This article focuses on the Atlanta Falcons rugby football team in the U.S. Michael Jenkins, a first-year starter, has impressed coaches since his return from an ankle injury that kept him out for two games in November 2005. Jenkins already was a good downfield blocker, the result of extensive work on special teams last year. Jason Webster clearly is faster, particularly on deep routes, and does a good job of making tackles and defending the sidelines. He lost his starting job to Kevin Mathis late last season but has started 11 of 13 games in 2005. Roddy White always has been fast.
