Well the only ones that have me excited at all are Bergeron and Thread. Everyone else seems cannon fodder.

I actually think that Pannozzo and Travis Williams actually have the best chance to make this roster. Williams was a player I expected to get drafted in the 6th or 7th round as a LB that teams convert to S. Usually there is always one in the draft, and i thought it would be Williams this year.

Bergeron = wasn't he on the georgia force? If it's the same guy, then he's very comparable to someone like Kevin Curtis for the Rams.

Yeah, it is the same guy. I feel pretty good about predicting the Falcons interest in Bergeron: http://www.falcfans.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1337

Although it was pretty much a no-brainer. If the Falcons didn't go after him, it would be a sure-fire indicator he sucked.
