With Johnny Jolly potentially coming back to the league, I pulled up the 2006 rookie group (Ted Thompson's second draft). That was also the year of the waiver wire (a one year experiment).
A lot of the draft picks are still playing and Will Blackmon is trying a comeback as well.
If Blackmon sticks in Seattle, the 'Hawks will have two members of this class.
