The Atlanta Falcons also reportedly spent time scouting former Louisiana-Lafayette tight end LaDarius Green at the Senior Bowl. Green caught 51 passes for 606 yards this season to go along with eight touchdowns for the Ragin Cajuns. Green is thought to be one of the top tight end prospects in the draft. In his career he totaled 149 receptions for over 2,200 yards and 22 touchdowns.
The Falcons were reportedly busy at the Senior Bowl today having also interviewed Georgia defensive back Brandon Boykin and Appalachian State wide receiver Brian Quick.
Atlanta gave a one-year contract extension to tight end Tony Gonzalez this season but the Falcons will soon be looking for a long-term solution at the position. Gonzalez caught 80 passes for 875 yards and eight touchdowns this season for the Falcons but has recently discussed retirement.
