The 6-1, 290-pound Atkins was described in PFW's 2010 Draft Preview as an "undersized, explosively quick, one-gap penetrator" whose "value is limited by his lack of stamina and inability to be an every-down player."

The son of former of Dolphins and Saints S Gene Atkins, Geno Atkins recorded 36 tackles and three sacks as a senior at Georgia.

The Bengals have signed three of their nine draft picks: Atkins, OG Otis Hudson (Round Five) and WR Dezmon Briscoe (Round Six).
