Falcons Draft Targets: WR Courtney Roby

FLOWERY BRANCH – Going into the 2005 NFL Draft, Atlanta has needs at each position – some more than others, but each spot can improve with a solid draft and college free agent signings. Here is a look at one such player.

Player: Courtney Roby – Wide receiver

Info: The Falcons might be looking for a little help at wide receiver later on the second day of the Draft, and Roby might be a target they are eying. Roby, who played in the rugged Big Ten at Indiana, is one of the fastest wide receivers in the Draft. His blistering 4.36 40-yard dash makes him very attractive.

Why the Atlanta Falcons would be interested: Peerless Price has not been performing to the level many had hoped and Michael Jenkins, who was selected by the Falcons last season using a high pick , spent most of the year as a backup. Roby can stretch the field and can help the Falcons on special teams.

Final Say: There is a decent chance the Falcons could pull the trigger on Roby, if he is available on the second day.

Scout.com: "A reliable receiver who consistently makes the tough catch, Roby must learn to transfer his speed and athletic skills onto the football field consistently. Played well during Senior Bowl week making many believe the poor talent he played with in college hampered his development."
