Atlanta Falcons To Fill Defensive Holes with Youth

Take a look at the Atlanta Falcons' draft class.

It won't take you three seconds to figure out where the holes are on this team.

With seven of its eight selections coming on defense, Atlanta has some serious questions to ponder as it heads into the summer's training camp.

Will Atlanta be relying on a rookie defensive tackle up front? How secure can fans feel about the linebacker situation after the Falcons didn't re-sign Keith Brooking and Michael Boley?

The secondary was average last season, so how will this unit react after losing Lawyer Milloy and Domonique Foxworth?

With the Falcons facing a grueling schedule this season, these questions will need to be answered with positive results early if postseason possibilities are in this team's future.

Atlanta addressed the minimal concerns on offense by signing Tony Gonzalez and retaining every key member from 2008's squad. There aren't too many worries there, especially if quarterback Matt Ryan keeps progressing.
