3 positions (besides QB) that are holding the Atlanta Falcons back
The Atlanta Falcons are suffering on the interior defensive line
Ignore Grady Jarrett in all of this because he has been the heart and soul of this position for the Atlanta Falcons for quite some time. He is the least of their problems.
The position was a problem prior to Ta’Quon Graham’s injury, so it has only become an even bigger issue. Graham was playing great this year, so throw him into the mix for next year, but besides those two players, the rest are expendable.
We need a big, powerful guy on the inside to help Dean Pees’ defense. Right now, they cannot get any interior pressure on opposing quarterbacks and they were just run over by the Commanders and Steelers.
Could Jalen Carter from Georgia be the solution? Maybe, but he will likely be gone before the Falcons are on the clock. All in all, they just need to find help on the interior of their defensive line, per usual.
