Falcons to work out UCLA kicker
Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports that the Falcons have a private workout scheduled with UCLA kicker Kai Forbath today on Wednesday.
The UCLA product was one of the most accurate kickers in college football the past few years, connecting on around 84% of his 101 career attempts. With a big leg and top accuracy, Forbath is considered one of the top kickers in this class and projected as a late round pick.
Falcons current kicker Matt Bryant is coming off a strong season, but is entering the final year of his contract and will turn 36 in May. The Falcons may want to go with a youth movement at the position. The Falcons have not drafted a specialist since they took punter Harold Alexander in the third round of the 1993 draft. They have not drafted a kicker since Allan Leavitt in 1977.
