Here is my attempt to sum all McDaniels trades: In exchange for Jay Cutler, Brandon Marshall, Tony Scheffler, Peyton Hillis, a third-round pick, two fourth-round selections, a sixth-round choice, a seventh-round choice and a conditional late 2011 pick, the Broncos have acquired Kyle Orton, Thomas, Tebow, Brady Quinn, Robert Ayers, Alphonso Smith, Richard Quinn, Seth Olsen, Perrish Cox, Decker and Miami's second-round choice in 2011. Orton was the sole member of that group who started for Denver in 2009. Ayers, a defensive end chosen as a pass-rusher, played on passing downs and did not record a sack. Richard Quinn, a tight end, had no receptions. Smith, a cornerback, mainly played special teams and Olsen, a guard, did not get into a game. Thomas, Tebow, Decker and Cox will be rookies.

Atlanta: Linebacker, defensive tackle, guard, guard -- the top of the Falcons' draft was tough guys, not glory-boy luxury picks. Because Atlanta's first two draft selections of 2009 missed their rookie seasons with injuries, the Falcons will enjoy a major talent infusion at training camp. In 2009, Atlanta basically had a bad year, yet won nine games -- 2010 could be a year for a serious playoff off.

Might be the best draft review for Atlanta that I've read.
