    ESPN Scouting Report out - don't draft this guy, he's dead.

    A True Draft Risk
    The draft handicapping is clearly very encompassing in 2007. ESPN.com has hundreds of players rated on their DraftTracker, including Albany (Ga.) State's Antonio Atkins.

    Atkins' draft status could, however, be clouded by his April 2006 death. Atkins was apparently shot and killed while breaking into a house. While different teams have different philosophies, most consider death to be a major impediment to future success in the NFL. Accordingly, ESPN.com does have Atkins's scout rating at 20, the lowest number assigned on the site. He is also the 145th-ranked player at this position out of a possible 145.
    145th out of 145?
    Well - that's probably because HE'S DEAD.

    Someone could always string him up Weekend at Bernie's style. I suppose that's why he's worth the 20.

    What are the implications for drafting a dead guy?
    Could you still sign him and use his ass for a tee?

    Easy to negotiate his reporting bonus, since you know he won't show up.

    Think of how the guys that didn't even make the list feel. Getting beat out by a dead guy.

    What's worse?
    Not being one of the top 145 RBs available for the draft or knowing that #145 is better than you as a rotten, maggot-strewn corpse?

    Can he play Wide Receiver? He probably has better hands than Troy Williamson.

    Dead guys have won political races, why can't they be drafted in the NFL?
    I'm putting him into my mock and it will still be as good as most of yours.
