Falcons eye several prospects in Indy

February 27th, 2007 Comments off reports that the Falcons have interviewed a number of prospects over the course of the NFL Combine in Indianapolis. Several prospects indicated they have spoken with the Falcons, including defensive ends Adam Carriker (Nebraska), Ikaika Alama-Francis (Hawaii), and LaMarr Woodley (Michigan). NFL Draft Countdown rates Carriker as the third best defensive end prospect in the draft, and all three ends are given “Day One” grades by that website.

The team has also spoken with running backs Brandon Jackson (Nebraska) and Tyrone Moss (Miami FL), wide receiver Aundrae Allison (East Carolina), and offensive linemen Leroy Harris (N.C. State) and Ben Grubbs (Auburn). Both Allison and Grubbs receive “Day One” grades from NFL Draft Countdown as well.

None of the players are widely rated as potential options for the Falcons with their tenth overall pick. However, all are candidates to be chosen by the Falcons in the second round or later.
