New, comments

Our correspondent spoke with three prospects who might be on the team's radar.

Give it up for Nick Trist, who volunteered to be our eyes and ears on the ground at the Senior Bowl this week. He put together four audio interviews with prospects you'll want to know about, given the team's habit of drafting Senior Bowl participants and their status as useful prospects.

We begin with running back David Cobb, who has been impressing just about everyone as arguably the best, most complete back at the Senior Bowl. With the Falcons needing an RB and Cobb unlikely to go before the fourth round, he's a potential fit for the team, particularly as a complementary back for Devonta Freeman.

Then we get into Phillip Dorsett, who the Falcons appear to have genuine interest in. He's a speedy wide receiver out of Miami who has been making impressive catches all week, and the Falcons do have a legitimate need for a young, speedy receiver.

Lastly, we come to Grady Jarrett. The Clemson defensive tackle and Conyers, Georgia native is an intriguing defensive tackle with an uneven college track record.

I know you're wondering why I believe the Falcons might be interested in Jarrett. Apparently they've spoken with him at the Senior Bowl, he may be available in the 3rd or 4th round and he's got excellent athleticism for a 6'1", 298 pound defensive tackle, as well as excellent run-stopping skills. The Falcons still have a ton of bodies at defensive tackle, but if Corey Peters leaves this offseason, I can see the team being interested in him, particularly if they think he has the positional versatility to play some defensive end for Dan Quinn.
