Atlanta Falcons: Top Needs & Fits for the 2014 Draft

The fact that the Atlanta Falcons hold the sixth overall selection in the NFL draft isn't the kicker; the quality of depth at every position of need is. Already possessing a franchise quarterback, two premier receivers, a good linebacker corps and a future star at corner, the Falcons have plenty of talent already in the fold. 

They will undoubtedly focus on strengthening both lines of scrimmage through the draft and free agency. Atlanta can easily come away with impact players on both sides of the ball, and trading back with QB-thirsty teams would pilot the process. 

With the combination of Thomas Dimitroff, Scott Pioli and Lionel Vital at the helm, expect Atlanta to maximize its potential in the draft as all three have areas of expertise (defensive backs, linemen and running backs, respectively) that will serve the Falcons well, in terms of need. 

The talent is plentiful and so are the Falcons resources. Let's take a look at the top needs and fits for the Falcons in the 2014 draft.
