Post-Draft Outlook: A closer look at the Falcons' picks: Round 4/125 -- Lawrence Sidbury, DE, 6-2, 266, Richmond...He has a nice combination of speed and size. Sidbury also has run the 100-meter dash on Richmond's track team. He also throws the shot put. Sidbury posted the fastest 40-yard dash time (4.5 seconds) at the Scouting Combine in his group of defensive lineman. He will have a shot to land a spot in the DE rotation. Has a nice spin move, but needs to refine his techniques. - by The Sports Xchange
