LB Akeem Ayers

The Falcons conducted workouts to two Pac-10 linebackers on Saturday and Sunday according to sources.

On Saturday, the team got a look at UCLA outside linebacker Akeem Ayers, projected by many as a first round pick. Ayers tweeted about his on campus workout. Sunday, the team headed north to get a look at Oregon inside linebacker Casey Matthews on campus per a National Football Post report. Matthews is the younger brother of current Packers star Clay Matthews III, whose father was none other than ex-Falcon linebacker Clay Matthews, Jr. The younger Matthews is seen more as a middle round pick for this year’s upcoming draft.
