Scouting the ACC Title Game

A pair of surprise contestants square off for the ACC title game. Wake Forest comes off a Cinderella campaign and offers several potential middle round choices. Georgia Tech on the other hand possesses a great amount of NFL talent including possibly the first pick of the draft.

Joe Anoai DT 4Sr 96 FA Undersized but high-effort defender who could be used as a three-technique lineman.
Reggie Ball QB 4Sr 1 7th Outstanding athlete whose NFL position is yet to be defined.
Tashard Choice RB 4Jr 22 3/4 Compact runner very productive this season after moving into the starting role.  Offers a good amount of upside for the next level.
KaMichael Hall OLB 4Sr 35 3/4 Terrific weak-side linebacker prospect coming off a good season.  Possesses a lot of speed and would flourish in a one-gap defense.
Calvin Johnson WR 3Jr 21 1st Game-controlling/game-breaking wide out who could well-be the first pick of the draft next April.
Darryl Richard DT 3So 95 4/5 Terrific talent slow returning from the knee injury which sidelined him in '05.
Kenny Scott CB 4Sr 2 4/5 Solid cornerback best in man-off coverage.
