Brett Helms
6-2/286 LSU
Senior

Pros: Has pop off the snap and shows good hand use and footwork in pass protection. Does a nice job getting position and takes good angles. Is a capable cut blocker. Does a nice job blocking on the second level. Works well in the shotgun. Shows good strength for his size.

Cons: Lacks size and can get pushed around when he's left on an island. Will miss some assignments when blocking on the second level.

Overview: Helms is undersized, but makes up for it with his steady, smart play. Started mostly at center, but saw some time at guard during his career at LSU.

NFL Forecast: Helms has the potential to be a starter at the next level. Won't be anything special there, but more than capable of getting the job done. He's a solid player that needs to get bigger and stronger to better match up with the defensive tackles in the NFL. But he plays bigger than his size already, so another 10 pounds could make him really solid.

ATL Forecast: Helms is a similar player to McClure, who also hails from LSU. But Helms plays bigger and with added size could be a nice upgrade over McClure. He is not going to be a star in Atlanta, but could be a solid pivot man for years just like McClure. He has the potential to beat out some of the reserves already on the Falcons roster, but it would be a heated competition.

Value: Helms is worth a late round pick that I'd take him the seventh round.
