Atlanta Falcons: Players to watch on Day 1 of the 2016 NFL Combine
By Kevin Knight
With players already arriving at the NFL Combine, it won’t be long until we get to see what we’ve all been waiting for: the on-field workouts.
The buzz has already turned up some interesting stories (like the Falcons being interested in WR Travis Benjamin), and soon we may hear tidbits about which prospects the Atlanta Falcons may have their eyes on. But for now, let’s focus on what information we can gain for ourselves.
Friday marks the beginning of the on-field workouts, and comprises the players in Group A (OL, RB, ST). While Atlanta probably isn’t in the market for a RB, they are certainly watching this OL group closely. The Falcons could use an infusion of youth at guard and a steady presence at center.
Luckily for the team, there are several intriguing ZBS prospects scattered throughout the draft class. Let’s take a look at a few that fans might want to keep their eyes on during Friday’s activities.
