Atlanta Falcons: How can they become more successful?
6 of 6
1) Find a pass rush
You could have the best linebacking corps and best secondary in the NFL, but if you don’t have players who can rush the quarterback, none of that matters.
The Atlanta Falcons have finished last in the NFL in sacks each of the past two seasons and are nowhere near being an elite team when it comes to rushing the passer.
The Falcons drafted pass rushing specialist Vic Beasley with their first pick in 2015 but one player isn’t going to do it all. Atlanta needs to go out and draft or sign a pass rusher to help compliment Beasley and turn this group into one of the best.
If the Falcons can form a good pass rush, this defense will be one of the leagues’ best in no time.
