The Falcons have found a handful of local gems over the years, and they're going back to the well today, hosting a pair of likely UDFA prospects who grew up in Georgia.
#Falcons LOCALS day is Tues. Portland St RB D.J. Adams (Norcross) & Tenn-Chat CB Kadeem Wise (Berkmar) to take part. http://t.co/QDL7n6Pnxp— D. Orlando Ledbetter (@AJCFalcons) April 14, 2014
Private workout for the home team in the AM. One of several, but I must say, this one is special. #DirtyBirdsperhapsss?! #Falcons Blessed.— D.J. Adams (@D10Adams) April 15, 2014
The Falcons are still looking to add talent at RB and DB, and both players have real talent to recommend them. Adams isn't a burner, but he has quality vision and piled up 1,600 yards and 19 touchdowns in 2013. Wise is a physical player who may project as more of a safety at the next level, and he had 75 tackles, a pick and eight pass deflections in 2013.
Given the Falcons' real success with UDFAs in recent years and the local ties, you shouldn't be surprised to see one or both of the Adams-Wise duo in Atlanta at the start of training camp.
