Pro days have long been over, however that doesn’t mean that there wasn’t any Atlanta Falcons-related draft news from the past week.
The National Football Post revealed that the Falcons have shown interest in a number of players including Florida State fullback Chad Abram, Buffalo cornerback Najja Johnson, Vanderbilt wide receiver Chris Boyd and Louisville safety Hakeem Smith.
All four players are projected to be late-round picks and possibly undrafted free agent candidates.
Boyd is interesting given some of his off-field concerns that led to him being kicked off Vanderbilt’s team last summer. The Falcons’ interest in him could be due to them trying to gain more insight into those events, but also because the team has already done the background work that wouldn’t preclude them selecting him if he’s already passed their strict character filter.
