Summary of Hawk draft picks...

by: Chris Sullivan

This is what the Hawks have done over the last couple of days...

Round Pick Player School Position
1 28 Laurence Jackson USC DE
2 38 John Carlson Notre Dame TE
4 121 Red Bryant Texas A&M DT
5 163 Owen Schmitt WVU FB
6 189 Tyler Schmitt San Diego St LS
7 233 Justin Forsett California RB
7 235 Brandon Coutu Georgia K

Not too shabby, but I think we're all still scratching our head over the 6th round long snapper... he's going to have a lot more pressure to perform next year than almost any other long snapper in professional football... yowzers. Good luck, Tyler!
