NFL Draft Rumors: Atlanta Falcons working out Jake Matthews


The Atlanta Falcons are thinking about what they can do this May to improve their team through the draft, and any number of prospects seem to be making themselves available. While trading up to hit a home run by drafting Sammy Watkins or Jadeveon Clowney is a very real possibility, it appears that the Falcons are also looking at ll options that could be available to them at No. 6 overall and that includes Texas A&M offensive tackle Jake Matthews.

According to Falcons beat writer Vaughn McClure, Matthews will be visiting the Falcons the week after Easter.

One area that Falcons have been looking to improve is their offensive line, as it’s been a bad year for Matt Ryan. Getting their franchise quarterback proper protection seems to be on Atlanta’s list of things to do and Matthews is one of the best prospects at his position.

No one can know what a team will be doing this far away from the draft, as the projections are still all over the place, but Matthews heading to the Falcons at No. 6 overall is now something to consider more so now than before.
