Falcons to work out Kentucky DT Peters
Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports that Kentucky defensive tackle Corey Peters will visit the Falcons along with the Titans and Jets over the next ten days.
Peters ran a 4.98 at the Combine in February, and posted 26 bench reps at his pro day last month. A three-year starter at Kentucky, Peters is known for his disruptive capabilities combining for 8 sacks and 22 tackles for loss the past two seasons.
The Falcons have shown quite a bit of interest in some of the top defensive tackles in this year’s class. It could be in an attempt to shore up depth since Peria Jerry is coming off a knee injury and Jonathan Babineaux’s recent off-field troubles.
