WSU lineman Joe Dahl continues to get major attention from NFL teams as he prepares for the upcoming NFL draft. On Tuesday Pullman welcomed Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn, general manager Thomas Dimitroff and offensive line coach Chris Morgan. The Falcons staff was there to put Dahl through a private workout as documented by Cougar offensive line coach Clay McGuire.
Morgan and Quinn may have some familiarity with Dahl as they are both former members of the Seahawks organization. A team making a special journey to the Palouse would seem to indicate very high interest. The Falcons definitely have a need at the guard position as well, with Alex Mack and Jake Matthews the only above-average starters on their offensive line. Another team that seems to be high on Dahl on the Oakland Raiders according to insider Victor Cotto.
