UAB tackle Kaycee Ike has Workout Scheduled with Falcons
Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports that Alabama-Birmingham offensive tackle Kaycee Ike has a scheduled workout with the Atlanta Falcons on April 15. It’s possible that date is designated for the team’s annual local pro day, given that Georgia State defensive end Theo Agnew tweeted last week that he was scheduled to work out for the team around the same time.
The local pro day is a day set up for prospects that went to either college or high school in the Atlanta area, as well as throughout the state of Georgia. Ike is a native of Lawrenceville, a suburb of Atlanta.
Ike was a two-year starter for UAB, starting 11 games as a senior primarily at left tackle, and earning 12 starts at right tackle during his junior year. At his pro day earlier in March, he measured 6’4″ and weighed 297 pounds. He had a 5.02-second 40-yard dash with 22 bench reps of 225 pounds and a 26-inch vertical jump. He is not projected to be drafted, but could be a priority undrafted free-agent signing.
Agnew is a former transfer from Massachusetts. In two seasons at UMass, he started a combined nine games and had 66 tackles, four tackles for loss, one sack, two pass breakups, and two forced fumbles. He started primarily at defensive end at Georgia State when he transferred as a junior, but also saw snaps at defensive tackle. In two seasons at GSU, Agnew combined for 124 tackles, 14.5 tackles for loss, two sacks, four pass breakups and a fumble recovery. He too is projected as an undrafted free-agent candidate.
Previous participants in the Falcons local pro day have included tight end Michael Palmer, who made the team’s roster as an undrafted free agent in 2010. Linebacker Akeem Dent worked out at the local pro day the following year, and it helped him get drafted by the team in the third round.
