Under general manager Thomas Dimitroff and head coach Mike Smith, the Atlanta Falcons have been known to be reluctant when it comes to releasing their draft picks: Of their 26 total draft picks from 2008 through 2010, only six are no longer with the team.

Surprisingly though, of the 2008, 2009 and 2010 draft classes, only the last has remained entirely intact; all seven of those players drafted are still on the roster today.
