5) Atlanta Falcons

The Atlanta Falcons may be the most underrated team on this list heading into 2015. While none of their moves were overly flashy, the Falcons have very quietly constructed a very good roster. Every weakness on the team was addressed including the coaching. Mike Smith is out, Dan Quinn is in! The Falcons added pass rushing specialist, Vic Beasley in the draft as well as Adrian Clayborn in free agency. the Falcons also added linebackers, Justin Durant and Brooks Reed to help shore up the linebacking core along with Paul Worrilow who has notched at least 100 tackles in each of his first two seasons in the NFL. The Falcons have also added running back, Tevin Coleman in the draft who is highly liked around the league and will provide Atlanta with a solid rushing attack in 2015. The Falcons have a top 10 quarterback, top three receiving core and a defense that is much improved. Watch out NFC.
