The Atlanta Falcons top brass, Mike Smith and Thomas Dimitroff, are preparing for their biggest draft since 2008. They have to get their situation turned around from the 4-12 season to another winning one. This team has too much talent, both on and off the field, to finish with a losing record.
In 2012, they were in the NFC Championship Game and just 10 yards from the Super Bowl.
The lost 2013 season left them with a ton of inexperienced depth playing almost every snap of the year. They need to improve depth throughout the squad.
With 10 picks, Atlanta could trade up in the draft and still address the necessary depth needed throughout the team. A few starters at some vital spots, or at least added competition in those areas, are needed as well.
