2014 Prospects The Falcons Have Shown Interest In

Recommended Posts

Since this part of the offseason is kicking into gear and because it worked well enough last season to consolidate all the interview/visits/private workout/pro day topics into one. If the Falcons are somehow connected to a prospect, including citing them just going to a pro day, then post it here. Last year we were able to figure out the prospects they had the most interest in and, looking over that list again, it seemed like private workouts were the main indicator. I will also put their consensus draft grade with them and they're subject to change as the process continues.

Finally! The off-season will pick up. As secretive as the Falcons are they are just as thorough and typically interview players they end up drafting...often more than once. Sometimes we as fans miss a player that was interviewed.....but at least now we will see the positions and type of players the Falcons are considering.

Thanks PG for starting this thread! Very informative and helpful!

I'm excited to see a versatile player like Kain Colter being looked at. He is a gadget player who does everything well and could provide virtual depth at a number of positions (QB, WR and RB).

As a QB at Northwestern he had a 69% completion rate. As a runner he had 4.85 yard average. As a receiver he averaged 10.8 yards/catch.

Every team needs a guy like this kid.
