San Jose State S Akeem King has visited the Seahawks and Raiders.
In addition, King is set to work out for the Falcons on Wednesday. He jumped onto the prospect radar by sprinting to a 4.39 forty at his pro day as a 6-foot-1, 215-pounder. He posted 71 tackles last year. King could draw interest late in Day 3. If his name isn't called, he'll be a priority free agent. Apr 14 - 8:52 PM

Would I be wrong in saying that this is another draft pick based on need? Or lack of capable depth here in the later rounds? At least that's the way I am viewing this draft.

I really like how this draft has worked out. It doesn't matter to me who picked which player, or who decided who's best for the Falcons and who is not, I like who the Falcons have drafted. No complaints from me where the draft goes.

GO FALCONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
