2012 NFL Draft: Falcons Looking At Louisiana-Lafayette Corner, According To Report

Atlanta has resigned Brent Grimes and did their best to restructure the contract of Dunta Robinson and act like he was still wanted, but there's no such as thing as too much depth in the secondary in the modern NFL's throw-mageddon game. NFL Draft Bible reports that University of Louisiana*** (clarification coming) corner Dwight "Bill" Bentley has some interest from the Birds:

Bentley is a 5-10, 182 lb. prospect considered to be anywhere from a second to fourth round pick. As for his collegiate affiliation, Bentley played for Louisiana-Lafayette, not Louisiana-Monroe. The biggest difference, other than the terrain, the local accents, the predominant local religious affiliation and a brutal five-hour drive? The Ragin' Cajuns are coming off of one of their most successful seasons in school history (even though they finished 100th in the nation in pass defense) while ULM remains a Sun Belt doormat (the doormat of doormats, essentially...doormatic, if you will).
