With all the offensive talent the Falcons have, you might have thought they would be drafting much later on in each of the seven rounds but this year that wasn’t the case.
Outside of maybe a few offensive depth issues, the Falcons don’t have a glaring weakness on that side of the ball. Defense, however, is a much different story. The Falcons have all kinds of issues on the defensive side of the ball.
Earlier in the season, the Falcons scored 37 and 36 points against the Saints and the Bengals, respectively…..and LOST BOTH GAMES!!!!
They need help all over this defense in various ways. The lack of prominent pass rushers and depth at the second and third levels really doomed this defense last year and I fully expect the Falcons to fix the majority of these issues in the upcoming draft.
As a matter of fact, I better not see one pick for the offense within the first four rounds UNLESS its help for the offensive line and it better not be a first for second round pick. I DO NOT and I repeat DO NOT want to see receivers, running backs and especially a quarterback drafted in the first few rounds…..scratch that…for the first FIVE rounds.
With that being said, let’s go through how this draft should go……Atlanta Falcons, you’re on the clock.
