Simmons will workout for Falcons in April
Chris Steuber of Scout.com reports that Minnesota cornerback Traye Simmons will be among other local draft prospects that will work out in Atlanta on April 12. A previous report indicated that Clemson tight end Michael Palmer will be another one of those players.
As Steuber explains, the league has a limit on how many players can be worked out by each team at their own facilities, capping the number at thirty. But for players that played high school or college football in the local area, teams are allowed to designate one day for workouts of those prospects circumventing that rule. The Falcons have designated that day to be April 12.
Simmons is a native of Marietta, Georgia.
