MOBILE – Troy State defensive end Brandon Lang is a player worth tracking for the Falcons leading up to the NFL draft.
If they go cornerback in the first round — Boise State’s Kyle Wilson or Oklahoma State’s Perrish Cox — they would be back in the defensive end market.
Lang, of Tucker High, who had a strong week at the Senior Bowl, is trying to become the latest stud defensive end from Troy.
New York Giants’ Osi Umenyiora was drafted in the second round (56 overall) of the 2003 draft.
DeMarcus Ware went to the Dallas Cowboys in the first round (11th overall) of the 2005 draft.
“They went through this same process and made a name for themselves,” Lang said. “I just hope that I can do the same thing.”
