"TEAM PREVIEW (included in every article of series)There is no hiding the fact that this team is going to look new, fresh, even strange. We will not be seeing Mike Smith on the sidelines anymore, but a new face. Dimitroff and the new coaches are going to want to make changes for the city of Atlanta. Players will be released, they won’t be resigned, and new athletes will come in from the NFL Draft.Keep in mind that this isn’t a team that is rebuilding. This is a team that has one of the better, if not the best, quarterbacks in the NFL in Matt Ryan, arguably the best wide receiver in the league in Julio Jones, and a play-making cornerback, Desmond Trufant."

The defense needs help. After ranking dead last in yards allowed by the end of the season, there is no doubt that Thomas Dimitroff needs to make some changes. But with plenty of cap space and plenty of more draft picks to come after the first round, there’s definitely a high chance that this team decides to go offense with their first pick.

In comes Amari Cooper.

“Cooper is a master at creating separation by setting up the defensive back with his footwork off the line of scrimmage,”

Cooper is highly believed to be the next Odell Beckham Jr, the next big thing, which is why every fan wants this kid. His footwork off of the line of scrimmage is unmatchable, and he explodes with a toughness that many doesn’t have.

He also has those special, soft hands. He seems to bring in the toughest catches and I’m not only talking about those jump balls. Cooper can bring balls in that were thrown in a tight window. He isn’t afraid to absorb a hit, which is one of the reasons of why he was so successful in college.
