Falcons TWESTOTE (Tweet, Stat, or Quote) of the Day

I know many Falcoholics have an enormous man-crush on Derrick Locke. He's not the only undersized, sure-handed, quick-footed (I think that's a word) capable blocker the Falcons are looking at though. Kendall Hunter (Oklahoma State) is another RB the Falcons have eyed during the pre-draft period. Jeff Latzke (Associated Press College Football Writer) had this to say today:

Hunter had hoped to improve his draft stock at the school's pro day Wednesday with a quicker time in the 40-yard dash than the 4.53 seconds he recorded at the NFL combine.

Instead, he ended up in the 4.5-second range again while running with and against the wind on the Boone Pickens Stadium turf. He seemed disappointed, but an Atlanta Falcons scout told him it was a good performance considering the chilly, windy conditions.

Granted, 22 teams were represented at OK State's pro day. But I personally think it's telling that he received some assurance from a Falcons scout specifically. I'm wrong more often than not, which means this probably means nothing. Still an interesting tidbit. And to be honest, I wouldn't mind at all if he supplanted He-Who-Cannot-Stay-On-The-Field.

Discuss.
