1st Round
David Pollack
DE - University of Georgia - 6'2" 261
40: 4.75 - Shuttle: 3.94 - Cone: 6.87
Bench: 25 reps - Wonderlic: 30
Strengths: Production is unparalleled...Tough and fiesty...Has a motor that never stops and is always giving 110%...One of the most feared pass rushers in the draft...Tough and strong...Very quick and agile...A playmaker with great instincts...Won't be outworked...Great character.
Weaknesses: Is undersized and needs to get bigger and stronger...Doesn't have top end speed...May have trouble against the huge offensive tackles he will face in the pros.
Notes: Doesn't have all the physical tools you look for but has been one of the most dominant defensive players in the country the last three seasons...You can bet some team will fall in love with his production and attitude.
Alternates: DE Justin Tuck
Pollack gives us the best possible DE that we could get in this draft and would be a monster next to Coleman and Kerney

2nd Round
Luis Castillo
DT - Northwestern University - 6'3" 301
40: 4.79 - Shuttle: 4.24 - Cone: DNP
Bench: 32 reps - Wonderlic: 37
Strengths: Good athletic ability...Is very strong...Always gives 100% and has a motor that never stops...Shows good quickness...Does all the little things...Developing player who still has some upside and potential.
Weaknesses: Needs to work on refining his technique and doing the little things...Still somewhat raw...Isn't as physical as you would like.
Notes: A former prep wrestler...Family is from the Dominican Republic...Has the physical tools that the pros look for and could rise up boards as the draft nears.
Alternate: DT Mike Patterson
would be able to plug the middle from Day one. would excell at NT for us

3rd Round
James Butler
FS - Georgia Institute Of Technology - 6'2" 213
40: 4.51 - Shuttle: 4.01 - Cone: 7.11
Bench: 16 reps - Wonderlic: 18
Strengths: Very smart...Good size and a solid frame...A leader and hard worker...Excels in coverage as well as run support...A playmaker...Still has a lot of potential.
Weaknesses: Doesn't have a lot of starting experience...Good, not great speed...Has to get stronger...Raw and has a ways to go in terms of technique.
Notes: All of his weaknesses can be corrected and he is the type of guy who will put in the time to improve...Very good prospect who still has a lot of upside.
Alternate: FS Gerald Sensabaugh
Butler Reminds me of Darren Sharper. he needs to be behind a guy like Keion Carpenter for a year but he is the right guy for us in the future

4th Round
Boomer Grigsby
LB - Illinois State University - 6'0" 249
40: 4.60 - Shuttle: DNP - Cone: 7.10
Bench: 32 reps - Wonderlic: 34
Strengths: Solidly built...Excellent speed...Very productive...Fiery and extremely competitive...Always around the ball and seemingly in on every play... Projects to OLB and MLB on the Pro Level.
Weaknesses: Doesn't have the ideal height you look for...May be too confident in his ability at times...Doesn't work through traffic well...Not an explosive tackler.
Notes: First name is James...Prolific and highly decorated player at the I-AA level...One of the top small school sleepers in the draft.
Alternate: LB James Kinney
Very good player who will be depth for a while or could end up being our SLB

5th Round (From Denver)
Stanford Routt
CB - University of Houston - 6'1" 193
40: 4.29 - Shuttle: 3.92 - Cone: 6.64
Bench: DNP - Wonderlic: 23
Strengths: Has good size...Is an excellent natural athlete...More quick than fast despite his track pedigree and experience...Still has some upside.
Weaknesses: Gets by on his athleticism more than anything...Speed is only average...Technique and instincts are lacking...Very raw and will need a lot of development.
Notes: Also a track star but doesn't play that fast...Has some physical tools to work with and could turn out to be a player with good coaching.
Alternate: CB Karl Paymah
would be a good Developmental CB behind Webster.

5th Round
Justin Geisinger
OL - Vanderbilt University - 6'4" 322
10: 1.84 - Shuttle: 4.62 - Cone: 7.87
Bench: 34 reps - Wonderlic: 29
Strengths: Has a lot of experience...Good size with a big frame...Team leader...Is very strong...Smart, technically sound and knows all the tricks of the trade.
Weaknesses: Not a great natural athlete...Has short arms...Does not move that well...Struggles in space...Will have trouble with speed rushers...May have to change positions.
Notes: Could possibly move inside to guard at the next level...Doesn't have the ideal physical tools you look for but with his size, experience and intangibles he should at least develop into a solid backup.
Alternate: OL Daniel Loper

6th Round
Rob Hunt
OL - North Dakota State University - 6'4" 301
10: 1.77 - Shuttle: 4.50 - Cone: 7.54
Bench: 31 reps - Wonderlic: 25
Strengths: Team leader and captain...Very tough and has been extremely durable...Has the frame to add weight and get bigger...Has good speed and athleticism...Has some upside.
Weaknesses: Needs to add some bulk...Needs to hit the weight room and get stronger...Has not played against top competition...Very raw and will need to be developed.
Notes: Good sleeper prospect with some tools...Has a chance to be drafted late as a developmental prospect but won't make an immediate contribution at the pro level
Alternate: OL Eric Ghiaciuc
great Lineman and would help out the team in a backup role to start with

7th Round
Chase Lyman
WR - University of California - 6'3" 217
40: 4.50 - Shuttle: DNP - Cone: DNP
Bench: 16 reps - Wonderlic: 24
Strengths: Has excellent size and a solid build...Has excellent speed and is a good athlete...A physical receiver...Very productive when healthy...Smart player...Has good hands...Was having an excellent senior season before getting injured...Still has a high upside.
Weaknesses: Coming back from yet another injury and durability will be a major concern...Can't stay on the field...Most recent knee injury will have to check out...Still raw and hasn't played a lot...A boom or bust player who will be a major risk.
Notes: Father Brad played for UCLA and late the Houston Oilers in the NFL...Physical tools are very intriguing and he could end up being a steal if he can ever stay healthy.
Alternate: WR Reggie Harrell
a very good Developmental WR if he could ever stay healthy

Agility results are from the combine (pro day if the combine drill is unavailable) and are from nfldraftscout.com. all scouting reports from Scott Wright.

When you have Michael Vick you don't need anybody else, period.

He will be the best QB in history when hes done.

I agree with the second part but in the first part I have to say Football is a team game. Vick can;t play Defense. Vick can run an offense but he can't do special teams either. Vick is the best offensive weapon in the NFL. and by shoring up the defense this year Atlanta can worry about getting Vick better weapons next year.
