NFL Draft 2012: Falcons Attending Michael Egnew's Pro Day

Rest assured, Atlanta Falcons fan. If there's a tight end to be scouted in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Falcons will find a way to get an eye ball on him. Next on the list: Michael Egnew of the Missouri Tigers, who'll be working out Thursday at Mizzou with the Rams, 49ers, Giants, and Patriots among those also in attendance.

Of course, it's technically Missouri's pro day, and not just Egnew's, so the Falcons will also catch a look at defensive tackle Dominique Hamilton, wide receiver Jerrell Jackson and defensive end/linebacker Jacquies Smith. The first two don't play positions of need, but a tweener player like Smith could be a fine consideration for Mike Nolan's new system.

Egnew is expected to be picked in the middle rounds after a strong Combine workout. The Falcons have middle round picks! He had 523 yards on 50 catches last year.
