combine with a 4.37 40. The Falcons talked to Lockette while in Indianapolis. He followed up with 22 bench reps at his pro day.
On Thursday, the Falcons were on hand at Nebraska’s pro day according to Brian Christopherson of Lincoln Journal Star who noted all 32 NFL teams were on hand at Nebraska.
Mark Maloney of the Lexington Herald-Leader reports the Falcons were among the 26 teams on hand for Kentucky’s pro day on Thursday as well. Perhaps to check out explosive RB Derrick Locke and WR Randall Cobb, the school’s two most prominent NFL draft prospects.
