Forrest Lamp has 'formal' meeting with Falcons tonight 

INDIANAPOLIS -- Western Kentucky offensive tackle Forrest Lamp is set to have a formal meeting with the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night.

He lifted 225 pounds 34 times and is projected as the second rated guard in the draft.

He had a stellar performance against Alabama that NFL scouts are raving about. 

Lamp said he could play in the Falcons' outside zone blocking scheme. The Falcons hold the 31st overall pick in the NFL draft. 

“I would make a slight argument that I would be looking at that offensive line because you’ve got two guards that are aging and eligible free agency over the next (two) years,” Mayock said on his pre scouting combine conference call on Monday. “So, I would put guard in that equation as well, and I would put a guy like Forrest Lamp from Western Kentucky, would fit what Atlanta does to a T. And if they could go that way and get Forrest Lamp, I would love that."
