349 posts in this topic

Falcons worked out Houston CB Howard Wilson at his old high school in DeSoto, Texas, according to source. Wilson (6-1, 184) projected 3-4 rounds of draft. Had 9 INTs in 29 games at Houston. Falcons also worked out Wilson's teammate, DE/OLB Tyus Bowser, a potential first-rounder. Bowser also visited Atlanta.

We also worked out Houston's Brandon Wilson (CB/S). Ran a 4.36 in the 40, with 24 bench press reps and a broad jump over 11 feet.

Check out @BR_DougFarrar's Tweet:

 

Ironhead is a baller, but played linebacker in college. The guy playing next to him was better. In the first game last year I was watching him and thought, "How on Earth did we end up with this guy?" Well he got kicked out of FSU where he actually played a true freshman. Both players could be steals but I'm biased.

Five teams made their way to Arkansas today for a last-minute workout for three pass catchers. Here are the details.

The Atlanta Falcons, Detroit Lions, New England Patriots, New York Jets and Tennessee Titans were all on hand for today’s workout.

The three players involved included receivers Keon Hatcher and Cody Hollister of Arkansas as well as tight end Jacob Hollister of Wyoming.

So, going based on the posts in this thread, these are our (so far reported/confirmed) top 30 visits:

(Local visits are excluded as they don't count toward the top 30)

Cam Keizur OC Portland St

Justin Evans S Texas A&M*

OJ Howard TE Alabama*

Keionta Davis DE UTC

Tyus Bowser OLB Houston*

Budda Baker S Washington*

Takkarist McKinnley OLB UCLA*

Taylor Reynolds CB James Madison

Elijah McGuire RB ULL

Tarell Basham DE Ohio*

Eric Saubert TE Drake

Tanner Vallejo LB Boise St

Samson Ebukam OLB EWU

Chris Wormley DT Michigan*

Anthony Firkser TE Harvard

Dawuane Smoot DE Illinois

Duke Riley LB LSU*

 

There are also two players in Grover Stewart, DT Albany St, Mitchell Paige, WR Indiana, and Kareem Hunt, RB Toledo, who are listed in their reports with multiple teams, and the statement being that these are teams which they have either worked out for, or had visits with, so either, both, or neither of those two could be top 30 visits as well.

That's 17-20 of our top 30, 8 of which are projected near or around when we pick. (Potential high picks are starred.)

Hollister and Hatcher are incredibly underrated. 

Good to see Jacob Hollister getting some looks; would fit in nicely as a potential Falcon

My guess is we will pick 1-2 more out of the list.  With the trades changing our draft position plus having a few prospects that are unexpectedly still on the board (&off the  board) we may select a player or two not on the "Visit" list.  Still think it will be players DQ/TD are familiar with ie from Combine interview we are not aware of, etc.   But you are correct.....a high percentage of players we draft are from the "visit' list and almost all are on the known "Falcons interest" list....

So the result is 4 (or 5) of our reported top 30 visits going undrafted.

Be interesting to see how many of them we pick up as UDFA
