Kent State Flashes

Jack Williams works out for Falcons

By admin Published: April 11, 2008

The Atlanta Falcons were at Dix Stadium friday morning working out former Kent State cornerback Jack Williams. The Falcons General Manager, Thomas Dimitroff, head coach Mike Smith and an area scout were reportedly there for the workout.

Does the high representation really mean anything as far Jack's draft status?

"You never know because those people keep things close to the vest," Kent State coach Doug Martin said. "It seems like a lot of people have come to work him out. New England has come to work him out. Atlanta was here (Friday). He had a nice workout on Pro Day where he ran really well. I think Jack is going to get an opportunity."

Some prognosticators view Williams as a mid-to-late round pick.

Another Flash who is looking for a shot at the next level is defensive lineman Colin Farrell, who tied Kevin Hogan for a team-high five sacks. He also had 16 tackles for a loss.

"I think Colin will get a shot as a free agent somewhere much like Danny Muir," Martin said. "If you get on at the right place you'll get a chance to make it and I think he'll get an opprtunity."

Muir was an undrafted free agent out of Kent State who was picked up by the Green Bay Packers and is still on their roster.
