Falcons sit down with Louisville QB Froman
Eric Branch of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat reports that the Falcons had an “extensive sit down” with Louisville quarterback Adam Froman during his pro day last week on March 10.
Froman had a strong performance displaying passing skills and athleticism. He completed 33 of 35 passes during passing drills. He ran his 40-yard dash in 4.55 seconds, and have a 3-cone drill of 6.6 seconds, and short shuttle of 4.08 seconds. Those latter two times would have been tops at least month’s Scouting Combine among quarterbacks, and his 40 time would have placed third.
Froman has gone under the radar due to injuries limited him at Louisville. Injuries cut short both his junior and senior years after transferring from Santa Rose Junior College. He managed 15 starts in those years, managing to complete 60.3% of 403 passes for 2987 yards, 17 touchdowns, and 9 interceptions. Froman still has a lot to learn as a quarterback, as he didn’t start playing football until his sophomore year of high school.
The Falcons are relatively set at quarterback with Matt Ryan as the starter and Chris Redman as the backup. But the team could be interested in bringing in a fourth arm to compete and push third stringer John Parker Wilson.
