NFL Draft '07: Scouting Georgia Tech 

Coming off what had to be a disappointing season, Georgia Tech lost three very every winnable games in ‘05 and the result was a minor bowl appearance. The offense should be incredibly strong this season and offers a top ten selection. 

A prototype NFL possession wide out, Calvin Johnson is a dominant pass catcher and probable top ten selection in 2007.  Displaying outstanding focus and concentration, Johnson effortlessly moves his large frame around the field boxing out opponents or physically beating them down to come away with the ball.  A solid blocker, he also helps the running game by removing defensive backs from the action.  Johnson does not have speed to stretch the field but his size coupled with natural pass catching hands makes him very enticing for the next level. The early word is Johnson will declare for next April's draft. Junior running Tashard Choice now moves into the starting spot with P. J. Daniels on his way the NFL.  A nice sized back, Choice is an elusive ball handler with outstanding cutting skills.  If he takes his game to another level Choice will be a first day pick in the '08 draft.  Quarterback Reggie Ball is a terrific athlete with an NFL arm and the running skills required to pick up yardage carrying the ball.  As a passer he lacks fundamentals and makes a lot of poor choices.  Undersized for an NFL quarterback, he could find his way onto a roster as a third down ball handling specialist. 

The Jackets lost a lot of talent on defense yet offer several prospects to keep an eye on.  Tackle Darryl Richard missed most of last season with a torn knee ligament yet showed major NFL ability as a sophomore.  Senior linebacker KaMichael Hall is an undersized but explosive defender who plays with terrific speed.  Covering a lot of area on the field, he has potential on the weak side at the next level.  Cornerback Kenny Scott is a nice sized cover man who also plays with good explosion.  Possessing the speed necessary for the NFL, Scott looks like a good fit for a zone system.
