Kennesaw State’s Dante Blackmon invited to Falcons, Colts rookie mini camps

Kennesaw State defensive back Dante Blackmon is the first Owl to be invited to an NFL rookie mini-camp.

Blackmon was invited to the Indianapolis Colts' and Atlanta Falcons' rookie mini-camp tryouts this week, according to Kennesaw State.

Blackmon, a 5-foot-11, 180 pound redshirt senior from Covington, Ga., played two seasons at Kennesaw State and could become the first Kennesaw State football player to sign with an NFL team.

A graduate of Covington’s Eastside High School, Blackmon had six interceptions and one touchdown in his final season as an Owl.

Here’s what the Owls and fans had to say about Blackmon’s invitations:
