Two more prospects already visited Falcons

Football.com reports that USC wide receiver Steve Smith and Wake Forest guard Steve Vallos have already visited the Falcons.

Smith was a very productive receiver at USC as a starter for three seasons that was overshadowed for much of his career by Dwayne Jarrett and Mike Williams. He was a three-year starter, filling the role as the No. 2 receiver opposite those two players. He started a total of 22 games while at USC, and caught 161 passes for 2634 yards (16.4 avg) and 20 touchdowns. He measured 6′ 197 pounds at the Combine, where he ran an impressive 4.44 40-yard dash, and his 38-inch vertical leap was among the top at his position.

He is considered a second round pick by most draft experts. NFL.com’s Mike Mayock ranks him as the 42nd best player in the draft.

Vallos (6’3″ 305) started 48 games for the Demon Deacons at multiple positions for four seasons. The past two seasons he has played at right tackle. As a sophomore, he split time at left tackle and right guard, and also played the latter as a freshman. He tallied a total of 494 knockdown blocks. Due to his lack of height however, most draft experts believe he will play guard at the NFL level. Most experts feel that he is a late round pick with the potential to move into the middle rounds.

The dates of their visits were unspecified.
