What Are the Atlanta Falcons' Needs in the 2013 NFL Draft?

Aaron Nagler@Aaron_NaglerNFL National Lead WriterJanuary 21, 2013

The Atlanta Falcons finally got the playoff monkey off their back, but now face a long offseason of "What if?" ahead of them. 

This is a team that is deep and talented, but NFL rosters are always evolving, always changing. The saying is "You're getting better or you're getting worse," and general manager Thomas Dimitroff will be charged with making the moves necessary to get what is clearly one of the more talented teams in the league over the hump and into the Super Bowl. 

Matt Miller and I rounded up a bunch of football fans, gave them hats and B/R swag, then headed over to Highland Park here in New York City and tried to figure out where the Falcons have the most pressing needs heading into the 2013 NFL draft. 

Let us know in the comments below where you agree or disagree with our assessments and what other needs we might have missed.
