Falcons worked out Utah’s Bolles, Asiata


The Falcons, who are in the offensive linemen market after the retirement of right guard Chris Chester, worked out Utah linemen Garett Bolles and Isaac Asiata last week in Salt Lake City.

Bolles widely ranked as the second best tackle in the draft behind Wisconsin’s Ryan Ramcyzk. At 6-foot-5, 297 pounds, he could be converted to guard in the Falcons’ outside zone blocking scheme.

Asiata is projected as the seventh best guard in the draft and expected to be picked in the third round according to NFLDraftScout.com.
