Atlanta Falcons: 3 things we can learn from Bucs’ Super Bowl win
Three things the Atlanta Falcons can learn from the Buccaneer’s Super Bowl win
The Atlanta Falcons were sitting at home Sunday night watching their NFC South Divisional rivals in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers compete and win a Super Bowl in dominating fashion.
The Falcons finished the season with a 4-12 record and possess the No. 4 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
After three years of disappointing, Falcons fans are hoping the franchise can turn it around and become a competitor in the near future.
While it’s certainly not fun to see an NFC South rival win the Super Bowl, there are some things we can take away from Tampa Bay’s victory.
3. You’ve got to win the first two rounds of the draft
Do you know what the Buccaneers did in last year’s draft? They won the first two rounds by a large margin.
They drafted Tristan Wirfs- who was probably the best rookie OT in the league this season- and then they followed that up with a diamond in the ruff pick in S Antoine Winfield Jr.
Both of those guys came in from Day 1 and were starters. They helped solidify positional units that needed to be addressed. That’s what the Falcons have to do. You have to draft starters in Round 1 and Round 2, and they need to be guys who can come in and make an immediate impact if you want to make a quick turnaround like the Bucs did.
