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

09/12/12 - DE Lawrence Sidbury was one of the seven players declared inactive for last week's season opener against the Chiefs. It was a surprising move as Sidbury enters his fourth season with the Falcons and in playing in all 16 games last season tied for second on the team with four sacks.
Sidbury, a fourth-round pick in 2009, had seven tackles and a sack in four exhibition games this preseason. He was joined on the inactive list by fellow defensive end Jonathan Massaquoi, a fifth-round pick this year. The Falcons played with defensive ends John Abraham, Ray Edwards, Kroy Biermann and Cliff Matthews, a seventh-round pick last season who was inactive for all 17 regular-season and playoff games.
"It's my job, but they always say you can only control what you can control," Sidbury said. "It's my job to come to practice every day, perform, produce so I try to do that to the best of my ability. I think I did a pretty good job of that but outside of what happens, what kind of decisions are made, are out of my hands. It's my job to come out and work hard, produce and I'm going to keep doing that."
