When looking at why the Atlanta Falcons were so bad in 2014, the first thing that pops into mind is the complete lack of a pass rush. The Falcons need to improve on it if they want their defense to turn into one of the best units in the NFL.
And while there are many ways to improve on the pass rush, Atlanta should specifically focus on the kinds of guys who force double and triple teams with their disruptive efforts—whether that's on the interior of the line or on the outside.
They should also be focused on guys who would be versatile within the scheme.
Bringing in a guy who can only rush from one side and one spot severely limits what you can do with him. So Atlanta would be wise to work in at least one of the following five guys into its offseason plan.
