The Atlanta Falcons sure did drop a number of spots after pulling off a late win over the Buccaneers, didn’t they?
Well, the good news at least is that the plethora of defensive talent fills needs even this late in Round 1, meaning a banged-up and underachieving defensive line should get some reinforcements with a player like Michigan’s Rashan Gary.
Gary is flexible enough to move around the defensive line, which should clear things up for outside rusher Takkarist McKinley to become more effective in his role.
Atlanta could add some help to its secondary early, which might be the route taken on day one of the draft. But Gary is widely viewed as a top-10 talent, meaning the Falcons taking him at No. 14 would be a steal.
