Lande: "When I watched him on film, the good testing numbers he had didn't correlate. He's a good enough athlete, but he's not special. Yet when you watch him work out, he looks like a dancing bear. I'd be leery of starting him early because he's a bit raw. In terms of two or three years down the road, he could surprise a lot of people. He's got a lot of potential. He's undersized, but he's so athletic he can make a lot of blocks that a lot of NFL linemen can't."

Fourth round: Safety Christian Thompson, South Carolina State, 6-foot, 211 pounds.

College: Second-team All-American selection, first-team all-conference choice recorded 141 tackles,
three interceptions, one sack and two fumble recoveries after transferring from Auburn.

Preseason: Has three tackles, including a big hit against the Falcons. Displaying signs that he can be an enforcer in run support and patrolling the middle of the secondary, but hasn't made plays on the ball.

Lande: "He's an interesting guy, good size and speed and he's a physical player. What you want to see from him is more playmaking ability to separate himself. That's going to be the key to whether he can become a starter in the NFL. He's a good athlete and he has a chance to do something."

Fifth round: Cornerback, return specialist Asa Jackson, Cal-Poly, 5-foot-10, 190 pounds.

College: Third-team All-American, three-time all-conference selection has 199 career tackles, eight
interceptions, 40 pass deflections, three forced fumbles, one sack, 14.7 career punt return average. Returned three interceptions for touchdowns.

Preseason: Returned a punt 85 yards for a touchdown, but was nullified by a holding penalty. Two
tackles, one pass deflection against the Lions.

Lande: "Ideally, I look at him as a backup corner. He's a physical guy and really quick. He likes
to get his hands on receivers. I don't see top-end explosiveness and speed, but he's very smooth and fluid. He's not afraid to hit. He's a naturally smart kid. If he was bigger, I'd like to see what he could do at safety."

Sixth round: Wide receiver Tommy Streeter, University of Miami, 6-foot-5, 220 pounds.

College: Caught 52 career passes for 967 yards and nine touchdowns before declaring for the draft
after his junior season.

Preseason: Was targeted three times with no receptions against the Lions, caught two passes for 12
yards against the Falcons. Imposing red-zone target, but hands are inconsistent and seems to motor down out of his cuts.

Lande: "Big kid has Terrell Owens kind of size. He's a huge guy who can run real fast and has made highlight reel catches, but drops passes right in his bread basket. He's so raw, though. He's an upright guy in his routes.

"He runs with no body lean. He doesn't run with any good bend in and out of his breaks. He has to slow down to make a cut. He's so unsmooth. He's a project worth trying to develop. You might be better off cutting him and putting him on the practice squad."

Seventh round: Defensive end DeAngelo Tyson, Georgia, 6-foot-2, 310 pounds.

College: All-Southeastern Conference freshman selection played in 50 games with 79 tackles, three sacks, 8 1/2 tackles for losses, one forced fumble and 23 quarterback pressures.

Preseason: Two tackles in two games. Opportunity for roster spot increased when Ryan McBean fractured his left ankle.

Lande: "He's a good football player. He's not an edge guy at defensive end for a 4-3 team and he's not a massive defensive tackle for a 3-4 team, but he might be the perfect end for a 3-4 team. He's got real long arms. He stays on his feet really well. He's a really good two-gap guy.

"He figures out blocking schemes. He's a natural athlete who can run, but he doesn't have much real explosiveness. He chases down plays. He's a real intriguing guy. I wouldn't be shocked if he's one of those young starting guys in two or three years. He always hustles. The guy competes every single snap."
