A group of key Falcons decision makers reportedly took a closer look at a pair of Towson University products.
According to Jason La Canfora of CBS, head coach Mike Smith, G.M. Thomas Dimitroff and assistant G.M. Scott Pioli were among team officials attending an on-campus workout for Towson running back Terrance West and cornerback Jordan Love.
It’s unclear when the workout was held. (A hat tip to D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, who had mentioned La Canfora’s report on his blog.)
West rushed for 2,509 yards and 41 touchdowns on 413 carries in 2013 for Towson, which lost in the FCS title game. With postseason play, Towson played a 16-game slate, which helps explain West’s workload. West (5-9, 225) attended the NFL Scouting Combine and is expected to be drafted.
A Georgia transfer, Love defended 10 passes for Towson in 2013. According to La Canfora, Love showed well at Towson’s Pro Day after not being invited to the Combine.
Running back and cornerback are positions where the Falcons could use reinforcements. While a club’s willingness to work out players isn’t exactly a surefire predictor of future employment with the club, the Falcons’ presence at Towson is noteworthy.
