Atlanta Falcons: Five positions that need addressing in draft

6 of 6

1) Linebacker

While it might not show up in the stats, the Atlanta Falcons’ linebacking corps were pretty bad in 2015 and have been for a few years. A lot of changes are looming and nobody’s job is safe at this point in time.

Middle Linebacker Paul Worrilow could be on his way out of Atlanta due to an expiring contract and Brooks Reed could be on his way out as well.

Reed was given a 5-year contact last year but had an atrocious season. If I were the Falcons I would be looking to trade him away for anything and everything.

Justin Durant had a very stable 2015 season at outside linebacker and may keep his starting job in 2016 but there are no guarantees.

Next: What players do the Atlanta Falcons need to re-sign?

Many 2016 mock drafts have the Falcons drafting a linebacker with their 17th overall pick in the draft and that will likely happen.

Names like Myles Jack and Reggie Ragland have been thrown around as possible targets if they were to fall that far into the draft.

Who would you like to see the Falcons use their draft picks on?
