By D. Orlando Ledbetter

Each morning until the draft starts on Thursday, we’ll do a short profile of a player who’s on the Falcons’ Draft Board. We’ll focus on team-needs, possible selections, players the Falcons have worked out and/or interviewed, etc. The Falcons own 10 picks in this draft. Today we’ll look at Florida State center Bryan Stork, who’s was scouted by the Falcons at his Pro Day.

Player: Bryan Stork

Position: Center  

School: Florida State

Height and weight: 6-4, 315 pounds

Pro Day Numbers: He ran the 40-yard dash in 5.44 seconds, broad jump of 8 feet, 1 inch, 5.02 short shuttle and 7.9 three-cone drill.

Projected Round: He’s the seventh rated center in the draft and is projected to be selected in the seventh round or be a free agent by NFLDraftScout.com.

Career Highlights: He made 40 career starts for the Seminoles and anchored the line during their improbable run to the FBS National Championship last season. He has some versatility and has been cross-trained. He played some right guard and worked out at tackle during spring practices. He won the Dave Rimington Award as the nation’s top center last season and was a first-team All-ACC pick by the league’s coaches and the media.

Quotes: Here’s Stork talking about his chance of making in the NFL with the Detroit Free Press.  

Falcons level on interest: Moderate to Low. The Falcons have two seventh round compensatory picks and Stork could be a candidate. The Falcons need to create quality deep along the offensive line.

Here are the Falcons draft picks:

  • Round 1 — No. 6 overall
  • Round 2 – No. 37 overall
  • Round 3 – No. 68 overall
  • Round 4 – No. 103 overall
  • Round 4 – No. 139 overall (compensatory)
  • Round 5 – No. 147 overall
  • Round 6 – No. 182 overall
  • Round 7 – No. 220 overall
  • Round 7 – No. 253 overall (compensatory)
  • Round 7 – No. 255 overall (compensatory)

I have a bad feeling about this draft for the Falcons, Gm is going to blow 10 picks to move up for some one we could pick at 6 watch and see.

Still not proof reading your copy I see.

How many 225 lb. bench presses. Two years ago we got Konz in the 2nd round knowing he had a strength problem and some medical problems.

It's amazing......4 years ago Brian Stork was named Peter "King" Konz & some idiotic GM/HC partnership thought he was a 2nd rd pick. :(

"Improbably Run to the FSB Title Game"

Improbable run, Ledbetter??

For Auburn maybe, not for FSU.

FSU was top to bottom the 2nd best Program in the Country last year.
