Falcons to hold top-30 draft visit with CB Kool-Aid McKinstry

The Atlanta Falcons are expected to host Alabama cornerback Kool-Aid McKinstry on a top-30 draft visit, Bleacher Report’s Jordan Schultz reported Thursday evening.

McKinstry, who will likely be selected late in the first round or early in the second, is a prospect the Falcons could target if they trade back from pick No. 8. There’s also a chance McKinstry will still be available for Atlanta in the second round (pick No. 43), but that seems unlikely.

McKinstry is recovering from a broken bone in his foot but is expected to be ready for training camp. The former Alabama standout plays with the kind of swagger that NFL cornerbacks need to have. His versatility and overall athleticism could complement CB A.J. Terrell in the Falcons’ secondary.

Atlanta will also meet with Alabama EDGE Dallas Turner and Toledo’s Quinyon Mitchell on top-30 draft visits.
